There are passions and then there are passions but in order to follow your passion you need to ensure that you obtain the right skills and experience to do so. For some of us, the passion is being able to ride a horse and for those of you living in Bolton houses, you need to ensure that if you want to be a good rider you need to be close enough to horse stables.
Some would argue that having a passion may not necessarily mean that you need to follow it. You could have a passion for something just by simply following it through magazines, on TV, or through the Internet. A passion could simply be something such as working with crafts in your spare time or it could be something such as horses.
A person's passion for horses may be displayed through their horse collection. Another person's passion may be revealed through the many pictures of horses that they have on their walls in their home while others may show their passion for these handsome animals through their weekly visits to a horse stable for riding lessons.
Horses have been a part of history for as long as we can remember. In the good old days, Royalty rode them as part of their ceremonies and still do today. Knights and Lords used them as part of their transportation into battle and ladies rode them for sport. Much of this is still in tact today and if you were to ask any experienced agent, they would readily tell you that horse riding is very much a part of their sporting activities.
Every child deserves the opportunity to learn to ride a horse. Horses can be used for a number of functions; as service animals, in ceremonies or special occasions, and as animals for racing or hobby riding. Horses are gentle and intelligent and they continue to play an important part in our lives. They are strong and durable and extremely flexible.
Nothing is more exhilarating than being able to gallop through an open field on horseback with a cool fresh wind at your back and the warm sun shining down on you! An experience to die for and you should try it some day.
