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. “Equestrian activity tracker” (Training)
Have you ever used an equestrian activity tracker? (We mean the kind you put on your horse, not the fitness tools you use on yourself!) We want to know!
2. “Help with Tying” (Training)
Blocker rings, clips, the Equi-ping ties, ground-tying … what have you tried for horses that pull back? Join the discussion and let others know what’s worked for you and what’s hasn’t.
3. “Public opinion on blanketing…” (Ask Anything)
Judgment-free zone! Pick other readers’ brains on what they choose to do for blanketing and share your own thoughts. Nothing gets people more heated (ha, ha — get it?) than a good discussion on blanketing, but our forum is a happy place where everyone’s thoughts are welcome.
4. “How do you explain foxhunting to your non-horsey friends?” (Foxhunting)
Trying to explain how foxhunting works can be tricky, even to other equestrians who don’t understand the sport. Read other hunters’ thoughts and share your own description!
5. “No-Stirrup November Support Group Thread!” (Training)
We’re bringing back last year’s thread for you to air your grievances about No-Stirrup November. Are you participating? Are you curious? Check this thread out and see what your fellow readers are up to.
So what are you waiting for? Join any of these conversations, or start your own–we’re all crazy horse people here.
