Top Horse Riding Tips
- Always mount on the left side of the horse.
- Hold your reins in your hands. Do not jerk on the reins. This will hurt the horse's mouth.
- Pull your reins in the direction that you want to go, such as left to go left and right to go right.
- Keep only the ball of your foot in the stirrup. Balance your body with pressure in your feet, keeping your heels down and toes up.
- Hold on to your horse for balance.
- Wear long trousers and shoes with a slight heel. Trainers will be okay, but sandals aren't very good for riding.
- Do not walk behind a horse. They can't see you and could kick.
- Video cameras should not be carried while riding your horse. Take pictures before you leave on the trail.
