    I have the same size foot and the Tredstep 36 worked great. If you have to get an insert for the foot, the tall and regular calf is worth it. Fits better than my customs. I got the dress boots....

    Importing to NY is about 12K these days for a gelding. Then there is transport to wherever you are located. My advise to you is not to look until you are ready to buy, and be patient. The right...

    I am going to suggest that if you find a racing stallion you really "have to have" do not hesitate to inquire as to whether he will stand for a sport horse mare. There are many reasons why some TB...

    Consistency will come if you do the same warm up at home that you do at shows...including doing the test, or some parts of it, at home too. At the very least, warm up and go down a center line, and...

    I have had a Tapit gelding. He was very one-dimensional--his way or not at all.
    Not sure that's typical, but there you have it. I won't go there again.
