Can you stroke your horse during riding?
Yes you can. In fact, it can be calming and reassuring to the
horse to feel a riders touch and voice.
Realy all you would call riding a horse for fun is just horse riding because you are not having a lesson if you are riding a horse for fun other wise that would be called horse riding lesson. I have been horse riding for a while know and it is very fun and all i call it is horse riding. I hope this has answered your question!
It can. Gymnastics requires balance and strength, just like riding. However, like the answer beneath me, horse riding improves horse riding the best- but it's not necessarily the only thing to improve riding. No not really. Horse riding improves horse riding. That is pretty much it. It is so unique in itself that it is the only thing that will improve itself.
