It is possible to borrow riding boots with a small heel and helmets.

What's an Evaluation Ride? The Evaluation Ride is the first ride at our facility, where the Instructor will get a first impression of the riders skills and goals. We introduce the rider to the basics of horsemanship and riding. The basics reviewed in the evaluation lesson will provide the foundation for the riders’ future progression plan.
The Instructor will advise the rider with a suitable horse and instructor for reoccurring lessons.
