9 Reasons Being A Horseback Rider Is The Best Thing In The World

9 Reasons Being A Horseback Rider Is The Best Thing In The World

I'm a rider, and there is nothing you can do about it.

Heidi Mae Brown

Horse riding has always been something on my dad's side of the family. I do not take riding for granted. I love riding. It comes naturally to me. My family history is huge in horse riding. Here are 10 reasons why I am a horseback rider.

1. Horses are our escape

When you're riding on a horse, all of your fears, anger and stress go away.

2. Horses are lifesavers from your boys.

If you ever get a guy and they do not treat you right, go back to your horse, they cant hurt you. OR when a man says he doesn't like horses...boy...bye. If you're a man, you better appreciate your woman being a horse rider...damn it.

3. Riding comes naturally.

Riding for anyone can come naturally or it takes practice. For me, it came to me naturally! I have always loved riding and still love riding to this day.

And I'm not sorry...

I wouldn't leave the barn...

4. Riding can be for traveling

I know you are thinking of the Amish, but most people use their horses to get around, maybe even down the road. Amish people aren't the only ones with horse-drawn travels.

5. Barrel Racing

Barrel racing is one of those things where you can just be happy because your horse knows just what to do. However, you are in charge still! Barrel racing is one of those things where you can be in the horse shows and be on TV.

6. Horse show on TV.

Every year on Thanksgiving, there's always a horse show on television! I watch it every year! If you're a rider, you know what I'm talking about!

7. Any song about horses

Now, I couldn't leave you here with all of these reasons without songs...right? Well, here are the best songs about horses:

Reba- Just Like Them Horses.

Brooks and Dunn- Cowgirls Don't Cry

Garth Brooks- Wild Horses

George Strait- Cowboy Rides Away

George Strait- Troubadour

George Strait- Cowboys Like Us

Toby Keith- Beer For My Horses

Big& Rich- Save A Horse.

Taylor Swift- White Horse.

8. History in the family

As you noticed in the photo of me riding and the picture above of my cousin, It runs in my family.

Everyone on my dad's side is a horse rider. I guess it comes naturally. It's in the blood.

9. Just keep on riding.

Horses can be anyone's best friend. Enough said.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

Morgan Wooten

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.
