    Hiba is sadly been loaned to a friend since I lost my job last year. Hoping the day will come when I can see him regularly again. I know he's enjoying real pasture for the first time though.

Nov 17 2012 12:07 PM | Peter Mileo in Articles

Check out this horse in the Gallery. He is a Raffles great grandson and shows an uncanny resemblance to him. Of course that could be attributed to his many crosses to Skowronek. So, is this a horse you would use?? He certainly has some very good qu...

Equitation...your Thoughts

Feb 27 2012 07:02 PM | Pheobe in Articles

Maybe I was trained differently, maybe I'm too picky, but why is equitation no longer important? I had a whip placed behind my back, thru my elbows, to stop my from slouching. Twenty years later, I still don't slouch. I had to stand on the ba...
