Horse rid­ing

Woman (UK) - - Stay Fit And Well -

what is it? You know what it is… but you might not have con­sid­ered sad­dling up since you were 12. it’s time to rekin­dle that child­hood dream, as horse rid­ing is bang on trend, with Vogue tout­ing it as ‘The model Workout of the mo­ment’. Fans in­clude sis­ters gigi and Bella Ha­did. how does it work? Try it out with a day’s trek or, if you get into it, sign up for lessons. what are the ben­e­fits? in a study by the univer­sity of Brighton, horse rid­ing and its as­so­ci­ated ac­tiv­i­ties – think groom­ing, sad­dling, even muck­ing out – were shown to ex­pend suf­fi­cient en­ergy to count as mod­er­ate in­ten­sity ac­tiv­ity. and trot­ting ex­pends even more. So you can burn calo­ries, boost fit­ness and work your thighs and core.
