What does one need to be able to ride? Apart from a horse naturally?

A saddle and bridle is the immediate answer! Sure, but which one do you need?

An obvious decision depends on what type of riding you wish to pursue. Somehow a Dressage saddle would is not the thing for show jumping!

Of course one can use an all purpose saddle, the best thing for most people, until one decides how one wants to ride.

 

With the bridles it is exactly the same thing, and the variety can be sometimes very confusing.

Then you need Girths, Stirrup leathers and irons,

 

 

 

 

 

Blankets, Boots and bandages, everything needed for every kind of riding.

Whether one really needs all these things, or whether one wants to ride with a simple rope. it is always the horse that is in the centre of it all. Whatever is best for the horse must be the most important aspect for us.
