    Unfortunately there are not very many "A" barns close to TO anymore as I have learned. Many of the farms have gone due to development and the few that remain are quite old. If you find one that is...

    I have to agree that any horse with jumper experience in Europe will still be "green" in the North American hunter ring. The discipline and riding style is different so the horses still need to...

    It is becoming more common and I think it is better to have more than a few rides to decide if the fit is right as it can sometimes take a few months for certain "quirks" to surface. I have found...
