    My opinion is If your just starting off in having some lessons its most important to find yourself a pair of shoes with a flat sole and a heel!:o

    This prevents your foot getting stuck in the stirrup if your horse spooks. Having a smooth sole lets your foot slip out easily and quickly.It also prevents being dragged.

    Boots are the best because they also protect the top of your foot. They're much tougher than runners. Getting steeped on by a horse can really hurt.

    Also if you have some stretchy comfy pants, I found tackies or yoga/gym pants the best.

    If you start enjoying the lessons I would think about buying a pair of half chaps/or full length ones (it comes down to personal opinion) and a helmet. Hopefully your ridding school provides helmets if you don't own one.

    Nowadays when I ride I use sticky bum jodies, tall boots or half chaps with jodie boots, gloves and a helmet..

    With all that said about safety I hope you enjoy the lessons!

    This probably wont help you as I ride english but oh well....

    Head-
    Helmet

    Top half-
    Generally a t-shirt and if its cold my nagwear riding jacket (not my show one...a waterproof, windproof kinda jacket)

    Hands-
    Black riding gloves or bare hands

    Bottom half-
    Comfy jodhs (but occasionally if it's really cold I wear trackies [tracksuit pants for those who haven't heard of tracky-dacks] over the top of them)

    Legs-
    Keiffer black half-chaps

    Feet-
    Black dublin daily jodhy boots (just general riding boots)

    Sorry because this probably doesn't help you one bit as our riding styles are very different.

    You don't need chaps for riding......i prefer them but you don't have to have them. Also a good pair of riding boots and a helmet is a good choice.

    i had a look at em.....great choice

    The zip up on the tall boots will help .......most times tall boots suck to your legs and are difficult to get off!

    I tried my sisters tsll boots on once.......i found that they were way too small in the toes and way to big up the top....i spose you can't win sometimes

    I ride in the most comfy jeans I have clean and what ever shirt I don't care to get horse boogers on! If its cold I wear a jacket again...one where horse boogers don't matter. I have ridden anything from barefoot with flip flops and with tennis shoes and boots... those decisions were dumb, dumbest and I finally got it right!

    I like my Dan Post boots...they are thin old style cowboy boots...I wouldn't ride if Fat babies...if you like them opt out for the Pro babies...they are meant for riding...same boot different sole.

    Thanks. :) Yeah, my friend has tall boots that do NOT zip-up, she regrets buying them. The zipper really does help. :)

    I don't ride western so I'll just post what I wear during every day riding:
    *Helmet* Charles Owen
    *Gloves* Baby blue in color, love them!
    *Ariat Boots/close contact half chaps*
    I always have spurs on as well, just a 1/4inch POW. I ride many different horses and you never know when you will have use for them.

    Then either jeans or riding pants, whichever pair is clean and first found. Then a t-shirt. I'm big into hoodies and I like vests so that's usually what I wear.

    *ALWAYS RIDE WITH A WORKING CELL PHONE ON ME*

    The pair of half chaps I own are the Close Contact ones from Ariat. They are the most comfy half chaps I have ever owned.

    When I was considering buying them I was worried about the zipper but these things have been thru quite a bit and they are not letting go at all. Strongly advise anyone to get them. They are fabulous!
