Yay! Let’s go riding! Call it going for a joyride even, because there can be nothing more joyful. Riding a motorcycle just ask anyone who has done so can be a riveting but exhilarating experience. Speak to anyone who goes out regularly on his mountain bike and he will tell you how great it is to be out in the great outdoors. And perhaps it is true that those young children who are about to take their first pony ride are just about the most excited kids in the universe right now.
Because what indeed could be more exciting. Grown adults need to take proper care and caution, however. They just need to make sure that when they lay out their kids’ new riding clothes, they’ve taken good and proper care of their safety requirements. Showing up for the first horse riding lesson could be a case of being sent packing and probably you are going to see the watery disappointment in that young kid’s eyes.
The horse riding instructor will not be allowing anyone on to the horse’s back without a proper horse riding helmet. So parents, do make sure that you have that on your shopping list. Now, it goes without saying that similar security concerns will be raised when equipping yourself for any kind of bike ride whether it’s pedal power all the way or power biking with leather-gloved fingers carefully placed over the brake, gear and accelerator controls.
Good to know that in most cases, laws and regulations are in place. Just understand why a law enforcement officer will be pulling you over with a whistle or a hoot the moment he sees you without your helmet on your head. Enjoy the ride but be careful out there.
