Riding horses give all the benefits of motor and sensory planning, developing balance, muscle tone, posture and general relaxation.
Horses are herd animals and intuitive beings
They respond instinctively; they have the ability to mirror/reflect back to us inconsistent behaviour, as well as body language. Through this we become more aware of what we reflect to the outside world.
Horse are honest
They are acutely perceptive, totally honest and have no hidden agendas.
Horses are large and powerful animals
They provide a natural opportunity to overcome fears and develop confidence.
Horses have distinct personalities, attitudes and moods
They help us learn to respect personal space and how to adjust to specific temperaments and environments.
Horses like to have fun
There is no natural distinction between work and play.
