Have you posted your letter to Santa yet? Millie Way, daughter of British five-star eventers Ben and Sarah Way, made sure to get in there nice and early — and she did it in style, too. Frankly, all I want for Christmas is for my farrier to be paid off in advance.

National Holiday: It’s National Gazpacho Day. Yes, it’s meant to be cold.

US Weekend Action:

Rocking Horse December H.T. (Altoona, Fl.): [Website] [Results]

Your Monday Reading List:

British-based Jamaican eventer Lydia Heywood continues to blaze trails in the industry. Check out this great feature on the fierce and fearless young rider who wants to make the sport more accessible for everyone.

There’s a secret Hermès museum in Paris, and I really want to go. The hidden atelier is packed full of the inspirations behind some of the world’s most prestigious (and expensive) tack and accessories.

Are you an artsy type who fancies a career drawing horses? Find out what it’s like with Emily Cole, whose cheerful, witty illustrations have made a big splash in the horse world.

If you live in Philadelphia, you could live my dream: order books, and have them delivered to you by horseback. Owner Jeannine A. Cook has teamed up with the Fletcher Street Urban Riding Club to do something way, way cooler than Jeff Bezos ever could.

The FutureTrack Follow:


Love reading? Then you’ll want to follow the Horse Girls’ Book Club, which is full of reading inspo for these cold, dark evenings. Bliss.

Morning Viewing:


Burghley’s back, baby — and I can’t wait to return to one of my favourite places in 2022!
