  7. Spin-off on Pedigree help thread: DNA Parentage testing with known sire / dam

    Sorry---this may be an easy to answer question, but I have not done this before so it is new to me! I bought a filly last year that the breeder did not register and didn't take to the inspection. ...

    I have seen some really nice added touches that add some flair to the "Lawyers on Horseback" look that the dressage attire tends to have.

    That being said---I also do eventing and there are always...
