Horse Nation runs the gamut when it comes to content. We’ve got serious stuff, newsy stuff, inspirational stuff, disturbing stuff, informative stuff and, of course, ridiculous stuff.
As opposed to sticking with one voice or another, I think the site better reflects the breadth and depth of the equestrian experience by chasing it all over the map.
Yesterday, for instance, our two most popular stories were at absolute opposite ends of the spectrum. On one hand, there was So, This Horse Walks into a Bar: A collection of horse jokes (ba-dum ching!); at the other, there was Chelsea Alexander’s beautiful and poignant essay, Reflection: A very generous benefactor. In the same way that I admire a movie that can move you to alternately laugh and get teary-eyed over the course of 90 minutes, I’m glad that Horse Nation is a platform for both horse humor and reflection.
Thank you, as always, for reading.
Amerigo knows a little something about versatility, too. Amerigo-brand jump saddles are used by top riders of all disciplines, all over the world, who know they can count on their saddles to help them achieve those vital clear rounds, those extra few percentage points, and save those essential seconds. Amerigo’s comprehensive range of models is designed to accommodate the many different types of horses found in the show-ring today.
Listen to what top show-jumping rider Aaron Vale has to say about Amerigo saddles: “At the top levels of every sport, everyone is looking for an advantage. Amerigo saddles give my horses that extra advantage. Amerigo saddles put me in a balanced position and allow my horses to move and jump freely with very little interference from the tack. The end result is increased performance from my horses.”
