To Become An Equestrian

Somewhere behind the athlete you have become:

The coaches who have pushed you.

The people who believed in you.

The long hours of schooling.

The dirt beneath your nails.

The tears you have cried.

The horses you have given your heart to.

It is the little girl who fell in love with a pony and never looked back.

It is being thrown in the dirt, getting up, brushing it off and trying until you succeed.

It is a passion filled with strength, determination, precision and so much more.

This is the definition of a true sport where companionship is the key to success and fear is not an option.
