According to Free Riding New Zealand, although it may sound exaggerated, Alycia Burton’s career saving “threatened” horses has given her a new perspective on life. Burton rose to fame after pictures and videos of her leaping a horse bareback and bridle-free went viral.
“I work with horses that no one else wants to ride or that have severe behavioral issues. The outcomes are undeniable. Burton states this in an interview with Free Riding. I’m here to show that success in the equestrian sector and upholding a professional image need not require financial resources, despite the odds.
It’s not like when I buy a horse, I say, “That’s a horse that’s bucked everyone off, is dangerous, and has a problem.” My initial thought upon viewing it is, “Wow, that horse is fantastic.” Speaking your desires into existence will bring forth exactly what you have requested. Burton claims in a video for City Impact Church.
Her outlook has helped her a lot on her journey. She chose to take a chance after quitting high school at the age of 15. She left her job at a neighborhood bank and started her own business. She trained horses after school and worked with animals who had behavioral issues. She lived in a garage and worked there on the side.
She currently takes the trained animals on training excursions all throughout New Zealand. Without any official training to fall back on, she has honed her skills via hands-on experience with horses. She obviously has a close relationship with the horses she works with.
