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.

for experienced riders. Begin with a safety briefing before grooming and tacking up your horse. After a brief lesson with an instructor to assess ability, take a delightful hack across the beautiful bridleways of Chiltern Hills - mainly open and undulating fields, with beautiful views across Bedfordshire and historic Icknield. Stop for lunch at a village pub before riding back to the stables for the un-tacking and resting of the horses. This is an idyllic way to take your horse riding further while soaking in some truly stunning scenery.

Forest. You'll begin with an introductory briefing from your ranch hand while enjoying coffee and bacon rolls, before you head up to the field to meet your horse. After learning how to groom and tack your horse, you'll have a Western riding lesson in the arena - this is easier to grasp than the traditional English riding style and a lot more comfortable too! After a barbeque lunch you'll put your skills into practise by riding a Western trail into the forest. Your experience concludes back at the ranch where you'll untack, rub down and feed your horse before enjoying a well-earned coffee.

a 30 minute introductory lesson and assessment. Once confidence is gained, follow up with a ride into the Epping Forest countryside for a full hour. After a safety briefing the instructor will introduce a horse and teach the finer intricacies of how to groom and tack up. After the ride, untack and rest the horse before going inside for refreshments of tea, coffee, cold drinks and a variety of cakes - the perfect end to a perfect experience.
