    This seems to be a common theme among many respected trainers: That prelim is the level to hang out a bit, fix whatever holes have made themselves known and make sure the horse is comfortable in his...

    As an amateur bringing along my own horse, struggling with my crappy riding skills and us learning the ropes together. His first event was at age 5, his last at age 15. A freak injury during a jump...

    I remember a Practical Horseman article with Phillip Dutton, probably written in 2000 or 2001 (I'm guessing for the May eventing issue) called "Four Star in Four Years" or something like that,...

    This stuff is pricey, but I like the way she incorporates the hair in either obvious or less obvious ways, so you can pick a piece that's sentimental to you but can look fancy at the same time:

    As always, GotSpots has got wisdom. Read and follow every word of that.

    Also, while it makes me sound cynical, having watched others go through this with the best of intentions, it does seem that...

    The only time I remember seeing human drug-testers at a competition was at Bromont years ago, testing Canadians. I've never seen it stateside.

    Leaf Pit at Morven, probably, or (because I despise bounces), the downhill vertical bounce on the Southern Pines advanced course, with a drop on the second element.

    Oh, I was hoping for creative ideas to make keepsakes. My top hat came second-hand from a friend, having been her grandfather's opera hat. It squashes down flat so that it's owner can sit on it while...

    I have never seen a rider get eliminated over a shoulder-tap based on the JJ's interpretation of the rider's intent (reprimand or encouragement). I really wouldn't worry too much about this. JJ's and...

    Bump - we've had a dressage scribe cancel, so we're now looking for one of those as well as XC jump judges. Please consider volunteering!

    I actually overbought several Griffin Nuu-Med hi-wither pads when I was in the UK last time. I think I have a half pad, and full (full cotton pad, sheepskin under the saddle area only) XC and D pads...
  14. Plantation Field needs volunteers this weekend

    Plantation Field is looking for volunteers to help with our horse trials this coming weekend, June 7 and 8. We especially need help in the jumping phases.
    Perks for volunteering include entry into...

    It is different, though. Athletes do not smoke or eat giant triple cheeseburgers WHILE contesting their athletic events, so editors don't need to choose between covering the news and promoting their...

    JER, your idea makes plenty of sense in theory, but if you were to run EN, what would it look like in practice to you? Would you refuse to publish photos of people not wearing helmets in that photo,...

    Don't hold your breath. I can think of several confirmed top-hatters who, before participating in this video, signed on years ago to endorse the Riders4Helmets campaign ... and continue to don their...

    Hi friends,
    We've got a big weekend coming up in the Unionville, Pa., area -- Mother's Day, steeplechase races just down the street, Jersey Fresh going on not-too-far-away ... and with all that,...

    If you want play-by-play coverage, go online to USEF network. From what I saw, I thought they did a decent job of translating eventing for the general public and introducing some of the current key...

    I've been looking for information about who won Best Conditioned at Rolex and can't find it anywhere. A journalist friend who was there just told me they've paired down the awards and she didn't...

    Sarah, you took the coolest pic of my OTTB and I years ago at Jersey Fresh. I love his expression in it. It's still on your Flickr feed (and he's still in my barn, albeit 21 and retired now) and I'd...
