Just A Country Girl

Please please please please understand and give horses and riders the right of way while driving. We have the same right to be on the road as you do in your car. Do not get impatient and try and speed around a horse. Most riders will be more than happy to move over for you when we see you.
Shit like this is so damn preventable. Just don’t be an asshole.

Riding makes us better people. It challenges us to perform, to be patient, to be persistent. It’s a journey, & that’s why we love it so much.

On Day 4 of the U.S. Equestrian Federation’s 2011 George H. Morris Horsemastership Training Session participants heard the words that every rider hates: “Drop those stirrups!”

This pretty much goes without saying, but GEORGE MORRIS. He’s a freaking legend, and if I ever, ever, EVER got a chance to ride with him, I’m freaking taking it.

A bold rider is a good rider. Beezie Madden. Whatever problem confronts her, she doesn’t have temper, she doesn’t have excitement, but she practices boldness. Leslie Burr Howard, at the Lake Placid show before the Atlanta Olympics—it was raining, and she was in the preliminary jumper division. It was a few months before the Olympics and I said “Leslie, what are you doing riding that horse? It’s raining, it’s muddy, it’s up and down that Lake Placid hill.” She said, “George, I’m practicing my guts.” Yes, Leslie was practicing her guts. I admire her practicing her guts because we have to practice guts. I always had to practice guts. I used to go with him (Frank Chapo) in the back of the bleachers in Wiesbaden, Germany, and I said, “Frank, I can’t do this. I can’t jump those jumps.” He said, “George, you got good horses, we’re over here. You’ve got to do it.” I always had to practice guts.
