Humidity, specifically in conjunction with heat, can limit our bodies ability to regulate temperature There are steps you can take to assist in this process including clothing choices and hydration. This topic is on the forefront or importance as many competitors and spectators plan for prestigious finals in August including the USEF Pony Finals, the USHJA Green Hunter Incentive Championship and the USHJA International Hunter Derby Championship.

Street to Stable® first published the story of fine artist, Donna Bernstein, exactly one year ago. Her signature style features the energy of horses coupled with their gestural and anatomical accuracy.
Ms. Bernstein has traditionally reserved showing her pieces in galleries and their corresponding shows and exhibitions. This past April she enthusiastically navigated the logistics of shipping her large canvases and introduced several pieces directly to the international show jumping world at the inaugural Longines Masters of New York.
Below you will find a compilation of our interview from last year sharing Ms. Bernstein's artistic process and extensive background along with her recent impressions of attending her first international show jumping competition as both a spectator and featured exhibition.
For almost a decade, Erin Gilmore has been employed by various startup outlets to help grow their reach, depth, and credibility as news sources in the hunter/jumper world. Her roles have included, but are not limited to, editor, writer, reporter, and workflow manager. Her career has taken her to a dozen countries to cover elite events and visit some of the most prestigious farms connected to equestrian sport. During this time, she also became well known for her work behind the lens for the photos she captured that were published both in print and online.
At the end of last year, Erin made the brave decision to use her "toolbox" of finely honed skills developed over many years to create her own business, Erin Gilmore Photography. Whether you are fascinated by the transition from employee to entrepreneur, the art of equine photography, or becoming a client and booking a portrait session, this is a story about an authentic equestrian that will captivate you.
