Tuesday News & Notes from Ocala Horse Properties

You can’t always be away winning five-stars in the family Price — sometimes, you’ve got to wrangle the, um, greener ones on their way to future success, as demonstrated by better half of the Price clan, Jonelle, competing at Oasby last weekend while Tim was here at Maryland. Ah, this sport — it’s wonderful, isn’t it??

Want to ride with Bettina Hoy? Don’t miss out on the MARS Bromont Rising West coast leg at Galway Downs, where U25 riders competing at FEI levels are eligible to apply for the clinic happening at the end of October. [Get those applications in!]

I love a good “equine career change” story, and I also happen to loosely know the subject of this article through the various eventing social media circles I’m in. Meet Morgan Cooper, who wound up discovering eventing after starting off in the Western world. [Change of Rein: Morgan Cooper]

We’ve all been taught that gut sounds are a good thing — but what, exactly, do they mean? In fact, gut sounds are something that veterinarians are looking for in different areas of your horse’s abdomen, using this information as indicators of health. [More on gut sounds]

Want to support Strides for Equality Equestrians? Join the nonprofit organization for an online auction, happening now through the end of the month. Lots of goodies, including lessons with top riders, a Ride iQ membership, and much more are up for grabs. [SEE the auction]

Our favorite Ocala Horse Properties find this week might be *just* out of my price range (and never fear, Ocala Horse Properties’ portfolio includes farms of all sizes and budgets!), but what a gorgeous property! I am 100% visualizing myself here as we speak…
