Horse People

The horse industry is full of stories about interesting horse people from various disciplines, breeds, and styles of riding. Read their stories in Horse Illustrated and Young Rider magazines. See how others triumphed over a challenging riding or training situation, interesting feats riders have accomplished, and how others have overcome the odds for a big win at an equestrian competition. Learn how some have spent their lives helping horses and/or riders, either through rescues, therapeutic riding programs, or through charities that they are passionate about. Find inspiration and connection from the lives of other passionate horse people, including horse owners, riders, and those who love horses.
