Rothchild Was The Little Horse Who Could At The World Games

He’s a little guy, and when he picks up canter and throws in a buck he looks more like he should be heading in for a children’s jumper round than an international one.

It’s hard to marry the image of McLain on stylists like Sapphire with that of him on the scrappy Royal Belgian Warmblood who goes around the ring with his ears permanently pinned. But if you’ve watched Rothchild fight for McLain over the years, you know it’s impossible not to fall in love with him.

What’s Your Derby Finalist Style?

If you’re a Chronicle fan, you already know who the top contenders are for this year’s USHJA International Derby Championships, and you’ve probably already picked your favorite among the regular winners. You don’t need me or anyone else to argue why you should join Team Brunello, root for Jersey Boy for a second consecutive win, or cheer on Inclusive.

What's In A Name?

Ponies are cute. They’re fun. They’re alternately saintly and naughty. And more often than not, they’re too smart for their own good. 

The names of the sub-14.2 hand set tend to reflect a certain playfulness, and chances are, they’re selected to make you smile. Some names are really memorable (Daddy Pulled The Trigger, Kowabunga Kitty or Weebiscuit, anyone?) and some are rider appropriate (Jennifer Blossom rides Flower Girl and Forget Me Not).
