Riding Instructors are the gatekeepers to good horsemanship. Good riding instructors mean better riders and also better care and training for horses. And when you get down to it, I love horses.
And I like to share with others the things I have had the good fortune to learn.
I started The Riding Instructor 10 years ago. It’s gone through a lot of transformations and some harrowing crashes that discouraged me and I wanted to give up. But then someone tells me a post helped them and I’m ready to go again.
You Are Amazing
The RI readers have amazed me by sending RI blog posts all over the world. I was thrilled the first time I saw that a post had been viewed 30,000 times and then 70,000! And now RI has posts that have been viewed more than 217,000 times. One post! Be still my heart!
One day last summer the Riding Instructor received over 40,000 views—in one day. I can’t tell you how that blows my mind. I am so excited that The Riding Instructor is helping people.
Like anything with value, writing post for the Riding Instructor and keeping the site up, takes a lot of work. Hours of work. And it takes money, but then is there anything connected with horses that doesn’t require money?
