What To Bring For Your Stay

The most important safety item needed is appropriate footwear for horseback riding. The best and preferred style of footwear is cowboy boots or western riding boots. Other acceptable footwear is a boot or shoe that covers the ankle and has a minimum ¾ inch distinct heel. Tennis shoes and contoured soled hiking boots are great for OTHER activities but NOT for riding.

Wrangler jeans are best for riding because the double seam is on the outside of the leg not on the inseam and therefore more comfortable and helps prevent saddle sores. Really baggy jeans are not practical for riding.

If you wear a hat, a hat string is a good idea. The hat string is important because if the wind blows your hat off it can spook your horse and cause an accident.

If you have signed up for a Pack Trip, Cattle Drive or Overnight Trail Ride you will need to bring your sleeping bag. If you so desire you can ship your sleeping bag a few weeks prior to your arrival via UPS.
