Parents, let your daughters grow up to be horse girls

because they will learn quickly and repeatedly that life isn't fair, hard work is often trumped by lady luck, and that every defeat-- no matter how terrible-- is temporary.

Let them dream big, and kick on. Let them learn confidence, grace, and grit. Let them build big muscles and strong backs, and learn that a little blood & a little sweat are good things. Because they show you you're living.

Let them grow up with horses, and good horse people, because it will teach them to be humble, and to be resilient, and to be brave."
