To become an accomplished rider and horseman it is essential that the relationship created with your horse or pony is built on trust, compassion and understanding. Once the bond is formed the horse and rider team are able to achieve their goals, whether that is at the top level of competition or just as a happy hack.
It is important to ensure that, as a rider, you are wearing the correct clothing. Safety is paramount with high visibility clothing, hats, body protectors and air jackets being indispensable no matter what you are doing. Jodhpurs, breeches and footwear can all add style, without losing functionality.
