About Eventing Day

Eventing Day should have been up and running five years ago, when I first had the idea for an all eventing all the time website. It was way back then that I purchased the URL and then promptly got busy with the barn, the horses, people, work, writing, family, etc.  You get the picture. I just got snowed under and Eventing Day was pushed to the back burner.

I've loved and worked in this sport for many years and always thought about Eventing Day, but it wasn't until recently that I decided to trot the URL out of the barn and get to work on this site.

I truly envisioned this site as a viewer-oriented place with lots of room for what you have to say about the sport we all love.  But, first of all, it is just my site.

I love people stories andI want to hear about your riding, your horses, your adventures in cross-country and your stadium and dressage triumphs and disappointments. Send me your weekend photos and stories and I'll post them on the Start Box page. It's your page to post what you find interesting and informative, opinionated and thought provoking.

If you're an organizer, send me any info and photos you'd like to pass along for The Organizer's Corner page.  It's there, waiting for you to use for entry info, volunteer requests -- anything you want to communicate to eventers and eventing fans.

I'll be doing rider and personality profiles, horse profiles, weekend wrap-ups, and passing along news and information that I find interesting and that you may find useful and entertaining, informative and timely. And posting some great photography.  That's what we do here.

I created The Event Net page to make it easier for me, and you if you wish, to keep up with what's going on out there. I work in this industry and it's easy for me to come to one page for all the relevant news. For the latest news off the wires, visit the Event Net page.  As soon as the info hits the net, it hits the Event Net  page. I'll be adding feeds to this page from time to time.  If anyone has any suggestions here, let me know.

If you have a beloved eventing friend or four-legged partner that you'd would like to memorialize,  send me your story and a picture and I'll post it on the Down The Galloping Lane page. At least that's what I'm thinking it will be called...

I removed the calendar sidebar widget because it's too hard to keep up with. Besides, the same information is available from the great USEA website and those folks do a much better job than I could of keeping track of what we need to know.

If you have any suggestions, ideas, or comments, I'd really love to hear about them.  I can be reached by email at nan (at) eventingday (dot) com.  Sorry for the cryptic email address but I'm really sick of spammers. Use this address for sending any photos, video links, letters, posts, copy, etc.

Finally, let me close by saying that I love this sport.  I created this site to be my site about this sport.  It is my my window or soapbox to talk about and cover Eventing and other parts of the horse industry that I choose without being edited for content.  My spot for posting my talented friends' work -- work that might not be seen otherwise.  Great photos and articles are often never seen by any but their creator.  That's a shame.  So, I offer this space as a place to publish that great photo or well-researched article that no one bought.  

It's just my site. I've covered Eventing for more that twenty years and want to continue covering it for years to come...
