Here's to show days: early mornings, long days, late nights, truck rides, hotel rooms, learning courses, warmups, sunburns, rope burns, countless hours of practice, taking the fall, bruised egos, determination, shavings/hair/hay stuck in your hair and clothes, thousands of dollars, your show team, your trainer, your partner, the drama, hurrying up and waiting, show clothes, competition, missed classes, expectations, blue ribbons, laying down the perfect trip... and most of all, our sport, RIDING.
(Author: Stacia Sullivan)
Somewhere behind the rider you've become,
The hours of practice you've put in, & the
Coaches that have pushed you, is the kid
Who fell in love with the sport and never
Looked back. Ride for him/her."
