- Travel documents
Check to see whether you will cross any national borders on your route. If you will, bear in mind that you may need a passport or a visa.
Make sure you have the appropriate documents before you leave.
- Heated equine wear
The horses are used to the conditions. But you might not be – it can get very cold in some parts of Scandinavia. And heated clothing is no luxury at all.
Happily, we have a heated range of jackets, socks, insoles and gloves for horse riders.
- Protect your head
You should take your own equestrian helmet with you on a horse riding holiday. We don’t need to tell you how important it is to protect your head and your own equipment is always safest.
