“What is Equestrian?
It’s the bleary eyed 4 AM mornings, 4 hour drives; Memorizing hunter and jumper courses .Cleaning stalls, riding in 102 degree weather, sweat, blood and bruises;
It’s the perfume of saddle soap, liniment and a job well done;It’s showing at 10 PM when you’ve been awake since 3 AM;It’s everyday of the week, having a person yell at you until your in tears.It’s finding new friends in an unexpected way;It’s spooks and braiding until your fingers bleed;It’s hauling a state away and paying an arm and a leg to have a judge tell you you just aren’t good enough;It’s a day in and day out sport, there’s no fouls or red cards;It’s working that much harder to be better;It’s practicing everyday, no matter the circumstances;It’s looking good while working your ass off and not letting it show;
It’s my Life.
And I love it.♥”—(via equestrianobsessions)
