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. “Help With Moving!” (Training)
Forum user SBP just moved her nervous mare to a new barn and is having a tough time settling her in. Can you help her out with some advice and tips to make the transition as painless as possible for both horse and rider?
2. “Introduce us to your horse(s)!” (Brag Board)
The forum herd is growing: add your horse(s)to the mix and awwww over your fellow forum users’ best friends. Every horse has a story to tell, and this is the perfect place to share it.
3. “Self-defense while riding?” (Endurance/Trail)
Amanda Ronan’s article on self-defense on the trail went viral earlier this week and spawned some great discussion. Bring your experiences, questions and suggestions over to the forum to share with your fellow equestrians and let’s help each other out!
4. “Weirdest Thing You’ve Encountered On a Trail Ride?” (Endurance/Trail)
The stories range from the funny to the weird to the just plain spooky — as we enter trail-riding season, take a look at what your fellow equestrians have encountered out on the range!
5. “Horse-related professional jobs?” (Ask Anything)
Help a fellow equestrian out: forum user LCHoos1 is looking to leave her desk job and do something in the horse industry … but she’s not sure what. Hands-on horse work not necessarily required, so the possibilities are endless: leave her your suggestions!
So what are you waiting for? Join any of these conversations, or start your own–we’re all crazy horse people here.
