Horse riding is a fantastic sport, which is suitable for all ages and physical abilities. Whether you want to emulate your heros by competing against fellow riders, have ambitions to own your own horse or just want to enjoy some peaceful time in the open countryside, learning to ride through horse riding lessons is ideal. As well as being an enjoyable experience, riding also challenges your physically and mental fitness. It’s extremely effective for establishing your core muscles, which are key for balance and being able to mirror the horse’s movement with your own body.

Learning how to persuade half a tonne of horse to do your bidding during your horse riding lessons is extremely rewarding. The emotional connection between horse and rider is something that can be hard to describe to those who haven’t experienced it, but once you’ve had it, it’s something you won’t want to let go.
