Shedding season! The hair is every where! All this shedding can get you thinking about shedding a few things– clear out tack, old riding clothes, that old cracked helmet. Clean out the brushes – and all the hair in the brush box. Shed a few pounds to be within the recommended 20% guideline for total rider and tack weight for your horse. Then there’s time to tackle the cobwebs in the barn, and piles of hay dust. Shedding makes room for all the new opportunities that are coming your way – learn new skills, meet new people, visit new places, support new programs!
