The purchase of a new horse is always a real pleasure for a rider, whether he is a novice or an experienced rider. It is a very emotional moment because you are about to meet an animal with whom you will spend a lot of time. It is therefore necessary to prepare yourself and buy the necessary equipment to be able to ride it. Which ones exactly?

Clothing for the rider

A rider must be well equipped to ride a horse safely and properly. The comfort is a watchword if you want to benefit at most from the horsemanship each day which passes. In MFB products you can find riding pants, boots and you will also need protective vests and jackets for your training sessions.

The equipment for the horse

The comfort of the horse, too, is a watchword for the rider. A whole list of equipment is essential to ensure its safety.

The saddle

 

To ride a horse, saddlery is a must. You need a good seat to benefit from a better comfort. The saddle must fit both the rider and the horse. It must fit the back of the animal so that it feels comfortable during riding. Saddles are different for different disciplines: dressage, jumping, competition, western, racing and polo.

The blanket

 

The blanket is essential to prevent the horse from getting cold. Some horses are also very sensitive to humidity, so they should be covered in the stable, for grazing or when riding. The blanket offers real protection in cold and rainy areas. It also protects the animal from annoying flies.

The reins

 

The reins are attached to the animal's teeth and to the bridle. The closed models are the most recommended for the classical conduits. These are rubber-coated for ease of handling. And if you are a western rider, loose reins are the way to go. It also depends on the horse's level of training.

The bridle

 

This is a bit with two rings with which you will attach the reins. It is placed in the animal's mouth. The bridle comes in many models made of a variety of materials. It can be made of leather, foam, rubber or metal. To each his taste and preference. Be careful, it is to be chosen according to your level as a rider.

The halter

 

The halter is the equipment you need to guide or tie your horse. It is a very useful piece of tack for riders of all levels. You no longer need the bit for this. The halter has a strap often with a chinstrap that should wrap around the horse's nose, a neck strap and cheek pads. It must be very comfortable so as not to upset the animal, especially if it is still being trained. The halter is available in several materials: rope, nylon, leather...

Ethological halters, on the other hand, have become very fashionable. They stand out from other models by their great finesse. By leaning directly on the chamfer, they offer more precision in the transmission.
