Tuesday News & Notes from Legends Horse Feeds

New jumps coming to The Carolina Horse Park!

Some new fences are slated to make their debut at The Carolina Horse Park in Raeford, N.C. Think this looks a little familiar? That’s because they have been generously given from Brad Turley at Southern 8th’s Farm, which hosted the Heart of the Carolinas Three-Day Event. Though the much loved HOTC event is no longer held, the fences can continue to be a part of eventing. Thank you Brad for all you have done for our sport.

Tuesday News: 

The ever present conversation in eventing is safety. How can we make cross country safer? This is a puzzle with many interlocking pieces, but riders can be accountable, too. Heading out on course, you’re entering into a contract with your horse where you are responsible for setting them up for success.
