The Wish of The True Equestrian


Only equestrians can possibly understand,

the impossibly forgiving light,

that the eye of a horse suggests.

However, only equestrians can understand,

that when it comes to ribbons and winning,

there is still something that is so much more important.

Being able to communicate fluidly,

with a half-ton animal,

is just as thrilling as bringing home the blue.

The goals are set,

and the accomplishments met.

But, at the end of the day,

it's the true partnership and unbreakable bond,

that we are able to build with our horses.

It's not like other sports.

At the end of the day we have a partner,

that truly understand us,

and trusts and depends on us to give them what they need.

In return, we get the pleasure

of experiences an unbelieveable friendship that will last into eternity.

All that I could ever want,

Is the wish of the true equestrian:

 the unique bond and lifestyle,

that comes with riding a horse.
