I guess it’s a week out now, so everybody should have their Thanksgiving menu planned right? Thanksgiving is about a lot of things, but for me mostly it’s the food, if I’m being totally honest. Every year I just wonder why we don’t actually eat stuffing all year round, and then inevitably I forget until next November. And today is National Stuffing Day!

News From Around the Globe:

It’s the end of the season, so of course it’s time for some more confusing changes to FEI rules. The flag rule for eventers is of course of paramount importance, with the slight change now that says that the hindquarters must jump the height of the object even if they dislodge the flag. Other changes involving blood in dressage, spurs and martingales in jumping, and a complete overhaul of endurance have also been announced. [New FEI Rule Changes]

As riders we might be unfit for the jog strip, but our horses usually have a variety of body work specialists on call. My horse has a chiropractor, an acupuncturist, a masseuse, and a PEMF practitioner, just to name a few. I’ve experienced the magic of these therapies on a few occasions, and really enjoyed acupuncture in particular. Could your horse benefit from this therapy as well?
