    It's not condescending to correct the facts. Luckily, there are readily available records we can check:

    It is simply not correct to say that Sinead and Allison did not compete in "over three...

    I'd put together a firm contract that sets out what your trainer is responsible for in marketing, showing the horse, arranging vetting, etc., and that lays out the commission. I've seen 15% sales...

    My older horse had done four long format * and ** events and gone advanced but had never broken 40 in the sandbox when I bought him to do a one star. To this day, some 80 career events later...

    I've always had more than enough to do at Gordonsdale - you can set up combinations with the ditch if you need to and the water has some good questions. Some of their bigger portables are more than...

    You can always say "if only." Looking at those photos (great sequence, by the way), I'm more struck by the problems starting well before he slips: he lands very shallow from the hanging log and...

    I think they're both great, but very different. I really really like Jan for show jumping, particularly for a tune up or trying to sort through an issue with a horse. Will has a different style but...

    The footing and facility at the new venue is absolutely gorgeous. I've walked around it as they contemplated the layout, and I think it's going to be just a lovely, lovely event.

    We had a great experience with Lost Dog Rescue - they were friendly and very easy to work with and our pup has been exactly what we were looking for. CityDogs Rescue in DC also seemed great.

    I think the Devoucoux fits some horses great but is a no go for others. I love love love pry-it-out-of-my-cold-dead-hands-love mine on my older horse. Couldn't stand it on one I was riding over the...
