Friday!!! FRRIIIIIDDDAAAYYY!!! For normal people, it means survival for only one more day until the weekend, and for horse people it means travel to events, or waiting until Friday night to madly pack your trailer, bathe your horse, double check that your pants are white and your vest is in the trailer, and pray that you wake up after only three alarms early on Saturday morning. Actually, does anybody have research on the long term affects of waking up stupid early and spending many hours in the hot sun wearing pants? I feel like that might explain a lot of the er…personalities that you encounter in the horse world…

News From Around The Globe:

WEG playground d’Ornano Stadium got an unexpected weather test yesterday, when the arena had torrential rains. The show jumping test event was delayed for forty minutes as the rain came down like gangbusters, and all the riders were pleased to note that the drainage systems were working great. One rider even noted that his round before the rain and after the rain felt almost identical in terms of footing. Go go awesome WEG location! [d’Ornano Stadium Survives Downpour]

If you’re getting ready to buy a new helmet WAIT until July 12th! Created by Riders4Helmets, the fifth annual Helmet Awareness Day will be on the twelfth of this coming month, and many helmets across the world will be on sale.

First thing our coaches tell us: “Sit up straight!” But how do you know if you’re straight, and if you aren’t how can you fix it? Almost everybody is crooked or wonky one way, because we are naturally one sided animals. The best way is to figure out which side you favor, and do a ton of exercises to build new muscle memory. Most people are crooked through their pelvis, so loosening that up and fixing your base is the best way to become straight. [How Straight Are You?]
