Riding AttireThe most important element of the Fremont Hills lesson program is safety. Those not following safe practices will not be allowed to participate in the program. Please review the following guidelines before participating in lessons. These practices will help all horses and riders have a safe & enjoyable experience.
- An approved riding helmet is required every time a rider mounts a horse. A bike helmet is not acceptable; in the event of a fall, a bike helmet may not be sufficient to protect the rider's head. Riding helmets must pass a series of strict requirements to be approved, and are designed to withstand the impact of a fall. Helmets in a wide range of sizes are available for loan at the stables, but it is recommended that you purchase a helmet of your own for the best fit. See Useful Websites for places to find helmets.
- Boots with a 1" heel are required for riding. Sturdy boots are required for riding and working around horses (no sneakers or sandals). Inexpensive rubber riding boots are recommended for children, as they tend to outgrow them quickly!
- Loose jewelry is not recommended while riding or working with the horses.
