”In riding a horse, we borrow freedom.” Helen Thompson
I love almost all kinds of animals, but horses have a special place in my heart! They are noble, beautiful and loyal to their owners.
There are many horse/pony riding clubs in Stockholm where you can practice horseback riding. One of them is Akalla 4H Farm located in Akalla By, 16478, Kista. It’s a nice place with kids in mind: the farm offers different animal-related courses like mini 4h, rabbit classes, zookeeper courses and horse riding. Children from 4 years old can take part in them. The farm also has pony riding every Sunday between 13:00-14:00. Moreover, there are other farm animals like sheep, goats, chicken, ducks, rabbit and cats in Akalla 4H. You can take your family to the farm any time between 8:30-16:00. If you are a member, then you have access to all activities in the farm, and thus get a chance to learn more about animals.
Since my daughter is not 3 yet, an effective way for her to learn about horses, nurture love for animals in general, was to take her pony riding:)) It was a blissful time for our angel and us, as parents!
If you are looking for a fun way to get your kids become more physically active, then try to involve them in horseback riding. You can try to start with pony riding which is a good laugh:))
