Top Twenty Reasons To Ride A Horse

Top Twenty Reasons to Ride a Horse, as opposed to a dinosaur, flying saucer, or tap dancing polar bear.

1. Hooves make that awesome clip-clopping sound.

2. Stepping on your enemies’ toes becomes far more effective with the additional 500kg.

3. Horses are known to be fluffy.

4. Instant unicorn - just add horn.

5. No more motion sickness.

6. Distance between horse and ground aids in the avoidance of stubbed toes.

7. You can pretend to be a knight, but only if you have a white horse.

8. Jods make your butt look good.

9. Horses come with built in lawn mowers and fertilizers.

10. Excuse to buy a ridiculous amount of industrial size bubble wrap.

11. Free hugs.

12. Horses are more comfortable than camels.

13. Horses are also more comfortable than cows, elephants, ostriches, and those weird old fashioned bicycles.

14. According to science, no horse has ever experienced a flat tire.

15. Petrol is rapidly becoming more expensive than horse food.

16. When you fart, you have someone to blame it on.

17. When you blame your fart on a horse, they’re unlikely to get angry and beat you up.

18. If your horse does get angry about being blamed for your fart, he’ll forgive you for the cost of one juicy carrot.

19. Unlike their riders, horses don’t tend to be stinky, unless farted on.

20. A horse will almost never succumb to toilet humour.

I've really wanted to bring my horse into my back yard and tell the neighbours I've bought a riding lawn mower.

I wish I could say ‘time heals’, but it doesn’t. I still miss him every day. I still cry every time I look at his photos. Some days I’ll wake up and simply can’t face a world without him in it. I can’t leave my bed, because, what’ ...

I screamed. I started gasping ‘what’s happening’, and automatically untangled his legs from the rope boundary of the cooldown where he’d collapsed. People started rushing over while I just kept hysterically repeating ‘what’s happe ...

We loved our perfect Moo. The thought of losing him - it never even crossed our minds. It was one of those things too terrible to think that it might ever happen to you. One of those ‘I can’t even imagine what it would be like’ th ...

After the setback with Moo’s suspensory ligament, I pretty much decided that 2017 was going to be a write-off. Because we have so few events, because I’d been so cautious in protecting both Moo’s confidence and my own, the idea of ...

After Moo’s tie back, I was in my final year at university, and we hadn’t had lessons in a while. I played with him a lot while he was recovering. The place we were stabling at the time didn’t have a proper arena, so we would do o ...

At the beginning of 2013, following his injury at champs, I began to bring Moo back into work. Physically, he seemed fine, but suddenly his behaviour was worse than it had ever been. He was perfectly sound, but if I put on any pre ...

Moo’s tantrums were getting worse. He was scheduled to compete in his first graded event, but before that we had a clinic scheduled with an Olympic level eventer. I said to my instructor just before that I was worried about taking ...

As humans we love to look on the bright side, we love our silver linings and positive spins. We love to feel moved and inspired. Sorry, but I don’t have anything like that for you today. What I’m here to share with you isn’t grace ...
