Tips for Horseback Riding

Before you begin to ride your horse, there are some things you need to learn like mounting the horse, leading it to walk, reining, trotting, jogging, or to lope and others.

Here are some helpful tips…

Make sure your horse stands still when you are mounting your horse . It is not suggested to mount on closed areas with low headrooms and is better suggested to have it on open areas.

While horseback riding, one of the tips is to keep your heels down because it prevents your foot from being caught in the stirrup if ever the horse got startled. Take note of the proper body alignment by keeping your head and shoulders up, sitting straight or leaning slightly. It will ensure you the safety for riding.

Horseback riding suggests you should wear sturdy boots and manipulate your ride. Assemble your leash for you to feel a light contact between your hands and the bit. Clutch the body of the horse near the girth area by both using your legs. Cue with your seat together by your legs by leaning forward evenly with your seat muscles.

While trailing, you should gauge the direction you will direct your horse. Remain relaxed and supple and your balance is not shifted to one side.

Indication when to halt, to close your fingers and squeezing backwards are extra additional horseback riding tip. The horse will stop when he feels the backward pull on the reins. If the horse is hesitant to stop, you have to apply a firmer, stronger aid, tugging towards the rear.

You have to establish the walk routine first and if you’re ready, cue your horse to trot. The signal will be the pressure of the legs and sitting snugly at the saddle. Manage to sit and keep your body accommodating. Once you’ve discovered the rhythm, try to stay with the motion to avoid getting left behind.
