EN would like to send a belated birthday wish to Fleeceworks rider Tamie Smith, who celebrated in style with a successful weekend at Rebecca Farm.

We also spy a fancy talent making her way through the ranks in MB MaiBlume, who won her Preliminary division on her dressage score. Stay tuned for more on this talented mare!

BuzzFeed News reports that the Australian team has, at least for the time being, pulled out of the Rio Olympic Village for all of its athletes. Improvements are still being made on the living quarters. [Rio Olympic Village is a Hot Mess]

With summer finally here and temperatures rising, it is the perfect time to stress the importance of electrolytes. Some eventers feed electrolytes to their horses daily, while others only feed them in extreme heat or during a strenuous competition. But when do horses need those extra electrolytes, and why?

Weekly Business Tip from Mythic Landing Enterprises:

If you are placing classified ads on a website, pay special attention to how the ads are listed. Most sites will post the newest ads at the top of your searches. So you want to check to see if when you renew an ad that the ad will be refreshed and sent back to the top of the listings. If this is not the case, then it can be better to let the ad expire and then place a new ad so that you are back on top.
