Wednesday Reading List

Did you attend the inaugural Maryland 5 Star earlier this month? If so, the event is asking for feedback to help improve the event in coming years. Click here to take the survey.

We all love a VIP volunteer! Meet the latest volunteer highlighted by the USEA: Jim Moyer, who this year alone has logged more than 250 volunteer hours at events.

Ava Stauber lost most of her hearing when she was younger, most likely due to a viral infection. As she’s learned to adapt her life and her riding to this “invisible disability”, Ava’s on a mission not only to reach her goals as a rider, but also to foster a more inclusive equestrian community for those in similar circumstances. Read more about Ava here.

The oncoming cooler weather can mean more time spent indoors for some horses. Along with this can come an increase in potential for irritants to pester your horse’s sensitive respiratory system. Read more about what to be aware of indoors, and how to help support your horse’s lungs and breathing, here.
