The sport of Equestrian is a very unique one, in which you have a delicate partnership with an animal more than twice your size. Unlike basketball our "ball" has a mind and spirt of it's own. Equestrian is ranked the most dangerous sport and for very good reason too. In just an instant in this sport the rider can find themsleves seriously injurged or even dead. It's a sport that takes ample amounts of time and patience. I personally have experienced the blood, sweat, dedication and tears (mostly of joy) that the rider endures in the sport. The rider is constantly foucusing on a million aspects of their position at once. Unlike many other sports there is a lot of behind the scene work. We have to take care of our equitment and more importantly our horses daily. In this sport there are no timeouts, no dueovers, no saftety nets. In the sport of equestrian the rider gives everything to their partners and in return they get life. We owe everything to our horses. Equestrian is a sport unlike anything, it's a passion, a life syle, a partnership.
