It is essential when riding to be wearing the correct attire otherwise the rider can sustain injuries and experience discomfort while riding. The correct riding gear is as follows:
- A hard riding hat. The hat must be designed specifically for riding. Bicycling helmet is not recommended.
- Jodhpurs or riding pants. Though these are a must to ensure the rider does not develop welts on the inner side of his/her legs. The first few lessons can be taken in long pants or jeans. No shorts and no caprice.
- Long socks. The length of the socks is important, otherwise the ankle and lower leg of the rider would be exposed and lead to injury.
- Riding boots or shoes with a hard sole. These are a necessity to allow the rider to comfortably keep his/her feet in the stirrup.
