When entering the equestrian field some athletes find themselves focusing on one discipline to specialize in. Others, like Tik Maynard, top eventer and natural horsemanship trainer, enjoy trying their hand at many different disciplines and skills within the sport. Some of you may remember seeing Tik and Mini Horse Ruby participating in a few clinics at the 2018 Massachusetts Equine Affaire late last year. After those demonstrations, we got a chance to sit down with Tik to learn a little bit more about his successful equestrian career and just how he balances so many hobbies and skills both within the equestrian world and out!
Breeches are an essential part of any English rider’s wardrobe. Once you’ve tried them, you’ll never go back to riding in jeans, whether you’re training, showing, or even heading off on a leisurely trail ride. Dover Saddlery is here to help find the right pair of breeches for you.
If you or your child is new to riding, your instructor may have mentioned the prerequisite of riding in a boot with an approximately 1” heel. The small heel is meant to prevent a rider’s foot from sliding through their stirrups. Although it is not fool proof, finding the right pair of riding boots is important for your safety, comfort, and efficiency in the saddle.
