March Resources

A short one this month! I've been spending a lot of time outside and in the evenings, seem to have been reading books unrelated to horses. Thanks to all your input re: cameras I've temporarily(?) gone down the rabbit hole of all things photography.

- To start, here's an inspiring, feel good story.

The Double Bridle: An Instrument of Understanding. From Eurodressage, a great in depth look at  history, use, and technique.

These are amazing and I want them. Holly Spagnola Design.

- Check out this blog post outlining exercises From The Queen of Cavalletti. Ingrid Klimke might just be my favorite rider, so I'm going to try these for sure.

- If you're showing in Canada this year it's time to review the 2019 Equestrian Canada rule changes! Here's a handy article from Horse Sport magazine outlining some of the changes that might impact you.

- 'Ride' the 1969 Badminton Cross Country course. You know you want to!

- The Mustang. Looks like it could be good!

- The Greatest Sports Story Never Told. Great article and I'm going to buy the book, because she sounds like a protagonist I could cheer for.  Unbreakable: The Woman Who Defied the Nazis in the World's Most Dangerous Horse Race by Richard Askwith


  1. Ooh, that movie looks great. I haven't been to the theater in years but would totally go if we get that!

    1. We're headed to the city next weekend and it's playing there. I'm hopeful Greg will want to go and will post a review if we do!

  2. The link to the exercise by Ingrid is GOLDEN- thanks for these!

    1. Ingrid is amazing- I was able to watch part of her clinic here but struggled to write a good recap - loved that one and that they took the time to draw out diagrams for us!

    1. I'm such a horse media junkie - Thank you for reading, it's fun to share all my bookmarked stuff!

    1. Hopefully they are not as pricey as that $1000 wool cooler last month, but even if they are, beautiful things deserve a share :)
