As riders, communication is key to developing a strong and trustworthy relationship with your horse. Communication is the connection between two or more people or animals. Horses have two main ways of communicating with their riders: vocal sounds and body language. Horses use communication to tell us how they are feeling. They communicate to us if they are angry, annoyed, happy, or even relaxed. The amazing thing about horses is that they are professionals at communicating. When they were young, they had to communicate to their mothers to tell them they were hungry, horses that live in the wild communicate with the herd to notify other horses of danger or prey, horses have the ability to communicate in small and even large ways and they can communicate by moving their ears or even by responding in flight.
A couple of days ago, I had a lesson with my trainer and let me tell you it was hard! I mean, it was definitely a rewarding lesson, but it was hard! Thanks Gary:-) I felt like putting my lesson into a blog post, because I learned something VERY important. I believe that once every horse rider accomplishes this, they will become an even better rider! So this is what I learned the night of my lesson…
Happpppy Monday everyone! Today, I am giving you my current top 5 favorite equestrian blogs and an extra bonus blog (because I have more than 5 haha). These blogs are all fantastic and definitely have given me insights into both riding and blogging. All of these bloggers have big followings and definitely know what they are doing! Some of them are horse trainers and some of them are equestrian fashion bloggers (which I LOVE)! I hope that you enjoy this post and maybe you will discover some new blogs that you haven’t visited before!
Yet another Throwback Thursday makes me realize how many fantastic experiences I have been blessed with over the years. I mean, when blessed with so many people that have shaped me as a rider is something I can feel proud of today. For example, the barn I am at now has influenced me in ways I never thought were possible. I have improved and progressed in ways I never thought I could. But most of all it changed my view on finding the RIGHT barn. The barn that will support you every step of the way. It changed my view to ask myself: What even is the RIGHT barn? That leads me to the story I am about to tell you all today. The story of when I found my RIGHT barn.
