My kids are making a living as horse trainers…and giving riding lessons!

At least in this iPod app, My Horse. I have to admit that I am impressed with a couple of things. First, that this app shows up in the top 25 of free apps, second that it has over 18,000 reviews. Have you played this app?

Does this mean that even in this digital world there is still a love for horses? With my discovery of this app, the recent movie War Horse and the demand for riding lessons in my area with a shortage of instructors I think the horse industry is alive and well.

    My brothers play that game on the iPad! War horse is an excellent movie, but I cried the almost the entire time 🙂

    Hi Stacy,

    I am single but I have a nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, lead a 4H group and homeschool 2 of my friends’ children. I also live in northern NY an hour from the Canadian border (remember your friends in the northeast uncowboy country?). They love riding and training their horses. My niece Charity, at the age of 11, trained one of our farrier’s horses to ride. He gave her another registered Quarter horse as payment. The farrier was really happy with the job she did and Charity loves the horse she got for payment. My nephew Andrew (14 years old) broke and trained a horse for a local man who gave him a very nice palomino for payment. Andrew says he wouldn’t take a million dollars for his palomino so you can see that was quite the payment! It makes me nervous hauling a million dollar horse around in my trailer! Their brother Seth is a trainer too and has worked with Thoroughbreds that race at Saratoga. These are just some examples of the child trainers that I am accustomed to.

    When these children saw you do your bareback and bridleless ride on YouTube they were amazed. You have inspired them to higher goals ever since. What makes you even more special is that you have accepted Jesus as your Saviour and your Christian testimony stands out to all the horse world just as Jesus would want. Even though we don’t know you on a personal level, we are glad to call you our sister in the Lord!

    Don’t forget your fans in the northeast!!

    Ruth (better known as Aunt Ruth in these parts)

    The horse industry is indeed alive and well! There are even online simulation games that are for the horse enthusiast, as well. 🙂 I have played that game “MyHorse” and do enjoy it as well.
