Hey everyone! A while ago, I gave you a Q&A form to ask questions about anything related to horse riding. Today, I am sharing with you the answers to your questions with a short video. I tried to put my answers into writing, but then realized it would be much easier to answer them in a video. I want to say thank you for everyone who asked questions! I hope that this video answers your question and if at all you do not understand anything, shoot me an email by visiting my contact page. Enjoy the video!
Hey everyone! Welcome back to another blog post! This past weekend, I attended a jumping clinic taught by my trainer. Below is a pic of me jumping Kahari. The clinic was so much fun and I started to feel my love of jumping come back. Whether it is a ½ ft tall jump or a 3 ft tall jump, the thrill never goes away. While I attended the clinic, I learned many important basics of jumping. To be able to jump, you have to have the basics down pat. It’s basically like laying down a foundation for a house. Once you have the foundation, then you can start building. Today, I am sharing with you 3 tips that I learned at the jumping clinic. I hope that these tips will help the riders who are wanting to begin jumping classes, but also a reminder to those riders who have been jumping for a while. Enjoy the tips!

Dear Younger Me,
So, you’ve decided to start horseback riding, have you? Well, let me start off by saying it’s not going to be easy. But I guess I shouldn’t start off negative, right?
Horse riding is very rewarding and enjoyable. There’s nothing more amazing and life changing than getting on the back of a 1,000 pound animal. I am a true believer that horses are the best secret keepers EVER! They will never ever tell 😊 Personally, I do believe that it is a sport. I mean, it is in the Olympics. But horse riding isn’t only a sport where you compete, but it is so much more than that. It is a commitment and a character building experience. It builds strength, perseverance, and a will to never, EVER give up.
Summer has arrived… well kind of… I mean with thunderstorm warnings and rain where I live, it doesn’t make for a “fun in the sun” kind of day. Technically, however, summer here began on June 20, so I thought I would give all those summer lovers a guide to thriving this summer as a horseback rider. I don’t know about any of you, but I love to ride outside. Sometimes though it does get really warm. So today, I am sharing with you 10 tips I feel will help to stay cool in the summer. We want to enjoy riding in the summer instead of feeling like we are going to melt from heat exhaustion (I am sure you all have been there). I hope that you enjoy this list of tips and most of all find them super helpful!
