Others are very general concepts that refer to the whole group of people who are riding in one or the other contexts, such as riders, riders, riders - the latter also implies a certain amount of expert knowledge within the American "western" stylistic cultur.
What is it like to be a pro rider?
Underway with the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials, 2009 champion Oliver Townend discussed 10 things you may only know if you are an events rider - from 2:30 a.m. wake-up call to 35mph on his horse...... "of the Premier League football. You' d think a horse doesn't have super-star skills, but it somehow ends up at the highest levels.
Or, you can have a young super star who looks the bee's knee in the meat - a horse flying over a fence is like a football player with all the abilities - but for whatever reasons, his stance isn't so great that it doesn't get all the way to the top.
Each horse is different. You' re gonna get over every crack, and if you got a railing, you're gonna get punished.

Up to 12 ponies per days, but on a jumping practice course I ride up to 30 ponies per die.
And Burghley is more friendly and laid-back, although we all want to beat him. We' re all good with horses, but anyone who says he's not here to be a winner talks nonsense. When I won Burghley, I went directly to a friend's home and had a big one. The whole Burghley victory was awesome.
