Anti-Aging Skincare Secrets for Riders

Riding might give you super toned inner thighs and an enviable booty, but it’s not exactly kind to the skin. Hours upon hours out in the blazing sun (check out our post on sun protection for riding HERE), wind, and cold (not to mention a good amount of bouncing around) doesn’t do much to help in the fight against again. While we’re all for aging gracefully, we’re also pretty into being able to go sans-makeup at a show and feel like a million bucks, so a good anti-agin skincare routine is crucial if you, like us, spend a lot of […]

Amateur Spotlight: Leslie Hazard

Our first amateur spotlight of October is Leslie Hazard, and we couldn’t start this off without congratulating Leslie on her amazing showing at the GSDHJA 2017 Champ Show! This show was particularly special for Leslie, as Jasmin Stair Stables dedicated the show week to Leslie’s longtime trainer and friend, the incomparable Nancy Reed, who’s spirit was watching over Leslie and her mount, Final Edition, as they rode in her honor.

Yoga for Equestrians

What Is The Equestrian Confidential?

The Equestrian Confidential was born from a need for an online space for the huge community of horse show addicted, dedicated, horse loving amateur riders to connect, converse, and come to for tips, tricks, wine recommendations, a good laugh, and a hefty dose of positivity. The EC was created by a dynamic duo of one trainer with a barn full of mildly anxious, hard working, highly social adult riders – and one of those very adult amateurs – both who realized the community was missing a place for everyone to come together (outside of their own barns). While there are […]
