    You really need to decide how much you want to spend, and, since you don't want to be there in the cold, how many months you do want to be there. Seaside or mountains? My housemaster from the 1970s...

    MY experience with Kottas, several years ago, in a two day clinic.

    The first thing he did was to say that my stirrups were uneven. So he lengthened the "shorter" one. A ringside horseman (a...

    I would visit barns and ask. Lots of them on the North Shore. If the Horseman's Yankee Pedlar is still published, see where the barns are. Or go to Dovers in Plaistow, or the tack store in Ipswich...

    I love mine. My jumping saddle was the first that I ever had which allowed me to float over the jump, rather than feeling that I first fell back and then fell forward. It was made for me and...

    Sounds as if the employer has a mental/medical issue. I would report it, dispassionately, because she needs help. How would he feel if she hurt someone and he had done nothing?
