It is important to ensure your safety while horse riding as it involves falls and risk. Safety should always be a priority. Make sure to have well-fitted safety equipment. One of the safety equipment is a helmet. One can get an inexpensive helmet in the beginning. The helmet can be a cowboy hat or a standard helmet with leather detailing. One can get a helmet according to personal choice. One should try to get a helmet that is lightweight as it keeps the head cool. While horse riding the common problem is a sweaty head, therefore a helmet with soft leather material should be chosen. A vest is also a body protector. When one falls, it saves the internal organs and absorbs the shock of the fall. One can also get an air vest that provides a cushion across your neck and sides and inflates via CO2. A comfortable vest that allows movement and is lightweight is desirable.
