    I'm with those who don't jump many fences before heading into the ring. I do a nice flat, jump one or two just to see how my mare is feeling, then either walk until it's our turn if she's settled,...

    A segue, but I do love that line. I can't count the number of times I've repeated it under my breath as I've hurtled across a field on the back of a bouncing horse! :)

    I think they meant how uncannily alike they were behaviourally. In the video, Mary talks about how one of the colts flaps his lips like Cruising, and how they both have other little personality...

    For what it's worth, up here in the Great White North, running martingales have always been allowed in hunter over fences classes, but just never seen in recent history. I always thought that if I...

    I'm in the camp that says to wear the coat you like, as long as it's not totally unorthodox! One of my favourite coats for very sentimental reasons is a medium weight wool jacket that belonged to my...

    I'm less than well endowed, so can't comment how they run through the chest. I wear a small or medium in most shirts, and wear a stretch 6 or a regular fabric 8. If it helps, I'm about 38" around...

    Hot port - I was suspicious, but politely tried it in Ireland when we went hunting, and it was shockingly good! I'm pretty sure it was just hot water, sugar and port, easy-peasy.
