Parents often choose to Homeschool because they have a child with a physical or learning challenge. The American Equestrian Alliance states that horseback
riding can be helpful for children dealing with physical challenges and can help improve balance, muscle strength, and flexibility.
One of the main daily concerns Homeschoolers are facing is the question
of proper socialization. Horseback riding provides them with the opportunity to interact with other Homeschoolers or Non-Homeschoolers. Horseback riding can also help a Homeschooler
to gain confidence and a sense of responsibility through learning horse care and upkeep, while enjoying the sense of freedom riding a horse will bring.
