My Horse's motto: You ask me what sport I do, I say I'm an equestrian. You tell me it's not a sport. You tell me it's easy. You tell me it takes not skill. You tell me we just sit there. You tell me we aren't athletes. You tell me it's just a silly hobby.
But I ask you...
Have you ever trusted something so unpredictable? Something that has a mind of it's own? Have you ever fallen from 10 ft going 35 mph, brushed yourself off and got back in the saddle? Have you ever ran full speed towards a solid obstacle? Jumped something way taller than you? Performed an intricate dance with an animal who doesn't speak your own language? Have you ever galloped around a tiny barrel?
Have you ever slid to a halt in 3 seconds? Have you attempted a handstand on a moving creature?
So, before you underestimate us,
think to yourself....
Have you ever had a teammate ten times your size? Have you ever practiced 5 hours a day, 7 days a week? Have you ever had a connection with a 1400 pound animal? Have you ever risked your life for a sport?
Still think it's easy? ;)
