Non Rider and a Horse Enthusiast

Most people i meet have the same common question." So you have horses do you ride a lot? " my answer always the same " No i have ridden horses but my time spent with horses is on the ground learning all I can about a horses personality and physical aspects. One of the most exciting things for me is to meet a new horse. Every horse has it's own personality and I see so much in their eyes. The graceful beauty packed into a 1200 pound animal is utterly magnificent to me.

I've had such wonderful experiences with horses. From free lounging an arabian to leading my foal for the first time breeding of a mare to watching the birth of our palomino colt. Of course I've also experienced some bad with the good also. colic abscesses eye infections. But I wouldn't go back and change anything. The experience is priceless the whole idea of learning something new about a horse is priceless too the pure friendship of a horse is just unexplainable any bad day or bad mood for me can be solved by just a moment near a horse so you may not see me climbing in a saddle very often but I will undoubtedly be thinking and learning and absorbing everything Horse that is my peace :)

I would have to say each horse has taught me something individual and different. From a young horse to a senior horse and stallions studs mares to geldings. They each have something different to offer. I think the best lesson has came from my colt that I raised he has taught me patience so many times I would stress out because he wasn't calm enough or wasn't learning manners well or because he didn't want me to approach him to pet him.

My husband finally looked at me one day and said be patient with him and he will come around on his own of course I was in disagreement on that statement, but as my foal saw my patience he mirrored it and out of the blue he was calm and patient and would come running for attention the pure pleasure of allowing a horse to teach me is powerful for my soul.

Yes! Send me a full color horse trailer brochure from Featherlite.

Thanks! Your brochure will be on its way shortly.

    I don't ride much at all either so I really understand what you mean!! Being with horses offers so much to me even though I never ride. Great post gypsy farms!

    Since illness prevents me from riding I can truly relate to your blog. So few understand that there is so much more to be felt, learned or realized about horses than is obtained from the saddle. Ground work is perhaps the single most under valued training tool there is and the number of preventable accidents is unmeasurable.

      i agree....and i think people underestimate all we can learn teach and enjoy out of a saddle...i have enjoyed some memorable times riding horses but i suppose i just prefer to enjoy them while on the ground...
