Benefits of Horseback Riding
Horseback riding can be a relaxing and peaceful activity. Some health benefits of horseback riding include:
Develops Core Strength: a rider's strongest set of muscles is their core. A rider must maintain proper riding posture and will need to engage their core muscles to stay balanced on their horse.
Improves Coordination: A rider must work to maintain coordination with their horse and the horse's own movements.
Exercises Mind: As the rider communicates with a horse, executes movements, overcome obstacles, your mind stores this information and makes it easier to complete the same tasks the next time you ride the horse.
Develops Problem Solving Skills: How to stay safe and in control of your horse, as horses can be unpredictable, like any other animal.
Develops muscle tone and increases strength: In addition to horseback riding, riders can develop what's called "stable strength," where riders usually participate in demanding physical activity around the stables, where the horses are kept.
