Beginner Horse Riding Education with Debbie Burgermeister
By Debbie Burgermeister
Providing beginner horse lovers with the best start to horse riding. An education pathway - finally a development guide for parents and all ages to learn faster and have a safer horse journey. With expert horsewoman, coach and author of Giddy Up Beginner Books - Debbie Burgermeister, over 40yrs of knowledge to share condensed into her books for a tool kit of summarised reference material & checklists. It all started out growing up with horses on a farm with her parents, competing, training horses and running her own horse riding school Bonogin Valley Horse Retreat on the Gold Coast, Australia
This is just a snippet of thinking about my amazing memories of growing up on 3000 acres with sheep, cattle and horses. So much more I could waffle on forever with. As I look at my so-called "lady" hands I often wonder how horse girls can have nails or non-marked skin. I look at my dented bruised finger from the stable door and laugh, or I think about the sadness of the 9yr old boy that died 20yrs ago after I did CPR.....OR....I think about the joy of holding my twins for the first time 4 weeks after they were born 3mths early just 560g............ BUT when I think hard about my 43yr old hands I think of what these hands have done on a farm with horses, sheep, cattle, chooks, cooking, cleaning, lifting, cutting, campfires, rivers, old cars and fixing fences...... the life of a country Australian that so many young people do not appreciate that I have had the blessing to experience - a farmer, a wife, a mother, a labourer, a mechanic, a factory worker and a horseman. These are all skills I cherish and I would not trade my hands for anything in the world as the stories are in my mind and my heart forever.
I thank my family, my friends and my employers for the experiences of life to help me learn and grow in mind & body! I pray our youth continue to be educated away from the computer with hands on reality and stories to cherish of their own
