What do you like the most in competition?
Absolutely the bond with my horse, our silent conversation, the sensation of flying over the obstacles together too!
I do & I don't. I like it because it taught me how to manage stress, it's fun to spend the day showing with my friends, it's exhilarating, it's a great way to measure my progress, etc. On the other hand, show culture isn't really my thing. Where I live, it's extremely catty, petty, and cutthroat. I ride & compete because I enjoy it, but I called it quits when the threats started.
I do! Competition is part of my life since years, I couldn't live without it In eventing, there are so many feelings and the arenaline is at its maximum!
I do but unfortunately I do not compete as much as I would like to! I agree with Amy, it's a lot of stress for me but as I got along the competitions, I noticed I can better handle my stress than better!
Strangely I don't really like competition! I do some easy courses sometimes but competitions are a big source of stress to me! I guess I'm afraid to fail
I also do! For the moment I only do a few competitions in my equestrian center or in the centers near my house. It is true it train us to handle our stress. Competition makes me wanna do my best!
I do!! I compete since I started riding. It is a way to give the best of yourself, to go over your fears, to outdo yourself, to learn how to handle your stress and to measure yourself to the other riders.
