Hi, you do not need riding boots. Closed shoes (like sports shoes)
Hi - we are visiting Bussot early september next year with our son and his partner. They are both in their 20's and have never gone riding but would love to try. Do you have rides for inexperienced riders please? What is the duration of the ride or event so we would know when to drop them off and pick up, finally (sorry) is your riding stable easy to find? Thanks - Lorraine
