What to Wear

  • One pair of riding shorts
  • 3 pairs of riding socks

  • 1 pair rain pants
  • 2 synthetic t-shirts

  • 1 pair of riding shoes
  • 1 pair of sandals

  • 3 changes of cotton/poly or poly underwear

  • Casual attire: a short-sleeve dress or sport shirt for men, a nice blouse or lightweight dress for women
  • Casual attire: 1 pair of poly slacks for the evenings.
