Wednesday News & Notes

In the winter, I send my horse south. It sucks to not see him every day and sucks to not ride but it’s also nice to have a break. My trainer kindly sends me cute photos and mini-updates and it rather makes me think that this must be what it’s like to send a kid off to summer camp.

Your Wednesday News & Notes

If you do nothing else today, check out the Chronicle’s feature on mental health. Eventing’s own Matt Brown is heavily featured, revealing the mental road he has traveled down. Other equestrian stars like Steffen Peters chime in as well; mental health is as equally important as anything else we do and there’s no shame in seeking help. [COTH]

Lauren Sprieser is also ready to talk about her own mental health. Being a horse professional is no easy task…well who am I kidding, sometimes just being an adult is no easy task. When the bad things keep coming, it’s ok to seek a little help to keep your head above water. [Winter Isn’t About Pottering Around]

The beloved Pavarotti is featured this week. Known in the barn as Rotti Boy, Pavarotti has a pint-sized best friend, a gray pony mare named CowDog purchased for $40 at a local auction. [Behind the Stall Door]
