A person who works very hard with horses and at the sport of riding horses. A good equestrian is usually a very hardworking person who is completely commited to the sport of riding and the animals(horses/ponies) that he or she rides. Often stereotyped as being snobby and rich the equestrian is usually overlooked as a person who partakes in sports/ physical activity. Equestrians need to have the concentration and ability to judge distance like a golfer, strength and stamina of a hockey player, artistic flow and ability to make a hard thing look easy and beauiful like a gymnest, and and also know where everyone around them is at all times ALL WHILE controlling a 1000lb or more animal with your hands, back, neck, shoulders, thighs, calves, legs, heels, stomach, or basically every bone/muscle in your body with the help of a 5 inch piece of metal. "Riders use their entire bodies to tell their horse what they want them to do; the way they sit, move their hands, the pressure of their legs...dosens of signals pass between horse and rider, at every moment"-Horse Power: The Road To Maclay. To be an equestrian you have to know the sport in and out and be able to work as a team with your animal. A talented equestrian knows her horse as well as she knows her best friend if not better.
Maria is a very talented equestrian, everyday she goes to the barn to ride and work with hers and other peoples horses.

Someone once told me that i wasn't a true equestrian because my parents have money, but trust me when i say that when i get to the barn my horse couldn't care less about how much money i have in the bank
