What I wear to ride (for schooling or lessons):
-Jeans/riding breeches, helmet, shirt, & tall riding boots.
-Catch horse from the pasture & put on halter.
-Groom, & pick out hooves, also checking for anything unusual (like bumps & stuff).
-Put saddlepad on, & saddle.
-Tighten girth. (& then I tighten it before I get on of course!).
-Unhook cross-ties, take off halter.
-Put bridle on.
-Go into the arena or wherever I'm riding, lol.
-Loosen up the girth a bit.
-Take off bridle.
-Put halter on & cross-tie.
-Take off saddle & saddlepad.
-Brush the horse off (rinse/sponge if necessary).
-Give the horse water if needed & also walk around if needed.
-Put the horse back in turn out.
-Take off helmet, brush off boots, & get in the car! OR talk a bit lol.
