Horse jumping is one of the most exiting of all equine sports and one of the few of being an Olympic event. The horse and rider must be an equally talented athlete in order to compete in the highest levels of this sport. There are many excellent horse trainers who know how to get the best out of the horse and rider. For anyone that wants to compete in jumping competitions finding a great trainer is just as important as finding a great horse. Not everyone will have the natural talent it takes to clear the highest jumps. It is important to remember that horse jumping is a serious sport and that not all horses and riders are suited for the sport. Horse riders or non-horse riders like the thrill of this top level competition by horses and riders from all around the world. Many of the most competitive and successful jumping horses are warm bloods from the European heritage, as they have both the height and legginess to clear the tallest jumps and the bravery to go boldly over each jump. Show jumping is a career and a full-time job as you travel around the world, but it can be a lot of fun. Today the world of show jumping is for show, except for the occasional fox hunt. Show jumping is clearly for competition or just for the fun of it. (:

The slaughter of horses has been an issue for many years in the court systems. The law about horse slaughter has been brought up in the senate and congress many times but dies down before a vote can be reached. I believe the slaughter of horses in the United States and the transportation of horses out of the United States intended for slaughter should be illegal. Many say the horses that are not able to be used are the ones who are sent to slaughter. Also wild horses are the ones that are sent…
Lucy walked briskly to her schooling horse , Izabeau, her arms full with her riding equipment. A soft nicker was heard over the other horses’ munching sounds. “ Hi, there gorgeous,” she called to the horse “ ready to fly ?” The horse stamped eagerly. She let herself into the stall, and was ready to go when she was startled by a fellow rider , Matt , of whom she was particularly fond of.
“Y-you s-scared me !” she stammered. “Sorry” he muttered. “ Janet is waiting for you, and the others are…

The first main risk that exist between participants and their horses should be environmental risk, because this is the first time for the riders and their horses to move to a new place. The new place means different climate, humidity, culture, time zone and diet. These differences impact on riders and their horses very much.

use? Which events will you participate in? It is unlikely that someone can jump on the back of a horse and instantly know which events will be the most beneficial for them. In economics, preferences are the driving force behind the choices that we make, and therefore is the driving force behind economics as a whole. In horseback riding, these preferences are what makes each event unique. The breed of horse that you have, the style of riding that you use, and even your fears will lead you to choose a…
ANALYSIS/ ORIGINALITY/ ALTERNATIVE INTERPRETATIONS: This is also an extended metaphor about a horse, ‘spur’, ‘prick’, ‘leaps’ and ‘falls’. This emphasises how Macbeth’s ambition itself may be a horse that can be uncontrollable and has a mind of its own. The horse may refers to Macbeth’s journey, the finish of which is at killing Duncan, and Macbeth’s conscience lies in the way of completing the journey. A horse can also be easily understood by the audience.
Ambition may also be pride, which is condemned…
in love with horses. I was going into first grade, and in those days my mom was signing me up for every summer camp imaginable to find something I enjoyed and to get me out of her hair. I went to volleyball, math camp, and the occasional week away at a church retreat, but my favorite was horse camp. I rode English style, which consists of riding my horse with the best posture possible and jumping over the jumps with as much elegance and poise as I could muster. After my week of ‘Horses 101’ (learning…
Divide each man into a thousand,
and there you will have an imaginary army.
Think, when we talk of horses, that you see them
Printing their proud hoofs i' th' receiving earth,
Imagine, when we talk of horses, that you see them
planting their proud hooves in the soft earth.
For ’tis your thoughts that now must deck our kings,
Carry them here and there, jumping o'er times,
Turning th' accomplishment of many years
Into an hour-glass;
Because now it is your thoughts that…
