The darkness doesn’t have to steal your horsey-time, and it doesn’t even have to put a serious damper on your workout or training routines. Get yourself some portable light sources and some great reflective gear, and make the Fall and Winter season your best yet!
We spend more time taking care of our horses than actually riding. Horses need to be cared for every day – all year – whether we ride or not. Sharon Jantzen shares tips and tools for saving time with barn chores to make the most of your riding time.
Everything had been planned, the time had been set aside, we each had a suitable horse/pony to ride, and we were looking forward to a fun, shared experience. As we planned the day a question ran across my mind, “Is the tack ride-worthy?” I checked the girth I thought we’d use with our saddle for the trail ride; it was missing a buckle! Sharon Jantzen gives us a checklist for making sure our tack is ride-worthy.
If you’re looking for the perfect “small gifts” for your favorite horse lovers, here’s a list that will guide you to some really fun things. Sarah Williams has done the shopping for you. Simply keep this list handy, because Christmas will be here before you know it!
Nobody really knows what we’re in store for here on the Central Coast this winter, but it’s better to be safe than sorry when it comes to having the proper “winter wear” for your horse.
