You Know You’re an Adult Amateur When You’ve Thought At Least One of These At Some Point in Time.

On Horse Ownership

Wouldn’t one more be so fun?

Picture

Yay best friends!

On second thought, one is fine.

Picture

Please stop hurting yourself.

I wonder if my vet thinks I’m crazy.

Picture

Um, I think something may really be wrong this time. Could you come out to the farm?

Is that horse or dog hair? Does it matter?

Picture

Obviously misplaced my lint roller.

Look at all the bills I have!

Picture

My credit card is on fire.

On Riding

Is this spot too long?

Picture

Jesus take the wheel.

That was way too long. At least I stayed on.

Picture

Gold Cup here I come!

Wait, where am I going?

Picture

Rollback to the oxer? Or is it the quarter line? HALP.

I wonder what my trainer is really thinking.

Picture

Do I really want to know? No, probably not.

When your horse comes out super fresh.

Picture

Why have you betrayed me?!

Being scared to look at your phone and see how many work calls & emails you’ve missed during your lesson.

Picture

*Slowly buries head in hands*

Daydreaming about riding with your husband/wife/boyfriend/girlfriend like

Picture

BUT IT WOULD BE SO PERFECT.

On Showing

I’m SO excited to show this weekend!

Picture

It’s going to be SO much fun!

Oh, here comes the anxiety train.

Picture

Do I really want to do this? What if I ride terribly? What if I fall off? Is it worth it?

Be confident. BE confident. BE CONFIDENT!

Picture

Just remember to BREATHE.

After nearly throwing up in the warmup but scoring a 90 in your classic round.

Picture

What, like it’s hard?

Placing in all of your classes & feeling like you and your horse have a unique, unbreakable bond.

Picture

Nothing can stop us! We can do ANYTHING!

Writing checks for entry fees, stall splits & the braider then anxiously calculating the total in your head.

Picture

Please don’t overdraft, please don’t overdraft.

Did I really just pay that much for one day of showing?

Picture

Ramen for dinner this month!

Yes, but look how far we’ve come!

Picture

Best horse & rider team of life.

Ok, I’m totally ready to go home now. I’m tired of almost getting run over by golf carts and tripping over small dogs.

Picture

Slow down you animals!

There’s nothing quite like finding your heart horse.
