Increased balance, muscle control, and strength: Horseback riding gently and rhythmically moves the human body in a manner similar to the human walking gait thereby providing the upper and lower body sensation and mental image of walking. It stimulates passive exercise, which increases cardiovascular, musculatory, and respiratory strength.

 

Increased concentration, patience, and discipline: Activities such as grooming, identifying parts of tack, maneuvering through an obstacle course, and learning a simple dressage pattern provide opportunities for problem-solving, impulse control, and sequencing.

 

Improved social skills and personal relationships. As a social creature, the horse will readily bond with humans with no pre-judgment, in this unique relationship trust and communication can be developed.
