Start walking your horse every day.

I’m assuming you’re on a diet to lose weight and not just for fun, so let’s get down to business. Start walking your horse every day for about 30 minutes a day. Start slowly, increase the duration and pace over time, and make sure that you have someone to ride with in case something goes wrong (and it will).

You should be wearing a helmet at all times while riding or walking your horse. If you’re planning on doing this alone, then I recommend getting extra insurance coverage on your car so that if anything happens while walking or riding alone on an isolated road, they can pay off any damages caused by an accident as well as temporarily fix the damage themselves until they find someone who can do it right away (and yes – this has happened before).

Make sure to set up a goal for yourself and get a calendar so you can track it.

The first step to losing weight is setting up a goal. When you have a goal, you will be more motivated to do something about it.

You should get a calendar so that you can track your progress every day and see how much closer you are getting to reaching your goal.

Stay hydrated.

You should be drinking at least eight glasses of water every day. If you are exercising, you will need to drink even more. Carry a water bottle with you at all times so that you do not forget to drink.

Before each meal, have a glass of water so your body can easily digest the food and absorb the nutrients from it.

Drink more when you are thirsty and add lemon slices or sparkling water for some extra flavour!

Cut out all the processed foods.

When you’re trying to shed pounds, it’s important to avoid processed foods. Processed foods are usually cheap, but they can be detrimental to your health. The same goes for processed horse feed products. Too much sugar and fat in one’s diet can lead to weight gain and a host of other health issues. If you look at the ingredients list on any bag of grain or horse treat, you’ll notice that there are many ingredients listed—and most of them aren’t actual food! Instead, they’re chemicals designed specifically for horses’ diets (or humans’, in some cases) that help make the product last longer or improve its taste without adding any extra calories or nutrition.

Unfortunately, these chemicals can cause serious damage over time if eaten regularly by both humans and animals alike; therefore it is recommended that anyone who wants a healthy lifestyle cut out all processed foods from their diets immediately before beginning their riding journey!

Get rid of that couch potato mentality and get up on your feet.

You’re on the couch, it’s the weekend and you have nothing to do. You think to yourself “I really want to get up and move around a little bit…however, I don’t want to get up because then I might feel guilty for watching TV all day. But if only that was something else I could watch in my pajamas…*wistful sigh*”.

Okay, let me stop right there. You know what? You can quit with the self-talk right now! Seriously! It’s time to put an end once and for all to this negative way of thinking about exercise. This is a new week; let’s start over!

Instead of wishing away your weekend by laying around like a slug on Friday night with your favorite sitcom playing in front of you, let’s dig deep into those old muscles (and maybe even some new ones) instead! Get out of bed (or off the couch), turn off the TV and go outside for some fresh air and sunshine! If it’s too cold out there then find some indoor activity such as going for a walk inside or doing laps around your living room/garage/etcetera…just get moving!!

Do not skip any meals because it will slow down your metabolism.

You can’t expect to shed weight and get fit without eating. You will feel hungry, tired and weak. Your body needs fuel to function and your metabolism will slow down if you don’t eat regularly.

The number of calories a person needs depends on their size, activity level, age and genetics. A general guideline is that people should consume between 1800-2500 calories per day to maintain their current weight while exercising 1-2 hours a day at an intense rate (not including any other training). If you want to lose weight then lower your calorie intake below this range until you start noticing progress then gradually increase it back up once more so that you do not end up gaining all the weight back again once done with the program

If possible try avoiding processed foods as they contain lots of salt/sugar which leads to bloating & water retention which makes you look bigger than what your true figure actually looks like!

Try to add healthy fats like avocados, olive oil, seeds and nuts in your diet.

It’s important to remember that your body needs fat. It is a vital component of your diet, even if you are trying to lose weight. “Good” fats are needed for healthy brain function and controlling blood pressure, as well as keeping skin and hair healthy. They also help to keep you full – which means that eating them helps stop you overeating or snacking on poor-quality food (which often contains lots of sugar).

Healthy sources of fat include:

  • Avocados – one serves provides 80% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin E, along with more than 20 different types of minerals (such as zinc) and vitamins such as C, A & B6 plus folate. These nutrients help reduce inflammation in the body and protect against heart disease
  • Olive oil – rich in oleic acid which may help lower LDL cholesterol levels; olive oil also has anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce arthritis pain[3]

Don’t give up if you encounter setbacks. Know that you can still overcome it!

As you embark on your new riding career, it is important that you keep in mind that you might encounter some setbacks along the way. You might fall off your horse and injure yourself, or maybe you’ll struggle with a particular lesson for an extended period of time. Don’t give up! You will eventually succeed, but it may take longer than expected or even require more practice than anticipated.

If these kinds of things happen to you, don’t let them get you down! Instead, look at them as opportunities for growth and improvement so that next time won’t be a repeat of the same mistake! Remember: everyone makes mistakes sometimes—and everyone learns from them too if given enough opportunity and confidence in themselves (you).

For example: say one day while riding your horse she slips right out from underneath you while galloping across some mud puddles near a river bank (this actually happened once)! That could be pretty scary because without any experience under her belt yet she doesn’t know how fast they are going so she falls forward into those wet slippery channels filled with mud instead which causes both riders’ faces turn bright red from embarrassment once they realize what just happened thanks mostly due its embarrassing nature rather than anything else . . .

You can shed weight while riding your horse! Use these tips to start on your journey today!

Shedding weight while riding your horse is possible! Use these tips to start on your journey today:

  • Start small. As you may have heard before, “Little changes make big differences.” Start by walking your horse for 20-30 minutes every day.
  • Set up a goal for yourself and get a calendar so you can track it. When it comes to losing weight, setting goals is key!
  • Stay hydrated! In order to shed the pounds that have been slowing you down in the saddle, staying hydrated will help keep your metabolism up and running efficiently—in turn helping with shedding some unwanted pounds along the way! Be sure not to drink too much water though; a good rule of thumb is about half an ounce per pound of body weight (so if you weigh 120 lbs., drink 60 oz.). Don’t forget that alcohol counts too when calculating how much liquid one should consume daily! It’s always best practice just not drink at all if possible though… unless maybe it’s at midnight on New Years Eve 😉
  • Cut out all processed foods from your diet (and any other unhealthy stuff)! Not only will this help shed some unwanted pounds off those thighs but also give them more energy without getting tired while riding around all day long out there on those trails 🙂 Also try reducing/eliminating carbohydrates such as pasta as well because they cause blood sugar levels which increases hunger cravings later in time when trying not only reduce calories but also lose weight overall especially around waistline areas like stomachs or hips where we tend have fat build up easily due lack exercise movement etcetera–which means less energy wasted throughout day instead consumed going through digestive process faster than normal without eating anything except maybe some fruits here n there during midday break times after waking up early mornings before work hours begin–but nothing else really beyond fruits because too much sugar=bad idea since insulin levels spike quickly causing fatigue symptoms like headaches/dizziness dizziness nausea constipation diarrhea gas pains bloating
