Preparing Horse for a Ride


By Al Badia

Your horse is ready to go!

Before you ride, put on long pants and boots. Make sure they fit well, or they could chafe your legs while you’re riding. Next, put on a riding helmet to protect yourself from falling off in case of an accident.

Now it’s time to put the saddle on your horse’s back and insert the bit into their mouth.

To mount, approach them on their left side and place your left foot in their left stirrup. Pull yourself up onto their back by grabbing them by their mane with both hands and pulling yourself up as high as possible before sitting down in the saddle. You are now ready to ride!
