Riding Lessons For Adults

Equine Kingdom offers riding lessons for adults as well as children. Adults will learn the more technical side of riding - the "why", versus the children being taught the how. Since adults are more naturally intellectual than children, they tend to want to know why something is done a certain way instead of just doing it. Riding instructors must be sure that they know exactly why things are done if they are going to endeavor to teach adults.

Also with teaching lessons to adults, one must take into account the deterioration of the human body. Older people that want to ride are more at risk, and it's better to take things slowly than to risk injury. Many adults are often rather heavy as well. Make sure that you put a weight limit on your riders...generally, 250 pounds is the heaviest rider you'll want to put on a horse, and otherwise risk harm to the horse and rider.
