Why Am I Here Again? A Heartfelt Amateur Blog

Why Am I Here Again? A Heartfelt Amateur Blog

By Wendy Brown This ridiculously expensive, time sucking hobby is NOT for the faint of heart. It will take a toll on your skin and bones. It will damage your bank account and potentially take you away from family who may begin to wonder if you love your horse more than them. It will test […]

Seeing a Trend: Oversimplified Patterns?

Seeing a Trend: Oversimplified Patterns?

As an amateur and long-time showman, I personally prefer a pattern that has at least enough difficulty that I feel I’m able to exhibit the hard work that has gone into training and preparing my horse, and that I can get my monies worth. By showing at breed shows, I expect a higher level of challenge than I would see at an open show. I don’t believe I’m alone in this. Horsemanship patterns should ask for more than what a Western Pleasure class asks for on the rail. Equitation should ask for more than a Hunter Under Saddle class. Showmanship should have at least one pivot. I don’t believe that novice classes should exhibit on the exact same patterns, or almost identical, to an amateur or older youth.

If you buy into this industry, it’s an investment. The horse is most often the cheapest part of the equation. It leads to a barn or board, a truck, a trailer, a property, and a lot of life choices to make it work in between- especially having family and friends who support your personal goals. Again, in realizing this, I reiterate. Do what you can afford to do.

If You Give a Kid a Pony…

If you give a kid a pony, they will need a saddle to go with it. You’ll buy them the best saddle you can afford, and then they will probably want a bridle, and a saddle pad, and some boots too…

In Love With Louie, the Lesson Horse By: Julie Timperley In the fall of 2020, we were still in the middle of a pandemic and my 12-year-old daughter, Kate, was doing education online.

An Experiment- Do You Know the Temperature Inside Your Horse Trailer?

By: Jo Christensen Temperatures inside horse trailers are a concern to most endurance riders I know. We tend to haul very long distances, both in the heat and in the cold. I had to do some winter hauling one day, and before I left I installed a temperature monitor inside my horse trailer. What I […]
