The Meaning Of Competition

Our Yagya Riders take a moment to reflect about what really matters when competing.

It's never been about the ribbons.

Competition is not only about competing. It represents a strong bond between horse and rider, fostering growth and communication. It builds up individuals through accomplishments and humbles them through mistakes. It creates a sense of community and ultimately enhances self-worth from within. We asked some of our Yagya Riders to encompass what competition meant to them, condensed into one word. This is what they said.
