Welcome! EB&B is all about helping beginner riders…
Okay, so we all know that horse people are a litttttle bit crazy.
I mean, I know I am! Absolutely no shame here.
Just look at Instagram, or Tiktok, or Pinterest and you’ll see hundreds of memes about horses eating your money, time and taking priority over significant others in your life. You’ll also see countless videos of horse crazy people doing questionable things.
If that sounds like you, come hang out with us on social media:
Initially I started EquestrianB&B to feel connected to horses at a time in my life when I wasn’t able to ride at all.
More recently, I’ve decided I really want to help beginner riders, especially people who love horses but for whatever reason haven’t gotten to ride as much as they’ve wanted in their lives so far. Maybe you grew up in a big city? Maybe money is a little tight? Maybe you have no way of consistently getting to the stables? Maybe you’re busy with school/work?
Whatever the reasons, your dreams of being a great horseback rider and having your own horses just keeps getting less and less likely as the years go on.
That was 100% me.
I was always “that horse-crazy girl”. When I was little, I was known by everyone as the girl with the imaginary unicorn named Luna. But my family and friends saw this as a “cute” trait rather than anything serious that should be pursued.
They thought I was likely to grow out of my horse obsession. I was pressured to go into a professional career path. Horseback riding lessons become too complicated and expensive living in the city. Getting a “proper education” was clearly much more important.
It took me years to realize that it’s never too complicated and expensive to do something that you love. When I was in my 3rd year of Engineering in Toronto, I started riding again and it was literally the best decision I ever made.
Was it expensive? YES!
Was it time-consuming? YES!
Was it 100% worth it? YES!
I did not want to become an Engineer and so my family pressured me to go into another “respectable field”. I ended up in medical school. At the time, I did not realize that my heart was not fully in it. In many ways, I loved medicine and still do. My passion lies in mental health (which is part of why I love horses and horseback riding – horses are like a living, breathing meditation app in my opinion). But I could not see myself working in a hospital or in a big city.
Throughout medical school, the prospect of a 5-year residency weighed me down. My increasing student debt gave me incessant anxiety. All I wanted to do was escape to the barn as often as I could (which was not often with my gruelling schedule).
Can you guess what happened?
I started having weird neurological symptoms. I would get dizzy, I stopped sleeping. Turns out I had epilepsy.
I finally decided enough was enough.
I moved to the country and I bought my first “forever” horse, Rudy. He was a 4 year old grey warmblood cross gelding. Now, I spend 4-5 days per week with him at the barn, I’m learning SO MUCH about horses and myself.
Following your heart SO much easier said than done and don’t I know it. Social pressure and financial pressure can be so extreme! It might be cheesy to say but I honestly believe that Rudy helped teach me to follow my heart. THAT is the power of horses.
If you’re still reading this, I want you to take this as a sign to start following your passion of riding again and taking it seriously.
