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. “New to English?” (Ask Anything)
Alicia DeSart is transitioning from riding in an endurance saddle to an English saddle and is seeking advice on saddle fit for her Tennessee Walker. Have any tips or suggestions to share?
2. “Horses In The Morning” (Community Exchange)
Are YOU a listener? Stop by this thread and meet other fans of the Horse Radio Network’s program ‘Horses in the Morning,’ and make sure you tune in to listen to the Horse Nation special report each Monday. Links are in the thread!
3. “First lesson at new barn-concerns?” (Ask Anything)
This thread is picking up from its introduction last week–you’ve added some really good considerations and advice for Rachael Hartley, whose first lesson didn’t go so well. If you haven’t joined this conversation yet, stop by!
4. “Stretching and Softening Exercises?” (Training)
Wattsy first introduced us to her “pasture puff” a few weeks ago–but she’s still open for suggestions and ideas. In response to some suggestions, she’d like to know if anyone has experience lunging on an incline for fitness and top line: do you have any advice to share?
5. “Keeping In Shape” (Ask Anything)
Spring is coming! But that means that if you haven’t been able to ride much, you’ve got some ground to make up in getting fit. See other forum users’ tips and ideas for staying toned over the winter and get a kick-start on your spring training now.
So what are you waiting for? Join any of these conversations, or start your own–we’re all crazy horse people here.
