All About Horses provides certified helmets for the new rider. We ask that you purchase your own within three months of beginning lessons or before summer camp.
All About Horses OC requires helmets be worn at all times while mounted. Any certified ASTM/SEI helmet will do. Some recommended brands are Ovation for schooling (home barn) and K One Defender or IRH Helmets for the show student.
You don’t need to purchase these things all at once! All About Horses recommends recommend that you start with a helmet and work your way down the list.
Helmet – Properly fitted ASTM/SEI Certified Riding Helmet. Any color is ok but if you’re going to show at any point you will want need a black one.
Boots/Half Chaps – Paddock boots or field boots. Most riders find paddock boots with half chaps most comfortable. Black preferred. No rubber or PVC riding boots, please.
Breeches – Riding pants. Any color is ok but will need to be tan or khaki if you’re planning to show.
Crop – Any color is ok. You’ll want a black one if you show but make sure you put your name on it!
Spurs – Ask your trainer if you’ve “earned your spurs”. If so, you’ll want a ¼” spur with black straps.
