And submit something nice about someone. You never know what they’re going through and sometimes a simple post makes more of a difference than we would ever know. Life is too short to be anything but nice.
To all the riders who use riding to get away from it all, you are amazing. Your horse/your lease/your schooling horse, or whatever you ride loves you and I’m sure if you ever need to vent, there is someone who is willing to listen. This isn’t just a sport, it’s our love. It’s our passion.
To every Equestrian who’s ever been told they’re too big, thin, tall, short, or anything body image negative. It’s all someone’s made up idea of what is “right” anyway so do what you love, ride your horse, and know you deserve people in your life who support you and don’t try to knock you down.
This is for all the equestrians who are looked down upon because of their horse. “You can have the best bred and most expensive horse, but that’s not how it works. It works by which horse has the most heart.” I wrote that but it’s true and always remember it. Oh, and I love you <3
dressagexstrong is one of the most beautiful people I have met on Tumblr and one of my biggest hopes is for her to realize how wonderful and beautiful she is because she deserves the highest level of happiness.
thecityhorse is doing such a great job with Darwin. I think that all of tumblr equestrians were heartbroken to hear about Airy passing, and I think everyone is equally as happy that she has found a horse like Darwin.
I’ve ridden western my entire life, and I just want to say that I have so much respect for English riders. I’d be lost without my saddle horn! The fact that English riders can sit a buck, jump a fence, and the kind of obstacles they face in cross country…it amazes me!
TheCityHorse is an exceptionally passionate person who will fight injustice, and false truths, to the death. She does so with integrity, facts, and a desire to help and educate. I look forward to her debates because I always learn something. Her Darwin is also completely adorable.
Recently, I’ve seen a positive change in how equestrians treat each other. I think we’ve all become more mature and accepting of each other’s horses and disciplines! I’m really proud of the Tumblr Equestrian community (:
ilovemyponydolly is receiving a lot of anon hate and I want to take this time to tell her, and everyone else that she is so strong and so beautiful and that everyone sending her these lovely messages are truly trying to help out a fellow blogger and that we would truly be devastated if we were to lose her.
thecityhorse inspires me to be a better equestrian. Her commitment to the well being of her horses and not compromise her beliefs are definitely qualities we need in this community. Plus, Darwin’s a cutie.
As much as the equestrian community frustrates me on Tumblr, I have met some really awesome people who, just like everyone else in this community (even those who are extreme), love horses and that in itself should be respected.
diaryofaworkingstudent is one of my favorite blogs. She is so sweet and kind to everyone, and has more knowledge about horses than anyone I have ever met, even some of my trainers. I know one day she will make it and be something incredible in this horse world.
