    I noticed that remark as well. He seems to really appreciate his horse. I would love to see Totilas and Valegro develop a rivalry with both of them at the top of their game.

    I agree, the H/J disciplines need more people like you instead of those horrible clients who only care about winning at any cost. It seems to me that an exception in a case such as yours would be...

    That is so sad. I only knew him by reputation but I know it is a great loss to the equestrian community, as well as his loved ones. It seems we are losing so many much too soon.

    As nice as the Hampton Classic? Those are in air conditioned trailers that flush, running water in the sinks, full length mirrors and nice soaps. It even smells nice! Rolex KY 3 Day Event also has...

    Have you tried fineusedsaddles.com? Patricia gave me an estimate based on my email stating the condition. Of course, that assumes I was truthful, which I was. And Patricia has a great reputation.
