More than just hippotherapy

6More than just hippotherapy

There was a deep meaning in the desire of our ancestors to teach children how to ride. It can not be compared with going to the fitness center today. Psychologists, doctors, athletes and veterinarians in unison talk about the benefits of equestrian sports. And not only in terms of improving the health of the child, but – for the development of personality.

Just a hundred years ago, horseback riding training was part of the mandatory program of all decent educational institutions, and supporters of home training invited a coach to estates and mansions. Wisdom cannot be denied to our ancestors: there was a deep meaning in their desire to teach their children how to ride a horse. And not only that the horse was an affordable means of transportation, but that learning the tricks of dressage was akin to exercising in a fitness center and going to a psychotherapist.

A right equipment

It’s never too late to start horse riding, but it’s important to remember that whether you’re a hobbyist or a professional rider, you only need the best equipment. What is included in this equipment? This is a saddle, helmet, special boots and safety stirrups.

An important element – safety stirrups

In safety stirrups you will find two magnets (one in the insole of the shoe and one in the stirrup itself) for better grip. You don’t have to go to the store for all this, because there is online shopping on trusted sites, where you can also get a good discount. What do you need to order? Just decide on the stirrup model, choose the desired size and color. You don’t need to worry about quality, you will be provided with a 60-day warranty. At this time, you will be able to test these stirrups in action and make sure that this is one of your best purchases.
