Your attire should be comfortable. Think t-shirts or polo shirts (not spaghetti straps). Jeans, not shorts. Or feel free to wear riding attire you already have.
Consider the weather, it can cool down when the sun goes down.
Helmets will be provided or you may bring your own.
While we do not advise riding with your phone, we do recommend taking many pony selfies when you are finished.
