It’s wild to think we’re already hurtling toward a new season (words I know I write every year; I’m probably due for some fresh thoughts, but that’s a tomorrow task), but here we are! Training camps are in full swing, with both the USEA’s EA21 camps and the USEF’s U25 camps taking place around the country in recent weeks.
One of my favorite bits of these camps is seeing the gorgeous work of the creatives who work tirelessly behind the scenes to bring the concepts to life. Content is a beast that’s never satisfied, and the time spend on creating those Reels we all share or the recaps detailing the training is high. So, be sure to follow the creators who breathe so much life into our sport!

Can you quantify “harmony” on horseback? Well, researchers are trying to answer that question. How? By taking measurements of the rider’s pelvis position at certain points during a ride. A part of Dr. Celeste Wilkins’s (University of Hartpury Margaret Giffen Centre for Rider Performance) PhD research, the study intends to identify a correlation, if there is one to be found, so that we can have a greater understanding of the concept of harmony and how to achieve it.
