Friday News & Notes from Zoetis

Honestly, I think fall might be my favorite time of year. I’m going to put my head on a chopping block and say that I don’t hate daylight savings (this one anyway), and I really really love the crisp weather that comes along with it. That, and the colors are just insane right now with green grass and bright foliage. I mean look at this picture! I will never apologize for slowly turning EN into a Huey fan page, but the fall colors and the sly side-eye totally do it for me here.

News From Around the Globe:

If you’re not obsessed with Laura Collett after this year, what are you even doing?? Now that she’s been part of the British Gold Medal Olympic Team with her unbelievably handsome London 52 (who also won Pau 5* last year), she’s been thrown onto a bigger stage of interest. FEI caught up with her for some questions about her life, and found some facts you may not know about her as a person, and a rider. Also, one of her side gigs is schooling racehorses over jumps, so please enjoy the video below of all the outtakes, and I dare you not to laugh. [5 Things To Know About Laura Collett]

Remington XXV has lived a lot of lives in his 25 years, and he’s not done quite yet. Originally a foxhunter, Remi completed four five-star tracks with Boyd Martin in the irons, and was his reserve horse for the 2012 Olympics and the 2010 WEG. After that, he competed through Advanced with Caitlin Silliman, and competed at the 2015 NAYC with Camilla Grover-Dodge. He’s been turned out for a few years on retirement, but now he’s been called up to the big leagues: trying to tame Nox Martin. [Three Careers, Two Martins, One Remington]

Are you a horseless rider in need of a fix? Luckily for you, we’ve found an expert on the matter, and she’s discovered a few ingenious ways to keep your sanity in check with horse time even if you don’t own one. From virtual lessons, to book recommendations, and even virtual master class subscriptions, you can spend plenty of time this winter getting pony miles. [How To Keep Horseless Riders Learning]

I may have watched this video crying laughing 40 times in a row, no apologies.
