Horse riding is for absolutely everyone, regardless of age or ability! Your local riding school will generally provide you with a helmet so all you need to wear is comfortable clothing (e.g. t-shirt and leggings), layers to keep warm and a pair of shoes with a small heel to prevent your feet slipping through the stirrups.
Riding improves your balance, co-ordination and flexibility by strengthening your core body muscles, toning the stomach and providing a great cardiovascular workout – you can burn as many calories trotting on horseback as you can by heading down to the gym for a workout!
Escape the hustle and bustle to indulge in a little ‘me-time’ and explore the local countryside on horseback or learn new skills and start with the basics at your local riding centre.
