National Holiday: I went with National Fruit Cocktail Day today because, well, you know we could all use one.

US Equestrian president Murray Kessler published a letter to members as we look ahead to a June 1 reinstatement of some competitions. Over 100 rule modifications have been approved in advance of updated protocol for a return to competition.

Looking for a tune-up exercise as you get back into training in earnest? Check out our sister site, Jumper Nation, and their new “Jumper Nation Clinic” series.

With so much online content being published while we’re all at home we thought we’d put this little video together. Just for a laugh, watch our virtual course walk which is full of terrible ideas to help you jump a clear round show jumping. Hopefully it will provide you with a little entertainment during this lockdown period 🙃Devoucoux SsangYongGB Dengie Horse FeedsProtexin Equine Premium Equestrian Direct Surfaces Equilibrium Products EquiClass FLAIR Equine Nasal Strips Better4Hooves Gatehouse Hats Cannington Enterprises Ltd
