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)
Silly cowboy, trucks are for girls … but don’t worry, everyone is allowed to chime in on this thread! What do you drive to haul? (Brittany Hook Bromage just dropped that she gets 17 mpg while hauling. She’s a magician.)
2. “Need help! How to ride quicker, having time faults!” (Training)
Do you have any advice for this forum user who’s having some issues in the jumper ring? Any exercises, training tips or mental preparation is welcome in this discussion about finding distances and increasing confidence.
3. “Weird colic presentation” (Horse Health)
Forum users may have finally discovered the real issue at the core of this Percheron mare’s unusual colic symptoms. Check out the conclusion and weigh in — do you agree or disagree?
4. “Help with Tying” (Training)
Do you have a horse who pulls back? Join us as we commiserate with those who do, and then offer your own tips and advice for ways to overcome this problem — either by circumventing the issue altogether, or by helping the horse be more comfortable while tied.
5. “Horse Names” (Ask Anything)
Need a show name for your horse? Have a new member in your herd who needs a good barn name? Post photos and suggestions here!
So what are you waiting for? Join any of these conversations, or start your own–we’re all crazy horse people here.
