Horse Riding Holidays Packing List

The exact items we recommend packing for your Horse Riding Holidays will vary according to your destination, and we will send you a full and detailed list once your holiday booking is confirmed.

As a general guideline though, here’s the Packing List we recommend for every riding holiday:

  • An approved riding hat suitable for climate you are heading to (i.e. lightweight for hot climates)
  • A shade hat with strap, or woolly hat for cold climates
  • Two pairs of short riding boots
  • Two pairs of leather, suede or synthetic short chaps
  • Sunglasses on string, riding gloves and bandana
  • Spain Sierra Tejeda Photo32Two pairs of cotton riding trousers
  • Two long-sleeved shirts
  • One jersey, fleece, or multi-pocketed waistcoat
  • One lightweight waterproof windbreaker jacket
  • In winter months or cold climates: some very warm fleeces, thermals and jumpers, a warm jacket, and appropriate rain gear (we will advise)
  • Plenty of socks and we suggest unpadded cycling shorts for men as underwear
  • Shorts, T-shirts, sarong, bathing costume and flip flops
  • Sun block, lip salve, insect repellent, talcum powder and medications
  • Torch and binoculars
  • A camera on a strong shoulder strap, and film if not a digital camera

Please also note:

  • We advise that you also pack some riding clothes in your hand luggage, for the event of your main bag being misplaced by your airline
  • If your Horse Riding Holiday includes a transfer by air to a more remote location, luggage must be confined to a weight limit of 12 kg per person, packed in soft bags, so as to fit on the light aircraft used. Any excess baggage can be stored at the main office.
