    I had to laugh at my partners reply to someone who asked him what he does during the off-season (he's a huntsman, and Irish ;) ). Without a moment's hesitation he said "oh I'll just take the...

    A friend of ours hunts a pack in Virginia and he's almost beside himself with no hunting! Hard to sympathize with him though, having never ridden in snow in my life. In fact I've only ever been to...

    Not sure of the exact reason he was struck off, but I know that in the past I've had odd pm's from that guy. Couldn't help wondering if he had maybe been bothering others as well. In which case, no...

    We've just been discussing this on a horsey fb group today, and I have a built-in storage cupboard in the nose of my float which works really well. Fits 2 saddles, 4 hooks for bridles etc, and also...

    He is a friend of ours and we had this conversation about martingales when he stayed here with us this year. He said he much prefers a well-fitted standing.

    The Middleburg huntsman (who is Irish) much prefers a standing martingale. Just wondered if he was the one referred to above.

    I hunted for a month in Ireland, with several different hunts, and never once saw a plaited horse! Including the huntsman's horse. North Tipperary and Ormond mainly.

    Oh wow Beverley! You have the Sunbeam clippers in the States too? I bought my first set about 1979, and still have them. They're strong as an ox ... much heavier and noisier than the more modern...

    Riding the Irish drains is very simple. Not easy, but simple! Mostly done from a standstill or very slow walk. I believe there is really no way to do it nicely ... just sit tight, look up, and...

    Excuse my ignorance, but what is the hound truck? And what does it do? Over here, it's simply the truck we use to transport our horses and hounds to the meet. Obviously more to it over there :)
