Why Horse Riding is Worth Doing

One of the most elegant sports in the world to take up, horse riding is every bit as entertaining as it looks to participate in. With the London 2012 Olympic Games on the horizon, horse riding is going to play a big role in the games, and with good reason. As challenging as it is exciting, there are many reasons why horse riding is worth doing. Here are five reasons why itโ€™s worth buying horse equipment to help get you started:

  • The clothes: by looking on the websites of specialist horse riding equipment retailers such as equestrian clearance chaps, jodhpurs and jackets look so much better than clothes worn in other sports. They combine style with comfort, and help to keep you safe while riding your horse.

  • Another reason why horse riding is worth doing is that you get to spend plenty of time outdoors. When riding a horse, you get to explore vast amounts of countryside, and you can go wherever you want your horse to take you.
  • Horse riding is ideal if you love animals, especially horses. By riding with one thatโ€™s been trained, you get to build up a rapport with them, and by putting your trust in them; you can ride safely.
  • Taking up horse riding can be very comfortable to do. While wearing the correct horse riding equipment, you will be able to ride without experiencing any bumps as youโ€™re secured onto your mount.
  • Horse riding is also fun to take up because, if on a special course, you can jump over numerous obstacles such as fences and ditches. Jumping one of those obstacles is one of the most exciting things you can do while riding a horse.

Ryz is fond of horses lately. She’s been watching this cartoon series, My Little Pony, and has a collection of their miniature characters. I wonder if she’ll still like them and be responsible to take care of them when she grows up. If she will, there will be a big possibility that horse riding will be her sport and hobby.

  2. I’ve ridden on a horse once when I was in Tagaytay, but that’s just the park’s attraction. I haven’t tried riding a fast moving horse yet ๐Ÿ˜€ I wish I get to do it within my life time though.. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Sumi, sa Taal Vista Hotel? hihi, we often go ride horses there too and the earliest memory of me riding a horse where sa farm pa back in Cavite. I don’t recall having chaps or any other riding equipment din…nga naman :/ Pero true, ang porma ng mga equestrian/equestrienne…

  4. The only time I was able to ride a horse was in Tagaytay. The horse with burloloys and colorful outfit and all that. Hehe! I was in elementary pa, but I remember it like it was yesterday. It was quite memorable, and the only memory I have with horses, except for the tartanillas here in Cebu that I have rode in. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. I only ride the horse once with my husband beside me….so scared of the horse ๐Ÿ™ now my little girl who is five wants to buy pony ๐Ÿ™ the boots looks perfect for any horse rider.

  6. My daughter started out riding as a hobby and went on to study Equine Management at a local college where she gained a distinction in her course. But, riding and learning about horses gave her so much more in terms of being organised, teaching, teamwork and discipline. She stills loves riding but has gone on to do other things using her skill. However, above all, learning to ride gave her confidence.
