I've been reading this board for a while and finally decided to sign up.
I'm new to horse riding, actually just made my first ride some six months ago, thanks to my sister. I'm thinking of joining this club and practice more but I'm worried about how horses are treated and does everyone give them the affection they need ? Last time I went with my sister I saw people jumping on horses back like they jumped on a motorbike I guess the question I'm trying to ask is can you have a real relation to horses, do they recognize you, and how do you know when a horse is tired and you gotta give him some rest ?
Thanks in advance
