What Ever Happened to "Serviceably" Sound? - David Ramey, DVM When I first got out of veterinary school and started looking at horses prior to purchase (usually referred to as a “vet check” or a prepurchase exam), the horses usually fit into one of three categories. The first category was the horse with no problems noted at the time of the exam. That decis...

Let your child have a bad ride.
I know you want to protect them from the hardships of this world.
I know you want to give them success and good experiences.
I know you don't want to see them get hurt. To see them fall. To see them fail.
But, hear me out, let your child have a bad ride.

Let them cry the tears of frustration.
Let them shake the sand out from the inside of their riding pants.
Let them face the fear building inside of them.
Let them step back on again.

Yes, let your child have a bad ride.
Let them hate the horse that challenges them.
Let them learn what fight and passion and ambition mean.
Let them realize that when they refuse to quit the horse will take the time to listen.

Grant them the joy of realizing that they are connecting with another living being.
Grant them the joy of realizing that they, although they are small, can be powerful.
Grant them the joy of seeing their hard work pay off, through the days of tears can come a love unspeakable.

Yes, let your child have a bad ride.
Afterall, life will grant us plenty of them.

Super interesting that most school sports require at least 2 hours of practice a day but most riders only lesson for 2 hours a week....

Never seen the math on this before but it sure is interesting when you do the calculations.

" Come work in exchange for ride time. Drop your stirrups and practice what we do in our lessons. Make yourself stronger and watch how much quicker you excel. All jumping is is flat work with sticks in the way. "

Megan Nicole Hopkins

Instead of questioning your trainer why your kid is not excelling as quickly as others in their riding, maybe look at how much your kid practices. If you’re only willing to commit to two lessons a month for example, that’s 2 hours per every 30 days on average. 2 hours out of 720 hours a month. Now let’s look at a year. 24 hours total. On average your kid then practices 1 day out of 365 days per year... let that sink in.

Our sport is much harder than most and takes a lot of practice and skill, but for some reason people do not look at it this way.

For example when I ran track, we practiced minimum 5 days a week for 2 hours a day. I put the sweat and time in to improve. Chorus - practice daily. Cheerleading - daily. Football - daily.

Now, I also understand our sport is expensive. However, I find it imperative that as a parent you look at these numbers... and before you come complaining “my kid isn’t improving fast enough,” truly look at how much she practices. I am good at what I do, but I can’t work miracles.

I constantly get parents comparing their kid to student “X.” However, student X is out at the barn working for extra ride time on anything I will give them and always ready to put in the work. As trainers we always have horses that need to be hacked. “But I want to jump,” I hear so often and the biggest thing is that these riders don’t realize jumping starts with flat work. Come work in exchange for ride time. Drop your stirrups and practice what we do in our lessons. Make yourself stronger and watch how much quicker you excel. All jumping is is flat work with sticks in the way.

I was a barn rat growing up. I worked my butt off just to get on any horse my trainer would let me. The bratty pony needs a schooling? Done. The wild TB needs a hack? Done. The true and seasoned lesson horse needs a light hack! Perfect! I can work on me.

We need to truly change these mindsets in our industry. Let’s be honest with your expectations.

24 hours - 1 day - out of 365 days. Let that sink in.

Now let’s just add once a week lessons. 4 hours a month - 48 hours a year - 2 days out of 365..

Great Athletic Teams... no job is beneath you... all roles and responsibilities are valued... always be looking for anything you can do to help the team or a teammate!!!

All it takes is one horse.

Every rider, at some stage, reaches the point where they think ‘can I really keep doing this?’. The point where you start to picture what life would be like without the disappointment, stress, worry and heartbreak. You sit and reflect on years of hard work, blood, sweat, tears, as well as financial investments or sacrifices and think ‘is it really worth it?’.

But it’s at this point that you might just be lucky enough to meet a special horse...that one horse that changes the way you see everything. They won’t necessarily be the horse you wanted, they won’t tick every box on your “dream horse” list and they will probably be the horse that prompts raised eyebrows from your friends when you try and justify why this seemingly “unsuitable” animal is a good thing and how they have actually saved you from the lifetime of regret you’d have to live with if you’d decided to hang up your hat for good.

These horses might stick around forever, they might only stay a while, but you can be sure they’ll be in your life until their work is done. You’ll look back on that time that you almost gave up and only ever remember that horse, the horse that made you realise you need the dark to see how beautiful the stars are, the horse that reminded you that without a little rain, the tallest, strongest flowers wouldn’t be able to grow, the horse that couldn’t take away how much life hurts sometimes, but would always give you a mane to cry into and a reason to smile.

These horses may take you down a completely different road or may keep you firmly on the path you’ve been travelling. The important part is you let them decide. They come into your life for a reason, whether it’s to realign your focus or shift it completely. You have to trust that these horses will take you where you need to be and just enjoy the ride.

The path is never straight or smooth when it comes to horses, and no sane person would think any less of you for walking away from something that carries the potential to make you feel so deflated, disappointed and heartbroken after investing so much into it, and yet the majority of us always seem to, somehow, pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and get back in the saddle. Why?

Because all is takes is that one horse.
