So happy I'm doing one of my ridiculous happy dances, spinning round and round in the living room! I have "news" (pun!).

Well, folks, it is my pleasure to announce that Horse Listening is now going to be published regularly in The Rider newspaper! The column will include some of the best-of-the-best articles from the blog.

"What is The Rider?" you ask....

The Rider is THE "go-to" newspaper in Ontario, Canada, publishing all of the most important and timely news regarding the horse scene in Ontario as well as around the world. If you want to know what is going on in Ontario, you pick up a Rider to find out. What I look forward to most are the updates from the various horse associations. You can read about the events in every organization from the Western disciplines to horse racing to trail associations to all the hunter/jumper and dressage news. Basically everyone I know picks up the newspaper each month it is published.

And now there is a new Horse Listening column in there!

HL Five Years
HL Bundle
HL Goal Setting
HL Book 3
HL Book 2
HL Book 1

Wahoo! Yippee! Yeehaw!

If you are in Ontario, please go pick up a copy of The Rider and check out all the news AND the HL article! And if you don't live in Ontario (I know there are many HL readers living all around the world), go here for the online version. You might have to wait for the August edition to be posted later this month.

And the blog goes on....
