    Maybe because she doesn't want you to come to the dark side and stop dancing???

    PS: I can't ride horses because it bows your legs and that's kind of a problem when your a dancer
    Riding doesn't bow your legs. You will be able to dance just fine.

    I used to do ballet, tap and jazz. Now I do strictly bellydance, but my legs are definitely not bowed! :)

    As soon as you realize how amazing horse riding is, you won't have time for ballet.. she has probably lost a lot of clients that way :P

    old urban legend maybe? Probably just that she doesn't know much about horses or riding. In reality it strengthens your core, legs, arms everything really and improves your balance, posture and flexibilty. By his logic doing ballet makes your feet go pointed permantally.

    Well... If the horse steps on your tow I bet there will be no ballet for while. Also very intense riding often causes back issues (from what I know, some trainers complain about it), however it doesn't sound like your case anyway.

    I had always heard that riding intensely and studying dance will conflict bc you contract your inner thigh and leg muscles when you ride, which conflicts with keeping them stretched and flexible for dance.
    I agree with the previous posts--do both and consider equitation to be your cross-training, like the Olympic athletes do off-season.

    YES!! Stretch before you ride, right after you ride, and hyperflex, like you crazy dancers do, in the evening when you're watching tv, or reading, and the riding shouldn't affect your dance.
