My 3 kids go horse riding. And yes, I must admit that it is an expensive hobby but there are benefits too. It teaches them to care for animals, that things take effort and keeps them fit. They also really enjoy it. However my biggest gripe is that when we head for a lesson, it feels like we are going on holiday for a month. By the time you pack 3 helmets, riding gloves, boots etc you have a huge bag or several small ones. This does not even include clothing like jodhpurs. I would love it if I could buy a bag like the one below by kerrits that could fit in all their stuff but I doubt they make one. I wonder if anyone does? Meanwhile 3 bags it is!
