Call Jean at Horse Country, they have someone that could do it I believe (cannot recall her name) and when can I see the new jacket? Congratulations, it sounds LOVELY!
It is my understanding that sadly, no, three-buckle are not technically proper wear for ladies in the hunt field. (from someone in-the-know at the The Middleburg Tack Exchange, VA)
J, those Casanova evening rides should be a HIT - I find it infinitely preferable to hack out in the summer dusk where with each stride, the temperature is dropping.
Weekday summer rides are nice...

Forgot to link, the event at "Bobby Lee's" this weekend:
Heard there are foxhunters w/4 in hands from PA etc.
Would love to hear about MD and PA rides; hear that GSV has a good program as does Cheshire. Never know where one might be visiting!
Fair Hill in upper MD is on my agenda for some riding, as...
Diesel is killing me too. I have reluctantly cut back and am planning on staying closer to home as well.
How about I leave a summer trail pony at your place and you can leave one at...
Thanks for the heads up on Rock Hill - just lovely country and a favorite fixture to ride out from. Hate to miss it but might have to.
Busy weekend; Sat is Mother's Day and the Arboretum...
I try to keep close tabs on them all but it is difficult as there is no central place where they are all listed. The Fauquier Times used to have a weekly column that listed them (it was wonderful!)...
Jim Culleton was a popular and immensely colorful MFH who introduced many people to the sport of foxhunting here in Virginia with his beloved pack black and tans, and also with the Abington Hills...

"If you want to bring your horse out to "see" the start of the hunt, but not actually go out hunting, there certainly shouldn't be any problem with that. You will be expected to pay the cap,...
PS - B's reins were corded cotton, much preferable to X's which were nylon and I would guess could get slippery.
Thanks again Bev.
Thanks for the link Beverly - might be able to improvise with those.
In the meantime, will treasure highly the old pair I still have....
Black or brown boot polish can still be found - sorry I failed to clarify that I am looking for the (currently not being made I fear) creme boot conditioner in a bottle.
Anyone ever see these for sale anywhere any more?
The off- white linen-looking ones. A long-time favorite of mine.
And has Vogel bootpolish resurfaced by chance?
All of know of for certain thus far are:

Farmington Hunt March 5, 2011
Rappahannock October 30, 2010
Heard a rumor VAHW is happening again this year but nothing up on the website as of yet - anyone else know anything? Also, the FHC is definitely being held - does anyone know any of the hosting...
Thanks for the input.
Does anyone know how many of these farms breeding draft cross sporthorses are still operating in Canada? I have heard at one time that the PMU ranches numbered in the hundreds, but that now there...
