Beginning Riding Lessons

WHAT TO WEAR TO YOUR FIRST RIDING LESSON

While it isn’t necessary to go out and purchase a full riding wardrobe for your first lesson, there are a few must haves which will make your experience safe, comfortable and fun.

ASTM CERTIFIED RIDING HELMET

This is the single most important piece of equipment you need to own. Approved ASTM riding helmets must be properly fitted to the rider so they don’t slip or fly off during riding. Riding helmets are designed specifically for riding and the types of injuries a rider could experience. Substituting a non- sport specific helmet such as a hockey helmet is NOT recommended and is to be avoided. Borrowing or purchasing a used helmet which could have structural damage not visible to the eye should be avoided. A reputable tack shop will carry certified helmets and will be able to assist you in selecting a properly fitting helmet.

PROPER FOOTWEAR

While wearing a pair of riding boots is a good idea they are not essential. Wear shoes/boots ...

Recreation Memberships

The Manitoba Horse Council (MHC) offers a special membership category for Recreational Riders!

This membership was created because we sincerely believe that the future of MHC lies in acquiring a strong recreational membership base. Equestrian competition will always be an important aspect of the work of the Manitoba Horse Council, but the reality is that most of the equestrian enthusiasts in Manitoba, and across the country, are not competitive. They are involved with horses and ponies of all types and breeds for the sheer love of the animal and the love of the outdoors. And theirs is a voice that has not been represented adequately through the provincial body for equestrians in this province.
