exploring a more unique pastime
Do ever feel the need for the county air or the wind in your hair? Well today we get an inside look at Cara Stables. The stables are located Just 11 minutes south of Calgary in DeWinton, Alberta. Any day of the week anytime of the year, you can get a lesson for any level of riders in a comfortable indoor heated arena. Here you will learn the necessities of caring for your equine friends as well as creating a healthy bond and finding a peace of mind. Your lesson will be taught by an EC certified coach and horse show judge. You can choose to ride western pleasure, English or you can take a more competitive route. Cara Stables has a very natural environment with cats and dogs, giving off a friendly welcoming vibe.
One of the definite benefits of this great sport is the bonds and friendships created on the way. We take a look at Hawkeye, just one of the many well mannered school horses.“Sometimes in horse back riding it’s not you training the horse but the horse training you”, says Donna, owner of Cara Stables. Half of the lesson is horsemanship and care and the other half is riding. “Owning a stable is a huge responsibility so there are no sick days or days off unless you have a reliable and trusted person”. Say Donna.
Though this sport is a great way to engage with your environment and try something new, you must do so with caution. Mary Kate, a new rider on Hawkeye was making great progress and her level of confidence was high. she was loving her lessons and was just starting to jump. Horse riding requires a great amount of focus and you must always be ready. Unfortunately Mary Kate had not learned this. Horses can spook at anytime and Mary Kate had her fist fall. But no matter how hard your horse throws you off you have got to get back on.
So whether you want a hobby or just wanting to try something new maybe horse riding is the thing for you. For more information on Cara Stables visit https://www.equinenow.com/farm/cara_stables_-_heated_arena_-_board__lessons.htm.hi
