Tuesday News and Notes:

Turn on the forehand is a big learning curve for a young horse. But Meghan Truppner says it is an important submission question. She starts their introduction to this on the ground to gradually introduce the concept. [Introduce Turn on the Forehand to Your Young Horse]

Barn fires are a horse owner’s worst nightmare. And unfortunately, hay can be easily ignited. There are many steps you can take to protect your horses and your barn, including safer hay storage. [Don’t Let Your Horse Hay Go Up In Flames]

EN knows how therapeutic horses can be, and the rest of the world is figuring it out too. The U.S. House of Representatives recently approved an amendment to increase funding for the Veteran’s Affairs Adaptive Sports Grant for equine-assisted therapy for $5,000,000 [House Approves $5M for Equine-Assisted Therapy Aid to Veterans]
