Riders Dress Code


All riders are required to wear:


  • Riding helmets must be worn at ALL times when riding. This can be your own or you can borrow one of ours at no extra cost. 

  • Boots to prevent the foot from slipping through the stirrup iron. Sandals, flip-flops, or other open-toe shoes are not allowed. 

  • Long pants (riding pants, sweatpants, yoga pants, etc.) should be worn.

  • No flapping jackets. If worn, jackets must be zipped or buttoned while riding.
