From Melanie:

Every time I go to a horse show my stomach flip flops with butterflies, full disclosure – to date I’ve only shown at schooling shows. With all the wonderful equine products on the market, why hasn’t someone invented a cure for nerves and stomach butterflies? Wait, I think they have! Is Pepto Bismol available by the gallon?
