You guys it’s been cold lately. I live in Georgia for a reason. Sure, the summers are brutal and you might melt, but this is supposed to be the time of year when we bask in mild summer sun as we enjoy regular winter rides in t-shirts. Yesterday it didn’t get above freezing and I did not sign up for this!!

In other news, my alma mater won the Rose Bowl yesterday, so consider this my obligatory GO DAWGS.

One of my biggest takeaways from Pony Club I still have are good bandaging skills. And consistent guilt about not cleaning my tack often enough. But bandaging can be tough, and doing it wrong can have consequences. There are many reasons you may want to wrap, so make sure you’ve got the practice down pat.  [Bandaging Fundamentals]

Horse people tend to use phrases that make absolutely no sense to the outside world. Listeners may know each word individually, but combine them and any sense of understanding is lost. Getting your horse to ‘lift through his back’ is one of these, but turns out this phrase technically doesn’t make any sense from a physiological standpoint either.
