    I find it odd that anyone would declare themselves a jumper but have apparently never seen a hunter before? I mean, these two things exist in the same world so you should have a general idea of...

    I got mine from Amazon.uk for that same price.

    And yes, it was just lovely. It was everything I wanted it to be. It's so not meaningful or heavy but it's well written and vivid and full of heart...

    I have the Wellfleet one (well the old style they put on clearance a few years ago) and I really like it. I would say it's about a half step down in quality from the Edgewood I had (if that makes...

    I refer to my tub of orange flavored bute as "the poison" because both of my horses have told me this is what it is.
