Horses that are severely allergic to wood: Part 4

  Some horses are more careful jumpers than others. But there are overachieving mounts that seemingly defy the laws of gravity while jumping. Maybe it is because they are allergic to wood or perhaps, they are trying to avoid getting eaten a monster that could be lurking under the fence. These horses’ riders might want to wear a spacesuit during their next jump school because their steeds are jumping to the moon…   No scope, no hope. #noscopenohope #twisterdance511 has been really hot this days. I don't know why. But in 2 weeks he will have some weeks off. #QOTD…

Why Eventing NEEDS schooling events

  Eventing is a tough sport to start competing in compared to other riding disciplines. There are three very different, but equally important phases that you and your horse have to be able to master. With each of these three phases, comes a completely different set of rules. Some new eventers are fortunate to be partnered with a mount that has been there and done that.

How to improve your cross-country riding by thinking like a Course Designer

  How often do you hear riders while looking at fences while walking cross-country say “What was the course designer thinking?” Not often enough. The job of course designers is to design questions that riders of that level are able to answer. They are not evil human beings who thrive off of setting up fences that are nearly impossible to jump just to trick out innocent riders. Course designers really want their courses to ride safely, give both horses and riders confidence and promote excellent riding. I attended the two-day Equine Canada 2015 Senior Course Design Forum with Mike Etherington-Smith…
