Hard work. Effort. Grit. We see riders win medals and have success but we don’t always see what they did to get there. In this issue, we have a two-part series on Jacob Pope, a remarkable rider from humble beginnings in Columbia, Maryland, who worked his way to the highest echelons of the junior hunter/jumper world.
NAJYRC double gold and individual silver medalist Nicole Doolittle takes us back in time to share the challenges she faced and lessons learned while moving up the levels from beginner novice to FEI CCI2*.
New contributors Liv Gude, founder of Professional Equine Grooms, provides nitty gritty tack cleaning tips, Rebecca Barber reveals ways to quiet that pesky inner voice that doubts your abilities, working student Jordan Kelly has a budgeting plan for equestrians with limited funds.
