We’re pleased to present this follow-up to last week’s segment with Sarah Reese, president of Berks Equine Council, a non-profit organization dedicated to horses, horse owners, open space, and educating people about what horses bring to Berks County. We spent some time last week at Sarah’s Passport Farms in Oley, PA, learning about her farm and work with the Council.

Here, Sarah talks about how she became hooked on horses and why she thinks more and more adults are gravitating towards riding.

“Traditional sports just don’t quite offer the complexity they’re looking for,” she said. “I think I’m typical of a lot of adults who yearn for something that gets them outside and demands a lot of them in terms of expertise and learning. You’re never done learning about a horse. You’re never done learning about the sport. When you think you know what you’re doing, it’s time to get a new horse and try something different.”

This weekend–Saturday, August 12–the Berks Equine Council is hosting a “Mini-Prix” competition. You can find more information about this and other upcoming events on the Council’s calendar.
