    I finally got to read this article and a lot of it made perfect sense to me. No, not the latter half about riders in Eastern Europe.

    Hi BarbB - I am with you.
    That's why I liked the show on Animal Planet, "Trail Mix". If you did not see it, it was just stories (interviews) of celebrities riding their horses.

    And a general vent:
    Linda Allen is right - the professional is the customer. Frankly, I am curious how they attract clients today - after all, they have to have clients to end up as a customer of...

    HI Yankee - your little rider is very cute.
    I think you have a lot of good feedback here. From the jumping photo, it does look like a shorter stirrup would help. I agree with the posters who...

    For what this rider may end up wanting to do, this might be a very nice fit. Sounds like a simple horse - not difficult to work with, but not really too capable either. Think of this:

    1. I want borders who are showing and taking lessons on a regular basis (WITH ME). That is what my barn was designed for, that is why I have a nice ring with jumps...

    I would be interested to know exactly how "liability" plays in here. I honestly do not think this is factual- I think it gets cited as an easy element since it's hard to check. This may be an...

    I think this has gotten a little off track. The person was spotted, the steward was notified, and the show manager should have called the police and had WH escorted off the grounds and told not to...

    Feds are on this one in more areas than Chicago. Two people in the Phoenix area were arrested yesterday as part of this operation. In one case, this apparently ties back to a murder in the Phx area...

    Just finished "Outfoxed". I kind of like these books (I'm adding "HotSpur") - they are like a series (quite typical for mystery writers). For people who know little about foxhunting, I think the...
