Lately, I've heard a lot about girls owning horses and to be an equestrian you have to own a horse. The truth is 1 out of every 10 girls own horses.
I know a lot of people at my barn and only 3 of the 20 I know actually own horses but the remaining 17 love them just as much as the 3 who own them.
My point is, you don't have to own a horse to be a horse girl.
I ride every other week helping at the barn afterwards and I am enrolled in a youth horse program which we do riding clinics once a month with ranging disciplines and events along with a program called horse bowl which is basically like jeopardy but its all horses.
I don't get a lot of time with them but I still love them more than anything in the entire world. I surround myself with horses in every way.
My room is completely horse-themed, full of horse books, magazines, posters, photos and little horse trinkets and knick-knacks.
I read horse books, write stories and poems about them, draw them, watch horse videos and look at pictures and quotes.
I watch movies like Flicka and Secretariat. I daydream about them during the day and dream of them at night.
Don't let anyone tell you that you have to own a horse to be a horse girl!
Heartbeat for horses & yours truly Ima Classy Star (Peppy)
