It’s funny what kind of thoughts stress and nerves will give you. These thoughts are normal, and every adult and youth rider (and parents 🤣) have them. And although you don’t think it’s funny when they are going through your head…. You’ll giggle after the fact! 😊
Remember to find the fun in things….. inside AND outside of the arena!

We’ve all been there.

Recently, APHA Amateur Wendy Brown mused, “Why am I here? My horse and I aren’t good enough. I could be doing _____ right now.”

“THEN someone, typically another codependent equine obsessed friend, notices you may be having an internal meltdown and talks you off the ledge.

….you then realize you are behaving like an ungrateful Veruca Salt. You pull up your breeches and get back in the ring. When low and behold ONE judge, that likely needs glasses, gives you a ribbon and you’re back to eating Mac N Cheese and mailing off your World Show entries.”

This sport shapes us to be better! Plain and simple! We all go through the same hardships and victories. Weather you show your horse or just have horses for pleasure, horses will teach you:
to be great-full, humble, supportive, compassionate, determined, dedicated, patient, kind, and sometimes stern.
You will work with pressure, perform through your nerves, put others first, become a caretaker, and be a friend… Thats the real Win 🏆

Showing horses is not for everyone. It’s long days and even shorter nights it’s putting eight hours in at your job then going to the barn and putting in a few more. It’s learning to speak a completely different language with your partner who happens to be 1500 pounds. it’s crying when you win and smiling when you don’t. It’s hoping that the judges see your hard work but understanding if they don’t. You then go home and you work harder. it’s learning to lose gracefully and win humbly. It’s put your horse and it’s health first. It’s being just a little bit more brave than you are scared and doing it anyway.
This is not a sport you pick up and lay down. it’s a lifestyle.  it’s being thankful for every ride you have because there might not be a next one. It’s not for the faint of heart. Success in this sport it’s not measured in trophies and ribbons alone, but also in memories and lifelong friendships. It’s working hard to make each stride better then the last. It’s hearing things about yourself and your horse that is like a knife to the heart. It’s being at a show, and wondering if you even belong there. It’s dedication and learning not to quit, no matter what.

What keeps us there is the love of the sport and horses. The benefits far outweigh the negative if you can handle it and The rewards are amazing. Not sure who said this - “The end is not the reward; the path you take, the emotions that course through you as you grasp life - that is the reward”.

They are friends for life, barn teammates, and each other’s ride or die…… but they are football RIVALS! (Jen is lucky we...

Y'all I just got done watching this documentary, The Great Flip-Off, about ba****ck riders in the circus. It's so inspiring to see how dedicated these riders are to their training. Makes me wanna get out here immediately to train. It's out on Amazon if you wanna watch it later :)
Thank you for teaching me how to ride a horse. It has been a marvelous experience over the past three years during which I learned a lot about horses, was in two horse shows, won some ribbons and developed some nice memories which I’ll always cherish. Virginia Beaton and Jenna Striffler are the best. It’s time me to go onto other activities but thank you so much!
Pony Clubs local Fundraiser! Family Friendly! Watch Kentucky Derby, dinner, raffles, etc.
Hi everyone! At the end of Congress I forgot to take my medal off the awards wall and it went MIA. Can everyone do me a favor and double check the medals you took home and see if the one pictured below got mixed in? It says Level 1 Working Hunter on it. (Which was the Green WH) Thank you so much ladies and gents!! 🏅❤️🏅❤️
