Riding lessons in and around Berlin that make children happy
The happiness of this earth lies on the back of the horses: Your child only talks about horses? Can you no longer hear the stories of Bibi and Tina? Every pony needs to be petted? Then your child is probably crazy about horses. At first glance, this seems to cloud the mind – but it actually does the opposite. horse riding makes you confident, focused and trains empathy. And yes, it is true: once you are aflame for horses and ponies, you stay forever a Pferdefreundin.
If you give your child that horse riding enables you to open a world to him that will benefit him for a lifetime. The horse can be a friend and a comforter. It makes you strong and brave, because it lets your child outgrow itself. In a technological world, this supposedly expensive hobby (which it does not have to be) offers a connection to nature. Dealing with the horse requires and encourages a sense of responsibility and independence, observation skills and a good body feeling.
These skills promote riding:
At what age can children learn to ride?
When can we start? You determine the time when your child starts equestrian sport individually. For a rough orientation: It usually starts with the Vaulting lessons. It is a kind of gymnastics lesson on the horse, the children from about four years can do. That sounds very acrobatic now. But first of all it is an exercise for balance – and thus a preparation for the actual riding. Just like that Work on the lunge. The learning of the associated skills runs through the Elementary School.
The best motor learning age for riding is just beginning between 10 to 13 years. But it is always helpful if you visit ponies and horses with small children (i.e. as early as possible). For example, help with feeding and cleaning at the Berlin children’s farms. In this way you help your child to trust ponies and horses at an early age.
What kind of riding equipment do you need??
It is always an advantage to be well equipped. Not just as a knight. &# 128521; When it comes to equipment, you have to invest less than expected at the beginning.
- A snug fit jodhpurs (which of course can also be used) is a good basis.
- For this you need Boots, that have to have a small heel so that the feet stay in the stirrup.
- a helmet, You can usually rent a bike helmet at the riding stables. Good ventilation is an advantage here.
- gloves are not a must. But they help you to have the reins firmly in your hand right from the start.
- safety Vests only become relevant when your child wants to jump over obstacles. Before that, vests are usually a hindrance to the movements.
In this sense: All horses saddled for the first gallop ride? Get ready. horse riding quickly becomes a love for life.
When is the riding lesson good for children and what is important to know?
What is important? Above all, of course, that your child wants to ride and is physically fit. If this is the case, it depends on the riding instructors and the horses. Good riding instructors and suitable teaching horses or ponies are the decisive criteria for happy and successful riding lessons. No matter whether it is about riding, vaulting or carriage driving.
