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. “Exercises for young horses” (Training)
KariAM’s potential young horse is becoming a reality in the next few weeks! So she’ll be looking for more exercises for young horses specifically to build confidence, both on the ground and under saddle. Do you have any new ideas to add?
2. “Not about a horse this time :)” (Brag Board)
Ladies, do share the amazing things your patient horse-husbands have done for you while you’re too busy hanging out at the barn or watching your money gallop away across the pasture.
3. “What’s your HUMAN blanketing chart?” (Community Exchange)
We’re well into spring in the northern hemisphere but this thread has picked up again (hey, if nothing else, it’s a good time to buy thermal clothes on clearance.) Our readers in the southern hemisphere might be interested this time of year as well!
4. “Who’s your ’15 Derby pick?” (Racing)
The Kentucky Derby is just a few weeks away, so it’s time to start making your picks! It’s an all-star field of really talented colts this year, so there’s really no wrong answer.
5. “Tiny barrel racer” (Western)
Guaranteed to be the cutest two minutes of your day. Just click this link and watch the video…you won’t regret it.
So what are you waiting for? Join any of these conversations, or start your own–we’re all crazy horse people here.
