    I'd first call nearby tack stores and ask if they have a person on staff who is a very good boot fitter and if they have a decent array of calf sizes on hand. Ask which custom dealers they deal with....

    I'm interesting in following as there was an incident in NY today involving a pickup truck and two mounted horses.

    I am a huge Beezie fan and this is part of the reason. She is a great ambassador for the sport on so many levels.

    If the hosting barn is run by an influential member or a board member, I can see why people would be concerned about asking. There always seem to be one or two barns which are above reproach and no...

    Fewer starts is often the result of Lasix. It was sold as a means of getting more starts out of horses but it so drains them that they need more time to snap back.

    Half chaps and paddocks boots are a far more versatile combination. Too be honest, inexpensive tall boots are most likely going to be less than comfortable until very broken in. OTOH, a decent pair...

    It might not be a great long term situation, but for a young trainer starting out, it is just that, a start. She gets to work at an established barn and might even be able to improve the place. A...

    I think that the Rafael is based on the DaVinci. It has a slightly more contoured ankle. I'm never tried their dress boots on but prefer the "foot feel" of the DaVinci because of the better quality...

    From horseman's perspective, I fully understand the "why," but the OP also makes a point. If the sport is to be expected to grow in popularity with "non show jumping" people, it could be considered...

    Are there any related breed clubs or associations in your area? Getting him out to clinics and shows will help, but for a "niche" horse, sometimes you need to find a person already in that specialty....

    Europeans put youngsters into a program to get them ready to compete at 4 or 5. The structure there allows a young horse to get started and earn a show record and be appealing salable prospects by...

    She has what I would consider "old" breeding. Seeing Princequillo in the 4th generation is quite rare nowadays and in fact her dam is inbred 3x4 to him, which I would consider very good.

    It's usually not a matter of disagreeing, but with not wanting it pointed out.

    That horse is for sale for almost 7 figures and an announcer says, "yes, he usually goes in that crazy bit and in...

    IMO, both. The WB types don't have the stamina to go that fast, that far and the courses are now too technical to be ridden at the speed expected. A technical fence (or complex) requires that the...

    I didn't see last week so I will to defer to those more up to speed on the change of commenters.

    I wish they'd hire me to produce the broadcasts.
    For one thing, there is a tendency when doing...

    In this era of very specific media, the traditional "general audience" doesn't exist. In a specialty sport, it used to be that there was the assumption that the average TV sports viewer might not...

    If that trainer's "stamp of approval" makes the horse appealing to a buyer at double the price, why not? Retailers routinely double the price of wholesale. If the pro buys a horse, they take on a...

    I am so sad about his passing. He was a kind man and always treated me so well. I loved it when I ran into him at Clare Court, on his pony or in later years in his cart. The only time I was ever late...

    In the TB world, many mares are hobbled or have a foreleg lifted. There simply isn't time for wine and roses and that bothers some mares. Some stallions are aggressive and a mare might be inclined to...

    The new HDR's come with a pre-oiled leather and are pretty grippy. The seat seems a bit wide (compared to maybe a Pessoa) but very soft. IMO, they are comparable to a Circuit, but closer in "new...
