Rain, hoof hold-ups and a fixed end-goal date create challenges.

by Emily Flaxman

That status, however, may not last long as physical upgrades, energized management and marketing and hunter/jumper and new dressage competitions coalesce to capitalize on the property’s many amenities.

Jumping Pains

Question: I am an english rider and occasionally I do a little jumping. We always start out well with a few good jumps but as we continue, my horse becomes cranky. His head comes up, he flattens his ears and his neck gets stiff. Can you give me some information on why this might be happening and how I may correct this behavior.
