  • All riders to wear appropriate footwear. Body protectors (where worn) and hats should be to current standards. It is your responsibility to check. If you plan to wear an air jacket whilst mounted, please advise us (session organiser or instructor) in advance, so that riders of nervous or young horses may be made aware, (deployment may startle horses).
