    asterix, I understand what ICP is trying to do, really. But I don't volunteer for the clinics anymore. Luckily that pony was pretty tough to fluster and came out none the worse for wear, she was...

    I have exactly one story when I ever permitted anyone to be nasty to me while on my own horse. Years ago, the farm I boarded at in college used to host ICP instructor clinics. My pony was a solid...

    My 14.2 hand pony evented intermediate in Small sized NEW boots. Yes, I did order them special from England (for some reason US stores only stock M and L?) but they fit her short little cannons...

    So boring, but I think I'm set. The three horses I own event(ed) as Chablis, Madeira, and Cava. Apparently they 100% meet hunter rules as being one word and alcoholic beverages! (Madeira is...

    Nope. I took my 14.2 pony Intermediate. Considering there is no "official" measuring in eventing like there is for a pony card in the USHJA, I don't even know how they would reinforce it. I assume...
