Knowing The Main Accessories For Riding

Untitled-4-1

For those who want to dedicate themselves to riding, it is important to be familiar with the most suitable accessories for the activity. Check out a list of the must-have items on your list below and tips on how to choose them.

Whips

This instrument dates back to the most distant times of riding and, today, it has a different function from that time. This instrument is no longer used to inflict pain on the horse, but rather to establish effective communication with the rider when voice commands and leg movements are not sufficient. Therefore, the rider must learn how to tame and persuade the animal without resorting to sudden actions that will only lead to difficulties.

There are different models of whips according to the activity to be performed, braided models with a leather tip, riding whip models with a cable, and rubber tip, among others. The wrist strap on the whip makes it easy to handle and can be especially interesting for triple accessories. Some pieces stand out for being made of different materials, such as rawhide.

Gloves

Riding accessories for equestrians include elegant gloves that make handling the horse more correct, preventing the reins from slipping and slipping out of the rider’s hands. Gloves that have Velcro adjustment make all the difference in terms of comfort.

Gloves in this modality are largely made of leather and spandex. Gloves that have rubber drips are interesting to prevent the reins from slipping out of your hands, as they offer more grip. For those who prefer, it is possible to use cotton gloves to perform equestrian activities.

Riding Pants

A very useful riding accessory for cowboys and cowboys to carry out farm or stud activities. Worn over clothes, it protects the cowboy from the animal’s sweat and any injuries during the work.

In addition, these pants also allow greater mobility and adherence to the saddle. Riding pants usually feature reinforced seams. You can find closed models and parts that have open sides. The choice is up to your preference, which will make handling the horse easier for you.

Knee Brace

Equestrian activities can cause some accidents that impact the body, and it is essential to use safety accessories such as knee braces. Look for anatomical pieces and materials that allow good adaptability to your body such as neoprene knee braces.

Leggings

A piece was suitable for those who are going to ride wearing short boots and boots. The leggings are used to make the toe of the boot larger, to provide more safety for the rider to lead the animal. A short boot, without the addition of the leggings, can facilitate the occurrence of incidents.
