Family riding Vacations offer the kind of active, challenging adventure which children and adults can share and will remember with pleasure. Passive and bland vacations like sunning on the beach or the vicarious amusements of Disneyland do not provide the same kind of challenging experience. To bond and unite, families need to leave the world of television and computer games behind to embrace an exciting real-life activity demanding skill and full attention.
Like so many other sports, riding is something children can learn rapidly and well, but success requires practice, dedication and physical fitness. The rewards are proportionate to the effort invested. Young children would be best advised to visit a place like the Bitterroot Ranch to perfect their horseback riding skills. At the Bitterroot, children can also become acquainted with horses and play with young foals which will improve their confidence in riding and help build an affinity with their equine partners. One of the great joys of riding is the harmonious interaction with the horse on a physical and spiritual level. After the age of 8 or 9 many other riding tour opportunities open up and children with enough riding experience can often ride better than most adults enabling them to take our most demanding rides by the time they reach their early teens.
