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. “Hump in the back” (Training)

We’ve all been there … but this case of a “hump in the back” is a little bit different. Read Kristen’s account of what her horse is doing and chime in!

2. “Triple Crown in 2015?” (Racing)

Okay, at this point I think we all know how the Triple Crown turned out, but join the conversation on where you think the rest of the racing season is going! (Will the Breeders Cup Classic be a star-studded field of horses all gunning for American Pharoah?)

3. “Laying a horse down?” (Natural Horsemanship)

Evolving out of Amanda Ronan’s piece about laying down horses as a natural horsemanship method, this thread discusses whether or not it’s a valued tool or potentially cruel, and if it’s ever necessary.

4. “Ketchup to clean white tails?” (Ask Anything)

The Equine Mythbusters tackled this one this week, but the conversation thread is still going — what have you tried to get those white tails extra-clean? Has the ketchup trick worked for you?

5. “Favorite horsey movies?” (Community Exchange)

We’re never too old to curl up with a good horse movie, no matter how tacky or cheesy we might find them now. What are your favorites?

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