The only time I would think that riding even has the slightest chance of bowing your legs is if you spend every single waking moment on a horse during the years when your leg bones are solidifying and doing most of their growing.

Of course, I have no experience to back that up, just a slight hunch based on how bones grow.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Research it online. Find out every reason you can why people say horseback riding and ballet aren't compatable. Make a list of every reason you find. Then find reasons they are compatable. Email some top notch ballet dancers and instructors. I bet you will be able to find someone that does both, and you can speak to them about the good and bad

I rode almost every day of my "growing" years and it didn't affect my legs. I did gymnastics at the same time. I looked like a hobbit before I started riding and I look like an old hobbit now. Now go practice your ballet and then go ride your horse!

So jealous! I wish I could learn how to belly dance.. I've done everything else but that seems like so much fun, no one around here teaches it though.
