Four young riders share exciting summer stories from the hunter/jumper circuit.

by Pam Maley, Lexie Looker & Alexis Meadows

What did you do over the summer?” is a question circulating through school halls this month and one that typically conjures visions of family vacations, swimming pools, picnics, lazy days and summer camps.

But for young equestrians, the vision is quite different. Summer is when the horse show scene kicks into high gear. With the absence of school, devoted competitors are at the barn or at the show, often moving from one show series to the next. Countless summer days begin before the sun comes up and end as it goes down, spending hours on the back of a horse or hanging with horse show friends.

We asked four dedicated young riders who are often seen on the showgrounds to share their perspectives on how they spent their horse-filled summer.

Producing therapeutic benefits through teaching horsemanship.

article provided by BWC2

When veterans call Because We Can – Because We Care, one of the first questions asked is, “Are you a therapy provider? We take pride in saying “no” to that question.

Veterans have told us they don’t like to be followed around or studied. They say it makes them feel like another number or lab rat. We are not therapists, nor do we claim to be. We also don’t believe in shoving “happy, happy, joy, joy” in their faces and sending them on their way. Why put a Band-Aid on something that requires surgery?
