Horse Riding Tips

The horse is running and turning suddenly, and the rider is suddenly pulled off without any pre-alert.

Preventive measure:

Give the horses clear instructions ahead of time at the crossing.

Change horses. Check with the trainer beforehand to know the condition and temperament of the horse.

If there are too many holes, stones or slippery area on the ground, the horse may slip or fall.

Solution: Ride the horse in a familiar area, or walk the unfamiliar route first before riding. If there are too many hidden risks, it's not suitable for running.

If the belly belt is broken, the rope of the footstool will be broken, which will cause the rider to fall.

Horses sometimes hurt people voluntarily, such as kicking or biting people.
