Bottom Line: HR is renowned as an effective sport for young and old women and men.Around 3 yr riding experienced elites are preeminent at balance capability compared to 1 yr riding experienced amateurs.Exercise intensity estimated from heart rate was significantly higher in elites (P<0.05).

ABSTRACT
Horse riding (HR) is a sport harmonized with rider and horse. HR is renowned as an effective sport for young and old women and men. There is rare study regarding comparison between elite horse riders and amateurs. We aimed to investigate comprehensive ranges of parameters such as change of lactate, heart rate, calorie, VO2max, skeletal muscle mass, body water, body fat, etc between amateurs and professionals to emphasize HR not only as a sport training but also as a therapeutic aspect. We performed 3 experiments for comparing physical fitness, body compositions, lactate value, heart rate and calorie consumption change before and after riding between amateurs and elites. Around 3 yr riding experienced elites are preeminent at balance capability compared to 1 yr riding experienced amateurs. During 18 min horse riding, skeletal muscle mass and body fat were interestingly increased and decreased, respectively. Lactate response was more sensitive in elites rather than amateurs and its recovery was reversely reacted. Exercise intensity estimated from heart rate was significantly higher in elites (P<0.05). The similar pattern of calorie consumption during riding between amateurs and elites was shown. Horse riding possibly induces various physiological (muscle strength, balance, oxidative capability, flexibility, and metabolic control) changes within body and is thus highly recommended as combined exercise for women, children, and aged as therapeutic and leisure sport activity.

Exercise intensity by % of maximal heart rate. Exercise intensity during horse riding (HR) was pursued by calculating % to maximal heart rate. Average heart rate of amateurs was about 82% and that of elites were about 89%. Elite has significantly higher exercise intensity during HR compared to amateurs (P=0.037). Data were described as mean±standard deviation (S.D).

Mentions: Heart rate (Polar F1 heart rate monitor, Pola Electro, Finland) (Table 4) and calorie consumption (Cosmed Quark b2, COSMED, Italy) (Fig. 4) were measured during Show Jumping which consists of a course including 3 min rest, 2 min walk, 5 min fast, 3 min walk, jump, and recovery. Exercise intensity was assumed as a ratio of heart rate to maximum heart rate (Fig. 2).
