I had to fight my school system to get them to recognize my horseback riding as a sport that could be applied for the PE credit we were required to earn outside of school. If I hadn't been able to convince them, I would have had to join an after school sport and wouldn't have had any time to be with my horses. I was having none of that!!

How did you managed to convince them? Do you train and show?

It's RAINING!

How did you convince them? Video, essay? I would really like to know! I think it would be interesting to know what you did!

They say home is where the heart is. That must mean my home is ontop of an Angel getting ready to fly.

oh my god
AMAZING videos!! I actually got goose bumps watching those. I love them both!! But the first one was my fav, which it didnt cut off.

I get in that argument alot with people, and even though I get them to shut up I never actually... win. Like they still don't beilive me. They think its cool to watch, fun to do. But its not hard,its not a real sport

Haha the one time I was watching show jumping on TV and my dad watched a bit of it. He kept saying, how the horse is doing all the work. That the rider is just sitting there and not working,sure it takes timing, and stide counting,and balence but its not work. The horse is doing all the work. No matter what I said I couldnt convince him otherwise! But as soon as he said it the announcer mentions how the riders have to be in excelent shape to do this sport. All he said was "oh" lol.

Same with my mom, if she watches me work with my horse.if he starts sweating or if I ask him to do something, he refuses and says 'no' and we work through it and I get him doing it. Suddenly i'm a bad mother and im pushing him to hard. And then she gives him a mint.

I love my parents, and my friends. But there not horse people. They know I love horses and riding,they know its my life. But they don't understand it

Beauty is not diminished by those who refuse to see, hear,feel or in any way sense it. If you refuse to see beauty its you who is weakened.
