Horse Riding Tips and Information for Equine Riders

Horse riding is one of those activities that move quickly from being a hobby to becoming a real passion. Equestrian activities have been shown to benefit children, people with disabilities and those who need to gain confidence in their athletic abilities. It provides a social venue as well as an intensely satisfying human-equine relationship that affects personal discipline as well as relatedness and tends to make people happier and more functional in other areas of their lives.
Some people come to riding through watching shows, either in television or in local arenas. Cowboys and cowgirls demonstrate the excitement of Western riding, and formal horse competitions teach novices the basic ideas behind jumping and dressage. It's no wonder that hundreds of children begin riding each year!

A Note to New Horse Back Riders

    Because horseback riding is a specialized sport, new riders probably work harder at acquiring information before actually attempting their first riding lesson. Although you can't really understand what it is to ride a horse before trying it, you can prepare for your first lessons by reading about horses and riding and learning as much as possible about the ideas behind equestrian sports before you meet your first horse. Like visiting a new country, horseback riding is completely new –in language, in understanding and in activity—to most people. Prepare your education by reading about horses and riding in the articles below.

The Right Saddle for Cutting or Reining

For cutting and reining horse events, you definitely need a saddle that’s designed to help you "ride in balance and sit the stop." First, you want a saddle that was designed and built specifically for reining or cutting. Both of these designs have their individual advantages but remember, just because the manufacturer "calls" it a reining saddle doesn’t mean it was designed "well" for reining.
