Friday News & Notes from FLAIR Nasal Strips

This is how my Friday will look. It's how Thursday looked, so I'm planning on a repeat.

This is how my Friday will look. It’s how Thursday looked, so I’m planning on a repeat.

Friday Friday Friday, yippee it’s Friday! I’ve got some exciting things to do this weekend, including painting show jumps in my shorts and blinding anybody who drives by with my glow-in-the-dark legs, rubbing aloe on my legs, and then covering them up for the near future because they will still be ghostly white. However, in Canada, some more interesting things are happening, including the conclusion of the CCI* dressage, and the entirety of the CCI3* and CIC3* divisions. And cross country previews! Stay tuned for Leslie’s coverage from the great north.

News From The World:

I can’t stop stalking everything California Chrome. Somehow, all of the hype around this Triple Crown contender seems more exciting than others. Horse Racing Nation (an excellent blog, although not related to us) has come up with a breakdown of all the horses in the upcoming Belmont Stakes, with professional opinions on who could win and why. What kind of running style do the different horses have? All of these horses will be running this length for the first time, so it’s kind of a crap shoot. [Belmont Stakes Analysis]

Snap a selfie this weekend for FLAIR! FLAIR has requested that you snap a selfie of you and/or your horse and post it to their Facebook wall this weekend. Use the hashtag #CelebrateYourHorseWithFLAIR and show them some love. [FLAIR Facebook Page]

Speaking of the Belmont, how awesome would it be for FLAIR Nasal Strips if they contributed to the 12th Triple Crown Win? We Eventers have been obsessed with FLAIR strips for years now, and we’re delighted to find that the public is now getting a taste of the awesomeness that is FLAIR. They keep our horses nasal passages open when they are galloping on cross country, and reduce stress on the lungs. [Go FLAIR!]

If you’re a fan of Paulank Brockaugh, or just mares in general, you’ll be right on board with this list. Mares are more awesome because they have a better sense of self preservation, they’re great at bossing all the other horses around, and learning to ask politely is a skill that’s well applied in the rest of your life.

Do you have or know of an awesome Thoroughbred that deserves to have his or her story told? If so, you should check out the EN series Thoroughbred Legends, presented by Cosequin. We love sharing the stories of the horses that have helped us along the way, so if you have one to share please email Sally at [email protected].
