Many girls in the world are wishing to have a horse, or even take lessons. Do you know anyone that loves horses as much as you do? But they’ve never taken a lesson or been around horses as much as you? Make their day. YOU need to be the perfect example for them. Don’t know where to start? Read on…

Do you take lessons? Own a horse? If so, invite your friend to the stables where you board your horse or take lessons. Teach your friend how to groom a horse. You don’t need to be fancy, and definitely don’t show off. Let your friend know the basics. It would make them so happy!

For those who take lessons, invite your friend and their parents over to the stable. Let them meet your riding instructor, walk around the environment, and be introduced to the lesson horses. This is a great step to making your friend feel a bit more comfortable around horses. Who knows? Maybe they will even take lessons where you do!

Try asking your friend if she’d like to watch you at a riding lesson. She could see how things are done, and be a little ahead if she starts doing lessons as well. It’s fun for them to watch their friend riding a horse, so they won’t be bored.

Don’t own a horse? Don’t take lessons? Then just wait. If a friend of yours rides horses, YOU can make the step. Ask if they would be willing to take you to one of their lessons, or tour the stables. It’s simple!

There is SO many other ways to do this. These are only a few suggestions. If none of these work out for you, try your own!

Hope everything works out. Comment to let me know if you tried your own, and how it worked!

  1. OMG, I was just about to take two of my bff’s to the barn! Great blog mustang23!

  2. Sorry, I mean mustangmane!!

  3. Thanks for the advice! :)

  4. Wish I had someone who loved horses as much as I do. One of my friends likes horses but I don’t think it is the same…obsession. My other friend…she’s SO lucky! She’s rather have a Panda bear than a horse and yet she got to go to a horse summer came and learn to jump a horse and care for it! I can’t believe her luck! And she complained that she didn’t have a good horse either! She wanted one she thought was prettier. ALL horses are amazingly pretty.

  5. Good advice, mustangmane! I take lessons, but I have a few friends who aren’t as lucky as I am. I’ll have to take them with me soon.

  6. its all right, Peanut. I actually think sometimes I’ve posted when it was mustangmane. lol!

  7. Great blog! One of my friends use to be a horse lover, then she came to my barn to watch me, soon after that, she became a horse hater.

  8. Really great mustangmane, it’s really fun spreading the horse world around sometimes. Good blog!
