Thoughts From a Horse Husband: 5 Things I’ve Learned

An eventer’s significant other recently shared a few things he’s learned from his horse-loving wife.  I thought the “better halves” of EN might appreciate these thoughts.

Thoughts From a Horse Husband: Five Things I’ve Learned

  1. There’s more out there than a western/cowboy saddle.  In fact, there’s one saddle for each day of a three-day event.
  2. I’ve learned many different types of jumps, and how to build them.
  3. You can never have too big of a tack room in a trailer…and you always need a bigger trailer.
  4. I know what it’s like to wake up and load horses on a trailer at 5am to get to a horse show and sit all day in the truck waiting for that four-minute dressage ride, then load up to go home by 6pm.
  5. Buy a motor bike.  Saves you from walking cross-country courses, and makes trips to the food stand much faster.
