 Why I Love Thoroughbred Crosses

“Thoroughbred crosses are infiltrating horse shows, they’re overtaking cross country courses, and they’re filling dressage rings. I love this, especially because they’re not necessarily conventional crosses. The opportunities are basically endless, as are the possibilities of what kind of cross you might want.” Read  it.


Quick & Dirty Workout: Anywhere, Anytime! 

“Need a quick workout to fit into a busy day? Repeat this circuit as many times as you can in 15 minutes. If you’re working hard that entire time you’re burning 250++ calories and are guaranteed to get your sweat on.” Read it.
