We recommend that clients invest in at least the basic riding wear, which will enable them to ride in comfort. While riding hats can be initially borrowed from us, once you have decided to ride regularly at WVS, it is important to have your own hat professionally fitted to ensure maximum protection. Footwear needs to be of a sturdy construction with a smooth sole and small heel to prevent your foot slipping through the stirrup. We are able to lend hats, boots and chaps to those who do not yet have their own. For those without jodhpurs, full-length stretchy trousers are an adequate substitute, with long thick socks for extra protection.
We ride out in all weathers so it a good idea to have some warm, waterproof clothing for cold and wet days. Please take a look at our SHOP page for details of all the nearest shops that sell riding clothes. You can also buy our very reasonably priced special WVS clothing (sweatshirts, t-shirts, jackets, etc) on-line from Emblazon.
