Will Mike be able to resist taking it off again?   WARNING: Only read if you have a sense of humour Check in every Tuesday for our Top 10 list that could feature just about anyone…

The beginning of the end, a slap on the wrist and WHY is it ALWAYS raining?

Back by popular demand Eventing fan and follower, Christa Dillon, shares more of her Eventing experiences. With her notorious sense of humour she brings a colourful take on Eventing.  WARNING: Uncensored language. But all in fun. I grew up horse mad. Diseased with the poxy things. All I could think of was eventing-I remember (vaguely) watching the greats of yesteryear tackling Badminton, and building my own Badminton in granny’s back yard with her clothes props and flower pots. It was many years before I got a chance to partake in a real event with an actual horse, but when my time…

Hockey family meets Eventing

The NHL playoffs are going on full force right now, bringing some family members and friends closer together and tearing other relationships apart. All Canadians (and some Americans) know how passionate people are about hockey and although eventers are equally as passionate about Eventing, they tend to be more stoic at competitions.

Horse shopping – lost in translation
