What should you wear when riding a horse?
Its getting warmer day by day, so for a strenuous sport like horse-riding a long-sleeve T-shirt with a light jacket is good enough. Don’t assume that you might feel cold riding against the wind, it won’t be long before you work up a sweat. So a heavy coat is not necessary. Remember to wear gloves, for the reins can be a bit hard on the hands, For women, please don’t wear skirts of high-heels. Normally a pair of jeans is simply enough. Or you can buy a pair of riding boots, which will make you look sharp, and more importantly, is convenient for horse-riding. There are a lot of people who are armed to the teeth.
What should you pay attention to when horse riding?
When you first begin riding you will feel awkward and unbalanced. You may feel unable to make your body parts do the things that are supposed to at the same time. You may be using muscles not familiar with the job you are asking. It’s common for beginners. The key is to follow the coach’s instructions and practice. Don’t panic or your horse might feel it and get fidgety too, which is not a good thing.
