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. “Bits” (Ask Anything)
Forum user Alc816 has a horse that pulls on her, and is hoping to find a better bit that will suit him (and her!) Do you have any advice? Any go-to bits in your arsenal?
2. “Botflies” (Ask Anything)
Here’s a question that’s bound to keep you up at night: can humans get infected by bots? (We’re leaning towards no, but if you have any experiences to the contrary, please share!)
3. “Mustangs” (Breeding)
The mustang issue in the United States continues to develop almost daily, with no clear solution in sight. Join our discussion on what could be done, what should be done, and how we can preserve and protect America’s wild horses.
4. “I went to a horse auction for the first time…” (The Unstable Life)
Do you frequent horse auctions? Share your auction-house experiences: did you find a bargain? Or did you take home a “charity case?” (Or are those not mutually-exclusive statements?)
5. “No-Stirrup November Support Group Thread!” (Training)
We’re almost two-thirds of the way through November! How are you feeling? Have any stories to share, successful or horrific? We’re all here to help.
So what are you waiting for? Join any of these conversations, or start your own–we’re all crazy horse people here.
