Horse Riding – How are we doing?

Each week, we have a horse riding lesson at Hewshott Farm. The RDA instructors help us with our riding skills and tell us how to look after the horses. Our riding lessons really help with our balance and co-ordination. It is really good for improving our core strength too. This is important for being able to sit at a table in a classroom  and  to concentrate on our work. As well as helping us to do all of these things, it’s good fun!

Click on the link below to see a video clip of us in action. Can you see how straight we can sit? We are trying to remember to keep our heels down and have ‘long’ legs. We are also trying to feel the pattern in the movement of the horses to help us with ‘rising trot.
