WHAT TO WEAR
Riding / Jodhpur Boots or boots that have a smooth sole and a small heel must be worn. The heel prevents the foot from slipping through the stirrup iron and getting stuck. Wellies or boots for Beginners are fine.
Proper horse riding gloves can be obtained cheaply but any kind of gloves that prevent rubbing and blisters on the hands and provide protection in the cold winter months would be suitable.
Jodhpurs are recommended but any long trousers such as leggings or tracksuit bottoms will be fine. Jeans can rub and pinch so are not the best thing to wear. Shorts and skirts are not suitable.
A long sleeved top, sweatshirt or properly fastened jacket is preferred. Clothing shouldn’t flap about and shoulders must be covered, so vest tops are not advised.
Long hair must be tied back in a low ponytail or plait, or placed into a hairnet. No jewellery should be worn, especially earrings and necklaces, and no items such as mobile phones and keys should be kept in your pockets. Valuables can be given to the instructor to keep safe while you are riding.
Body Protectors are optional at Balcultry but an increasing number of our riders are starting to wear them.
