Riding is a great form of exercise. From handling heavy equipment to working core and other muscles. Riding improves overall physical fitness, including co-ordination, balance and joint mobility.

Horse back riding has long been recognized as one of the most therapeutic activities you can engage in. Horses have a gentle nature and strong intuition, making them great human companions.
Horse riding is not easy. As you develop skills needed to effectively ride and care for our horses. You will develop characteristics such as self confidence, responsibility and leadership as well improve your physical fitness level and agility.
