Equestrians are a unique breed. We spend insane amounts of time, money, and energy making sure that 1000lbs+ flight animals don’t kill themselves all so we can ride them around and dote on them. If you’re not part of the indoctrinated, it seems pretty ludicrous.
I get it. And I also get that many of my non-equestrian friends don’t understand what it is we actually do when riding.
Nevertheless, the next schmuck who feels the need to tell me riding isn’t a sport is getting put on the youngest, most rank beast I can find and sent out for a likely-less-than-eight-second-spin. 🤯😂
