Women's History Month


March is Women's History Month and March 8th was International Women's Day! We are celebrating by highlighting a few very important women in the equine industry on our Facebook page.

We hope to share their stories and inspire all BR girls (past, present, and future) and raise greater awareness about issues impacting women and to celebrate women's achievements and accomplishments.

Horse Talks


What Should You Wear to Ride?

When it comes to horseback riding, what you wear impacts far more than how you look on the horse, wearing the proper attire and equipment affects how effectively and safely you ride.

Before you swing into the saddle, make sure you’re wearing:

  • An ASTM/SEI-compliant horseback riding helmet.
  • We have helmets available for rent ($10 per week) or purchase ($35) on incoming day.
  • Long pants like jeans, breeches, or jodhpurs.
  • Boots with a heel, so your feet don’t accidentally get caught in your stirrups during a fall.
  • A fitted long or short-sleeved shirt that won’t get tangled in the horse’s equipment.
