I signed up for Ranch Camp. Do I need cowboy boots and a ten gallon hat?

You are in for a great week of horses. We partner with the nearby Boy Scout Camp for the horse portion of camp.  It is extremely helpful to have shoes with a heel to help with riding in the stirrups, like any kind of hiking or work boots.  Cowboy boots are not necessary though.  And, all campers wear riding helmets when with the horses, so a cowboy hat is only for your comfort and style when not riding.
