    What kind of lessons?

    You need to ask your instructor what you need to wear. Safety before fashion.

    English or western, for safety you'll need:
    1) Boots with at least a 1" heel. You might have something that will do until you can get some boots, the 1" heel is a safety measure that helps keep your foot from going through the stirrup and getting caught
    2) Pants that go to your ankles, jeans are great
    3) A helmet if your instructor doesn't provide them.

    I'll get you some links for options

    I don't see how this is an urgent message. I clicked on this thread expecting to see questions about sickness or injury. Woops.


    Moderator's note:

    The title was reduced from "urgent" to the lesser "quick". On a forum like this, "urgent" implies a real emergency and should not be used lightly

    Cheap boots: $50 BootBarn - Jama Children's Broad Square Toe Western Boots
    Better Boots: $90 BootBarn - Ariat Kid's Quickdraw Western Boots
    Try thrift stores or craigslist, but I definitely recommend going to a physical store and trying on a brazillion boots to see what feels good on your feet and your correct size.

    I'm guessing you have jeans you can wear, :)

    You're riding english? Not my area of expertise, but look for paddock boots, like this:
    Cheap paddock boots: $35 Children's Saxon Equi-Leather™ Zip Paddock Boot | Dover Saddlery
    And cheap half chaps: $35 Children's Dublin Easy-Care Half Chaps | Dover Saddlery
    Tall boots eliminate the need for half chaps, but are usually much more expensive. Instructors also often have half chaps for you to use until you get your own. Ask your instructor if she/he has half chaps.

    Jeans are fine to begin with, you will probably want breeches eventually.
    Cheap Breeches: $25 Equi-Star Kids' Riding Breeches | Dover Saddlery

    And you will still need a helmet :) good luck with your lessons!
