    I don't have any real program-specific advice, I will leave that to better riders and trainers than I. I would say, however, don't underestimate the value of hacking out with your greenie, both in...

    I find that the Smartpak Solstice Winter paddock boot fits quite wide. I bought a pair of these over the Winter because my Ariats weren't keeping my feet very warm, and I just kept wearing them...

    I rode in my new Royal Rider stirrups for the first time tonight and I have to say that I'm in love! Jumping didn't hurt my ankle and my foot stayed put in the stirrups. The ankle was such a...

    Well, you work up to the amount of stretch in the video. The important thing with the stretch where your knee is on the ground below your chest is to move the stretch around from hip, to knee to...

    I went with the Wentworth hunt in New Hampshire, who added a Spring cubbing season this year. It was so much fun, I don't know why I don't go more often when I'm invited. My horse had a blast too. As...
