It’s that time of year for the fall campaigns to begin in earnest! To that tune, both Robyn Fisher and Hawley Bennett-Awad are hosting fundraisers to help them reach their respective fall goals. Robyn will be competing Betawave in the 7-year-old Championships at Le Lion and Hawley is heading East to Fair Hill to contest the CCI3* with Jollybo.

Don’t miss this moving story on Burghley rookies Nick Lucey and Proud Courage. This pair was an unlikely one, and Nick admits he never thought he’d make it past the one-star level with this horse. It just goes to show: you never know what can happen! [Burghley First-Timers]

Weekly Business Tip from Mythic Landing Enterprises:

When you are starting to outline a marketing plan for your year, the first step is to identify your market. An up-down lesson barn is going to have a different clientele than an Olympian’s training facility. A local trailer dealer is going to have a different clientele than an international saddle manufacturer. In order to not waste money, you need to identify your market accurately.
