Happy spring/summer/fly season!
I am sharing a few links today because 1) I need to tell you I added a picture to the most recent post, Fish Camp, of the actual activity. Go check it out! Also because 2) I need to tell you I’m having another baby in July so I may be taking a hiatus for a few weeks coming up! I have so many posts in my head I wish I could share with you, but the reality is I have a 2 year old and newborn on the way and it’s been a busy past year. But I will post when I can, and as I’ve said, I’m still compiling information on managing horse behavior and will have a huge series done for you by the end of the year 🙂 That said, the theme for today’s links is: “If I’m not posting enough for you, check out these links!” Enjoy!
Top Blogs for the Therapeutic Riding Instructor
~ Hooffalls & Footfalls. There is a *NEW* blog focused on Equine Assisted Activities & Therapies! Saebra Pipoly has started up a website, which is awesome because she’s way more qualified than me to be doing any of this, so I look forward to learning from her 🙂 I’m honestly surprised that mine has been the only consistent TR blog I know of for the past 6 years, it’s about time someone else started one! She’s going all the way with instagram, and a YouTube channel so definitely check it out! I already used one of her tips about thumbs on top to hold the reins with a rider to great success – a correction I might not have noticed so quickly if I had not been perusing her website.
~ TheRidingInstructor.net is one of my favs. She’s been posting more lately and has some great new recent articles, including When the Riding Instructor’s Confidence Fails, 3 Tips to Combat Instructor Burnout, and Types of Fear in Riding Students.
~ The Rubber Curry Comb! I think every one of my “A Few Links” posts has a link to some article on her site because she often posts about specific riding skills and has such a lovely way of explaining the whats, whys, and hows. I’m super in awe of her because she’s quite prolific at posting despite having just had a baby!
~ CRK Training. Callie focuses on your own riding and horse training so she too has wonderful posts about the whats, whys, and hows. She explains things very thoroughly and has really good videos such as the one below.
And just so you can learn something actually related to riding instruction in this post today, here’s an excellent video by CRK Training!

Do you have any blogs you’d recommend to readers, that you follow besides Lessons In TR?
