I have one about the same age that I lovelovelove.
Though the roof does leak.
Otherwise, it is great.
I'll do it for you.
No, Conquests run very very wide - I just got a narrow (maybe even extra narrow) and it fits medium. The County rep will tell you.
I have 2 old Stabilizers (love them), one old Eventer (meh) and a...
I respectfully, but wholly, disagree with the ^^ assertion that 'Tb's are more unpredictable.'
On the contrary, they are so carefully bred (for sport - what is racing besides a sport?!) that they...
Wingo Star got up. Tennessee Bend was put down.
ODH hunts Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Somewhat randomly, attire is 'formal' on Tuesdays and Saturdays, and ratcatcher on Thursdays.
Formal attire is always correct, but the only way to...
Oh we got proper rain all right.
Absolutely the best racing, hands down, in the nation today.
Watch for my pix on fb later (tomorrow probably.)
I remember that day at MH p to...
It was incredible. Gorgeous course(s), amazingly competitive, great judging. A few did as the entry form said, 'ratcatcher, no braids' but there were plenty of braids and plenty of black and a few...
There's a far-away pic of me in that getup on 'page 2' of my 'photos' bar on my website, but its pretty far off so you can't really see the peach.
Sincerely, I get it that we want to be...
We're *hacking* over, naturally Dahling. 10 going out of here .... :)
OP and everybody
The 9/27 opening meet for the competition is at Poe's Run, also known as Julia's Bottom (tongue in cheek) across from Hunter's Rest.
Address would be North Poes Road, Flint Hill...
No one cares. Just tidy and conservative.
I think a lady looks partciularly cute in a men's tie and button down. I have a peach button down and a green tie, dark green show coat and rust breeches.
There could be 100 in the 3 fields.
They'll rock and roll, no matter what the sport. The judges have to have something to ... judge.
BTW, OP, Ardmore is 3/4 mile northeast of the 688/647...
OP Please not a velvet cover.
You. Look. Fine. In. The. Hunt. Field.
Well mounted, neatly attired, correctly turned out.
I get it that this has turned into a far broader chat but for goodness...
Oh I didn't realize it said informal.
Then I agree with SSR (who is the fount of all information plus a regular rider with PFH) - I'd say no braiding for certain.
This is the first one they've done, so not sure about your questions, historically.
Yes flat tack for sure, no figure 8's if you want a prize. (Though if you prefer to be able...
When they die, all Foxhunters will proceed directly to Hell.
Because they have already experienced Heaven on Earth.
If a grab strap slips up too much, I just latch it under one side of my breastplate. It moves the strap back a tad (the breastplate strap isn't in the right place to 'grab') but not so much that it...
I roach all mine. I think it looks so handsome.
Furthermore, the so-called "Rules" were invented BEFORE SCIENCE KNEW ANYTHING ABOUT BRAIN TRAUMA.
And more, the "Rules" were created to control the proletariat -- a bit like an all-covering burka...
If your hunt (which, ahem, I think is my hunt!) is more worried about which (black) cover you select for your helmet, rather than your tidiness, cleanliness, kindness, well-mannered, well-trained,...
Drat it - I can't go on the 16th (8 am from Foxhall Farm at the opposite end of my road) but I've contracted good substitute hilltoppers' leaders (and the farm owner/master will lead the jumping...
Superb day! Beautiful trails, and VAST IMPROVEMENT on a lot of the green horses (and not so green but out-of-practice horses) and I brought along a newbie rider, too!
She acted as...
No, no place for a crockpot, and, to be frank, no appreciation for 'special.' its just a chow-down and quick drink after riding. Special would go wholly under appreciated, if even noticed at all. ...
