christian baleChristian Bale has said he believes learning to ride horses has helped his acting career.

The Batman star explained recently that learning the skill was a huge confidence boost and that in turn helped him as an actor: “I love horses. I’ve learned from them.

“Once you master a horse - but it also masters you - you gain more confidence in yourself.

“When you can mount it and move it and move along with it, that is a hard-won and very real accomplishment.”
