    Another safety musing & an incident

    I was looking thru the FEI yellow card list on the FEI website and was suprised to see so many professionals on it. Including top pony riders and young riders. They are being caught riding tired horses, abuse of horses, incorrect behaviour and dangerous riding. It seems crazy that our...

    So sorry I know everyone must sigh when they see a how much post but I find it so hard to put prices on event horses, so I thought I would ask you guys. Infact, I won't post it if it drives everyone mad but if anyone does want to help me out then perhaps I could PM you? Would that be...

    Mr Fox-Pitt

    Now being an avid 'pro mares eventing' person I am incredibly jealous and suprised to see William is eventing not one but two rather lovely mares.
