They say you can’t choose your family but you can choose your friends. But when friends turn into family, have you choosen your family in a round about way?
I’ve been at the same barn for 3ish – potenially almost 4 years now and I honestly couldn’t be happier. I have made some really good friends at the barn. I have seen people come and go but at the end of the day I think we should all be proud and happy that we have such a amazing facility to go to.
We recently had our Halloween training show at the barn and the support was unreal. From the high-fives, to the amazing cheering squad (I’m looking at you Katie & Emily), to the congratulations and pats in the backs.
The show made my brain wheels do some turning and just made me take a step back and realize we seriously do have each other’s best interest. From all the lows to all the highs. From the big girl hunters playing in the shorties, the encouragement and support is the BEST.
When you are apart of a barn, show squad, or just in any team atmosphere you are repressing yourself, the team and the facility that you come from. I personally think we should all take pride in how supportive we are of each other and how we are there for each other; from our personal lives, to the last minute pep talks before entering the show ring.
You fight like sisters but at the end of the day you have each other’s backs. We should all be FREAKING PROUD that we have this amazing chance to do something we love with the best barn squad EVER.
So go give your horses some treats & thank your coach for dealing with you in your high and low moments!
