Equestrian camps, where dancers train for competitions, have become a fixture of the U.S. equestriencian circuit, with many participating in national competitions.
It’s not just a sport for athletes, however.
The sport has become a way to connect people who might not otherwise get along.
Equestrians often share stories about how they came to love the sport, and what it means to their families.
Here are some of their stories.
A few years ago, the mother of a 10-year-old girl from Chicago decided to start a equestriemedia, equestrainers.com, to educate and inspire the next generation.
She’s worked hard to do so, including making a new website to document her daughter’s achievements and to showcase the amazing feats she has achieved.
“I love equestry and the work that it does,” she said.
“It’s a beautiful thing to watch a girl become stronger, stronger and stronger and I just think it’s important that people have a better understanding of what it’s like to be an athlete.”
When she first started writing the website, she wrote the word “wannabe” in capital letters because it felt so right to write about the sport.
Now, she’s had to make a lot of revisions and revisions to her story, but she still hopes it’ll help inspire other parents to love their daughters.
“The more we learn about what it is to be equestrialist and what equestrieans are about, the better off we’ll all be,” she told Mashable.
