Have you checked out The Equestrian Confidential yet? Founded by two GSDHJA members, EC is a proud supporter of GSDHJA and a dedicated hub for amateur riders in Southern California and beyond.
The Equestrian Confidential was born from a need for an online space for the huge community of horse show addicted, dedicated, horse loving amateur riders to connect, converse, and come to for tips, tricks, wine recommendations, a good laugh, and a hefty dose of positivity. EC was created by a dynamic duo of one trainer with a barn full of mildly anxious, hard working, highly social adult riders and one of those very adult amateurs, both who realized the community was missing a place for everyone to come together (outside of their own barns).
While there are a few equestrian blogs, websites, and social networks out there, most of them are focused either on professional riders, show news, or multi-discipline advice that isn’t really geared to what the amateur show rider wants to know. Where’s the frank discussion on ringside anxiety? Where’s the skincare tips for blazing hot show weekends? Most importantly where is the wine list?
Not to fear, it’s all on The Equestrian Confidential.
The Equestrian Confidential is all about frank discussion, tips and advice you actually care about, and the conversations that you’d have at the barn with your friends. From hunt coats that cover love handles to yoga moves to up your Eq game, show morning routines to help you focus to the best post-Saturday lesson cocktails and everything in between, The Equestrian Confidential is dedicated to the amateur show lifestyle and committed to creating a positive, fun, engaging community that you’ll definitely want to be a part of.
This is a perpetual exhibitors party, a personal show stylist, a life coach, and a place to get a good laugh. From actionable advice to entertaining articles, the EC blog is your one stop shop for amateur life. Join in on social media and the private Facebook group to connect with other riders, ask any and every question, and get involved with the community that you already love.
Join our mailing list for our monthly newsletter, including: an invitation to join the private Facebook community, special discounts from our brand partners (for tack, clothes, and gear you actually want), exclusive interviews, special first looks at podcast and video episodes, extra trainer tips, show updates, and more.
