Now in its second year, the West Coast Gold Star took place Jan. 17-20 at HITS Coachella, concurrent with the first week of the hunter/jumper show circuit.

Veteran KWPN breeder & breeding services provider shifts to sharing mode.

by Kim F. Miller

Tish Quirk is not sure which came first. “Did I get into breeding because I love the full, long lifespan of the horse, or did I come to appreciate that because I’m into breeding?” she muses. She’s sure of one thing: that appreciating and enjoying every moment of a horse’s life is the foundation for a life well spent with horses and  a reward unto itself.

Helping recipients on their path to success: applications due Feb. 19.

by Rose Pezzo & Jackie McFarland

For some time, equestrians have had to vie for the respect to be distinguished as athletes. We all remember the heated debates we had growing up when told it was not a sport if the horse did all the work. But we all know far too well about countless long days at the barn. We have strong legs, muscular shoulders and a balanced core, and we know how to care for and manage our four-legged partners. Knowing this level of devotion and athleticism involved in our sport, Blenheim EquiSports chose to recognize up and coming professionals with the Emerging Professional Grant for the first time three years ago.

Cutting-edge apps and software enhance equestrian lives.

by Emily Riden / Jump Media

Modern horse sport is based on distinctly old-fashioned traditions. Hunter and jumper riders compete in formal jackets and breeches that mimic those traditionally worn in the foxhunting field. Equestrians of all disciplines mount their horses from the left side because, historically, mounted soldiers carried their swords on the left. No matter the form of riding, tradition runs deep in the way things are done throughout the equestrian industry.

Five-to-seven is the ideal body condition score for mare conception.

Descriptions such as “ribby” and “pudgy” are vague. One horseman may characterize a mare as “heavy,” while another would describe her as “fatter than a county fair hog.” By these descriptions, however, neither horseman may know just how fat that mare truly is!
