I have heard and seen this happen many times before, where people who rode as children or teenagers gradually stop riding as they get out of school and start studying, getting a job, etc.
My sister for instance, she loved riding as a teenager. Now at 21, she hasn't ridden properly for maybe a few years.
Then I have heard many stories as well where people just stop riding after school because they don't have time and energy.
I don't really see anything wrong with this, as I can understand that sometimes you either can't afford it or your job/family takes up too much of your time.
I can't really speak yet, as I am only 16, but I have made a vow to myself that no matter what I will try my utmost hardest to carry on horse riding after school and studying.
How many people here have seen others who have lost interest, and who has stuck with riding through thick and thin? I would like it if you shared your stories on how you (as adults) have kept your passion for horse riding alive and how you make the time for horses in your life.
Also, how many children/teenagers here, like me, are convinced that you will carry on riding after school?
