Let’s Discuss: Are Equine Service Professionals Complicit in the Poor Care of Their Clients’ Horses?
Does the fear of losing business drive the way vets, farriers, dentists, and other equine service professionals deliver advice to horse owners?
Is it the job of a movie or TV show to “set a good example” for the general public? What does that even mean in the context of the equine industry?
Well-meaning relatives and friends may not know much about your horse life, but they do know you love horses! And that can lead to all sorts of creative gift-giving…
What do you need to have for every ride?
All of that good advice, rolled up into one article.
Horse Nation is vast and wide with plenty of climate zones included, as well as indoor arenas/outdoor arenas/the great outdoors. With winter upon us, let’s discuss: what kind of winter weather puts a halt to your riding?

Have you ever seen an equine get started quite like this?
This video is starting to go viral all over the horsey internet, with just about every reaction imaginable. We thought we’d share it with the readers of Horse Nation and see what you all think.
Aside from the totally obnoxious fact that this video was shot sideways (unfortunately, there’s no way for us to turn it, so bear with us) what do you think about this method? (Must be logged in to Facebook to view.)

Well, that’s a new one on us. There’s no wild whipping or spurring going on, which we can appreciate, but it’s certainly an… unconventional method, to say the least. The video description states that “this mule got broke today,” so we can only assume that the caption speaks the truth and that this mule had never been backed before.
Weigh in, Horse Nation. What do you think?
Go riding! (Maybe facing forward though… )
