ABOUT THE TOPIC

The health benefits which one can achieve by doing horseback riding are as follows:-

  • Helps in developing core strength:- One of the strongest muscles of a horseback rider is his/her core strength. While maintaining a proper riding posture on the horse, requires the exercise of the core muscles as well as back and chest muscles a result of which helps in improving core strength. It also takes an engaged core to maintain a balance on the horse.
  • Helps in improving coordination:- Coordination is one such skill that is mandatory for horseback riding. Because the rider not only has to coordinate his/her movements with that of the horse, but also have to direct the horse in the right direction and over obstacles like barrels, fences, etc.
  • Encourages trust:- To become a successful horseback rider, the rider must have to build a trusting relationship between him/her and the horse. Like other animals, horses are also unpredictable. While riding a horse, if the rider has been thrown or injured then it takes a long time and a huge amount of effort to gain that trust between him/her and the horse. Therefore, in a horseback riding lesson, one must have to work out on trust-building exercises with his/her horse.
  • Helps in exercising of the mind:- Unlike seating activities, horseback riding offers both physical and mental exercise. Mental exercise is one of the most important benefits of doing horseback riding. As one learns how to communicate, execute movements, and overcome obstacles while riding, his/her brain stores all this information on how he/she accomplished these tasks.

CONCLUSION

From the above, we can conclude that while one does horseback riding it benefitted his/her body or health in the above-mentioned ways. So one who thinks horseback riding is very difficult and risky, they should have to try it once as it helps them develop new skills as well as helps to stay physically and mentally fit and those who are doing horseback riding, please keep on learning new skills and keep on riding horses.
