Hello!

My best friend is going to a horse summer camp this summer. And I really want to go with her. Then I started to wonder, is it bad for youre dancing to ride on horses? :D

I don't know if this is true, but I heard horse riding can be very bad for ballet. From what I understand, it turns your feet in, or makes a habit of it.

As a general rule, it's not great for a career-oriented dancer, but there are far worse things that you could do.

I don't really know much about this topic but I would assume that by horse riding you would use muscles in a different way which might have an effect if done regularly. I don't really want to say much else on it because I don't know anything about it. :wacko: And by the way, your english is very good!

I use to ride horses (now I am scared to death!) so I might be able to help. Yes It does turn your feet in witch is one of the bad points of it. But it is a lot like dance. You have a rythem with the horse just like your feet with the music, you have to learn how to feel. What style are you doing?? I use to ride english. If you have any questions I might be able to help.

I'm not going to start ride weekley, so I guess it wont hurt for just a week or two :D .. It is at a iceland horse senter (the little horses are so cute :D ). I don't know what style it is.

I have heard about some people that startet to do ballet to improve their riding :blink: do you know if this work? Just wonder :thumbsup:
