How many calories do you burn while riding a horse?

Answer

The amount of calories one can burn while participating in various equestrian sports varies greatly depending on one's weight and the type of activity in which one is partaking. For an average 130-pound woman, for example, saddling up and riding at a slow speed would burn 207 calories.

Slowly walking the horse at a steady pace would burn about 148 calories, while the slightly more vigorous act of trotting would burn about 384, which is quite a significant difference. Racing and galloping would burn the greatest amount of calories at a single time: a whopping 472. One can even burn calories while grooming one's horse. Approximately 207 calories could be burnt this way.
