Ever wondered why people involved in equestrian activities exude a special charm or why do they have captivating personalities? This is because equestrian activities, especially horse riding instill many positive personality traits in them. When they continue their routine horse riding, the positive traits keep on developing. These attributes reach to such an elevated level in individuals that they become distinct from the crowd in their mannerisms and overall personality.
What are the positive personality lineaments that people in the saddle develop that make them stand out? We will let you know!
Entrusting and handling a huge and powerful animal like a horse needs courage and riders develop it in the very early stage of horse riding. Horses have a mind of their own and when riders finally control them, natural confidence advances in them. This confidence also brings along the courage to do daring adventures, whether it is related to equestrian activities or in general life. People with courage and confidence do not shy away from taking risks which can be life-changing. They say ”only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go” and this cannot be a possibility with a lack of confidence and courage!
Horses are smart animals and they do not let anyone easily overpower them. To take control of these majestic animals, the rider learns to outsmart them by applying different methods to take charge. In this process, they put their creativity to work which eventually gets developed. This improves their out-of-the-box thinking skills and urges them to think of new and innovative ideas to achieve their goals.
Horse riding brings along a lot of challenges like controlling the animal, finding the best riding type for them, honing the process, etc. All of this propels a rider to improve more and more and a great attribute of self-improvement starts evolving in their personality with their continued efforts. With this trait, a rider develops an attitude where the satisfaction for him/her lies in mastering the skills that he/she wants. Mastering any skill can only come if there is a burning desire for self-improvement and horse riding bestows this skill into humans!
Who does not like to win but sportsmanship is more important than winning! Riders compete with each other and sometimes, the competition is cut-throat as riding masters compete with one another. Someone has to take the winning crown even if the others are equally talented in this sport and this should not belittle other riders. The quality of appreciating fellow riders and being happy in other’s happiness in such situations is called sportsmanship and horse riding teaches this in an ultimate manner. This also opens scopes of new learning from the winning rider. Such a positive attitude takes a person far ahead in life!
Patience and Persistence
A rider needs a lot of patience to develop and bond with a horse. This patience also gives birth to persistence as the art of horse riding can only be learned by trying again and again without losing patience. Even after controlling the horse, things do go wrong and persistent efforts can only make the wrong right. These two qualities are important for every challenging situation of life and once developed, they become a permanent trait of the personality.
