Fall is here, and with it, short days, terrible weather, and mud. So much mud. Here's what you can do to combat the bad-weather blues.

Mudhorse angels work too.
Transfer the mud from your horse to yourself.
Who are we kidding…open a bottle of wine and clean tack.
Snuggle up with some reading material, make some bad decisions on smartpakequine.com…all in a day's work.
Go Riding! (If the weather isn't too awful.)
