If you or your child is interested in horseback riding lessons, there may be various reasons why you’d like to take on this exceptional art form. Sometimes it is a love of animals, sometimes it’s because of a favorite television show, or maybe you have ridden before, but it’s been many years. While horseback riding lessons certainly offer each individual and horse something different, there are also some unique outcomes that comes from practicing this sport.
Poise – Horseback riding lessons offer the opportunity to hold yourself up in the saddle and guide your horse with poise and precision. Not only is this beneficial for the horse, who is sensitive to the rider’s needs, but also for the human being directing a majestic animal. Both horse and animal may carry themselves differently after only a few lessons.
Confidence – Another important outcome of horseback riding lessons for someone of any age is the confidence gained through lesson mastery and understanding of oneself and the animal. With trust at the core of the relationship between horse and rider, there are undeniable friendships formed, and confidence will grow with each lesson.
Compassion – Horses are smart animals and full of heart. As they learn and grow with their rider on board, each develops compassion for one another that is often an unexplained bond. This is perhaps one of the most beautiful outcomes of horseback riding lessons overall.
