I started riding when i was 9 years old im 16 now. I started as i did not have alot of friends and school and i found it to be a great get away. I suffered from a form of bulimia between the ages of 11 and 13 where my body was rejecting food. The main cause of this i belive was the stress of changing schools. i become so week i couldnt ride any more and that for me was a turning point i made my self eat and i made my self stronger so i could get back in the saddle. The only time i felt completely free and away from the world is when i was having a good canter in the field it drained all the stress away and made me better i advise every one to ride.
Many riding schools i have been to through out the years range in prices.

practising being a cowboy or cowgirl with a Western horse riding lesson. After coffee, bacon rolls and a briefing, you will meet your horse for the day and get an introduction on how to groom and tack him. Skills in hand, it's time for a Western style riding lesson where you'll cover all of the basics (Western rather than English style, it's much easier and feels more secure so you can expect to learn quickly and gain confidence). After a busy morning, fulfil your appetite by tucking into a barbecue lunch before leisurely riding the trail into the forest during your afternoon session. At the end of the day you will untack, rub down and feed the horse, before turning him out to pasture.

East Sussex countryside for a full day of horse riding, perfect for both beginners and experienced riders alike. With a host of graceful horses, begin with a tour of the stables, learning about the horses the centre rescues and their stories.

It's a magical experience perfect for horse lovers.
