Thursday News & Notes

Just look at all the pretty colors…

I will be forever in awe of anyone who is a wizard at putting together a beautiful Google Sheet or Excel. It’s the kind of thing that I really wish I could do myself (yet haven’t pushed myself to) and makes me inexplicably happy to look at and peruse. Allie Heninger, a recent addition to Team EN, has blessed us with some beautiful documents for our internal use so I was already feeling very spoiled; but imagine my delight when I came across this Google Sheet of Area I events, clinics, and schooling jumper and dressage shows put together by Jay Olcott. Three cheers for Jay, who I will now consider a patron saint of Area I.

Reframe your thoughts to have a great ride. It’s easier said than done most times, but we don’t have to tell you that your horse picks up on whatever you’re thinking or feeling. So the next time you find yourself convinced that something bad is going to happen, try some positive thinking. I know, I actually hate that advice too, but positive thinking actually isn’t as corny as it sounds. It’s much more neutral, less cringe, and a useful tool in your mental toolbox. [Pay no attention to your ‘internal Netflix’]
