4 poles: 7 exercises | Equestrian Events | Scoop.it
Brilliant exercises for those with little equipment and particularly for those who are on their own. You just need to set the four poles out before you get on, then all the exercises can be ridden ...

Sun, Fun And A Few Concerns

Sun, Fun And A Few Concerns | Equestrian Events | Scoop.it

I won’t lie. I walked into the pancake-flat showgrounds at the Stadium in Wellington, Fla., and I wanted to be annoyed.

Mary Getsey Bernier's insight:

Canter-MidAtlantic's executive director, Allie Conrad, shares her thoughts (and concerns) about the 2016 Wellington Eventing Showcase with The Chronicle of the Horse. What do you think, is this the future of Eventing? 

"I can’t help but think—is this where some people are trying to point the original grass-roots horse sport? The sport based on the foundation of volunteers and low-level riders making their very best egg-shapes at the letter C? Are the powers that be looking at the eventing world as a massive marketing opportunity?"

Sheer Will and Determination: The Story of Eventer Kim Walnes and Her Extraordinary Horse The Gray Goose

Sheer Will and Determination: The Story of Eventer Kim Walnes and Her Extraordinary Horse The Gray Goose | Equestrian Events | Scoop.it
By Doris Degner-Foster It seems like an impossible story: A young housewife in the 1970s with two small children had a dream of riding her horse over the highest cross-country jumps as a member of ...
Mary Getsey Bernier's insight:

I first "met" Kim Walnes online, and later in-person last month, at my friend's barn in Virginia. Kim felt like a kindred spirit, from the very first moment I met her. She inspires me, not just as the extraordinary rider and trainer she is, and with all she has accomplished as an equestrian, but equally as a human being. She has navigated glorious highs, and deep, tragic lows in her life. Like her, we lost a daughter, albeit in different circumstances. In spite of it all, she has remained positive, and she continues with warmth, love, and a huge, generous heart.

Kim is a spark of light and a gift to all who meet her:  horses, animals, people. She is my mentor. Like Kim, my father was in the military. We had limited means, and when we moved, I rode whatever horse I could find, and was given to ride. And today, like Kim was when she started many years ago, I am a Mom of two kids–and here I am at the age of 46, still dreaming of owning my first horse, and perhaps some day competing in Eventing, Thank you, Kim!

Excellent offer, from Rein-Aid!

Excellent offer, from Rein-Aid! | Equestrian Events | Scoop.it
Mary Getsey Bernier's insight:

How many times have you found something that works–I mean REALLY works for you and your horse? You want to tell the whole world, don't you? Well, here's your chance. If you aren't familiar with Rein-Aid, check them out. I use their Elasto-Reins, and it has helped me tremendously in learning and maintaining the feel of constant elastic contact when I ride. I was taught contact incorrectly in my early years of riding, and it wasn't until I rode with Rein-Aid reins that I finally felt and understood the subtle give-and-take that is necessary to create and maintain it.

When you ride without a helmet, or protest with all of your reasons to not wear one, you fail to protect the very thing that allows you to make that absurd rationalization, in the first place. Wear a helmet, always. #mindyourmelon

Blazing Saddles: radical design for horse riders

Blazing Saddles: radical design for horse riders | Equestrian Events | Scoop.it
The saddle creation from Martin Ryan promises a more flexible and softer experience
Mary Getsey Bernier's insight:

Could this be the future of saddles?  “Traditional saddles have a single structure that doesn’t really move much. Its shape conforms to the rider and how it fits the horse after that depends on how it is padded up. With my saddle, the cantilevered structure within the equipment provides the support for the rider while at the same time offering an inherent dynamic flexion for the horse,” ~Martin Ryan
