Horseback Riding Core Benefits

Horseback Riding Core Benefits
We hope you learned some interesting information about CrossFit in the first episode of our Season 2, Skee TV, Rockstar Health & Fitness.  I've been enjoying Greg's breakfast recipe and look forward to trying, Fortified Nutrition Perfect Blocks.  
Next week, in our episode with Icelandic superstars, The Charlies, you will learn some great core exercises and fun popcorn recipe.

This past weekend, during my adventure to Ojai, I discovered another great workout for your core. To celebrate a friend's birthday weekend getaway, KIIS-FM APD/MD Julie Pilat, put together a, Pay It Forward, scavenger hunt. We divided into teams and traveled around Ojai doing fun things which included a few good deeds. At one point, I found myself horseback riding which proved to be a great core workout in itself! The list of benefits is incredibly long.
They include:
  • Improves cardio function
  • Improves respiration and circulation
  • Strengths muscles, esp., core, postural & pelvic, hamstrings, inner thigh and quadriceps
  • Lowers stress
  • Provides opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and fresh air 
  • Facilitates learning about a magnificent animal
  • Develops trust
Get outside, witness nature, enjoy a beautiful animal, and get some exercise!!  These hints add up to a great combination of ways to provide better health for your body and peace to the soul.  Horseback riding has been a favorite Hollywood past time throughout history.  Equestrian celebrities include: Leona Lewis, Penelope Cruz, Madonna, Demi Lovato, Kristen Stewart, Angelina Jolie and trainer, Jillian Michaels.  Here in LA we have access to a great place up Beachwood Canyon where you can ride all around the Hollywood hills.
