Horseback Riding Safety

The tour guides will tell you the horses name and temperament and teach you how to mount onto their backs. Everything you need to know about how to signal to the animal when you want to go faster or slower, left or right, will be explained to you. The horses are very well trained and they know which path to take so you don’t need to worry about doing much handling. Also, guides are at the front and back of the pack to make sure everyone stays on course and is safe.

It is important when on a horse to practice proper posture. Sit tall, yet relaxed and don’t forget to breathe. You need to use your muscles and posture to stay mounted. When you put your feet in the stirrups, your guide will adjust them to your height for you, after that make sure you have your heels down and point your toes out.

 

Benefits of Horseback Riding

The benefits of horseback riding are fascinating since it is great for your core, pelvic strength, and inner thigh strength which do the bulk of the balancing. Mentally, being on a horse is very meditative, when riding you must focus on balance, and the actual ride, will clear your mind of the many other distractions you might think up on a regular day. On a slightly spiritual level, horses are very intuitive creatures and pick up on the slightest amount of tension. They are very connected to their rider, and a lot of people say they feel connected to their horses while they ride, too.
