Horseback Riding Terminology
If you are new to horseback riding or are interested in polishing your skills, then you may want to investigate the services of your local stables. Stables often offer riding instructions to both novice and skilled riders and frequently offer courses in numerous competitive riding styles. If you are interested in learning the skill of horseback riding, then there are a few terms that will help to acquaint you with the discipline:

Bareback Riding: The art of horseback riding without a saddle. There is a rodeo event called Bareback Bronc, in which riders compete while riding a bucking horse bareback while holding onto a leather rig with only one hand.

Dressage: An equestrian sport wherein a horse performs a sequence of complex movements with little apparent guidance from the rider. The required components involve the horse's ability to pirouette, walk in a diagonal line, trot in place and trot as if under water.

Rodeo: A series of competitive events that combine horseback and bull riding with disciplines such as calf roping and steer wrestling. Rodeo events are based upon the duties of cattle ranchers.

Equestrianism: A broad term for the skill of horseback riding for both practical purposes and sport. The various skills included are jumping and driving as well as basic riding.

Polo: A team sport performed on horseback. The objective is to drive a ball into the opposing team's goal using a long handled mallet.

English Riding: A style of competitive riding. At its most basic level, the riders sit in a flat saddle and keep both hands on the reins. Riders are also required to dress in boots, jodhpurs, a tie, jacket and a cap or equestrian helmet.

Western Riding: A style of competitive riding that was born from cattle ranching traditions. Riders use western saddles and are skilled in reining and line changes.

Bit: A metal or occasionally rubber bar placed into the mouth of a horse. The bit is then attached to a bridle and used with the reins to direct and guide the horse.

"Nice facility, the horses were great. The instructor was supposed to be experienced with developmentally delayed children, but clearly did not interact with them well. She was critical, impatient, showing little support for their achievements, yet highlighting their failures. I would NOT recommend this facility. My daughter had far less confidence when we left and since she's been with a new, posi ..."

Ranches and horseback riding camps often offer a range of services, including lessons and boarding. Having a few questions in mind when you contact a ranch or camp should help you decide which one has the features that match your needs.

  • Does your camp teach courses in Western or English riding styles?
    These are the two most popular types of riding styles. Each one uses its own type of saddle. Western saddles have a horn at the front while English saddles do not. If you are interested in lessons in a specific type of riding, then find a camp that offers those that you prefer.

  • Do you have courses or trails at your camp?
    If you are interested in jumping obstacles, then you will want a horseback riding camp that offers a course. If, however, you’d prefer to explore the surrounding forests, mountains, and desert landscapes, then look for a farm that has equestrian trails for beginner, intermediate, and expert riders.

  • Do you rent stable space?
    Many ranches have more space in their barns than they need, so they rent out their extra stalls. Some ranches will include boarding services, such as brushing, exercising, and feeding. Others, however, only rent the stable space. It is up to the owners to care for their horses. The owners can then feed, water, and groom their horses when they come to ride. This option, although usually cheaper, requires that owners learn how to properly care for their horses and ride them on a daily basis.
