Thanks a bunch Sandy M! You made me get out my Jay Trump book by Peter Winants. Then I stayed up most of the night rereading it. What made me look was that you said he was 17.2. I saw almost all of...
This drove me to Google. He did compete on a pony ,but quit riding when he started skating at 11-12. Maybe he was one of the original hunter princesses?
I did just dash this off to NBC.
"I'm pretty sure you wouldn't sent Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski to cover the Masters Golf or Wimbledon. How dare you insult the horse racing game by sending them...
Battleship by Dorothy Ours is a good read.
Someone (actually, several people) mentioned transparency. OK. SevenDogs, who are you?
For what it's worth, The grey horse who has been withdrawn from second inspection is Dambala, who had only time penalties.
Great coverage at the price, but I own Collection Pass's half brother, and I bet we don't see him at all. Bummer.
Because, for men, ultra formal hunting attire is a black or pink tailcoat with white breeches and brown topped dress boots.. For women it is a black coat with tan breeches and patent leather topped...
Maybe, just maybe, this person either 1.) is seriously into tradition rather than into fads 2.) thinks that the flapping tails are a distraction or 3.)thinks the whole question is too "high school"...
Let go of the "hunting tradition" argument. I hunted with one of the most formal hunts in the country for about a decade. In that time I saw two women with shadbellies. The shadbellies only showed up...
I agree with this. 2'6" looks pretty darn big on a green doofus of any size. 4" not so much between the ears of a nice 14H. Size has nothing to do with it.
latest news I found on Balthazar King. Optimistic for a good outcome.
Big Dee's nylon race bridle $15.95, cavesson from $3.
Good colors, machine washable, indestructible. Ride in the rain and hose your horse off with impunity. Guaranteed to drive your trainer over...
Has anyone where this will be televised? Or streamed?
I don't mind the braided ponytail. At least she is wearing her helmet correctly. The loose and glamorous I don't like as much. I find it as distracting to watch as the flopping tails of shadbellies...
Plus you should feel pretty awful if that happened.
I'm getting to watch this one for the first time on my computer with our new fiber optic connection!
Seating: in front of my monitor on my office chair
Food: On demand from my kitchen.
If you choose to take the high road and dump your vintage helmet, please be sure to cut the chinstraps off. If it isn't good enough for you, it isn't good enough for anyone else.
Thank you. .02. So close.
For those of us whose internet is too slow to watch, who were the top 5? Ascarazza
As long as someone keeps Jimmy Duggan for the jumping races, I'm OK with change.
have you looked at Home Away?
No need to be nasty. You can still have the Maclay competition without ASPCA. Times, and most likely, the ASPCA, have changed since 1933. Apparently they donate the trophy. No need to remove Mr....
USEF snuggles up with ASPCA for the Maclay competitions. How is this any worse? Pretty soon we'll have the PETA NAtional Horse Show and the HSUS Hunter Derby Finals. Money shouts.
Edit: I hadn't...
I have one. He's 18 now and I've been jumping him regularly for 13 years.The only issue I had was saddle fit, but that's ok now. On the plus side, gravity is on your side. He's much less...
