Your child deserves the opportunity to experience one of the most popular birthday experiences that is currently sweeping the market.
Pony parties, as they are colloquially referred to, are fast becoming one of the most popular ways for parents to give their children a birthday to remember. Everybody knows that children love ponies, and the horse has always been a figure of joy and wonder to little ones, who love the countryside and spending time outside with animals.
Pony parties are also a great opportunity for children to learn about the equestrian way of life – grooming, feeding, boarding and training. Instead of staring at a screen, or being locked in with a computer, kids can be in contact with nature and the fresh air – not to mention all the benefits that come with horse-riding.
Your child can become a better and healthier person through horse-riding – it’s a scientifically proven fact
Did you know that learning to ride a horse can improve a child’s self-confidence, along with developing their cognitive skills and improving balance and co-ordination? Learning how to take care of an animal leads to a bond developing between horse and child, which also teaches a young boy or girl the importance of responsibility and care towards another living being. Although ponies are much smaller than a regular sized horse, they are still considerably larger, and face more of a challenge than a cat or a dog. Accordingly, learning how to take care of a pony properly is empowering to children and young people.
Studies have also shown that the effects of horseback riding lead to developing a strong core and legs. Along with this, vibrations that emanate from riding a horse resonate within the sympathetic nervous system. This leads to a better understanding of problem-solving skills and mathematics amongst young children, thus leading to a betterment of their mental capabilities.
Studies of horseback riding have also led to what is now known as Equine Assisted Therapy (EAT) – a field which has proven the therapeutic benefits of activities with horses, and the various ways they have a positive effect on human health, both physically and mentally.
