Safety first makes it fun for everyone


Here one of my young students Madeline sports a safety vest while riding her horse Horatio. Proper equipment is a key element for kids to enjoy riding, because they can have fun and be safe. A proper fitting helmet, boots with a heel, half chaps, gloves, along with the vest gives the parents peace of mind that they have done everything they can to ensure a fun experience. Horatio is a very quiet older horse who knows that his job is to take care of his rider, these are the gems for kids, because they can learn safely without being over faced. Long gone are the days when I learned to ride in my jeans, muck boots, and helmet with an elastic chin strap! Sometimes I still wonder why did I even bother pulling that thin elastic chin strap down??? Now with the great helmet technology out there, plus safety apparel, lets take advantage of it! How do you stay safe while having fun riding?
