The beginning years of a horses life is the most important. Young horses should be handled mostly by people. "A foal should be handled by people almost right away after their birth" (Bell).

After hearing about the Shangri-La Therapeutic Academy of Riding (STAR) and its work with horses, It was not until a friend offered to go with me to the information and training session that I had really considered volunteering there. During the lesson, leaders of the organization explained that STAR 's mission was to assist children and adults alike who are faced with both mental and physical illnesses by teaching them to ride and take care of horses. Sitting in a big, unfamiliar room filled with other potential volunteers, I definitely didn 't feel all that confident. There were even times during the training that I was not sure if I would be able to handle the responsibility. My limited experience working with horses as well as individuals with disabilities caused me to doubt myself in the beginning.

For my out-of-class experience, I chose to learn how to train a horse. I took the time out of a Saturday with a friend in College Station that trains horses, to learn how to train a horse and ended up learning a lot about horses in general, horse training, and myself. During my session, I learned that you must be firm, but fair. Teaching in pain and fear is not beneficial for the horse, nor the trainer. The goal in horse training is to make the horse want what the trainer wants so that both can enjoy a mutually symbiotic and professional relationship.
I think it means that someone might not know there full potential until they get pushed into it. Or they might be to scared to actually go through with things if theres an option out of it. At one time when i was younger I was too scared to raise the the jumps in the lessons at the barn and my instructor never forced me to. Then a few weeks later she told me to go over the jumps late instead of before I started my course, so I wouldn’t have time to overthink it and chicken out or get nervous. I never knew until that day how amazing it felt to be flying over jumps through the air.
This is the start of a horse 's history till 2000. Abercrombie was born in 1975 the spring of May and was raised on Walnut Hall Farm and his owners were L. Keith Bulen and Shirley A. Mitchell. He was a bay standardbred and stallion which gave his owner hope that he might be the next winner for the Messengers Stakes harness race.

So in 1978 Abercrombie was first broke by Jerry Landess, later Cecil Peacock took over training for two years before letting Glen Garnsey take over when he realized the potential behind Abercrombie.

Prompt: Horseback Riding and how it has shaped me to be the person I am today. As I galloped above Uniform, the new horse I had inherited from my father, I was facing a whole new challenge ahead of me. He was way more energetic than the ones I I had ridden before and obviously had a rough past, as he was very spooky while jumping fences. Having people close to the obstacles or unusual things like the big hat of my coach, would bring dark past memories to him, as he most likely was mistreated while being a foal. I had to be cautious at the beginning as I could not afford him taking control of me so early on.
