is horse riding easy ?

well, this can be debatable.

when you first ride a horse, it can be tricky for some. you have to learn the cues to make the horse move forward (using your legs/calves & squeezing them on your horse's sides), the cue to make your horse stop (pulling back on the reins, softly!) and controlling & steering your horse (pulling right rein to go right, left to go left, etc). you must do these cues while the horse is moving, and moving at faster gaits. later on in riding, you must worry about technical things like your position and posture - your seat, your leg, heels down, eyes up, shoulders back while riding in sync with your horse. generally as a beginner you take things one step at a time and worry about the basic whoa and go. correct diagonals in trotting, leads in cantering and riding your horse in frame come with time as well. it's a lot to remember, but taking lessons with a certified coach and lots of practice will drill these things into your head. it is almost like getting on a bike after a while. everyone is different - some may catch on quickly, others won't. remembering these aspects of riding all together takes a lot of time, practice and education.

riding a horse entails hand-eye coordination and most of the time, thinking and reacting quickly. some people are not cut out to ride at first, depending on their fitness level and/or level of confidence. also, the horse you ride can make your ride easy or very hard if it is not a suitable mount. it's good to start out on a schoolmaster horse on the lunge line at first.
