As a freshman I knew I was going to be overlooked. Too much of my surprise I was placed on varsity for my pitching abilities. This only fueled my passion. Not only was I on the team but I played! Can you imagine the other team looking at the roster and finding out then were going to let at thirteen year old freshman pitch to their nineteen year old senior batters?
The practices were the same structure, but the weather manipulated the way I preformed. The blazing sun no longer shot its rays down to the humid black track; instead, it hid in the clouds as the bitter racing winds stung my face. Slowly, I gained confidence in the jumps I was doing and started to enjoy the little things about the sport, like the instant when I glide into the smooth sand. When jumping, I felt the release of my stress as I flew high into the sky. Since sophomore year, I barely missed the state track meet and the Free State record by a couple of inches.
Although it is true that I am one of few who can say that they have natural ability for riding I still had a difficult time learning the sport. I had to fall numerous times to understand why exactly I was slipping from my saddle. It wouldn't have been so bad if it weren't for the fact that most of the time I'm paired with a seven foot tall horse. You get splitting headaches or you wake up to find your shoulders are black and blue, with blisters dotting your hands and you'd find it difficult to stand straight like you normally would.
After we watched the fireworks it was late, so it was time to go back to the villa so we could do more fun stuff the next day. We had to go walk out by the security people again and we saw more crying kids because they did not want to leave. I did not want to leave either because I had such a fun time spending the day at Walt Disney World with my parents. The day was so memorable and such a blast, and I am so grateful my parents took me on that trip to Florida. Going to Walt Disney World and Orlando, Florida itself was an amazing trip that I will never
From best friends to passionate to you become obsessed. “She wanted something that drove her as hard as I was driven to make my life about horses” (Jaffe). Once the horse feels your passion it is hard to tell who has more passion, the horse or the equestrian. The 7.1 million people in the US that show horses all have a special passion for horses. The average equestrian spends about 25% or more of their day with a horse, or doing something that is horse related.
Also, people will always feel regret if they have never try. Connecting to the theme it is important to chasing dreams even the finally consequence is not as same as what you expect. During the process of chasing dreams, people will learn more and get more even than they achieve their dreams. Thus, why don’t people just try to challenge themselves? They will be surprise when they find what had they
Adapt Survival of the fittest goes for horse bettors as well. Embracing state-of-the-art technology and streams of information is mandatory for those who want to stay ahead of their peers and the growing competition. In this arena, evolution eliminates the weak, so users must adapt to the ever-changing landscape of horse racing. The days of betting against long layoff horses or horses with no statistics are gone. Similarly, ignoring the colossal amounts of information readily available through publications and websites will be detrimental to most horse
We immediately notice that our horses are total opposites. One is a short, fat Palomino named Buck who seems to be more interested in whatever he was chewing on at the moment than who we are or why we are there. The other was a tall, very spirited Paint Horse named Chief. Chief unlike Buck was more than ready to put the dirt under his hooves. The owner of these two horses decides to take chief to a round pin and work off some of his energy.
With all the force I possessed in me, I punted the ball to my teammate and with his strength he leaped to head the ball into the goal and scored the first goal! Everybody was celebrating, but we still knew that this wasn 't the end. As the other team was settling back in their positions, I finally had
As it was almost time for me to start running, I was so excited. When they called my name to run, the butterflies in my stomach built up more and more. The first event was the states race the one event that I don 't practice a lot. My run was really fast but not fast enough to keep up with these people. The next event was the poles.
I had to get my mind right that whole weekend because I knew it was going to be a big game for me. I just have to go out there and “Ball out.” People doubted me and said I couldn 't guard number 3 so I watch pros and trained myself because I knew he was a good receiver. When people doubt me I get mad and try my best to prove them wrong. At the end of the game we came through and won. One of the best games I 've ever had in my life.
I remember thinking of my trainer’s words, “Anything is possible”. I jumped up at the right moment. My head connected perfectly with the ball and I drilled it into the top right corner of the net. There was no way the goalie could get her hands on it. I turned and saw my trainer on the Header sideline and he was going crazy!
He was only a two year old, so it would be awhile before I could really start him on the barrels hard because his joints hadn’t fully developed yet. I wanted to buy a mare that was ready to start on barrels and that I could breed to our stallion.I sold the colt within two days of posting the ad, and bought a mare soon after. My mare needed a ton of riding to be at the level my colt was at, but I finally have her at that level. I am now starting her on barrels, and I am so excited for her future. Riding horses my entire life has taught me so many things.
For example, Rano would tie a rope around Luis’s head and play cowboy treating him like a horse, he would also push him off from the roof of the house. Luis was often times bullied by his older brother, which inspired other children to mess around with Luis as well. Luis had a difficult time adapting because his family was constantly moving from one
Why one is because of fear and failure and what if it doesn 't work out for myself and the fear of not getting to be successful at my dream. It is necessary for me to get the haters out of my life to live my dream and keep going till I achieve my goal. Running towards dreams life gives me a very special meaning what I do is separate me from other people that don’t need to be in my life and the wasting time on people that don 't need to be in it and the people that always down me about my goals. to work toward this goal of barrel racing I am gonna try to achieve this summer. I challenge myself to be the best that I will try to be and with that it will take me not to doubt myself be positive and dedicate myself and i 'll go somewhere with my dream hopefully to the NFR someday which means
