Why I Ride

Thanks to L. over at Viva Carlos for putting together a great blog hop idea! Why do I ride?

For me, and I imagine most riders, horseback riding is more than a sport or hobby, it's a lifestyle. Living an equestrian lifestyle means....

I'd rather be at the barn

My clothing, any clothing, is fair game for dirt and green horse slobber

I am perpetually broke but will scrape up enough to go to a show at the end of the year

When I fall off I get back on
Ouch! Yes- that's me!
I live for that second of flight over a perfect jump

There is nothing better than a perfect partnership with that one special horse

And my barn family knows exactly what I'm talking about
