It was sent on behalf of Trove LLC, a new line of CBD  -- cannabidiol -- products that the four-time Olympic dressage rider is endorsing while pursuing a fifth Olympic appearance in Tokyo next summer.

by Kristin Medall Simpson-Ferguson Hardin (posted on Brian Sean Wee’s Next Level Horse Business Facebook group.)

Facebook has been a mob since Rob’s decision.

I’ve never been more saddened by people’s lack of decorum and lack of respect for the dead, those left behind, the victims, and the human beings who did the multi-year investigation.

Elevate your ride and enjoy it more.

by Darby Bonomi, PhD

Fear can be debilitating. It can also be highly motivating. How do you transform nerves that negatively impact your performance into an internal fire that focuses your mind, elevates your ride, and opens the door to more joy in the saddle?

First, let’s talk a bit about fear and nerves: I place fear into three general categories: Realistic, Physical, and Mental.

You can’t always get what you want …but sometimes, you’ll get what you need.

by Premier Equestrian

So last week you competed at a facility with a surface that was perfect for every ride… and there were hundreds of them. A rainstorm even came through and the arena drained quickly and was back in use faster than you expected. Now you’re thinking this is the perfect surface for your arena at home. However, some equestrian professionals and veterinarians agree that the footing at your last horse show is not necessarily what you need at home. Horse show surfaces are designed with very specific goals in mind. These objectives are different than those you may have for your own arena.

The show season is about to start in earnest for many riders, which means that you might be thinking about getting a new saddle for yourself and your horse. Maybe a brand-new saddle (hopefully one that fits you and can be adjusted to ensure optimum fit for your horse), but there are also ‘previously loved’ options out there that could be just as good. Used saddles can be on the market for a number of reasons, some of which could be:

Moving Forward After the Unthinkable: IEA Nationals success reflects resiliency of the Black Fence Farm family.

by Kim F. Miller

There is no “getting over” the death of 20-plus horses, but there is “looking for positive things to keep going” for Black Fence Farm’s Katie Flanigan.

One September morning in 2015, Katie arrived at her Clovis training barn to several horses showing clear signs of distress. Along with those who have already died from feed containing an ingredient toxic to horses, another 10 owned by Katie are in “hospice care” with her. They are comfortable and appear healthy, but cannot be ridden because sudden collapse is a possibility after poisoning by monensin, an ingredient intended for cattle feed.

Over the years we have been visited by people who remembered when it was being built, people who remembered sitting around the wood stove in back when it was the general store, and people who performed in plays when it was the community center, but it’s been the Cabaline Country Emporium for the last 40 years.
