This picture, ladies and gentleman, is pretty much my deepest fear when it comes to jogging horses, and young horses in particular. I’m pretty sure this little filly gawked and maybe threw a hoof in front of her unknowing handler, as babies are wont to do, and here he is taking a graceful swan dive into the dirt. If it makes you feel better, the next two frames were of him with a broad smile being dragged along on his bum, in all possible hilarity at the situation. Also, horse person pro tip example: NEVER let go of the horse no matter what, so well done sir!

News From Around the Globe:

The USEA has established two educational scholarships in memory of the late Roger Haller. Designed to provide financial assistance to those licensed officials who are working towards promotion to the “R” license, the “S” license or the FEI licenses. The Roger Haller Scholarship may be used to offset the costs involved in attending the necessary seminars and obtaining the practical experience required to attain promotion to the next level of licensing. The USEA will award scholarships of $5,000 each to two individuals in 2016. [Roger Haller Scholarship]

You could win the chance to hunt Burghley winner and double Olympian Lenamore. After retiring sound in 2013, the twenty-three year old 15.3 hand gelding has taken up fox hunting with his owner Lexi Jackson with the Warwickshire Hunt. Apparently despite his feisty nature in Eventing, he adores hunting and thinks it’s a great retirement plan. A day of hunting on him is part of the hunt’s auction of promises. There will be some caveats to the prize, including rider weight and level of skill. [Win A Ride on Lenamore]

Looking for a better way to organize your horse’s stuff outside the stall? We just got one of these Burlingham Sports Grooming Box numbers where I work, and I have to say that I really love it. It comes in all kinds of colors for you to customize, and is very roomy to contain all your grooming supplies, some medicine if needed, and some odds and ends. This way, all your stuff is handily right outside the stall and you can keep it all tidy and clean in the plastic wall hanging box. [SmartPak Product of the Day]
