I’m coming back to riding after a fifteen year hiatus, and a severe back injury.
When I was young, I rode all the time, but my lessons were not particularly structured, nor did I ever show. I have always regretted this, but I was a child and my mom got to pick my barn, my instructor, etcetera.
Fast-forward to today, and I have found an adorable barn with decent school horses and friendly people. I’m taking lessons once a week, and I am back to being obsessed with horses. Glory be!
The thing is, I now have the chance to be the rider I always wanted to be. This is not me having delusions of grandeur. I’m just speaking of good old-fashioned hard work, truly learning how to connect with a horse, and hopefully leasing or owning in the future. (Okay, yes, I would like to do some adult amateur showing.)
My question to you, my dear horsey community, is what are your:
- Favorite books about riding
- Videos/vloggers you watch
- Favorite riders
- Rerider advice/support
And, of course, any other insight at all! Thank you & happy riding!
