Horseriding is a fun and challenging sport for all. Learning to ride can take time and it is amazing how many people think it will be as easy as it looks on the telly.

A rewarding pastime for anyone when they get over the first couple of months, it is suprising what you can accomplish at any time in your life. It is thought that everyone has to be born in the saddle. This is simply not true, you can learn to ride at any age as long as you can get over the initial fear when you get up close to a horse, they tend to look very big and fearsome when you are not used to them.

With the help of a good instructor you will find yourself able to do all the usual sort of things like hacking (posh term for going out for a ride), a little bit of jumping (if you are brave) and will either become completely hooked or decide it really is not for you and go back to knitting or something.

Prices vary across the country and it is worth shopping around to find out where you get a good deal. It is always worth visiting a couple of stables, speak to the instructors, look at the horses. Do the customers look happy? Try to find an instructor that you will be comfortable with. Ask questions if you are unsure of anything. Most of all enjoy your riding, you may end up in even deeper than you intended with your own horse and all the fun that comes with it.

Advantages: Healthy exercise, good company
Disadvantages: Muscles ache initialy
