Instead of 'cue-ing' him to canter, just *think* canter (when eventually you work back up to it.) He sounds sensitive and those horses are waiting for that command! Ride him as light as a feather....
No one monitors our hunt's Fb page. Call them or I bet someone on here can make an actual introduction for you!!
Did you call, or e-mail?
I know for a fact that 2 of our 3 joint-masters are not e-people. :) If I rely on e-mail for communication with them I'll be waiting for days/weeks for a reply.
Seriously???!!! You can't swing a dead cat without hitting 25 little private farmettes - no public barns? Still that nice riding trail system and everything too.
I had 2 adorable sisters at last week's summer camp session. They were sweet 8 and 10 year old home schoolers (from a big family) that live with military'ish parents in Fairfax Station, Virginia. ...
Need a lift?
Heading from Northern Virginia (near Marshall) to Millbrook, NY on Aug. 26-27. Return the same day, or next day.
Room for 1-4 horses north or southbound, plus lots of room for cargo...

Not a single person on here has seen (felt?) a "spirit"????!!!
Snow Hill, you mean the subdivision east of Warrenton, or ... ? :)

Trust me, folks. It has been determined where and when.

That the VEA now holds the PM license means that lots of dough is filtering into a dandy purse account. ...
Strawberry Hill was eliminated when the car track took over the old state fair.
Montpelier is in great shape. Foxfield is going good guns. Gold Cup/s have never been larger. The point to point...
You guys - the BRIEF shift to Maryland for the graded races is a POSITIVE thing, not negative.
The graded races will lose their grades if they take time off.
The track/s where...
It doesn't matter at all.
You can't see the shirt if you have on a stock tie.
If you believe your shirt will be 'seen' at a hunt tea afterwards, either slip on a tweed jacket or a cute sweater,...
