Ask Karen Polle : Hey Karen! How was it to reconcile your rider life and being a Yale student? Best, Alex.

Hi Alex!

It was pretty challenging at times. I always felt like I didn't spend enough time practicing with my horses. Whenever I would come back from school to ride, even if it had only been a few days without riding, I would always feel really rusty. This was very frustrating but I'm really glad that I did both riding and Yale. Both are very important to me and it was definitely worth the hard work, lack of sleep, and frustration!

Thanks for your question!
