  1. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I am looking for a riding helmet. I've read that ASTM approved are a safe option but other than that I know very little about choosing a helmet. In my area, very few people wear helmets and I understand that it is a personal choice, but as an unskilled beginner I feel like I should at least give...
  2. Draft Horses
    I am currently writing an article for one of my classes about cost effectiveness of draft horses, or mules, versus tractors. I was wondering if I could get some input from you guys. Thanks in advance for your time and answers. 1 What breed would be best suited for the work? 2 What is average...

    Hi! I am new to this forum, but I hop that it is ok if I post this here. Enjoy! I am not surprised that a lot of equipment is ruled OUT for competitions, but I am surprised how much equipment is REQUIRED. Why? There already is some discussion about allowing some different bitless bridles in...

    I'm looking for a horse to do eventing with, but I'm wondering, aside from the horse and obvious things like saddles and bridles, what equipment would you need to purchase for the event? Like, clothes and safety gear? For horse and rider?
  7. Therapeutic Riding
    I have been riding since the age 9. (23 now) Sadly I developed a severe knee displasya with muscle dystrophia and mild scoliosis, and have been given weird advices from doctors, so my riding has not been as regular as I would like to (year on year off pretty much) Finally I decided just to...
  8. Technology
    I'd really like to establish a small recording studio at home. There are a few reasons why, but mostly it's because I've been wanting to record some songs I've written and I really enjoy playing music in general. I'm a student and I am not intending to become some hit star or anything :-P, (this...

    I was just wondering whether anyone had ordered anything from ridingwearonline.co.uk because they have some great deals at the minute but I don't want to order stuff if it's poor quality, won't arrive or the on-line payment system is faulty. Just wondered if anyone had any previous experience of...
