I'm finishing up my lessons at the small family owned barn that I currently ride at and I have a basic sort of grasp of riding (I've been going since spring for weekly lessons and now lease a horse there as well). I will be continuing my lease with my instructor but am hoping to move to another barn this fall for further lessons.
Here's the thing - at my lessons I'm used to toying around with both english and western riding, and it was all very informal. The new barn I'm going to is all English and do a lot of jumping, and seem a lot more strict. I'm not sure what kind of equipment they'd expect me to have for lessons there!
I just recently bought a pair of riding tights, a pair of breeches, paddock boots, and half chaps. I've got my own helmet and my friend gave me her gloves that don't fit her anymore. Would you add anything else? Does the shirt that I wear matter?
Thanks for the help, sorry for the long post!
