Weekly Blog Post Roundup

A selection of posts from the equestrian blogosphere this week.

Fitbit for horseback riding: fun facts and figures from Saddle Seeks Horse
I've thought on and off about getting a Fitbit, trendy as they are, but have always come down against. This is a useful horse-specific review.

Social media and your horse from Poor Woman Showing
I've been thinking about this a lot lately, actually. How does the performative nature of blogging change your riding and horsemanship? Does it?

What Do Wednesday: Winter Riding from Chasing the Dream
It's that time of year for posts about riding in the winter. This is a nicely written and thoughtful overview of one rider's tactics.

Why we longe from Horse Collaborative
Ok, ok, this isn't really a blog post, but it is phenomenal. Read this if you longe your horse. I'm serious.

Real talk: Our 2015 show season in dollars from 'Fraidy Cat Eventing
Great overview, and an interesting addition to some other posts that have been floating around lately.


  1. One hundred percent agree on the longeing article. Letting your horse wing around you like a looney is accomplishing nothing.

    1. I have never understood longeing to tire a horse out, or the people who don't longe because they're worried it would fit them up too much. Doing it wrong!


Thanks for commenting! It's great to hear from you.
