USEA members might spot a familiar Henny face in their mailbox this month! US Eventing magazine asked if I’d be interested in writing about life as an amateur eventer on a budget, and I happily jumped at the chance. Behold my new column: Beyond 9-5.
Although, it’s funny, I write here 5 days a week without having to put a lot of effort into it, most of the time words just flow (it’s not verbal diarrhea since it’s typed, so what would we call it, finger diarrhea? Ok, maybe not…). Writing the column was significantly more difficult. It felt more formal and more serious, being in print. Around here I’m anything but formal or serious. Hopefully it gets a little easier as it evolves and I find my groove, just like the blog did. I’m currently trying to figure out what topic I want to cover next. Tack/equipment shopping on the cheap, tent camping, DIY trailer fixer-upping (pretend that’s a word), dyeing tack, etc? I should probably go back through my blog and see what all I’ve done. Anything in particular amidst my years of shenanigans that sticks out to you guys as a good next topic?
I also have to give props to US Eventing magazine in general. I’ve always really liked flipping through it, but over the past year they’ve really amped up the breeding and young horse development articles and I’m loving it. This one in particular really grabbed my attention in this issue:
Might be slightly biased (ahem) but I have to say I agree.
Speaking of everyone’s favorite 73% thoroughbred, I have some pretty exciting Presto news to share tomorrow (hopefully. if things keep going well. knock on wood.). Look what he made yesterday!!!
Ok so it wasn’t fresh anymore by the time the picture was taken so it’s kinda dried out already, but look at that REAL POOP. Not a puddle, not a patty, but legit normal poop!
Nope, I’m not even a little sorry for putting a poop pic on my blog.
