The three most important things I've learned in life from my experience
with showing horses:
I have learned to have fun with my horse, work hard, and never give up.
From a parent’s perspective, the three most important thing my child has
gained from showing horses are:
My child has learned that she and the horse are a team. In order for the team
to grow and learn, the horse and rider must understand one another and
communicate effectively. An incredible bond has formed between our horse
and my child in developing an understanding of one another. My child has also
learned the importance of goal setting. It takes much effort, discipline, and
dedication to be successful in the show arena. My child has gained an incredible amount of confidence through showing horses. I have seen her confidence blossom in all facets of her life due to her experience showing her horse.
