Getting Started – Riding Clothes & Equipment

Get Back To The Basics with BHEC!

For your comfort and safety, we require a few basic items.

For your INTRODUCTION LESSON, you will need a pair of boots or hard-soled shoes with a 1/2″ heel, no hiking boots. Whatever you choose, make sure they are comfortable and fit properly. We do have boots & helmets for rent, but may not always have the right size boot.

After you have taken the INTRODUCTION LESSON you are ready to begin standing lesson appointments. You will then be required to wear proper riding attire.
