“Between the ears, floating down the river lol”
Photo by Lucy Gray on Between The Ears.

We’ve shared several stunning photos in the past from the awesome Facebook page Between The Ears, but this one might just take the cake. Giving a vibe very compatible with our style here at EN, I think we can all admit that this particular view is where we’d all like to be right about now! And look how calm and collected this little bay is, despite the rather imposing water complex they’re facing. Honestly, some days I’d rather tackle a bank on this little guy than my own mare…

In all seriousness, we are definitely gaining new rivers of these proportions in arenas across the world, from our own local schooling event yesterday being cancelled due to flooding to the cancellation of this weekend’s Festival of British Eventing thanks to “unworkable” footing conditions after a particularly bad deluge. Make sure to double up on that flood damage insurance and enjoy the free water schooling in your driveway!
