Equestrianism is the skill of a person in riding a horse, it is otherwise known as horse riding. The art of equestrianism dates back, as some archeologists say to 4500 BC, and is one of the oldest acquired skills of humans. Horse riding has an integral part in the development human culture and is a decisive factor for the rise and fall of civilizations and empires. Egyptian chariots use the power of horses to carve up their ancient empire in the Nile delta. The Persians and Greeks both tactically used horse riders to influence every battle to their advantage. The Roman Empire is created through the sheer power of her army and Cavalry, and even the largest empire the world has seen, the Mongol empire was successful due to the power of the horse rider.

Today, after the days of total dependence to horses for mobility and transportation due to the invention of the horseless carriage, the art of equestrianism is now a leisure sport to keep the senses keen, mind nimble and make one physically fit. Even if horse riding today is regarded as a sport, one must still employ age old equestrian clothing whenever riding a horse.

Every equestrian needs certain protective clothing to prevent them from injuries that can be sustained while horse riding. These are some of the equestrian clothing needed by every person wanting to ride a horse.

The Riding Hat or Helmet- the helmet is the most vital of the entire equestrian clothing for any horse rider. It is so important that the ROSPA (Royal society for the protection for accidents) requires all to wear riding hats whenever riding a horse.

The Breeches- this is a type of trousers specifically for equestrians, this helps provide protective covering for your legs while maintaining full freedom of movement without restrictions. This is perfect when worn with long riding boots.

These are some of the main equestrian clothing wear essential for equestrians. Like in all sports, protective covering is important to ensure the enjoyment and prevention of accidents from happening.
