    This is just tragic--how sad for all involved. My sympathy to the owner and supporters of this horse. The physics of speed + heavy, live weight is just not on our side when something fails on your...

    There's a saying my dressage trainer has used in reference to this stage of a horses development: "They have to get heavier before they can get light". Meaning that you will have to go through a...

    When I got my first mare--I had the same question. People had told me all kinds of awful stories of how she might behave when in heat. At one point (in June) I took her to an event for the weekend....

    What everyone else has said--1/2 draft crosses have such a high variability in how they turn out! The horses that *I* have evented are all lighter type horses (my OTTB and a Tb / Trak cross) and I...
