Expand your horizons.
By Reese Koffler Stanfield, USDF gold medalist, FEI-certified instructor, owner of Maplecrest Farm
Take this time to expand your horizons and learn something new. Read an equine-focused book or magazine about a discipline you don’t usually participate in. Watch a training video, listen to a podcast, or learn a new skill, such as long lining or lounging. Expanding your knowledge base makes you a better horse person.
