Riding Horses

Horseback riding at the race track.
Horseback Riding

Summer is a great season for riding sports. You can ride bikes, skateboards, scooters, trykes and even elephants. One kid tells Kidzworld about her favorite sport - horseback riding.

I would like to tell everybody how much I love to horseback ride.This is how I got started. I went to the riding ring to watch my big sister ride. I really wished that I could be on a pony too! I finally had the guts to ask my mom for a horse. She said she would think about it. Then my birthday came. My mom came into my room and gave me a whole bunch of weird looking brushs. I didn't know what to do with them so I asked, "What are these used for?"

My mom said, "They're for brushing a horse. You want to horseback ride don't you?" I ran up to her and gave her a big hug.

The next day we went up to a barn where two horses were grazing. One of the ponies was a real cutie. The girl that owned the pony said she was going to give me a riding lesson and then my dream came true.

    Do you have an old tire you could start off practicing with? It helps you align your hands. I find it kind of hard to explain, but there are lots of great resources out there online if you search for them. :) To do a cartwheel stand in a lunge with your favourite leg (by that I don't mean you look at it and say "that's a nice leg" but that you favor that leg when doing things, you feel comfortable with it going first), knees bent slightly, and your arms straight up by your ears. Make sure your elbows are locked. You don't want to drop. Assuming you start with your right, reach forward with your right arm while kicking your left leg up at the same time. Your left hand should follow very quickly and as it touches the ground your right leg should also be off of the ground. You should pass through the handstand briefly and your left leg should reach the ground first with your right following it and you will finish in a lunge just as you started. Hand, hand, foot, foot. 1,2,3,4. There's a rhythm to it. Keep practicing and try to perfect not kicking around as you go.

    Well I'm in 6th grade this year and next year in seventh grade I'm going to try out for cheerleading... The problem is I cant do a cartwheel or any of that! So I have to cram all of this stuff into just one year, all help is appreciated.
