What is this white stuff I’m seeing on my Facebook over the last few days? Snow? It’s so weird to have migrated to warmer climates this year, where I likely won’t see much in the way of frozen precipitation. That said, as inconvenient and messy as it can be, I do think I’ll miss having a big winter. As eventers flock to the southern parts of the country, I think we’re all thinking the same thing: warm weather is much better motivation to keep chugging away towards those 2017 goals! Go get ’em, EN.

Events Opening This Week:

Poplar Place Farm January H.T. (GA, A-3)

News & Notes:

George Morris stopped in Oregon this weekend to give riders plenty of homework to work on over the winter. Our friends at The Chronicle of the Horse have been keeping us up to date with daily reports from the three-day clinic, and you can catch up on day three right here. The mantra of the day? “Don’t Pull, Fix.” [Day Three with George Morris]

C Square Farm and Courtney Cooper have launched their first annual Holiday Auction to help raise funds to support the upcoming season.
