    Signs its time to retire?

    I have an (almost) twenty year old Oldenburg who has had an active show career. I got him when he was 14 and he's been great to learn with - really nurses me over jumps and has impeccable timing....

    I do like the new Majyk Equipe boots I just saw at Rolex. My friend told me about them a few months ago but...
