Dear Riding Community,
We lose an hour of sleep this month but we gain the possibility of squeezing in one of those end of the day rides when the sun is low in the sky and the coolness of the evening is creeping across the arena.
The extended daylight triggers our horses to begin the shedding process of their winter coats. Its funny to walk down the barn aisle and see the piles of hair after someone has groomed their horse - this one a bay, this one a chestnut, etc.
I love it when I spy a bird's nest tucked into a barn rafter that is completely lined in horse hair. What a luxurious nest! It always makes me smile when I see a nest with white hairs because I know it came from my horse.
It is interesting to consider that we're all in this together - the birds, the horses, the riders, the grooms, the trainers, - whether we acknowledge it or not.
We are a community and the best part is - there are horses in it!
Are you tired of all the "corny" equestrian t-shirts? Mustangs in the snow and cowgirl sayings on tye-dyed shapeless tees? Well now you can dress up in a form-flattering shirt with edgy graphics for your favorite discipline. These t-shirts are eye-catching and different and there's even one that just plainly says 'Horseworship" across the chest.
They are made in Malibu of organic cotton.
Enough said. Come get one.
