Horse Nation is one of my favorite websites. It is a nice mix of informative articles about horse care/riding and op-eds about happenings in the horse world. It also includes some “newspaper comics” material with its “Idea of Order” series and other light-hearted features. Here is a roundup of my recent article favorites:
Ashley Francese wrote an article titled “What to Do When You and Your Horse Don’t See Eye to Eye.” Many of us have ended up with a horse that we didn’t quite click with very well. The author notes lots of great ways to approach this situation at https://www.horsenation.com/2020/10/01/what-to-do-when-you-and-your-horse-dont-see-eye-to-eye/.
Mary Lynne Carpenter (that’s me) details her reflections on matching our horses’ interests and abilities with our own riding ambitions. Read it at https://www.horsenation.com/2020/10/06/riding-in-the-same-direction/.
Dr. Darby Bonomi is a PhD Sport and Performance Psychologist. She wrote an encouraging article about changing our focus from how our body LOOKS on a horse to how our body FUNCTIONS on a horse.
