Nobody looks good in tight white breeches. I repeat: nobody. This week, we’re talking with a dietician about body image and proper dieting for equestrian athletes. It’s been a while since Facebook cracked down on horse ads, so how are people selling horses? And when is it too cold to hose down your horse? Thanks for tuning in.
Natalie Gavi is a Los Angeles-based Registered Dietitian Nutritionist who is passionate about the power that food plays in health, disease prevention & management, and athletic performance. She regularly works with equestrian athletes and is a contributor at Heels Down Mag.
More on what we talked about in this episode:
Mail bag: “What temperature do you consider ‘too cool’ to hose down your horse after a ride?” | @HeelsDownMag
Ellie Woznica is a 22-year-old freelance book designer and horse trainer because she couldn’t choose which career to pursue and her mom said she wouldn’t make the decision for her. She grew up showing the hunters and jumpers, but in university, she learned to ride western and fell in love with reining.
Jessica Payne is a 32-year-old international event rider who is rarely seen without her long-haired chihuahua under her arm. She was born in London, Ontario, but grew up in Franklin, Tenn. and graduated from Auburn University with a degree in Animal Science. She once lost the tip of her pinky finger clipping her 4* horse, and husband Doug says she can “talk to anyone including a wall….and they will like it!”
Justine Griffin is an award winning 30-year-old journalist who has written about everything from horses to high profile CEOs to her ovaries. (She donated her eggs once.) Two things she loves the most? Whippet puppies and cheese. Justine is a firm believer in unicorns and feminism. So take everything she says with a grain of salt.
