How to Make Horseback Riding Easy and Pleasant

Horseback riding can be both exciting and a challenge. Working with live animals requires some experience and lots of patience. Here are some tips to help the beginners.

When the horse seems unapproachable or aggressive, try walking in an arc toward him. This how you will become familiar for the horse. Avoid direct eye contact.

When in close proximity, extend a hand for the horse to smell. Pet the horse gently prior hop on it. Horses are trained to accept riders mounting on the left side, so follow this rule.

If you feel insecure on the horse, follow this: your shoulders and back should be straight, and the widest part of your feet should be positioned in the stirrup.

Stop the horse with a “whoa” call, followed by a halt cue of closing your fingers and pulling backward on the reins in conjunction with pushing your seat deeper into the saddle.
