Horseback Riding Tips for Beginners

  • It is super important that you wear a helmet at all times when horseback riding. Horseback riding is fun, but just like wearing your seatbelt in the car, wearing a helmet can save your life in case anything happens. 
  • Make sure you learn the basics of horse body language. One thing you should look at is your horse’s ears. If they are pinned back, the horse is upset and about to bite or kick.
  • Working on your balance is an essential part of becoming a skilled horseback rider. Check out this great article from the Horseriding Network for some great tips on learning how to balance on your horse.
