Updated: Apr 28

Horse riding is a big part of Britain’s history, and nowadays it is considered a sport and entertainment nowadays.

Here are a few benefits your child could get while learning horse riding:

  • Self Assurance and Confidence Booster: Learning and mastering the skills in riding a horse and caring for an animal that is double of a child’s size could be inspiring and empowering. Through continuous encouragement and constructive guidance, the children will learn to be sure of themselves while following instruction, and each jump is a positive stimulation to train their brain to make decisions on their own. The children will also train to be more focused and in control, and those experience acquired from horse-riding ign will improve their concentration and managing of different things in life include time and emotion management.

Megan Hawkins, PR Executive for the British Horse Society, emphasises: “Riding is suitable for all ages, and especially for children with special needs, interaction with horses can really help build their confidence.”

  • Outdoor time free from Modern Household and Electronic Devices: With nearly 10% of 4-and-5-year-olds are obese while approxiately 13% are overweight, letting the children go outdoor and learn how to ride or groom a horse will make them physically and mentally active with plenty of fresh air and sunshine. Staying indoors is not always bad, but it is very tempted to just sit in front of a screen and have a soda pop.
