Hey guys! It is my second day in college – I’m now an Economy student at the University of Oporto – and it’s raining a lot (I don´t know how this is possible) so it is the perfect moment to write a new post.
After two months without having my own horse, I am starting to feel that it is the time to get a new one. I will wait a few more time until I have everything organized at my new home and then I will start looking for a new horse, barn & trainer. Until that, I will keep riding at my barn in Coimbra with my trainer.
Today’s post is about balancing school and horses because that is not easy! You might have some issues on balancing your time between school and riding so today I will give you some tips:

 1. Get a planner

Horse Agenda

You need to plan your time so that you can do everything you need and as you should. Choose the right agenda, there are so many options these days – you can even get one that has horses on it like the ones in the image above!

2. Get everything done before you go to the barn

In our hearts, horses are always first but we need to think correctly: get everything done before you go to the barn because you will always spend more time there than you think. You’ll get home tired and without strength to spend hours studying.
3. Never say you don’t need school because you are going to be a professional rider
We can’t predict the future so school is very, very, very important! Even if you become a professional rider, trainer, etc., what you learn at school will help you at some point and it can also give you some better opportunities.
4. Make sure you eat & sleep enough
You won’t be able to ride if you aren’t healthy, take care of yourself 🙂
I hope these tips help you on your daily life as an equestrian and student! How do you guys balance horses and school? Share your tips with us on the comment box!
