Horse Riding Safety
The first and final rule in horse riding is safety. You may have the horse, the saddle, the stirrups and the outfit but its worth nothing without the proper horse safety gear and equipment.
We have a range of gear needed to ensure the safety and protection of the rider as well as the horse.
These horse riding helmets might not look all that protective but they are. They have a hard skull cap and visor with a secure chin strap to ensure they stay on your head even if you do not stay on your horse. Even if you are just going for a short trot or exercising your horse around the yard, you must wear a safety helmet.
Body protectors are special horse riding safety gear designed to cushion your chest and stomach against falls, headbutts and kicks. Made of woven materials to spread the impact around critical areas, these vests are essential if you are new to riding or if you have or are getting on an unfamiliar horse.
Many people think that sunglasses are just for style, they are not. Sunglasses protect your eyes from UV Rays and also from dirt or stones thrown up by the horse’s hooves. Sunnies are essential accessory when riding in a group or on bright days.
