I also hate that people don't think riding is a sport or it's easy. It's the **** more dangerous sport in the world! In one second you can be dead. It takes a lot of mental and physical skill, strength and training! You're dealing with a beast at least 3 times your weight.
Exactly! I get that all the time: "Oh, well horseback riding isn't really a sport." or "The horse does all the work." I like to point out that horseback riding is enough of a sport to be included in the Olympics and then offer to put them on one of the bratty ponies at the barn. Or better yet, the retired Grand Prix show jumper with his incredible height, suspension, and attitude.

Excactly! I wish at school or something one horse riding course was avalible to everyone just to show how hard, demanding it is. It only
'looks' easy because we make it look easy! ;) People really underestermate horses. I don't get how ping pong is considered more of a sport than horse riding.

It seems that way because it looks easy XD Haha. My dad comes home after 2 hours DRENCHED in sweat playing table tennis... or ping pong if you like :P

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky

Yeah, I sometimes get the "riding is easy!" thing too. And my favourite from my mom - What, you just led that horse around and then made her skip, and you call it a training lesson?!

She was commenting on me getting a lesson on lunging and groundwork.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.
