The Equestrian Sport: Showing

with one comment

For my beat this semester, I will be taking a close look at what goes into horse showing for hard-working equestrians. While there are many different disciplines of riding, I will focus on the hunters and equitation, two similar types of riding within the English riding style. Showing involves many emotional, financial, and time sacrifices and commitments, and I think the audience would find it interesting to learn more about the so-called “elite” sport, and how many afford to keep up with their passion. I hope to bring light to the amount of time and work it takes to prepare for a horse show, what exactly creates a successful show horse, and how riders operate under the pressures of the horse show world, as well as several other interesting angles.

Hey 258!

with one comment

Hey everyone. I’m Brittani and I’m going into my senior year here at Towson. I’m in the Mass Comm major with a track in Advertising and a track in Journalism & New Media. I transferred here from Clemson so I’m taking 258 during the summer to get a caught up and hopefully graduate on time (Spring 2011). I’m from Southern Maryland and in my spare time I’m usually working with or riding my horses, taking pictures (I hope to be a photographer one day…my photography blog is linked on this blog), spending time with family and my boyfriend, enjoying the Patuxent River, or as is the case this summer…taking classes. In 258, I hope to expand on what I learned in 257 and become better at interviewing people.

My younger brother and I, January 2010.
