Horseback Riding

Horseback Riding

Horses are elegant, graceful animals and it is no wonder that horseback riding has been a beloved hobby throughout history. Horseback riding is done throughout the United States, both for work and for pleasure.

Many people ride horses in a ring, but you can also go on trail rides or compete in equestrian events. Horseback riding is even an Olympic event, in a special equestrian event called "dressage."

To get started, you will need to take a horseback riding lesson. These are available through a large horseback riding stable, and also through private horse owners as well. Although there is special clothing you can buy for horseback riding, you can ride just as well in jeans and a pair of boots.

The Date Activity

Once you and a date have mastered the basics, horseback riding can be a great hobby which allows you to spend time together outdoors with these majestic animals. For a romantic date, try horseback riding on the beach, especially at sunset.

On Your Own / With Friends

Horseback riding is also easy to enjoy with a large group of friends. Trail riding is often the best way to go, as a stable will typically provide you with everything you need, including a guide. You can often get group discounts, which will make an afternoon of riding more affordable.

Horseback riding is something that you can enjoy all around the world, and many groups are heading to a horse ranch for vacation. These ranches range from a spa-like atmosphere to an authentic Western working ranch experience. Children love to ride horses as well, and can be taught easily along with adults. This makes horseback riding an ideal family activity.
