What is horseback riding
Horseback riding or equestrianism is a practice of horseback riding that allows people to ride to discover places surrounded by nature.
In addition to the beauty of discovering the land, there are many benefits of horseback riding. Physical such as strength, balance, coordination and flexibility. Psychological such as awareness of the present moment, breathing, and last but not least, the unique connection that is created with the horse.
The horse is a noble and sensitive animal that fascinates and intimidates at the same time. Taking a horseback ride is also possible for beginners and/or those who are getting into the saddle for the first time. The instructor and companions will provide all the guidance regarding posture in the saddle, feet in the stirrups and how to hold the reins to handle the animal.
