  • Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

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."
