Do you love horse riding? Do you love equestrian sports?

October 18, 2019

Do you love horse riding? Is it something
you could not live without? You’re not alone. Millions of people around the world feel the
same way. Those who are involved with horses and the
equestrian world generally, whether on an occasional basis, or as a full time occupation,
do not need to be reminded of how the love of horses can take over one’s life. A passion for equestrianism can last a lifetime,
and may be more important to a person than anything, or anyone else. Horse riding is one of Britain’s most popular
activities. For some this means just the occasional pony trekking holiday in Wales. For others it’s a regular weekend ride through
the beautiful English countryside. For some it means daily rides and practice
in order to compete in show jumping and dressage, or to exercise and train for regular horse
racing events. Horse riders engage in all kinds of equestrian
sports; horse racing, hunting, polo, eventing, show jumping, gymkhanas, to name a few. And of course there are other sports which
may not involve horse riding, but which still include horses as the main feature, like carriage
driving and ploughing competitions with heavy, or shire horses. There is often a symbiotic relationship between
horses and their owners, or those who take care of them on a regular basis. They need
each other and the partnership is mutually beneficial. It may not always seem that way
when you have to get up long before dawn to feed your horses on a freezing winter’s morning,
but the advantages far outweigh the disadvantages. Someone once described horses as the dolphins
of the land. By that they meant that our equine friends are super intelligent, and in partnership
with human kind. They have accompanied us on our journey through history since humans
first tamed and domesticated wild animals, and despite all the advances in technology
and transportation this relationship shows no sign of abating. If anything, horses and humans need each other
now more than ever. We have become divorced from nature to an extent that it’s becoming
bad for our health and caring for horses can put us back in touch with the natural world;
fresh air, clean water, open skies. So whatever your interest in horses, whether
you are a skilled horseman or horsewoman, jockey, or just someone who loves horse riding
on an occasional basis, cherish the time you have in the saddle. Experience it again with fresh senses. Tune
in to the elements and seasons around you. Riding your horse in this way is probably
the most rewarding and enriching experiences you can have, but then you probably know that
already. Thanks for watching. If you found anything
