    Pikeur does make winter breeches. Softshell lined with warm fleece but they look like normal breeches. I love mine. I haven't seen them for sale in the US but they were easy to find online from...

    An Otherwise Perfect Farm in Upperco. I think Courtney Sendak/Defying Gravity Eventing is based there.

    I have a rolled double bridle made by FSS. Leather is very soft but quality is fairly poor. Dover's Crown bridles are also assembled in India from bridle leather from England & they are much better...

    Use as basically an "adjustable martingale". They don't come into action unless the horse's head is somewhere really inappropriate or dangerous. David O'Connor (I believe it was him anyway!) was once...

    California is the best place I've ever been in the US for dressage shows- the season is long, and most weekends there is a show within an hour (or two at most) of anywhere in the Bay Area,...

    When NZL team rider Tim Price tried not to retire a tired Wesko, the ground jury pulled him up. Still didn't complete.

    Growing up in CA, I had always tied my horse to the trailer. Everyone did the same at one day dressage shows, hunter/jumper shows, Pony Club rallies, trail rides, & XC schooling. (At events, most...

    Fingers crossed that Canada sneaks into the top 6 tomorrow. If they do, it will take a lot of pressure off the US at the Pan Ams, as Canada is usually our biggest competition at the Pan Ams. I know...

    That's great. I have an ancient computer (2006) & trying to watch the replay of this morning's dressage was an exercise in frustration. Watching live on my ipad has been great.

    In the freestyle, I thought Parzival put in a better test than Valegro. I wasn't the only one who thought this, and I think the scores were close. Normally I like Valegro better, but in that...

    Frank Sinatra didn't prefer Orville Redenbacher. I can't for the life of me remember what that stands for, but I remembered that a former student said that to her on the subway or something & she...

    The article said there would be small & medium tours for amateurs. Congrats on Devon- have fun!

    It might be a way to get people to do the medium tour- no one did the old int-II at CDIs.

    I have a fly sheet quarter sheet & it makes all the difference to my horse- without it, he gets mauled by bugs on the trail & is miserable, with it the bugs hardly bother him & he's a happy camper....

    Carlsbad, even south Carlsbad, is quite a schlep from Del Mar. Particularly during commute times or during the summer during the races or fair at Del Mar. If you are in south Carlsbad or La Costa,...

    Is there a coupon code for Horseloverz, or is the discount already reflected in the price?

    Tredsteps have very skinny ankles, even in the wider calf sizes. I had to go to a calf that was way too big to have barely enough room for my ankles to bend.

    I can think of 3 events in 3 different areas that used to have cross country fairly far away. In Area VI, Pebble Beach's XC course was about a 40 minute hack, trotting with some walking (and waiting...

    I bought a reddish girth on ebay & tried to darken it with olive oil. No change. So I got Fiebing's brown leather dye from Amazon. I used several coats. There's still a reddish undertone but...

    They were at the same barn. Same owner owns both horses, and Kevin McNab is or was Jock Paget's mentor. Even though they ride for different countries.
