Equip yourself for a comfortable and safe horseback riding experience.

POSTED BY ANNA GRAHAM

Horseback riding is a fun, yet demanding activity. In this dance of trust and skill, every hoofbeat tells a story of mutual understanding between the horse and the rider. Yet, behind it is a lot of preparation and precision. The right equipment makes the difference between a memorable ride and a mishap. So, saddle up, and let's explore the essential equestrian equipment every rider needs, unlocking the gate to a world where passion meets practicality, and every ride is an adventure. 

Gear Bag

When you're preparing yourself for a day at the stables, one of the first things you need to grab is your trusty gear bag where you can store everything you need for a successful outing with your equine companion. If you’re looking for a quality model, I recommend sturdy Ariat bags. They hold together all the essentials for your riding adventure. They can withstand the rigors of barn life, whether you toss them in the back of a trailer, or they get accidentally trampled by an overzealous horse. 

However, durability isn't the only thing that sets Ariat bags in Australia apart – they also have plenty of sturdy pockets. Here you can store your entire grooming kit, including brushes, combs, hoof picks, etc. You can easily stash your riding boots, helmet, and even a change of clothes for those post-ride brunch dates with your fellow horse enthusiasts. You can also fit an entire pantry's worth of snacks in one of them, along with all your grooming tools and spare socks. 

Ariat bags are big on comfort. After all, lugging around a bag full of riding gear isn't exactly a walk in the park. That's why these things come equipped with padded and detachable shoulder straps, making it a breeze to carry your gear from the car to the barn and back again. Plus, with the iconic logo emblazoned on the side of your Ariat bag, you show off your equestrian style every step of the way. 

With over 30 years of experience under their belt, Ariat is synonymous with excellence when it comes to equestrian gear. From riding boots to apparel, their commitment to craftsmanship and innovation is unmatched. So, when you sling an Ariat gear bag over your shoulder, you make a statement about your style and your dedication to quality. It signals that you don't settle for anything less than the best when it comes to your riding gear. 

Tops

When it comes to riding clothes, comfort is essential, so look for shirts that allow you to move freely in the saddle. Seek out breathable materials that will not cause you to become too hot or constrict your movement.
