Blog Hop: Continuation School
Why do you continue to ride?
Only a horse person would understand- it's apart of me.
Horses have been apart of my life for 22 years.. with about a total of a year in there of little breaks. I don't know life without them since they came into my life at the age of 8.
It is something that I have poored and invested SO much of my time, energy and money into- something I know I can do and am competent at.
I don't know where I got the horse bug because my parents are not horse people- none of my family is ha!
At the age of 8 my mom said if I called around and found a place to take lessons- I could take lessons. Little did she know that I would really do it :)
And so started the life time commitment... starting lessons, riding in shows, riding in high school, to riding in college and buying my first horse.
It's expensive- but I feel it's worth it. I don't shop for clothes, we don't take vacations or even day trips, don't have a nice car, live in a smaller house.. you get the point :)
22 years later I am still at it and won't quit!
