Wednesday News & Notes from Haygain

A fabulous new sticker available from Haybales & Barbells.

I spied a photo this week of this cool new sticker available from Haybales & Barbells. It’s so crazy to think of how far we’ve come from the days of little or no diversity to today. Now, a conscious effort on the part of so many entrepreneurs and businesses to make inclusivity a part of everyday language has made more riders feel welcomed into the world of horses.

The work never ends, indeed, and more strides towards increased diversity, equity, and inclusion remain ahead of us. But projects such as Jamie’s over at Haybales & Barbells are great reminders of how incredible our world can be.

Proceeds from the sale of the Equestrians of Color sticker will benefit the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation.
