WHAT SHOULD I WEAR FOR LESSONS?
All the required items can be purchased from the C.E.C shop.
Hats must be worn at all times when mounted correctly fitted and fastened. We have hats you can use if you are just visiting the area or have just taken up riding. If you have a riding hat, bring it along and ask your instructor to check it for current standards.
Riding boots or Jodhpur boots ideally should be worn, however, any closed toe flat shoe or boot with a smooth sole and a small heel would be acceptable. Trainers are not acceptable. They are unsafe.
Thick leggings or trousers that offer freedom of movement. Jeans have been known to cause friction. Legs must be covered at all times i.e no shorts or skirts.
Clothing should be suitable for the weather conditions. A long-sleeved shirt, a properly fastened jacket that is not flapping or a sweatshirt, are recommended.
Body protectors aren't mandatory but are recommended for any lesson involving jumping.
We strongly recommend that riding gloves are worn whenever riding.
All long hair should be tied back.
No jewellery should be worn whilst riding or handling horses. The only exceptions are the wearing of a wedding ring and watch.
Ultimately it is your responsibility to be dressed correctly in accordance with the above information before riding.
