What is even going on here?! Photo by Jade Barker.

One of my favorite mindless activities is to scroll through Sh*tEventersUnite on Facebook, which is where I found the gem of a photo above. There are some photos where you just wonder, what exactly is the story here? How did this happen?? Did the girl fall off the bay and then immediately hop up to catch her friend falling off the grey? That’s truly content creation at it’s finest, and I guarantee you she was thinking, “Dang, I’m gonna post this on SEU for sure”.

I tell all my students that when riding in the summer, make your choices carefully. In Virginia it’s tooooo hot sometimes, and it’s not healthy for horse or human. Riding early in the morning is best, but afternoon shade is okay too. Choosing the length of your ride, the frequency of walk breaks, and maybe opting for a hack in the woods versus boiling in the hot arena, are all important considerations.
