Soundtracks The Divide Written by Zack Turner and Tim Jackson Courtesy of First Note Entertainment See more » The horses on Cumberland Island are entirely unmanaged, except for very occasional intervention in the case of extreme injury.
Established in 1965, Assateague Island National Seashore is home to wild Chincoteague Ponies owned by two different states: Virginia and Maryland. A fence divides these two herds on Assateague Island at the state line between Maryland and Virginia.
Local folklore states that the Assateague horses survived a shipwreck off the Virginia coast, although there are no historical records to prove the tale. Detailed information from 16th-century Spanish ship logs and journals indicates that the first horses arrived at the Outer Banks as early as 1520.
Visitors in 4WD vehicles can view the horses by driving along the beach and on sandy side roads. Throughout Crack history, these small but sturdy horses have served the residents, the U.S. Lifesaving Service, and the U.S. Coast Guard.
Shackle ford Banks, one of the islands of Cape Lookout National Seashore, is home to over 100 wild horses. Visitors frequently enjoy a glimpse of the Reserve's horses galloping along the beach or standing in the higher elevations.
Special programs and field trips are available through the Reserve, the NC Maritime Museum, and other organizations. The horses found along the southeastern coast seem to possess a special mystique that intrigues and enchants thousands of visitors each year.
Living among the salt marshes, dunes, and maritime forests in Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, and Georgia, these small, sturdy horses have survived for centuries and can still be enjoyed today. I was one hell of a teenager: utterly independent, debated everything and sought full control over my own life by the time I was 13.
Cons: first off, horses are expensive– they’re actually black holes for money, let’s be realistic. They take countless hours and coordination of chauffeuring your daughter back and forth from the barn.
A horse could mold your daughter into the person you’d be proud to see her grow into. To all the parents who are weighing the pros and cons of horse ownership, here’s why I would argue that it’s worth every penny.
When she’s busy at the barn riding (… and grooming, and cleaning tack, and cleaning stalls and doing turnout and dumping wheelbarrows and raking the arena and so on) she has less time to get into trouble. Boredom and friends who may be a bad influence get pushed to the side line, because frankly, getting a job to pay for that new saddle is more important.
Some may argues that horses take up too much time for kids, but I disagree– as long as it’s not all work and there is some play in there, their days may be full, but they’re fulfilling. Figure out a system to split up the costs that works for both of you.
It depends on her skill and patience to learn new things and uphold good manners. It depends on her time and her money to eat, to drink, and to have shelter.
This kind of dependence builds a lot of responsibility and character in your little girl, as long as she follows through on her end of the deal to take care of them. If you’re thinking that a dog can build the same responsibility and be a lot cheaper, you’re right and you’re wrong.
If she had to decide between going to town with her friends and taking her dog for a walk, she could potentially combine the two. Most riding is an independent sport (she does it alone, versus on a team).
Another thought to ponder on: your daughter is going to tell this 1,000 pound animal to move one inch to the left. And when the horse does something out of line, she will be responsible for administering the proper discipline.
The barn offers a good variety of role models of many ages. Having a horse boarded at a barn offers a daily interaction for your daughter with people of all ages.
When you drop her off, she will have the opportunity to freely connect with other women, without feeling the pressure of mom or dad standing by. Instead of just interacting with one age group in school or in sports, your daughter will talk many women in their 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s.
If they get close enough, they’ll start to seek support from these women, which is key– they’ll normally offer the same advise you might want to as a parent, and your daughter may be more apt to listen to someone outside the family. Many girls end up acting “more mature for their age” because of this daily influence.
She didn’t ride that move quite right, her legs slipped back and that’s why she fell off. Cleaning stalls, doing turnout, feeding– all of these barn chores actively burn calories and build muscle.
Having her own horse means that for the most part she’ll be riding on her own, outside a lesson situation. This means that she’ll have to work through a lot of the daily training challenges that come up when riding on her own.
It will force her to think creatively about how she’s training her horse and how to solve a particular problem. Being in a lesson program provides necessary guidance, but when it’s not paired with independent riding, it can create a mental dependence on someone telling her exactly what to do and when to do it.
All of this active participation in learning how to ride, how to train and what to do when a challenge emerges will help her in high school, in college and in every job from there on out. I also need to understand a big picture first before breaking it down into smaller details.
When she has that “ah-ha” moment, she can break down to recognize how it was explained to her and ask for that kind of teaching in the future. She can also apply it to the other learning that she has to do in school and later in life, in her career.
In Conclusion… At the end of the day, you’ll have to work as a family to decide if a horse is really the right fit. But I know from experience, horses help girls grow into empathic, engaged, and responsible young women.
