Riding is terrific exercise. Apart from its aerobic benefits, riding also helps a youngster develop balance, coordination, and flexibility.
Riding offers much more than equestrian know-how. Here's why horses can be a life-enhancing choice for your child.
"If your child likes animals and you're concerned about that child's problem solving, goal-setting, or decision-making skills, then definitely get him or her involved with horses," says Ann Swinker, Ph.D., a professor in Animal Science at Penn State University.
Horses make wonderful childhood companions. Children are naturally attracted to them, and that makes horses a desirable alternative to TV-watching, Internet-surfing, or just "hanging out." Horseback riding also puts children in touch with nature.
