    1. Horse riding is very difficult. Difficult to ride horses and to explain how hard it is to ride.
    2. Horses can teach you everything. They taught me just about everything I know today.
    3. You can trust your life with a horse and he can trust his life with you.
    4. They do have emotion
    5. Everything you do around and on them is speaking to them and even if you "just sit there" you are still communicating to him. So stand square and be boss, otherwise its no surprise you aren't getting anywhere with your horse.
    6. You never "just sit there." even when you don't move or do anything, you are always doing something.

    Just became in your sport you condition yourself by running and doing intense excersises, doesn't mean that we aren't in shape because we don't do that before each ride. We condition ourselves on the horse, working more muscles than you could imagine. In your sport, you might get injured and cry, but in our sport we accept the idea that we could die. Once that left foot is in the stirrup, we accept all the things tha could go wrong, and when we get knocked down, we don't cry, we get up and march over to the horse and start again until it's right.

    I vote we take everyone who thinks horseback riding isn't a sport and put them on dificult horses, then ask the question again once they get out of ICU.

    So love the idea of putting them on racehorses I hear that comment about it not being exercise all of the time and want to choke people. I laughed and told on woman at work that is how I got my body.

    I've been riding for 3 months now, and when a guy in my class asked to see a video, I showed him one of me posting the trot, he made fun of me for not being able to canter or jump yet because "horse riding is easy" and saying that it looked ridiculous how I was getting out of the saddle. Well, buttholes, that is how you do a RISING trot.

    And did you tell him that if it's that easy, you would like to see HIM controlling a thousand pounds of sweat and muscle thundering between his legs?

    Something I would tell people is that a green horse does *not* mean that the horse is actually green. XD
