Throwback Thursday: Be Like Betty!

When George Morris saw our feature on Betty Oare this summer in the July 27 issue of The Chronicle of the Horse, he was struck by the classic style she displayed in this photo aboard Navy Commander and immediately called us to share his thoughts.

This picture of Betty Oare on Navy Commander—it’s like it’s from another planet from the pictures we see today. This is what the sport is all about.

Throwback Thursday: A Lesson In Arms

A photograph of the late Gen. Franklin “Fuddy” Wing Jr. inspired Chronicle columnist George H. Morris for an article in a 2009 issue of the Chronicle.

Needless to say, I couldn’t let this wonderful photo of Franklin Fearing “Fuddy” Wing Jr. and Democrat, nor the excellent article that accompanied the photos, “Democrat Jumped Into History,” (Jan. 2, p. 8), go unnoticed.

An Open Letter To High Performance Jumper Riders

Our columnist, the chef d’equipe of the U.S. show jumping team, takes a moment to address the country’s show jumpers about the upcoming challenges.

I like to write memos and directives. It is hard to see and talk to each and every one of you often. We are all spread out, although I think I know a good percent of you—more than you realize.

What we must not do, at this point, is rest on our laurels. The next quadrennium is most challenging and very, very important.

Three-Point Contact At A Gallop

One’s first impression of this wonderful photo—Beezie Madden riding Judgement at the 2008 Spruce Meadows Masters (Alta.) in the $937,867 CN International—is of “spit and polish.” Both horse and rider are scrupulously clean and turned out in a traditional and conservative manner.

Our International High Performance Program

Even after a golden performance at the Olympic Games, our columnist warns that we must not become complacent.

Just after the Spruce Meadows Masters in mid-September, Signe Ostby and her husband, Scott Cook, hosted a lovely fundraiser dinner party for the U.S. Equestrian Team Foundation at their home in Woodside, Calif.

About 50 people attended, lots of old friends and some new ones too—Jane Clark, Bonnie Jenkins, Mikey Murphy Hoag, Nonie Ramsey, and many others just to name a few.

The Pan Am Games In The Good Old Days

No, certainly not everything was better back then. And I’m going back some 50-odd years. And yes, some things are better today. But it was a time of simple, perhaps more altruistic values. The real interest in the horse as an individual, the history of the sport and a real study of the sport as an art.

Bert de Nemethy was not only a horseman of the highest class, but also a gentleman of the highest class. Those were the days when a social order was in place.
