Happy Independence Day! To all those who have served and those who stood beside them to preserve our independence, we thank you!

3 wild horses

Did you know horses have incredible hearing, with the ability to hear the heartbeat of a human from four feet away? In the wild, horses will synchronize their heartbeats to the other horses in the herd in order to sense danger more quickly, and recent studies have shown that they use those tactics in domesticated life as well. When our horses interact with us, they tend to synchronize to our heartbeats, meaning they can sense slight adjustments in our mood. This means when us riders get nervous about something, we inadvertently translate our fears and anxieties onto our horses.

SynNutra Team Rider Ashlee Bond took Tryon by storm with many top placings, including a big win aboard Donatello 141 in the $37,000 CSI3* Grand Prix, 1st and 2nd place in the CSI3* classes aboard Boheme De Fleyres, 1st on Contefina LVF in the $25,000 Classic, multiple wins for Essy in the 7-year-old division, and many other top placings. We wish Ashlee the best of luck as she travels to Europe to compete and prepare for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
