When you are riding a horse at a trot you can either sit the trot (something that require a lot of practice to be able to do well), or do a rising trot where you post (go up and down in the saddle) in time with the horse's outside leg.

Is it bad for ones body to horse ride and do gymnastics?

At the same time? pretty impressive but highly dangerous. Answer 2: Although as stated above it can be dangerous to do both gymnastics and horseback riding at the same time, there is a sport based around doing just that. It is called Vaulting. A single human or a team will jump onto the back of a moving, either trotting or cantering horse ,that is being lunged in a large circle and perform gymnastic maneuvers to music. Vaulting is quite dangerous as the 'riders' have no control over the horse, nor any protective gear, and usually no shoes either. If they fall they can be injured or killed.

What age would you be to ride a 13hands horse?

It's not so much age as it is height and weight. I'm 5 foot tall and can ride a 13 hand horse but I'm light weight also. So long as the horse isn't carrying more than 20 % of it's own body weight and the riders legs sit in the correct place age won't matter.

How do you horse jump?

training and hard work. you can start by trotting over ground poles, and then cantering over them. develop trust in your horse, and get your horse to trust you. then you can set up a cross-rail, and start by trotting over it. then canter. this takes a long time to work up to. if your horse has never jumped before, if you have never ridden before, if you do not feel comfortable, don't do it without a professional of a certified instructor. Just incase you mean how do you personally jump, its really easy. as you trot (or canter to a jump) don't look as the poles or fence. You want to look straight ahead or where ur gonna turn, cuz you look where you go, so if you look at the ground... well that's where you'll end up. remind your horse that theres nothing to be afraid of. then as u near the jump, slowly rise up into your 2 point position and jump. give your horse head room with the reins but don't have sloppy reins. when you land go onto the next jump. when your done, give your horse a quick pat on the neck. when you ride you are one with your horse, so keep in mind that you have to tell your horse what to do from your body and not as much noise. that my friend, is how you jump (:

How does riding horses burn calories?

Riding a horse that is trotting is a lot of work. You are constantly moving up and down over the saddle. Your arms get a real workout just holding the reins and moving them side to side to 'steer' the horse. Even when the horse is walking, your back muscles are constantly flexing so that your back is vertical. In a canter or gallop, the muscles in the rider's complete body are exercising hard. If you have ever seen a jockey after even a mile and a half race, you can see that s(he) is exhausted. And jockeys are in wonderful shape!

No, not on purpose. Horses are obligate herbivores and do not eat meat.
