Forget no-stirrup-November. For many riders (**raises hand**) there is literally nothing scarier than trot jumps.  Unfortunately for us, according to 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games Team gold medalist and 2018 FEI World Cup Finals runner-up Devin Ryan, practicing trot jumps is important for a whole host of reasons—from building confidence in young horses to re-training older horses that may have developed a jumping issue.   “I believe that when you trot a jump, you can teach a horse to get to the base and still get out of their own way. I think it starts with young hor ..read more

Newly inducted Show Hunter Hall of Famer Jenny Karazissis has been notably absent from the show ring this year, after being sidelined by an injury in January. “It was quite a setback for me, so I didn’t really plan or have any big goals for this year because I just wanted to give myself time to heal,” said the Calabasas, CA native. Upon returning to the ring, she wasted no time jumping to the top of the leaderboard again, however. In her second show back, the Blenheim June Classic I in San Juan Capistrano, CA, Karazissis and Really took the win in the $35,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby o ..read more

On a Thursday afternoon at Thunderbird Show Park, Robert Blanchette is juggling. Blanchette, who runs the Salinas, CA-based Blanchette Equestrian alongside his wife Tammy, brought forward two FEI horses, a six-year-old and two derby horses for Thunderbird Show Park’s CSI3* Summer Fort Classic—plus the catch rides he picked up at the venue. His way of preparing for the $25,000 Foxstone Stables USHJA International Hunter Derby was to naturally jump the CSI3* $37,000 George & Dianne Tidball Legacy 1.45m. When he wasn’t in the show ring himself, he helped his wife coach their students. And per ..read more

Thirty-one competitors across professional, junior, and amateur ranks contested the Saturday evening’s $100,000 WCHR Central Hunter Spectacular at Flintridge Horse Park in Traverse City.

Brought to you by AIG: “We share your passions… and we’ll help you protect them.” Chances are, if you live in North America, you have a clearly defined vision of what show hunter sport looks like. If you’re watching Royal Windsor this week, then, you’re in for a bit of a surprise. The Working Hunter division has a very different interpretation in Europe. The hunter discipline originates from the actual hunt, and the Working Hunters at Royal Windsor not only resemble those roots—the majority of the entries are actual hunt horses. Rather than categorized into years of experience or height, Europ ..read more

Men ride horses too! Sometimes it’s easy to forget, what with 15% minority they’re believed to make up of the equestrian market and the volume of women’s wear posts we do here. But it’s a fact.

Steph’s Stuff: Fly Protection

Fly season is officially here, and I am worried that I might never get the smell of fly spray out of my clothes. And while frequent fly spray showers are a necessary evil this time of year, it wears off after a while, and my horses get nasty bites and then super annoyed—especially on their legs. These Kensington Protective Fly Boots are the best product I have found to stop flies and gnats from irritating legs. They provide so much protection, and they actually stop my horses from stomping their feet in frustration (specifically my highly sensitive, retired mare who spends a lot of time in tur ..read more
