Horse Travel 101: What to Wear?


The Centauride’s YouTube channel has been revived! Starting with today’s new video, I will be posting new content regularly.  Want a video about something specific? Comment or contact me and I’ll do my best!

I’ve decided to begin the relaunch with a series I’m calling “Horse Travel 101,” discussing specific things about my ride that are unusual or curious about horse travel (versus other kinds of horseback riding activities).  My first topic is “What to Wear,” wherein I talk about everything I have on - all of which was chosen for safety, comfort, and durability.
