World Equestrian Games: Endurance

When I was at the North American Junior and Young Rider Championships last week, I was driving through downtown Lexington, Ky., and found myself brimming with excitement about the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games. Not only were there totally beautiful horse statues everywhere, but we drove under a countdown clock to the Games!

World Equestrian Games: Dressage

Did you know that the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games start in 57 days? It seems like it wasn’t very long ago that the WEG was a far-distant speck on the horizon, and now it’s just around the corner. 

Since the WEG is showcasing eight different equestrian disciplines, and many of you may not be familiar with all of them, I decided that each event needed its own history lesson on this blog. And since dressage could be considered the foundation of every equine sport, I decided to start our nine-week countdown with “ballet on horseback.”

So what is dressage, anyway?

Playing With Ponies Defined My 1980s Childhood

I have to admit, a little sheepishly, that I still get pretty darn excited about things from my youth. Who doesn’t fondly remember The Smurfs, Pretty Pretty Princess, POGS, Ghostbusters, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Rainbow Bright, Strawberry Shortcake and Dinosaur? Of course, there’s one thing that makes me squeal like a Justin Bieber tween fan whenever I see them: My Little Pony.

A Horse Is A Horse, Of Course, Of Course

I’m willing to bet almost none of you are familiar with a horse named Bamboo Harvester. Yet he’s probably one of the most famous horses in U.S. history.

Need a hint?

Bamboo Harvester was born in 1949 and was bred to be a show horse. For the first 11 years of his life, he was just that, traveling across the country gathering championships.

Well-Behaved Women Rarely Make History: Sonora Carver

Walking down the boardwalk in Atlantic City, N.J., just isn’t the same these days. What once was a prime vacation destination for the rich and famous in the early part of the 20th century, rich in upscale hotels, attractions such as Steel, Million Dollar and Iron Pier, side show acts, entertainment and nightlife, has now become a boulevard of towering casinos prevailing over the Atlantic Ocean’s horizon.

Misty Always Made Me Want To Buy A Pony

Ever since I read Misty of Chincoteague when I was a kid, I’ve wanted to attend Pony Penning Day and bring home a Misty all of my own. Of course, that wish was always a far-fetched one, since I grew up on the West Coast, thousands of miles away from the two islands and adventures that Marguerite Henry described in her book. It’s been a long time since I’ve picked up the novel, but I still remember being swept away by the story of Misty.
