This season’s show jumping events pose a great chance to watch and learn, but don’t copy the wrong thing!

by Karen Healey

'Tis the season for great show jumping. The revamped Longines World Cup Jumping NAL league and the third year of the Longines Los Angeles Masters bring increasingly accomplished horses and riders to the West Coast. It’s great news for the sport and it’s a great opportunity to learn by watching, for riders, trainers and fans of any experience level.

Final preparations for KJ for this month’s big event.

by Emily Flaxman

Another month that didn’t go to plan.  Sadly, the show I intended to go to got cancelled at the last minute, which was unfortunate but luckily another local showground announced that they were going to host a show in September so we’ve entered for that instead. This will definitely be our last opportunity before Kentucky though as the show season is winding down for the winter. We’re into the final straight now, with only seven weeks to go until the Oct. 27-30 Thoroughbred Makeover as I write this.

So the usual treatment of icing and liniment was started.
