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. “How do you explain foxhunting to your non-horsey friends?” (Foxhunting)
Foxhunting can be a hot-button issue when your non-equestrian friends think you’re thundering around terrorizing woodland creatures for sport. How do you explain what actually happens on a hunt to your non-horsey friends (or your horsey friends who just don’t understand?)
2. “Horsewomen’s Recipe Exchange” (Community Exchange)
Autumn is crockpot season: need some new recipes to spice up your old standbys? This is the place to get inspiration when making your meals. We’re all in the same boat this time of year — shorter days mean we want to spend every last moment at the barn rather than cooking!
3. “What horsey books are you reading?” (Community Exchange)
Looking for some new titles? Or just finished a good equine read that you can’t wait to share with your fellow equestrians? Consider this your virtual book club.
4. “Horses in Ireland” (Ask Anything)
A new forum user is moving to Dublin in January! Does anyone know of any good eventing barns in the southern half of Ireland where she can continue training?
5. “Public opinion on blanketing… ” (Ask Anything)
It’s that time of year again … the time when the internet explodes with blanketing vs. non-blanketing debates. Weigh in with your thoughts in this highly-civilized conversation where no one will pooh-pooh your opinion.
So what are you waiting for? Join any of these conversations, or start your own–we’re all crazy horse people here.
