OCBS adds horse riding to its ECA’s offer

At O Castro British School we consider that extracurricular activities are an essential complement to curricular education and that they should be a playful and enjoyable component that encourages students to explore other areas of life different from academics. And this is an example of one of the novelties of the ECA’s offer for this academic year: horse riding. With it, you will discover a new sport and learn to ride a horse or pony in the fantastic facilities of El Alazán Equestrian Club, also in the Alto de San Cosme.

Likewise, and perhaps it is the most attractive facet of this activity, they will learn to take care of the horses and to know what their needs and care are. Child riding is much more than just a sport or hobby, and it has many benefits for the physical and psychological health of children.

Stimulates physical ability; improves concentration and attention, since it is an exercise that requires skill, dedication, time, perseverance and, above all, a great concentration; develops self-confidence, self-control and self-esteem; promotes socialization and promotes positive values such as love and respect for nature, more specifically, for animals.
