Can you believe it’s already time for the winter migration? I definitely can’t. But like it or not, wherever you look now, eventers are packing the rigs and heading south for the colder months, and Ocala is soon to be one of the most happening eventing hotspots once again. Having spent a few months in Ocala last year, I can definitely say that it’s worth the trip if you can swing it. Simply immersing yourself in the culture that eventers have adopted is a once in a lifetime experience, and I’m a bit envious of those who are making the trek again this year! Safe travels to all.

Weekly Business Tip from Mythic Landing Enterprises:
When putting together an e-blast, try to avoid just putting a .pdf or .jpg into the e-blast template, as this often makes it non-mobile compatible and limits the number of links you can include. If you decide to pay an outside company to send an e-blast, make sure that you are getting a custom design, and that there is a social share option so that readers can easily share your e-blast onto their social media outlets.
