Horse Riding

There are a few benefits of horse riding, but the most important one is to become mentally in tune with your horse and they become a quiet friend who will not judge you. Horses are able to form companionship and form attachment to humans. 

They can read a human’s facial expressions and remember a person’s mood. Horses do seem to read some signals to indicate whether a nearby person is stressed or afraid.

Many horses like to be rubbed on the neck, shoulder, hip, or on the chest. Some horses enjoy having their heads and ears rubbed. Horses often groom each other on the whither, so this would be a good place to try too.

If your horse does not want to be pet or moves away, do not be upset. When you work with a horse, it’s advisable to look him in the eye a lot. … Because horse’s are an extremely observant animal and they study their surroundings. If you’re in their surroundings they are studying you too. If they see you looking at them in the eye it sends a message to them about who is in control.

Our horse trail goes through the local village, exploring woods and bush on horseback and is as relaxing as it gets. You can breathe the fresh country side air and feel as one with your horse as you travel through paths you could not get to by car or bicycle. Listening to the array of birds singing, noticing the butterflies and lizards crossing over the paths and pointing out the little rabbit disappearing into the bush… It is where your mind really rests.
