Horse Riding Tips🐴🐴
Want to know the perfect horse riding tips and tricks?? Well you have come to the right place!
How to pick a riding school/instructor:
1. You need to search online all of the riding schools in your area, and if they have reviews read them!
2. Once you have seen all the schools in the area it time to pay them a visit!
3. Ask if you can sit in and watch a lesson, this way to can see how well the instructor is trained, and how the horses look.
4. Once you have chosen your riding school it is time to get the gear!
Usually, the schools let you borrow hats until you buy your own. Make sure you really want to commit before buying anything because it Doesn't come cheap😁🐴
What you will need:
You will need a helmet for starters, but as I said before they let you borrow hats, so there is no rush. You will need a whip. you will need to get a brand new one and not a second hand one off the internet because you don't know what condition it will be in.
You will need riding boots and if you muck out, separate boots for that too. Anything else you might need will be in any horse riding shops near you. (Your instructor will tell you the best places to go) 🐴❤️
Bonding with your horse:
For a better ride, for better trust between you and your horse, you will need to bond.
You could start by giving him/her treats like carrots and apples, if your school allows you.
Give them pats and tell them they are a good boy/girl if they have worked hard or they have performed well. Talk to your horse. It might seem strange but they are like dogs and cats they pick up words and understand. They might not know the meaning but they understand.
How to hold the reins:
Hold them you would like a coffee cup. Make sure the reins are coming into your hands and out the top like a sort of loop. (Pictures next do you understand better😁😂🐴) have four finger wrapped around the reins and your pinky behind.
See what I mean?
Sit on your horse with a straight back, your collar bone strait and keep your balance!!
Keeps your reins short but not so short that it's hurting your horse.
Your feet need to be in line with your shoulders for the perfect posture.
Give your horse a break!! Don't hold the reins too tight you will hurt your horses mouth.
Don't constantly whip your horse because she/he will get angry and fling you off!! Also you might hurt it. When you need to do it but only once but mean it.
When giving instructions to your horse make them as clear as possible if you don't the horse will get confused and do nothing.
Remember, these tips are from my experience and some of them might not apply to you/ happen to you so don't get worried!
