Wednesday News & Notes

I came across a new series that Horse & Country TV has produced with Jamaican eventer Lydia Heywood and the Ebony Horse Club in Brixton, United Kingdom. The series, “Learning with Lydia” will follow Lydia and the riders at Ebony Horse Club as she helps them navigate new riding and life skills. Horse & Country TV has produced a lot of top-quality content that I find highly entertaining and educational, and this is one more to add to the list!
