Alivia Hart opens up about the challenges of being a student and rider in her guest blog post "Balancing Act: Riding and School". "School is a lot like horse showing. You set a goal, you work hard and prepare yourself and then you take the hard work and put it to the test. As soon as I worked in school like I worked with my horses, I found that not only was it easier, but I also felt more motivated to learn and succeed in school."
Junior rider Ally Worthington shares how her passion for the sport evolved after a chance clinic with Bernie when she was 10 and the challenges of balancing school, family and the competitive atmosphere of the country’s most prestigious shows.
