Riding Horse for Girl

Q. Is it permissible for a girl to ride horses?

A. Women are commanded to confine themselves within their homes as much as they can. They are asked not to go out without any appropriate reason. Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala says, “And stay in your houses and do not adorn yourselves like in the times of ignorance”. (Suratul Ahzaab: 33/33) As far as riding horse is concerned, it has become a form of enjoyment that may lead to forbidden and unlawful practices. Therefore, it is always advisable for a woman to avoid riding horse alone. She may be permitted to ride horse if she is accompanied by her Mahram (one with whom Nikaah is forbidden forever) or husband and the Hijaab is observed fully.
