Through the AI they use, they know more and more about us by analyzing our online behavior. These social media companies use (abuse this information. E-Sports don’t have levels of play like this (sure there’s the CAL and CPL but it doesn’t work the same way). Either you are competing or you’re not.

As I often tell friends, “this was our one crazy moment!” So we were by no means experts in European horse shopping and certainly not horse brokers. Therefore, we had to become thoroughly educated prior to our visit. I found to my disappointment, that there were few if any helpful guides on the internet and basically only brokers offering to find a horse for you. I forgot to mention also the older, broken down horses that have spent their lives teaching little kids to ride, bringing their owners to show, working every day for their owners that can’t anymore.
