What to Bring for Black Mountains Trail

What should we bring?
Warm comfortable and windproof clothing  is vital for mountain riding. Unless you are ‘calf-hardened’ it is wiser to bring long riding boots or half chaps. Riding gloves can be useful if it is cold.  Layers to keep warm/ stay cool depending on the weather. Jodphurs, Breeches or tight fitting jogging trousers (tights/long-johns in cold weather) are a must.  Jeans are not to be worn whilst riding.  We advise everyone to come equipped with a long coat as this will keep you dry and also our saddles too!!   Hard hats are essential and must fit properly.  Don’t forget casual wear for the evenings and house shoes/slippers for indoors!

Can we borrow hats / boots / jodphurs?
Yes, we have a good selection of equipment for riders to borrow.  However, we encourage you to bring your own equipment to guarantee a perfect fit.

What if it rains?
We ride in all weathers!  We have long waterproof coats to protect you and our saddles for you to borrow, but if you have your own then do bring them along.
