As everyone knows horse riding is one of the most common activities that are being carried out in Portugal. On the matter of the gelding clinics, most everyone I know (this is in the draft industry) will geld studs that they don’t think are good enough to breed. Now some hold their stock in higher regards than others and even when they should not be bred, people will breed them anyway. Usually this is to their own stock and other mares of the same quality. So you could have these clinics, yes, but it would be a matter of convincing people with poorer quality animals that they should not breed them. For those who just can’t afford the procedure I would have to question whether they could even afford the horse in the first place. It’s a good idea but for a select group. The Thoroughbred breed of horses is deemed to be one of the fastest pedigrees of race horses in the world. It is no wonder then that champion Thoroughbreds reign supreme in the horse racing industry. The evolution of Thoroughbreds in Britain during the 17th and 18th centuries can be traced to the lineage of three main Arabic stallions. Technically speaking the Miniature Horse is a small, very small, pony. But breeders today try to produce minis that truly look very much like their bigger counterparts – the horse. On the surface, you could argue that the two are nowhere close to being similar. Athletes in traditional sports have been honing their skills since childhood and have put in many hours working to get in the best physical shape possible. They spend hours every week studying the playstyle of their upcoming opponent, keeping a lookout for any weakness that could give them an edge. They’ve fought their way through the minor leagues of their particular sport to be considered one of the best. Not just anyone can pick up a football, baseball, basketball, etc. and become a professional, there’s a lot of hard work, dedication, and sacrifice that goes into reaching that level. However, many of these things can also be said for professional gamers. Many gamers claim to have been playing video games since they were young children, most beginning to pursue the competitive side of gaming in their early teens. They spend hours learning every aspect of their preferred game, learning things like secret jumps, nade points, and different angles for sniping. They also review film and watch streams of other players and teams to see what they do in certain scenarios so they can be better equipped to counter that strategy. They’ve worked their way up from teams that are often comprised of neighborhood friends or people they’ve met playing online, to better teams hoping that they’ll be noticed by one of the top players and be given the chance to prove themselves. While millions of people all over the world play video games in some capacity, only a small percentage of those have the talent and dedication required to be considered a professional.
