    You're no antique unless you're 90 or so! In the 60's it was mostly pelhams in hunters. There was often need for a little more brakes then, as you had uphill/downhill outside courses, and much more...

    It wasn't that the boots were "one height fits all." Fancy schmantzy custom boots were that height as well. You used garters and those went between the buttons on your breeches. Extra tall tall boots...

    Dress boots are always correct. Black field boots are a relatively recent invention of the horse show crowd. I cringe to see field boots and shadbellies. That's a formal dress with sneakers to these...

    Photo of McLain & ROthchild

    Sometime in the last few days there was a great photo of these two, both with their ears (well, figuratively for McLain) pinned back and going for it at Hickstead.

    What faraway says.
    It's probably true that our ( or anyone's) best riders got that way because they just knew. They feel it, and they feel it far enough out that adjustments are seamless. Without...

    It isn't OK to pat your horse in an eq class, but it is OK to drug them senseless?

    I'm sorry. And I'm a dinosaur. But what could be more inviting than a nice AA level hunter fence? Great groundlines, pretty fill, correct distances, not too big. If you (or your omniscient trainer)...

    All I know for sure is that when I put a 3/4 in piece of radiator hose on the stirrup bar ahead of the leather it made a big difference. You can try that and see if it helps for under a buck.

    That is the reason, and in 12 years of hunting I never saw or heard of anyone getting stabbed. Besides, what good does it do if you have a bandage/sling and no way to secure it?
