The sport that I was so passionate about in my 30's, disappeared from my life in my 40's. I asked myself constantly during that time if I had lost my passion for riding and competing. I wondered if my depression was the cause or the result. I wondered if I would ever find another horse I enjoyed riding so much that I fell asleep thinking about riding.
I was almost cleaned up when Junior finally got back to the barn after a less than perfect lesson. I reminded her that we came here to learn and that horses is hard. She said, “I don’t need to be perfect, I just don’t want to suck.”
Food is a part of my equestrian life. Not so much the simple weekly dinners, but the appetizers, desserts and the constant attempts to eat something healthy at a horse show. This is one of my go-to's as a dish to pass at the Hunt Club or for a New Year's Day Movie Marathon.
#backtobromont is not about getting back to Canada or even getting back to the upper levels of the sport. It is about a toughness of spirit, a quality of training, a level of horsemanship, a belief in myself and a partnership that existed then. With the passage of time, motherhood and a lack of focus, those things slipped out of my life. I've decided I want those things back.
Once upon a time, I could sit the medium/extended trot on a big moving Thoroughbred. Childbirth and an injury had me longing for those days, in a quest to complete my USDF Bronze Medal. A little outside help put me back on track with the sitting trot!
Gift Ideas for the Equestrian This is a wonderful way to hold a barn buddy in your heart in a time of sorrow and offer something tangible as a remembrance of their partner and your friendship. The cuff bracelet is stamped with "You left hoofprints on my heart" on the inside and a horseshoe and the horse's name on the outside edges.
