Traditions are a way for certain practices to live on from one generation to the next. Every culture has traditions and many families do, too. There are certainly traditions that live within equestrian cultures, and maybe your barn family has a few that persist year after year.
Other traditions aren’t always affiliated with annual landmarks in the outside world. A barbecue to mark the last show of the season or a trip to a nearby horse-friendly beach every summer keep life at the barn interesting and fun.
