You may have seen the shorter version of this online: Wake Up. Kick Ass. Repeat. We came across this quote and decided to customize it to reflect what it means to #live20x60.
Why dress well? Our sport is built on tradition and respect. As an equestrian, dressing well shows respect for your trainer, your horse, the judge, and the sport itself. It also boosts your confidence. You want your horse to feel good and be confident in his tack and gear, why shouldn't you? The key is to dress well and appropriately. Style is about function too. Think about what you're dressing for and wear pieces made for it.
Ride. Well this is a given. Time in the saddle is so important for riders. It's when we can just focus on our sport and our partnership with our horse.
Be Kind. Yes, we want you to kick ass, but be kind about it! Be powerful, be strong, be successful, but don't do it at the expense of others. Use your kick ass powers for good! Pay it forward, encourage another rider and wish her a great ride, volunteer for or support a horse charity or therapeutic riding center, and do what you can to help others on your way to the top instead of knocking them down.
