I totally agree with you it helps relax me and i think it helps relax my horse too. We crank it up in the indoor arena and everyone agree we will play country so thats what its always on. I could see not listening to it if you were doing something very serious where you needed to be completly focused but otherwise i think its fun and it helps me.

Three of the horses i ride are all under five years old, so i have to be focused on them and not music, looking for potential spooks and distractions.

But, i often listen to my ipod when working with Spice. I love metal, mostly symphonic metal, and nothing goes with jumping and flying changes quite like Disturbed and Avantasia.

I only listen to my ipod if i'm at home working on my horse. it calms me down and i can have a more successful ride that way.

I usually listen to a range of this in my "Horseriding" play list (its actually called that)
it ranges from rock to indie to instrumental to alternative rock to metal to screamo occassionally and the beats change a wide range to :)
i usually end up working to the beats when im bringing my horse into work to increase her fitness so with the beats we change from walk trot and canter accordingly :)

i wouldn't say you shouldnt but dont always listen to music because it can be dangerous in a busy place

I'm all for upbeat music, but when i'm riding I love to be inspired, so this is what I downloaded and chucked on my ipod.
