Does Your Daughter Need a Horse? She Sure Does! Part 2

She will meet boarders of all ages and levels of experience.

Having a horse boarded at Peachwood Horse Boarding offers a daily interaction for your ladies with people of all ages. We have men and women of all age groups and vocations. The boarders also have different breeds of horses to learn about and they have different skill sets. Being able to speak with a barrel racer, or a carriage driver can spark different interests in the different disciplines.

This can be an excellent opportunity for your daughter to make friends and there will always be something to share with others.

A horse will teach her humility.

It doesn’t take rocket science to own a horse, but there is a learning curve. She will soon find out what she does and doesn’t know about her horse. Her horse will be a great teacher. She will learn that she will not always get her lessons correct, but she has a wonderful animal that will work with her until she does get it right.

She will be taught by others what she is doing correctly or incorrectly and what to do to improve on the incorrect parts. The best thing she can do is listen. Horse owners have been there and done that. It would be wise of her to learn from their mistakes instead of experiencing them on her own.

A horse will keep her active.

She is going to be lifting, pushing, pulling, grooming, sweating, bending, stooping and eating dirt when she gets a horse. Many cowgirls have fantastic figures and they work hard for them.

 

She will develop her learning skills.

We all don’t learn the same way. Some just need to read a book, while some need to be told exactly what to do. Then there are those of us who need the hands on approach. Horse ownership is definitely hands on. She will improve that learning skill with positive activities and translate that to her school work and all other things she will learn in the future.

10 Health Benefits of Owning a Horse

I was looking for a list of benefits of horse ownership and I came across this article by Samir Becic, 4 times Number 1 Fitness Trainer in the world.

Top 10 Health Benefits of Owning a Horse:

  • Keeps you physically active: Riding and other activities that require you to be outdoors in all kinds of weather will certainly keep you moving. Cleaning stalls, grooming, feeding, raking hay, pushing wheelbarrows – all of these barn chores actively burn calories and build muscle.
  • It builds self confidence: While horse riding is an independent sport, it’s actually a partnership in which the owner is a teacher and leader who works with the horse. Nothing builds self confidence better than “leadership training.” When you tell a 1,000-pound animal to move in a certain direction, and then to follow you, it’s a feeling of accomplishment that you successfully taught it to do that. And when the horse does not comply, you are responsible for administering the proper discipline. That’s a form of empowerment that’s only found working with large animals.
  • Reduces stress: Recent studies have shown that even limited interaction with animals may provide a decrease in blood pressure and in the hormones associated with stress reactions. Physical exercise is a scientifically recognized mediator of stress and it is clear that equine activities may provide exercise, again highlighting the potential for equine activities to reduce stress.horse-brushing
  • Keeps you socially active: Taking riding lessons helps you meet many friends with similar interests. Most horse people will attest to meeting their best, life-long friends at the barn. These peers will have the same passion and devotion to horses. That connection creates a stronger bond just in itself.
  • Helps disabled individuals stay active: When supervised by certified instructors, riders with disabilities may have the chance to safely perform physical activities with the horse as a tool. Early research is showing that riding a horse may provide physical benefits for people with disabilities. At the same time, interacting with horses may provide mental benefits, as well.
  • Engages the creative side of your brain: Training a horse brings up daily challenges that will force you to think creatively about how to train it and how to solve a particular problem. If something worked in the last lesson, but it’s not working now, how else can you solve this issue? Being faced with such situations helps you engage your creativity to solve problems and find what works best.
  • Builds character: Character building is a natural part of horse ownership, teaching responsibility, punctuality, sportsmanship, frugality, patience, commitment, confidence and self-esteem.

  • It promotes a union with nature: Being outside and enjoying the fresh air can do wonders for your mental and physical health. Plus, the dose of vitamin D you get from being in the sunshine is essential for your body.
  • Maintains bone mass: All of the weight-bearing exercise that you do, including hauling barn equipment and carrying saddles, helps maintain bone mass, which important as you age.
  • Improves digestion: Riding a horse at a walking pace stimulates the internal organs just as walking on foot does. This aids in liver function and digestion.
