Many adult amateurs face myriad struggles while relearning the horse world after a break, be it two or ten years long. All of a sudden, the trendy clothing you used to ride in has become vintage. New helmets, saddles, show coats, and even belts become an obsession. Tasks that used to be easy (jump position!!) become the equivalent of running a marathon with no preparation. Horse showing becomes a dream that seems less and less attainable once you realize how much time off you will need from work, let alone the expense that you are now responsible for covering without parental help! As a child, little thought is put into braiding, hotel, stabling, and entry fees. Looking at the finances related to horse showing as an adult gives one a new respect for the show parents who silently bore the burden!
It would be easy to give up after the first or second lesson after a break and decide that the days of riding horses are no longer viable. But take a look at the changing role that riding has played in your life. Whether it fulfills a love of competition, a quest for camaraderie, or a moment of peace in nature, riding as a returning adult amateur after time off is possible. You may not reach the degree of success that you did in your junior years, or it may be more of a struggle to stay in shape between lessons, but the connection with horses never really dies.

Because my parents both enjoy music, I am very familiar with amateur musicians. I understand exactly how they think and approach their particular instruments. Of course, they want to execute a piece to the best of their technical ability, and they work hard every day to better their performances. They do not want to make mistakes and want to perform to the best of their skills. What is most important to them is the happiness they get from performing some of their favorite works, as well as the pleasure they get from sharing their love of music with a private audience or other music aficionados.
