Riding gear for the riders
People from all the age groups engage in horse riding, either as a hobby or professionally. Apart from the horse riding equipment for the horse, the apparel for the riders often plays an equally important role.
For a good and comfortable horse riding experience, a great saddle is a prerequisite. But just getting the right saddle is not the end of it since a particular saddle size is not necessarily suitable for all the riders and all saddles do not necessarily fit snugly on all the horses. After the right saddle is chosen, the saddle fitting part is the next important thing. Apart from the riders comfort, a good saddle fitting is necessary for the health and safety of the horse as well....
We've been doing the Donatello long boots by Tredstep for a while now, and they are still firm favourites among our customers. Priced at under £200 and with a variety of calf widths, they are very comfortable and smart, and great value for money. Team them with a pair of the Tredstep Pure Ultra Cool silk long socks for a sleek competition finish.

Finding the right kind of saddle is of utmost importance for a comfortable riding experience. Once you know the shape of your pony it is easy to find the right kind of saddle. There are different kinds of saddles meant for different shapes of horse and for different riding activities.
Regular exercise is a must for horses no matter what is happening and how bad the weather is. It is not good to go without some or the other form of exercise for your horse. Even during wet weather, hot summers or the cold winters there is always the need to exercise your horse. In the wet weather riding can be uncomfortable as it is difficult when you are soaking wet. But sometimes you just have to go in the wet and there is no way round it!
