Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed. SO TRUE !
I'm never giving up my goal of competing professionally in show jumping, no matter how impossible it seems or how many people say I'm crazy and won't make it. Anything is possible if you never give up.
No one, and I mean no one, could ever convince me that riding isn't one of the toughest, most extreme sports on earth. This stuff takes guts. riding is the only sport where the competitor must have her medical information strapped to her arm.
