Autumn Riding Equesterian Sports
❤What to do on “World Animal Day”?
Let us express our gratitude to the animals who give love to humans!

The equestrian sports will be hold by NYCU PEO. It not only enhances balance and overall strength (riding and controlling horses require the use of core muscles, legs, shoulders, and lower back muscles) but also provides an opportunity to connect with animals and nature.

Through this process, one can learn how to communicate with animals, explore the ecological interdependence and conservation between humans and animals, and gain a deeper appreciation for the importance of biodiversity, environmental conservation, and the respect for all forms of life, as outlined in SDG15. It provides an avenue for experiencing sustainable ecology.
Furthermore, equestrian sport is also used for medical rehabilitation purposes in Taiwan, known as ‘ Equine-assisted therapy ‘ or ‘ Physical Therapy for Horses.’

When you feel stressed ,the rhythmic back muscle movements and steps of horses during therapy rides can effectively improve physical and psychological well-being, promoting emotional stability.

If you want to experience different types of sports, the diversity of natural ecology, and get relaxed, welcome to enjoy us.
Go outdoors to be refreshed by the cool breeze of autumn.
