It’s easy to get wrapped up in the prestige around a horse show. After working hard to qualify and traveling miles, it would be easy for anyone to buckle under the pressure. Junior riders often feel this even more, with some of them aging out of certain divisions and stands full of parents, trainers and support team watching.

But at the end of the day, a horse show is just a horse show—no matter how famous. The reason we’re all there is to celebrate proper horsemanship and correct training. Regardless of the outcome, we have to love the sport and our horses.

These photos from Devon’s Junior weekend show just that. Happy kids having fun with their beloved horses and ponies. They’re exactly what horse showing is all about!
