The benefits of learning to ride

Childhood is full of stories, songs and role-play games about horses so learning to ride can add an exciting new dimension to a child's experience of their four legged friends. Aside from the obvious benefits of good physical exercise in the great outdoors, horse riding installs many other intrinsic qualities in our kids, including:-

  • A life long love of horses that brings different rewards at different stages of childhood
  • An inspiring and positive reason to keep active
  • Good co-ordination and balance skills
  • Improved social skills
  • Confidence - learning to ride and care for an animal that's twice their size can really empower children

Responsibility - taking care of horses, feeding them and keeping them healthy teaches children about caring for others.

It's also an effective form of release - being in the great outdoors will enhance your child's sense of happiness, help them to feel less stressed with a general feeling of well-being. Experienced riders also talk about the freedom the sport provides and that there's nothing more exhilarating or rewarding than riding a horse in the great outdoors.
