Horse Riding

EQUIPMENT LIST

Our riding Brazil tours have no unusual gear required. But considering a trip to the warm tropical climate of Brazil and nearly all year round heat, it is important to not forget some items. Check a suggested list below:

SPECIFIC RIDING EQUIPMENT
- Riding Helmet/Hat: even not much used in Pantanal, it is recommended to bring your own for safety;
- Footwear: don’t need proper riding boots but comfortable shoes which don’t grab easily in the stirrup and you can also use for walk;
- Riding trousers: as the Pantanal rides western style, proper riding trousers are not essential; riders may decide to wear jeans or normal trousers. Half legs chaps are not required but are appreciated by many travelers for comfort on longer rides.
- General clothing: Long-sleeved shirts, t-shirts, shorts, swim suits, sandals, cotton socks, one set of warmer clothes, a hat or cap, light rain jacket; avoid bright colors and bring preferably comfortable and light clothes;

NECESSARY ITEMS

- Insect repellent;
- Medical kit (analgesic, cold/fever medicine, anti-diarrhea, antibiotic, eye-drops, plasters, personal medications, spare glasses or contact lens, etc);
- Personal toiletries (shampoo, toothpaste);
- Small backpack/daypack (also to be used as hand luggage);
- Credit cards and some cash (several places do not accept credit cards);

OTHER RECOMMENDED ITEMS

Remember when packing

Most types of transportation have a luggage limit weight per person. Check out the details about it according to your trip and itineraries.  As lighter you pack more enjoyable your trip gets, and helps to avoid problems with luggage’s excess of weight. In any case, traveling light is always better.
