    In our hunt, you use what your horse needs, within reason. While I haven't seen anyone out in a half pad, I don't think they'd be sent home for coming out in one. From what I recall, natural colored...

    So sorry for your loss. I know it's easy for me to say, but please don't be too hard on yourself. We had a mare who was fine one minute, then down with a weird colic in which she had a big hunk of...

    I don't think I addressed the dress code issue. We'll be in formal season in December, but for newbies, if you have a black show coat that's heavy, that would be fine. Of course, if it's truly cold...

    Yes, newbies are certainly welcome. There will be a third field - I checked with the masters and it's a go. I hunt in the second field myself (the pony jumps way better than I do). So there are...

    Lots of good advice here. :-) Since your horse is young, this is the perfect time to start yourself out on a seasoned hunt horse. The best horses, you just put a nickel in their ear and go...

    Someone who loves me for me and who keeps up his end emotionally and financially. That's it in a nutshell. Looks, yes, that's important, but character is more important.
