Happy International Women’s Day to all of you kick-butt equestrian ladies out there! We tip our helmet to you for going out there and pursuing your dreams. The beauty behind equestrian sports as a whole is that men and women get to compete on the same field, side-by-side as equals. So take a moment to cheer on your fellow lady riders today.

In addition to that moving tribute, the FEI also shared this video featuring the FEI Against All Odds award winner, Leila Malki from Palestine. Leila is a true example of women overcoming cultural stigmas to pursue their dreams and we think she is pretty darn cool.

Celebrate yourself today, ladies, and remember that there is no wrong way to be a woman!

Go Eventing.
