Horseback riding is a thoroughly fun and beneficial activity. Learning to care for and control an animal much larger than yourself can have a profound effect on your confidence. Regular riding improves core strength, stability and coordination and is a great way to stay fit. A horse can also be a quiet friend who is without judgment. In short, horseback riding takes you to a better state of physical mental and emotional wellness.
