User Guide To Horse Riding Schools

Horse riding has been one of the most popular leisure activities in Australia. It involves two individuals -- the ride and the horse. It involves the skill of riding, driving, or vaulting with horses that is learned much more quickly, safely, and efficiently when taught properly.

Learning to ride well involves simultaneously relaxing and controlling your own body while sitting on top of a constantly moving horse. There are body signals or aids which can be used to communicate with the horse, while reading and responding to the horse's feedback. 

Almost every horse will need to go through more horse training to tolerate regular recreational riding. If you are planning to enter shows that require horses to jump or cutting, your horse may require additional training from a professional horse trainer. An experienced trainer can correct bad behavior from the horse. 

Tips on horse riding

  • Find a good reputable horse riding school using good training methods. It is easy to pick up bad habits and it might be difficult to correct them later on. 
  • Keep your heels down. It secures you firmly on the horse and it prevents your foot from being caught in the stirrup should the horse get startled.
  • Keep head and shoulders up and sit straight or lean slightly back. This puts you in a secure position for riding. 
  • Use good quality equipment to make horse riding safe and to make the equipment last longer as horse riding can be hard on equipment and on riders especially during riding cross country.
  • Lean back a little when your horse is going strong or lazy. This will make your seat stronger and push your horse forward into better movement.
  • Be mindful of what you are wearing. Some fabrics can cause you to slip easily.
  • Take riding lessons from an instructor seriously to make your riding experience as comfortable as possible.
