“My Snow Day Philosophy: How Horses Have Taught me to Expect the Worst but Hope for the Best”

2:00 to 3:15 PM

A lifetime of working with horses turned into a professional eventing career that has taken Lynn Symansky all over the world. Her experiences at the top of the sport have taught her to develop a “snow day philosophy.” Join Lynn as she shares insights into her snow day philosophy, her own experiences in riding, rising through the professional ranks, training, teaching, and navigating an equestrian business and lifestyle. From instilling confidence to admitting defeat, preparing for disappointment to soaking in success, and just putting your head down and doing your job – Lynn has advice that will resonate with equestrians of all ages, experience, and disciplines.
