HI Spy: What will your equestrian life be like in ten years?

Can you predict the future? What will you be doing horses a decade from now?


Printer Friendly

Mares and Foals Look into your crystal ball. What do you see? Probably—and hopefully—lots of horses.

None of us know with certainty what the future holds, but we can take a good guess. Imagine your life in the year 2022. If you’re just starting out now with riding lessons, perhaps you see yourself as an experienced equestrian and a horse owner in the future. Maybe you’re training hard today so that you can be working towards an Olympic qualification for 2024. Or if you’re a rider of a certain age, perhaps you see yourself winding down a bit and spending your golden years on the back of a reliable trail horse.

On the other hand, if you’ve got a reasonably young horse and a happy farm today, your vision for 2022 might just be to still be enjoying the company of the same horse on the same farm with the same friends.

Ten years ago, you could not connect to your favorite equine retailers or celebrity trainers via Facebook and twitter. You couldn’t upload videos of your rides to YouTube (or to, for that matter) and get critiques from strangers thousands of miles away. When you look into the future, do you think major changes in technology will affect the horse world?

In ten years I'll be 25. I hope to have a large or small horse farm, be training horses for other people and teaching my kids to ride!

When I turn 16 I'm going to become a horse trainer. But in ten years when I'm 23 I plan on going to the Snaffle Bit Futurity. Wish me luck!

I currently do not have a horse, but I love them more than anything! In ten years I will be 23 and hopefully on the back of an ex-racehorse (preferably a Standardbred). :)

In ten years, I'd love to be working as an equine nutritionist or vet; and have my own self-designed barn, complete with a heated wash room and large indoor and outdoor arenas!
