But what exactly IS a "recreational horse owner"?
The traditional horse industry has long looked down upon the recreational horse owner. But I adore this population and I LOVE supporting recreational horse owners. Growth in the recreational horse owning population means there will soon be a reduced demand for young sport horses (a primary motivator behind excessive breeding practices). It also means far fewer horses will end up in kill pens and neglect situations as they age and/or become unsound for riding.
The shift toward more recreational horse ownership is also creating a huge unmet demand for non-traditional supportive services in the equine industry. Traditional training methods, boarding facilities and lesson programs were designed with aspiring sport-horses/riders/professionals in mind. We're entering a new age. Many of today's horse owners are discovering that previously sought-after facilities, methods and programs simply aren’t a good fit (financially or logistically) for the family/companion horse, or owner.
I'm passionate about addressing this growing disconnect between the expectations and desires of recreational horse owners and the professional services being offered by a (still largely) sport-horse focused industry.
