Hobby Horsing itself probably doesn't need much introduction. But what we want to say today is why it's worth trying. And we have 6 reasons for you.
1. Physical Exercise
Horse racing requires fast running and endurance, while show jumping demands explosiveness and a powerful take-off. Everyone finds out what suits them best. But as they say, no pain, no gain, and no training, no results.
2. New Friends and a Great Community
Participating in any sports community is a great way to promote a healthy lifestyle. Hobby horsing riders support each other a lot, even at tournaments and competitions. Hobby horsing is a fun and safe sport where everyone can find new friends.
3. Fostering Creativity and Imagination
In addition to running, jumping, and racing, "riding on the hobby horse" also requires a dose of imagination. This includes imagining the temperament and riding characteristics of the horse. We believe that you can learn these things better by trying them out yourself rather than watching a screen on a computer.
4. It Doesn't Cost Any Extra Money
No stable rent, vet bills, feed, or new horseshoes. You buy your hobby horse once, and it doesn't cost you any more money. And if our JUHI ever needs veterinary treatment in the form of repairs, we'll do it for free. After all, all our products come with a lifetime warranty.
5. You Learn New Things About Horses
Unfortunately, it's not always possible to have your own horse or pony. A hobby horse, however, is for everyone. It can be a practical alternative for learning about what horses eat, how to care for them, what breeds there are, and what their main character traits are.
6. Hobby Horsing Is Safer Than Traditional Riding
Yes, we admit that every sport has its risks. Hobby horsing is no exception. But compared to traditional riding, where you sit on a several-hundred-kilogram horse that has a mind of its own, hobby horsing involves "only" scraped knees.
Hobby horsing is a great activity that develops social, physical, and emotional skills and is definitely worth trying. Need help to choose? Don't hesitate to contact us.
