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
- There’s more out there than a western/cowboy saddle. In fact, there’s one saddle for each day of a three-day event.
- I’ve learned many different types of jumps, and how to build them.
- You can never have too big of a tack room in a trailer…and you always need a bigger trailer.
- 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.
- Buy a motor bike. Saves you from walking cross-country courses, and makes trips to the food stand much faster.
