Real horse riding" is all about outside and in the woods - no arenas or going round and round and round in circles. It would take you near 5 years to become this accomplished - really and truly.
You will learn how to ride at all speeds and gaits, go over all kinds of terrain, learn how to communicate and understand the needs of the horse, develop skills to deal with a horse if he acts up, and on and on and on. Get more information about adult horse camp

This is SUPERB HORSE RIDING
If you are the best "horseback rider" in the world and have "marvelous" form BUT you can't get your horse to do what you want him to do, then it just doesn't matter how beautifully you ride, does it? This is what many folk are so clueless about.
If you boil it right down to the nuts & bolts - riding a horse is simply keeping the horse between you & the ground. In other words, not crashing !!! That is it !
The Bottom Line
At the average lesson price of $65 an hour * 50 weeks a year amounts to $3250 a year and you are still a LONG way from Real Horse Riding and True Horsemanship.
Horsemanship is the KEY here - riding is simply keeping the horse between you and the ground in its' most basic element.
Horsemanship is learning what to do if you have fear, what to do in a rodeo, how to avoid a rodeo, how to listen to your horse when he is talking to you, and he does talk bunches, it's just that we don't listen and haven't a clue on how to listen.
