How Wendy found Better Dressage Scores: With the Covid-19 pandemic and all shows being cancelled I heard that there were virtual shows.

May’s Featured Rider

Michelle and her horse, Firefly, live out in Nothern California and are on the road to kicking butt and taking names! She is an eventer with a strong love and deep appreciation for dressage, but very few shows near her offer eventing dressage tests. “It’s really critical that we can get as many points as possible out of our dressage tests.  It was hard for me to get good feedback about these particular tests (in a 20X40 arena) without doing…

Aviva Nebesky, one of our wonderful judges, had a live Q&A session on Facebook with us back in March.

The Road to Recovery – April’s Featured Rider

Jennifer grew up as a hunter/jumper and had the good fortune of parents who would sit in a 20 degree barn or the super hot summers to allow her to ride. After several years of competing for her college equestrian team, she moved to Florida to work in the horse industry. Unfortunately, that’s where she lost all her confidence.

Forever.

They say smells can bring back a lot of memories. Have you ever smelled something familiar and about 100 memories came flooding back to you? I have, but let me back up some… Back in high school, I got my first horse, Nike. I wish I could say she was the best thing that ever happened to me.

Let Us Pay For Your Passion

I know what it’s like to love this sport so much it hurts. It hurts that you want to show off all of the hard work you’ve put in to it, to enjoy the weekend with your friends, and to soak in the horse show life. But you know you can’t afford to pay for stabling, training, hauling, or even entry fees, so in the meantime, you’ll happily be the groom for all those who can. But that’s all about…
