Let's Hear It For Moms! - Full Article

Readers share stories about how their moms helped to shape their horsey lives.

May 11, 2014

Some moms are avid equestrians who introduced their kids to the joy of horses. Others prefer to keep their feet on the ground and support their children's riding career from the sidelines. In celebration of Mother's Day, we asked our Facebook community to tell us how their moms helped shape their horsey lives. Here are some of the responses we received....

My mom started riding western after I had already been at an English barn for a few years. She absolutely fell in love with horses and with the culture. She only got to ride for a year before she passed away. Her dream was to own a horse of her own. I know that she would have cared for her horse with the same incredible love and support that she always gave to me.

Although she herself was never a horsewoman, my mom supported me 100% from the beginning - whether that meant getting up at 3:00 AM before a show, holding my horses and/or grooming them, or just being there for me. I am so thankful to have her as my mother.
