The Film Seabiscuit Is Inspiration To All Budding Riders

The blockbuster movie Seabiscuit is inspiration to all horse riders and owners throughout the world. It has been translated into many languages and is extremely popular among those who are passionate about horses and also those that are not. This film is a fantastic story about an underdog who becomes a world-famous champion racehorse.

It shows that money cannot buy you success and there are still animals out there that have a lot of potential to beat the thoroughbred competition. The story successfully portrays a bond between a talented jockey and an un-trainable horse.

What brings the two together is that a wealthy businessman who has the funds to purchase the best horse equipment decides to put these two together and the companionship is magical. What really is amazing about this film is that it displays the bond that a horse has with its owner. This is something that is hard to explain and only those who have their own animals will understand this. Horse riding and ownership is a fantastic hobby and sport. There are millions of people around the world who love horse-riding and it is basically a lifestyle for them.

There is however an image of this sport being purely for the rich. They are able to easily afford it and spend lots of money on riding wear. These are simply material items and can be bought second-hand anyway. If you are truly passionate about owning one of these animals then you shouldn’t let money come in between your dream. There are more affordable ways of owning a horse and you do not have to spend all of your money on luxury horse rugs. By being a little savvy and shopping around you will still be able to get the best equipment for your animal and enjoy this hobby.

For those who want to get into horse riding then there are many riding centres that will be more than happy to work out an affordable package for you to get into horse riding. Also there are many jobs that are related to this industry so you can actually make a hobby a lifetime career.

Mayweather vs. Mosley

mayweather

I’m not a big boxing fan, but when hubby is the one watching a scheduled fight I can’t help but watch too. Today, we are watching the match between Shane Mosley and Floyd Mayweather at our local channel here (GMA Ch. 7). Both are good fighters, but hubby is rooting for Mayweather over Mosley. He said whoever wins this fight, might be Manny Pacquiao’s opponent in his next big fight this year. Those who are watching today’s game need not take any sleep aid since the excitement will just keep them awake. 😀
