With horseback riding being viewed as mostly a recreational activity, many do not realize the rider is an athlete not just a participant. Horseback riding is listed 64th on the National Electronic Injury Surveillance Systems of the United States Consumer Products among the activities of people relative to injuries that result in stay at U.S. hospitals. Horses are 5 to 15 times larger, 20-40 times more powerful, and 3-4 times faster than a human. When a rider falls from their horse to the ground it will generally be at a distance from 3 1/2 to 5 1/2 feet, and that impact many times results in injury to the rider. It has been scientifically proven that keeping the body fit both physically and mentally results in better muscle tone and strength as well as stronger bone structure. Building one's core strength will give you better balance and stability in the saddle as well when your horse may spook or make spontaneous movements.
