Let’s ride through COVID-19 lockdowns

By Amelia, age nine

Do you want to be fit in COVID? I have a solution for you. Horse riding is the perfect way to keep fit and healthy during COVID. But in order for that, horse riding needs to stay open during COVID lockdowns. Here are the reasons why: it keeps you fit, horses make you happy, and you ride in a big area.

Do you want a breath of fresh air? In lockdown our house has no fresh air. Horse riding is outside in fresh air. Horse riding is safe because it is outside in a huge area and you are far away from people.

Do you want to have good mental health? I have a solution for you. In lockdown you cannot be with your friends so you will be sad but horses make you happy and increase your mental health. Horses make you happier because they are loving and they trust you.

Do you want to be fit in lockdown? Lockdown keeps you indoors, which means you cannot exercise. Horse riding is the perfect way to keep fit and healthy because it is hard work caring for and riding a horse. Those are my three reasons why horse riding should be allowed.

To conclude, these are the three reasons horse riding should be allowed during lockdown: it takes place in a huge outdoor area, it is good for your mental health, and it keeps you fit.

  2. Horse riding is an excellent suggestion for exercise during Covid. Like the reasons provided by Amelia too.
