#EventerSolutions: 15 Times We Borrowed Our Horse’s Stuff for DIY Physical Therapy

Where there are #EventerProblems there are #EventerSolutions, as we horsefolks tend to be a pretty crafty, resourceful and frugal (read: broke) bunch. In this spinoff series we spotlight some of your most inventive problem-solving masterpieces. Be sure to tag your photos with the hashtag #EventerSolutions on social for inclusion in future editions!

Eventers invest a considerable amount of money in gear designed to help our horse’s feel and perform their best. So when we ourselves get a little busted up, the least they can do is share, right?

I for one am so relieved to know that I’m not the only one out there wrapping my legs in Ice Vibe boots after a tough run, using Vetwrap in off-label ways and curling up on the couch in a Back on Track blanket.
