The Horseback Riding Essentials
Before going to your horseback riding adventure, it is best to take note the outerwear you should be taking with you. Note the weather or the season around your area. We recommend this Back on Track Fleece Sweater perfect for the cold weather. Don’t get distracted by the cold wind and focus on the trail as you practice to perfection.
A pair of leather boots is perfect for horseback riding. Be sure to get a nice quality out there before you regret going barefoot half a mile of your trail destination. A usual length would be up below or past the knee, this is also to serve as a protection.

Pro or not, helmets and vests are worn for extra protection, unless you knew the horse from the heart. We never know what will happen out there so bringing these two essential could be a life saver.
Gloves, Hats, Mitts & Scarves
A little accessory such as this Back on Track Fleece Mesh Cap (for men) and Back on Track Fleece Headband (for women) can help add comfort when you go on a long ride or training, this can also serve as your head protection. Don’t forget to bring your cold weather essentials such as scarf or mitts.
