JN has welcomed an intern to our team for the summer! In her introductory post, Taylor Clark shares her revelations after returning to the saddle following a brief hiatus. At some point in most lives, one must take a break from riding horses. This is never a simple decision. It is easy to forget the early mornings, the falls and broken bones, and the endless barn drama.
The Problem of the Overhorsed Adult Amateur
USEF Saddle Seat Adult Amateur Medal | US Equestrian
If you have a different question please contact us. The term adult amateur applies primarily for competition purposes and is defined within the rules of the US Equestrian USEF that provides the body of rules by which dressage is governed. We encourage all of our members to attend at least the A, B and C Part1 sessions; the educational content is superb. We encourage you to participate, audit or be a demo rider in the workshops. All the education is available to you! Adult amateurs can attend and apply to be a demo rider at Trainers Conference. This is an FEI level concentrated program with attendance criteria and adult amateurs who meet these criteria may attend.
Adult Amateur Hunter 36-over
I spent five years traveling the country giving mounted sport-psychology clinics called "Riding With Confidence" and I still work with riders individually every day from all disciplines and ages, so I feel I have a pretty good range of exposure to our equestrian culture. While writing this piece is risky for me, I feel that not bringing this up is only out of fear of people disagreeing with me or not liking me. But since I am committed to more than that, here goes. Disagreement creates strong feelings on both sides of any issue, which makes tackling issues that elicit disagreement or even controversy challenging and even avoided these days. Discourse is a necessary element, meaning that having difficult and uncomfortable conversations with the commitment to getting to the other side while at the same time having compassion and seeking understanding of the other side is the solution.
