Free Courses, Webinars and More for Horse Owners

Hey equestrian family!

It can be really hard to be productive during this current state of affairs. If you can, though, I really encourage you to disconnect from social media and current events for a few hours a day and do something nice for yourself.

Over at Loose Rein Collections, my website for sharing equestrian inspiration, I have started listing all of the free courses, webinars and live-streams I can find for horse owners and riders.

There are many offerings from universities, world-renowned trainers, and respected organizations available free for the taking!

Visit my Loose Rein Collections: Free Online Resources for Equestrians During Lockdown to see the full list, and check in every few days, as I am constantly adding more offerings!

Think positively!

If you can’t ride right now because of stay-at-home orders, this might be the perfect time to take a course on horsekeeping or biosecurity on farms.

If you are wondering how you’re going to shift your business in the post-lockdown economy, there are awesome courses on farm management and homesteading available.

Or maybe you have more time to ride because you’re not teaching or going to work and your horse is at home – now you can learn a lot and put it into practice right away by using free training videos from top trainers.

I’ll see you at Loose Rein Collections!

Things to Read on the Internet: March 7, 2020

It’s Saturday and I’ve been reading things on the Internet all week. I thought: why not share this nonsense with you, the readers who might also like the same things as me? Right? So here it is: everything from the past week for you to read!
 
Work-Life-Horse Balance, at my new site Loose Rein Collections, is for anyone who has ever had a commute, a demanding job, and a choice to make: https://www.loosereincollections.com/2020/03/01/work-life-horse-balance/
 
The Gaucho Derby is on, and the Adventurists are on it: https://www.theadventurists.com/updates/gaucho-derby-race-day-1/
 
Eventing Nation posted a list of “horse novels that don’t suck” which could have just as easily been a listing of old horse books plucked from a quick internet search as a series of actual recommendations, so lots of people are posting their faves in the comments – check them out for something you haven’t read yet: https://www.facebook.com/eventingnation/posts/3832017333483004
 
Barnes & Noble is about to undergo a renaissance which involves fewer toys and junk for sale at the cashwrap and more community-focused booksellers, and I am here for it:
 
And completely unrelated, I had a sudden desire to re-read THE CHILDREN OF NOISY VILLAGE by Astrid Lindgren… have you read these little Swedish charmers? https://www.astridlindgren.com/en/characters/the-children-of-noisy-village
What caught your attention this week?
