    Caroline Kennedy's Macaroni pony lived on the White House grounds for a time. It would have been just like Jackie to hitch the pony and go for a sleigh ride (presuming it was harness-trained, though...

    Develop the leg cue FROM the seat bone - the slight positional change of the seat bone will move the thigh and the overall influence of the leg, giving you a lighter horse, and superb basic work for...

    Regarding the Little House series, that's a good point about Pa moving them from point to point, but since a good number of my ancestors had the same itchy foot, I don't totally blame him. My...

    I think it looks like a steam iron. It is a cool looking trailer, though, but I've never been privileged to see one.

    I'm surprised that there hasn't been a bunch of people already post this - it's a Phillips officer's saddle, a McClellan variation, that was probably what a lot of the early Army show jumpers used. ...

    Mine did not come with a mohair cinch. It is made of tail hair and so prickly that I'm sure it was never used. I know it's authentic because it has all the markings, the hardware, etc., and my...

    It's an original, as it has the original hair cinch. My McClellan came with the hair cinch, which became a wall-hanger, as it is too harsh and stickery to use, as well as questionable in strength...

    That unlikely position is exactly what I like about it. As for just standing in the stirrups, remember, that is a fraction of a second in the middle of a ride. An instant later the horse was in a...

    Since this is a staged event, and there's another photographer in the distance, I bet the dirt bike is either hauling another photographer on the back, or is there as a safety person/bull deflector...

    Babygoose, that isn't the right one, though I did look at that series last night to make sure. That one's a team roper. My fave is a calf roper and his horse is bogging his head while the well...

    The difficulty of selling the gently used saddles and other oddball things (as far as Amazon.com is concerned) is getting the eyeballs to look at them. Few go on Amazon.com to shop for tack, but...

    Having done it by accident a time or two, I'd never do it on purpose. Ever. I'm sure it was just a "hold my beer and watch this" stunt, as you couldn't do it safely on a regular basis. There's too...

    Too late on Keeping the Peace, but it's a good 'un. I got it free a few months ago and read it. Yes, it's a mystery romance, but it's well written and it kept my interest. I ditch a book within...

    I'm sorry for your loss. Memories are small comfort in a situation like this.

    There were some size choices in coffins, though this may not have been universal. There's an undertaker at the ghost town Bodie, in California, who stocked several sizes, from children's models on...

    Finished "On The Buckle," and it was definitely on the money! I really enjoyed it. Now to see if there's any others in the series.

    "On the Buckle," as mentioned above, is an exceptional book, at least so far. I'm at about the 20% mark and enjoying it thoroughly, though I would like to smack the heroine upside the head a few...

    You'd think there would be someone at Bonham's who could spell McClellan without having their hand held. Must have been written by an intern. It will be interesting to see what this brings.

    One race breeder that I bought a horse from years ago told us that they sold horses to one of the Indian relay teams, and because they were race-bred instead of res-bred, they won all the races. I...

    don't get a sherpa liner, as it will shed worse than a dog. I prefer to wear a polar fleece sweater/jacket under the drover coat, as it is a pretty chilly coat if you wear just the external layer.

    Pendleton Roundup has a full slate of Indian races, including bareback and relay. The bareback races are usually ridden in a backward seat, usually holding on for dear life, not in a jockey posture....
