About "Equestrians For Christ.com"
Founder of Equestrians For Christ.com
"Hi, and welcome to Equestrians For Christ.com. This is basically a website where fellow riders who love the LORD JESUS CHRIST can come and fellowship together, as well as find out about Bible study groups in their area that are comprised of fellow horseback riders.
It is also a way for all of us who attend horse shows to be able to horse show and still have the opportunity to fellowship with other Christians. As a trainer who attends numerous horse shows during the season, I always feel a part of my week is missing if I can't get to church on a Sunday morning or a Wednesday evening because of horse showing. That's why I created this website, to establish a way for riders who love the LORD to be able to ride and show and still have a chance to praise the LORD and fellowship together while on the road at a horse show.
The goal is to
create a place for all of us to come together and network with other riders
who love the LORD!"
We are looking for Christian riders who regularly attend horse shows who want to volunteer to organize fellowship groups at whichever horse shows you attend. Your name and email address will be placed here for other Christian riders to find out if one of the shows that they are planning on attending will have other Christian riders there who would be willing to meet, either on Wednesday's after the horse show is over or early Sunday mornings before the show starts for some brief prayer and worship together.
All fellowship groups are non-denominational. You can be Catholic, Presbyterian, Lutheran, Baptist, Pentecostal, even Jewish. It doesn't matter. The only thing that is required is that you believe that JESUS CHRIST is the SON of GOD and that you love HIM with all of your heart, mind, soul and spirit.
If you would like to lead or join a Bible study group held at horse shows,
If are interested in fellowshipping with other riders in your area, join an Equestrian home group. Whether you ride hunters, jumpers, dressage, 3-day, intercollegiate or just for pleasure - whether you show every weekend or just ride in your backyard, we are all Brothers and Sisters in the LORD!

National Intercollegiate Chairwoman of Equestrians For Christ.com
"Horses are my daily living proof that God is awesome and provides joy for his children. No matter how long or hard of a day I've had, I always have enough energy to go to the barn. Walking in, smelling the smells, and seeing each head poke out of its stall to greet me, accompanied by maybe a whinnie or two, makes all my stresses and anxieties instantly dissolve. Horses are a blessing to me, and though horse shows can defer me from my normal Sunday church time, I see the glory and greatness of God in simple things like watching the horses school or the incredible feeling of a nice ride on a good draw. The beauty and might of these animals never ceases to put a smile on my face."
