SSL Certificates 101

Have you been browsing online and recently noticed in your address bar that the words "secure" or "not secure" pop up before displaying the URL for the site you're visiting? That is due to the new widespread implementation of SSL certificates.  

"Whether you are an individual or a company, you should approach online security in the same way that you would approach physical security for your home or business. Not only does it make you feel safer but it also protects people who visit your home, place of business, or website. It is important to understand the potential risks and then make sure you are fully protected against them. In the fast-paced world of technology, it is not always easy to stay abreast of the latest advancements. For this reason it is wise to partner with a reputable Internet security company." (Symantec)

So what exactly is an SSL Certificate? "An SSL certificate is a digital computer file (or small piece of code) that has two specific functions:

1. Authentication and Verification: The SSL certificate has information about
the authenticity of certain details regarding the identity of a person, business or
website, which it will display to visitors on your website when they click on the
browser’s padlock symbol or trust mark (e.g., the Norton™ Secured Seal).

2. Data Encryption: The SSL certificate also enables encryption, which means that
the sensitive information exchanged via the website cannot be intercepted and
read by anyone other than the intended recipient. "

Here at MLE we work hard to stay up-to-date on all of the latest not only for our website clients but for our Search Engine Marketing clients as well. To learn more about SSL certificates and whether you might need one, visit this informational PDF from Symantec at: https://www.websecurity.symantec.com/content/dam/websitesecurity/digitalassets/desktop/pdfs/whitepaper/beginners-guide-to-SSL-certificates_WP.pdf

Working Students Wanted!

MLE Clients are in the market for working students! If you are thinking about becoming a working student or have always wanted a position at a barn, take a look at the ads below!

Courtney Cooper, C Square Farm
Courtney Cooper and the C Square Farm team are back in Pennsylvania after enjoying a very successful winter season in Aiken and we are looking forward to competing extensively in Area II. We are looking to add another working student (or two!) to our program. Preference is given to individuals wanting to stay for a minimum of 6 months who are looking for a rigorous, educationally geared apprenticeship.

Our working students learn about training, sales, horsemanship, and breeding, and they also get plenty of opportunities to compete and ride themselves. Our winter working students brought home several blue ribbons of their own, (one is actually 3rd in the country on a horse C Square Farm lent to her) in addition to attending top events such as Carolina International.

We value our working students and treat them as members of our team with regular lessons, regular riding, days off, board for their horse and housing in a new, beautiful, and safe apartment complete with WIFI.

In addition to the benefits listed above we also do team dinners, and have our working students watch lessons with Courtney and top pros, including Boyd and Silva Martin and Richard Picken. We also strive to teach our working students life lessons; such as goal setting and planning for their future and are happy to stay involved with them individually after leaving our program.

If you are interested in joining this enthusiastic working student program, email your resume and riding video to csquarefarm@gmail.com.

Outsourcing Your Web Development!

Hi businesses and entrepreneurs!

As you probably already know "in times, when everything is done online, there is no doubt that design matters' when it comes to websites. 'And if your company doesn’t have the right people to create a website your customers will love, you better consider outsourcing. Because you don’t want to lose customers over a poorly designed website, do you? (Quibit.com)"

So you might be wondering who exactly do you need to create a beautiful new site? Well first, there are website designers. Their primary jobs are to create the layout, graphics, text, and navigation of the site.  It also helps to have the assistance of a graphic designer whose main job is to take care of graphics, colors, and fonts. Lastly there are website developers who write the code or modify an existing template or theme to implement your design.

Starting a new website and putting your brainchild into existence can be overwhelming and daunting, but it doesn't have to be! Thankfully here at Mythic Landing Enterprises we have a website designer/developer and a graphic design artist on staff to help with all of your needs. We also take out the guesswork and make communication easy by having one of our account representatives be the main point of contact and go-through person so things can stay simple and easy.


If you are looking for a fresh, functional new website but don't know where to start, then contact us today!  We are happy to have a free consultation and discuss how to turn your website dreams into reality.

Welcome to Team MLE: Solaris Stable & Yoga Studio

We're excited to send a warm welcome to our most recent client, Angela Nunez of Solaris Stable & Yoga Studio! Solaris isn't your typical stables and yoga studio as they offer many specialized classes and programs! Located in Hume, Virginia Solaris Stable offers high-end, full care boarding, training and lessons. They also provide equine facilitated learning classes and retreats in addition to their natural horsemanship programs.

The Solaris Yoga Studio offers classes for both equestrians and yogis alike! From Hatha Yoga to Yoga with Horses, they do it all! Angela also developed Horse Yoga, combining her two biggest passions into one practice that unites horse and human. Horse Yoga increases trust between horse and human, and increases balance, flexibility, strength, and breath awareness and control of the rider. Horse Yoga also massages the horse’s withers, back, and hindquarters, providing benefits similar to those of Equine Massage and Chiropractic work.

Angela started out as a website client but now we're thrilled to also help Angela with her search engine presence and marketing!
