Do you think it can be dangerous?

You have to control your horse and don't let the horse control you1

- is not like any other sport, it involves an animal, so it takes more responsibility, as the horse needs exercise
- you need to build a friendship with the horse, otherwise, riding will be a pain for you AND the horse
- yup, it is dangerous, you can break bones and have major accidents, but if the passion is big enough that shouldn't stop you from doing it :) but dont worry, this is not something that happens all the time lol
what kind of riding are you gonna do? I've never done the popular one, competing and all that stuff, but I'd suggest you to listen the instructor all the time.
Every horse has its own personality, so it will take a while to get to know the animal, the more you learn about it, the more you'll enjoy it :) Also, you will find days that the horse feels different, they are just like us, they have their days lol
Pay attention to the body language, looking at the ears helps a lot, you can read more about it :) but I think paying attention to that is useful. I do it because that way I know when my horse is relaxed or not and I know how to react.
Riding horses is A M A Z I N G, nothing will ever compare with the connection you build with the animal, there is a point in which you trust each other and you realise that you can spend hours and hours riding. I love doing it <3 if you ever get the chance to do it outdoors, do it! cuz that is by far the best way!1
