Equestrians Anonymous: This Week’s Top 5 from the Forums

We’ll bring you the five best conversations from our forums each week. Check out Equestrians Anonymous and let your voice be heard!


If you haven’t been a regular on Horse Nation’s forum board Equestrians Anonymous, then you’re really missing out. Picture the tack room or the barn aisle at the end of the day: You’re hanging out with your barn buddies, speaking that magical language of equestrian that no one at home will ever understand, and it hits you that you are among your people. That’s what Equestrians Anonymous is like, and here are the top five conversations going on right now:

1. “What do you drive to haul?” (The Unstable Life)

Yep, this thread is back on the Top 5, because forum user bayeventer13 needs Horse Nation’s help to find a good truck to pull her trailer. What are your thoughts? Give bayeventer13 your suggestions or join the conversation (Dodge drivers, you better jump in there and defend your trucks…)

2. “Stretching and Softening Exercises?” (Training)

Forum user Wattsy has a pasture puff that’s coming back into training, and she’s looking for suggestions on exercises that will help him stretch and soften to the bit. I’m sure everyone reading has a trick or two that Wattsy would appreciate–share your ideas!

3. “Cute tricks or future problem?” (Training)

It’s so hard not to laugh when your horse is playing in your pocket or unzipping your jacket…should it be? Help forum user JulesFOD decide if enough is enough, or if her new horse’s behavior is just harmless fun.

4. “Horse-related professional jobs?” (Ask Anything)

New forum user LCHoos11 is totally over her desk job. Let’s help her find some ideas on what she can do in the horse industry! She’s got a great math and financial background but she needs some ideas on where to look…

5. “If you could try any discipline, what would you choose?” (Ask Anything)

Think of this thread as the ultimate thought experiment–you have unlimited funding and a barn full of horses ready to do whatever you’d like to try next. So what’ll it be? Eventing? Combined driving? Cutting? Leisure riding miles from the show pen? Share your thoughts with your fellow equestrians!

So what are you waiting for? Join any of these conversations, or start your own–we’re all crazy horse people here.
