    Polydor--it was a great event! The weather was HOT on Thursday! Much nicer on Friday and on Saturday, the rain held off until (unfortunately) just when the 4* division started. Show jumping day...

    What fun! This sounds very much like when I got my OTTB mare. She was older (8) and she was off the track for a while (not much had been done with her so she was just out of shape and unschooled)....

    With my horses, it seems to depend on age and breed. All of mine get blanketed when it gets cold. My young horse stays slick all winter (people say she looks like a seal). Her hair gets thicker,...

    I am looking for a used jump saddle and I took one on trial from a local tack store. The saddle seems to fit my horse pretty well. she went well in it. I really liked it too. However, it's an 18"...
