Are you still in?
The world turns, November churns on, and equestrians everywhere are adjusting to life without their stirrups (at least for this month). But where last week’s social media roundup included overtones of nerves, resignation and even fear of trying to walk the next day, this week there’s more of a hopeful feeling. We’re starting to see results. Those goals we set on November 1 maybe don’t seem so far away now.
