A Robbin decided to build her nest on our pole organizer in the outdoor….not the most ideal spot. 🤦🏼‍♀️ The first photo was May 29th, the day they started hatching and the second photo was today. They grow so quick! Sometimes it’s the simple things that put a smile on your face. 😊

Copied from another industry professionals post:
This is a great reminder to anyone who wants to be better. This sport takes hard work and dedication.
🏆❤️

“Instead of questioning your trainer why your kid is not excelling as quickly as others in their riding, maybe look at how much your kid practices. If you’re only willing to commit to two lessons a month for example, that’s 2 hours per every 30 days on average. 2 hours out of 720 hours a month. Now let’s look at a year. 24 hours total. On average your kid then practices 1 day out of 365 days per year... let that sink in.

Our sport is much harder than most and takes a lot of practice and skill, but for some reason people do not look at it this way.

For example when I ran track, we practiced minimum 5 days a week for 2 hours a day. I put the sweat and time in to improve. Chorus - practice daily. Cheerleading - daily. Football - daily.

Now, I also understand our sport is expensive. However, I find it imperative that as a parent you look at these numbers... and before you come complaining “my kid isn’t improving fast enough,” truly look at how much she practices. I am good at what I do, but I can’t work miracles.

I constantly get parents comparing their kid to student “X.” However, student X is out at the barn working for extra ride time on anything I will give them and always ready to put in the work. As trainers we always have horses that need to be hacked. “But I want to jump,” I hear so often and the biggest thing is that these riders don’t realize jumping starts with flat work. Come work in exchange for ride time. Drop your stirrups and practice what we do in our lessons. Make yourself stronger and watch how much quicker you excel. All jumping is is flat work with sticks in the way.

I was a barn rat growing up. I worked my butt off just to get on any horse my trainer would let me. The bratty pony needs a schooling? Done. The wild TB needs a hack? Done. The true and seasoned lesson horse needs a light hack! Perfect! I can work on me.

We need to truly change these mindsets in our industry. Let’s be honest with your expectations.

24 hours - 1 day - out of 365 days. Let that sink in.

Now let’s just add once a week lessons. 4 hours a month - 48 hours a year - 2 days out of 365..”

Okay, that’s enough…🤨

Meet Agricultural Business Development student and entrepreneur Sydney Schmidt. She is the manager of Schmitt Valley Farms in Lowman NY. Sydney is also a world class winning equestrian! Schmidt Valley Farm.
Thanks you Dawn, Rod & Sydney - It's nice to be back at our summer home.... if only it was a little warmer....
FYI- wearing half chaps doesn't make an outfit riding attire. * note shorts and sandals*
