Many people think of riding as just riding on the horse. But, there are many tasks you need to do in order to keep your horse “rideable”. “Lifting weights?

That's just doing chores.” (Ruis) This shows the work we need to do every single day around the barn in order to ride and keep our horses healthy.

Amazing people like the late Michael Osborne have played a huge role in the international development of horse racing.

When you are going to start your horse, you need to make sure that you have about ten days that you can spend with him nonstop. Foundation ground training is one of the most important types of training (Bell). According to Laura Bell, "Foundation ground training is high up on the list of most important trainings a Horse will ever receive, but often it is overlooked or gone over so quickly that it 's not solid." I think that training your own horse is one of the most peaceful experiences that there is. It does involve a lot of patience, having a open mind, respect, the ability to solve some problems, and it also creates a good
Source A, “The Sport - the Life- of Rodeo” says, “Just like in basketball, there is a team. My team consists of my horses, my parents and everyone who helps me keep my horses working, including my vet ad my farrier, who shoes the horses,” (Pallesen). In high school rodeo, I always do anything to make my equine athletes feel their best. Our horses travel together so much that they pretty become a team.

As the years went on, I progressed to different ponies to learn all the tricks and skills. Finally, this year I started riding the big horses. I now ride a horse named April. She’s huge and as sweet and cuddly as a dog. She’s very obedient although, she often requires the little extra effort.

See, the bond between a horse and rider is one like no other, and any experienced equestrian will tell you the same thing. It requires more trust than anything else I have ever experienced in my ninteen years of living.

But compared to my native country (Ecuador), the United States has a lot more wheelchair accessible places than Ecuador. Which I find it very sad, because in Ecuador there are many people who can’t even afford a wheelchair but they are able to manage to use different types of materials to create their own wheelchair.

I spent my summer at Race2Ring, a rehabilitation center for retired horses. This center is dedicated to fueling the horse-human connection through equine rescue, rehabilitation and retraining. After a horse is rehabilitated and retrained they are available for adoption. The goal is to place these horses in qualified partnerships so that they may reach their full potential in a productive second career, dually providing a horse-human relationship for people in need. Upon graduation of the program, Race2Ring screens qualified partnerships, placing horses into new careers with approved adopters.
