Soup’s On!

Food and drinks are a life necessity that can be mundane or exotic. What we eat, when we eat and how we eat is both personal and generic; food can be creative, a backdrop to celebration, an expression of love to prepare, and a moment of mindfulness to consume.

With that in mind, Horse & Rider Living is dedicating space to the life necessity of food & drinks! Whether it’s a for eating around the campfire, a packed trail lunch, a holiday spread, or “just because”, we want you to send us your favorite food and beverage recipes, especially if they are equine-inspired (does it get more classic than a mint julep during Kentucky Derby season?). If there is a story behind the recipe, even better – we would love to hear it!
