Happy Thanksgiving, Eventing Nation! It is with great pleasure that we introduce our shiny new series, Throwback Thursday. The chinchillas caught wind of the pesky hashtag (#tbt), and we thought we would run with it and make Thursdays a bit more entertaining. Since today is Thanksgiving, we will begin our Throwback Thursday series with a look back on EN’s Thanksgiving posts from years past. I stumbled upon one written by John in the early days of Eventing Nation, and it most certainly reminds all of us here at EN of how far we have come in a short amount of time, all in thanks to you. So sit back with your pumpkin pie and ever increasing sense of turkey-induced delirium and enjoy EN’s Thanksgiving Throwback.

“With respect to Eventing Nation, thank you to the thousands of you who have welcomed us into your eventing lives. It may seem like a small thing for you to log onto Eventing Nation, but we put a great deal of time into developing the best eventing content to serve our readers, and every single visitor means a great deal to us. Thank you all so very much and go eventing.”
