29 Horseback Riding Horseback Riding Horseback riding (or Equestrian) is one of the most intense sports known to man. Not only because it's physically challenging, but it takes more than athleticism. Horseback riding takes commitment, time, patience, and most importantly building a bond with your horse. If you don't have a good relationship ...read more.

Horse back riding gets breaks but you don't dismount when your on a break. And when your on break your actually just waiting for other people. You always have to be in alert. I know someone at my barn who was just waiting normally and her horse spooked and she broke her arm. You always have to know you are on a living breathing soul.

To ride, you must NEVER lose control of your mount. This includes using leg muscles for whatever time you are on. If you let go, the horse doesn't know what to do, and, if you are riding a green (inexperienced) horse, they could throw you off. You must keep directing this horse with your leg muscles the whole time you are on. You cannot stop.
