Horseback riding is an often overlooked recreational activity that actually has a lot to offer. Not only is it an out-of-the-box way to bond and explore with your loved ones, but horseback riding is also good for your health—both mental and physical health. Let’s talk about some of the benefits of horseback riding…
You gain balance and stability like no other. Stability is necessary to transfer energy into effort for any activity. Horseback riding really works your core, which is key to balance and stability. The increase in balance and stability also means you’ll have a heightened sense of body awareness which will benefit you’re everyday life greatly.
Increased flexibility is inevitable. Straddle a horse’s back long enough and you’re flexibility will increase naturally. Increased flexibility means better range of motion which leads to better quality workouts overall.
You’ll see improved overall strength in everything that you do. The specific benefits mentioned above combined with the improved coordination you’ll experience and the stronger core, thigh and pelvic muscles that will develop will give you total-body strength that is hard to achieve with most other single activities.
You get back to nature and see the world from a different perspective. When you’re riding along a charming tree-lined trail or a beautiful beach atop a graceful thousand pound animal, you will have a whole new appreciation for nature and the world around you. While you’re up there breathing in the fresh air and enjoying the magical sights, let go of the stresses of everyday life and really soak in the moment.
Your mental health will benefit immensely. Horseback riding has many positive mental health benefits; it teaches the rider patience, self-control, compassion and understanding—just to name a few. Horseback riding has also been said to have a meditative effect which is good for the mind, body and soul. Riding horses leaves you in high spirits, ready to take on the world.
You will notice enhanced mental capabilities as well. Horseback riding sharpens your quick thinking and problem solving abilities. It has also been linked to improved interpersonal and socialization skills.
