“All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.”
– author unknown
It seems to be some kind of a trend among teenage girls to make this kind of videos of their horses. Youtube is full of them!
What is very touching in these, is the love these girls have for their horses and what they want to show to the world: “This is my horse, and she/he is the best horse in the whole wide world!”
Equestrianism is all about great feelings and experiences. Often they are the very first horses we get to spend time with that leave the most permanent hoofprints in our hearts. These girls are also assumably the main group of future horse owners and breeders. I think it’s a great thing to have finnhorses in riding schools and elsewhere in the “grass root level” of horse scheme, offering people a chance to get in touch with them. That is the ground where future horse people grow from. For many it is the late family horse or riding school favourite who gave them the spark for future (finn)horse enthusiasm.
Never underestimate a girl’s love for her horse!
