We recommend that all our riders purchase a riding hat of the current BSI Standard fitted by a professional hat fitter. As we do not have space for a riding clothes and equipment shop at Wimbledon Village Stables we recommend the following local shops:

DECATHLON
The Decathlon Horse Riding Shop has a range of top quality clothing & accessories, so you’ll always feel kitted out whatever your equestrian activity. If you’re new to the saddle or a born rider, they’ve got a great range of ladies’, men’s and kids’ clothing, including boots, jodhpurs, breeches, gilets and quilted jackets to choose from.  They have also got everything you need to be properly protected such as helmets, body protectors & gloves.

Riding is a risk sport and no-one can guarantee that accidents will never happen.  At WVS, we have an excellent safety record and we always strive to take great care of you.  But, if it gives you that extra peace of mind, then you might consider it.

One option that brings other benefits with it, is to join The British Horse Society.  Their Gold membership includes both personal accident and public liability insurance.  For more information, visit www.bhs.org.uk
