When buying horse riding boots, be sure to wear on your legs the clothes you will wear when on the horse, or clothes of equal thickness. Think about whether you would prefer a long boot or jodhpur boots with chaps or gaiters. horse riding boots which are too loose don’t allow the control of a well fitted boot. The foot can slip inside the boot meaning less control for the rider. Equestrian boots which are too tight will soon result in aches, pains, and general discomfort for the rider.

Don’t feed poor quality hay but instead feed and buy more efficiently. Feeding hay that is of a lesser quality does not usually make good sense because either the horses won’t eat all of it and it goes to waste, or you end up feeding more to make up for the poor quality. Instead buy hay in bulk and split it with other boarders or nearby horse owners to bring the cost down. Also shop around and buy local if possible. If possible pick it up yourself, with help of course, to bring eliminate the delivery fee. Although moving hay is an annoying job there are usually several people around the barn who can help. If your horse wastes a lot of hay then try putting it in a bag or holder up off the ground to eliminate that problem.
