A Guide To Essential Horse Riding Clothes-www.q1se.com

Sports-and-Recreation Horse riding clothes needs to be practical, .fortable but yet flexible enough to let your body move with the horse. Everyday riding gear looks much different from show riding gear. Check for used riding clothes at car boot sales and tack shops. If your stable has a .munity poster board, post a notice for gently used horse riding clothes. For every day riding, the bare minimum is a hardhat, footwear with a definite heel, and form-fitting jeans, jodhpurs and thick socks to minimize chafing. A T-shirt or riding blouse will do for warm days. For cold days, invest in the best riding jacket, thermals and gloves you can afford. Jodhpurs Jodhpurs or breeches should fit like a second skin. Gone are the days when jodhpurs billowed out along the thighs. They need to be tight in order to be both aerodynamic and not snag on branches, tack or tops of boots. In North America, jeans are acceptable for everyday riding wear, but their heavy seams may cause chafing along the legs and genitals. Horse Riding Boots Paddock boots – which resemble thick shoes, riding boots or even well-fitting Wellingtons with a heel all work for every day horse riding. Show boots that reach nearly to the knee are difficult to walk in but may be required for whatever show class you enter. The heel is essential because without it your foot may slip through the stirrup. If you fall and the horse spooks but your foot is caught, you will be dragged. Wear two pairs of socks while breaking in any boots in order to prevent blisters. Hard Hat Never ride without a hard hat specifically made for horse riding. Do not use a bike helmet because it will not be strong enough to withstand a fall from a horse. If buying a used hat, check for dents. Never buy a dented hat as its ability to protect the head has been seriously .promised. Chin straps are essential for any hat that wiggles, even in the slightest. Gloves Thin leather or fake leather gloves are worn by some riders year round in order to prevent the reins from slipping due to sweat or to prevent chafing. If you plan to .pete in such classes as dressage, then wearing gloves is a requirement. But for every day riding, gloves are usually worn only in cold weather. Invest in gloves warm enough yet thin enough so that you can pick a house key up while wearing them. Thick gloves greatly interfere with your ability to control the reins. Cold Weather Riding Winter riding presents many challenges – even if riding is confined to an indoor arena. Thermal underwear for the top is advised. Thin thermals for the bottom are very expensive. Some riders cannot fit into their jodhpurs if wearing thermals. While riding, the top gets colder faster than the legs and bottom. Many riders prefer riding vests to riding jackets as vests do not impede any arm movement. Anoraks work well to pull over riding clothes on rainy days. Scarves can be useful to pull up over the nose on especially frigid days, but you must tuck both ends into your shirt or jacket so they do not blow about and spook your mount.
