50 Ways to Stay Well #27- Horseback Riding

If you’re looking for a non-traditional way to strengthen your core, horseback riding may be just the exercise you need. Horseback riding really works the core muscles that stabilize the trunk: the abdominal, back, and pelvic muscles. It’s not just about the strength of the core, but the coordination and stability of it as well.

Benefits of horseback riding include;

  • Core Strength
  • Balance and Coordination
  • Muscle Tone and Flexibility
  • Cardiovascular Exercise
  • Mental exercise
