Horse riding is a very attractive and stimulating free time activity for the little ones. What makes this hobby special is the possibility for children to establish a bond with the horse. Children will build a nice connection with their four-legged friend as you visit him regularly in the barn, clean him up, feed him and take his first walks with him. At the same time, your child will learn to be independent and responsible.
Some children begin to show their desire to learn to ride a horse from an early age. There are specialized centers that offer the possibility to the little ones to ride a pony, so that they become familiar with the discipline. These first experiences will serve to start riding later. In addition, they will help your child test his balance and exercise his body while riding. The starting age for horse riding depends on each school. The previous step of riding a pony or small horses is offered by some centers for children from 4 years old. Ideally, your child should also help clean, feed, and carry the pony. In this way, he will learn to interact with animals with confidence and security. In most specialized schools, children start riding large horses, whose height from ground to back exceeds 148 cm, from the age of six.
Apart from the right size of horse for each child, it is also important to take into consideration the character of the animal. Many riding schools offer calm and docile horses for beginners. Depending on the breed to which a horse belongs, it will be, in general, more docile or with more temperament. However, the breed of a horse is not a determining factor in determining its character, which is why some experts recommend not focusing so much on the breed, but on the way the animal itself is. Adult horses are usually more recommended for beginners, as well as geldings, which tend to have less temperament, since they are not affected by hormonal changes, while stallions are not usually suitable for children and people who are new to riding..
