Sunday Links from SmartPak

As show season creeps closer, I’m getting out my garment bag, digging my sun hat out from the depths of my closet, and trying to remember just how it was that I survived competition weekends last summer. I’m absolutely not a morning person, I was living out of my barn owners’ living quarters at each event, I have a rather inconvenient medical diet, and all our show venues are hours away. Can someone please remind me how the show life works? Thankfully, after my barn family and I moved to our trainer’s home base barn a few months ago, our team has become even larger, so I’m very excited about us all being there to support each other at events this year; however, our previous barn owners (see: Designated Horse Show Mom & Dad) are moving back home, so my whole vibe is thrown off. Do they crown a new Designated Horse Show Mom, or is there a sort of lineage protocol to be followed? Please advise on how this hierarchy works.
