Looking at getting into horse riding? Here‘s a quick introduction about the sport and some of its health and fitness benefits!!
Horse riding is one of the funniest and most effective ways to get your kids become more physically active. As this sport requires the body to fully utilize the core muscles, thighs and pelvic muscles to keep balance on the horse, it is a great isometric exercise.
