We are all guilty of giving others - a.k.a. our horses - 5* care, but what about you? Whether you are a dedicated volunteer, hardworking owner, full time rider or ambitious amateur, we take a look at some of the things you can do to take care of yourself and keep you feeling on top this season.
Whether you are a competitor or eventing fan, walking and eventing go hand in hand. When you are not walking cross country courses on beautiful eventing estates and parklands, the UK is a walker’s paradise. Be it an arduous scramble up a sheer mountain or a gentle buggy walk through a field dusted in heather, here's some non-eventing walks for you to explore.
There's no doubt that part of eventing's appeal is the stunning places where competitions are held. Not only can spectators enjoy days of high-octane horsey action, but you can browse tradestands full of goodies and a fantastic social scene, all against the backdrop of some of the UK's most impressive country estates. Here are a few things you might not know about some of the spectacular venues.
There's no denying it, being an eventing competitor, volunteer or fan requires a lot of necessary equipment. Coats and shoes for every weather possibility, tupperwares for the picnic, a multitude of bathroom smellies to scrub off the (not so) sweet smell of a long day eventing... so we have had a look at some of the ways you can use the space in your home with storage ideas to put away or display.
The eventing life can be exciting, busy and non-stop sometimes, add to that competition nerves, early mornings, late nights and the responsibility of horse care – it’s even more important to try to create an oasis of calm at home. The good news is that it’s easy to do and needn’t cost a fortune – we've put together some simple steps to get you started.
