Heraldic And Crandell Make A Triumphant Return At Old Dominion 100

After a potentially career-ending injury, John Crandell’s mount is back at the top of his game.

“He’s a freak of nature,” John Crandell III said of Heraldic after winning his sixth and Heraldic’s second Old Dominion 100 on June 12 in Orkney Springs, Va. “He’s not the easiest personality in the world to get along with, but physically, athletically, he’s a freak of nature. That’s the best way to describe him. He’s just athletic in every way you can imagine.”

Well-Behaved Women Rarely Make History: Lady Godiva

It’s been a chocolate kind of week here at The Chronicle. We typically have a bit of a lull in the schedule in the middle of the summer, so we’ve all been busy catching up on projects and trying to stay ahead of the game in preparation for our incredibly busy fall season.

I took a break today to have a bit of chocolate, and much to my surprise, there was a horse on it! Now, I’ve never really paid attention to chocolate logos, but this one intrigued me.

Lost In the Woods? No Problem!

I’m not going to lie. I was a little apprehensive about covering the Old Dominion 100 this past weekend. The idea of hiking through the woods for hours on end didn’t bother me, but I was nervous about taking pictures! I wanted to find the perfect, most beautiful spot on the trail to showcase the event.

I should have settled for an easy place to find.

Sweet Chariots And An Ancient Circus

I’ve been writing a lot about more recent history lately, so I decided to dig deeper into the past of the horse. One of the problems I’ve run into while working on this project of mine is that there’s so much to write about, I have a hard time narrowing down a topic! If you have something you’re interested in learning more about, please let me know! I’d love to hear from you.

Sally Swift Will Remain A Shining Light To Riders Everywhere

When Sally Swift began her Centered Riding journey more than 35 years ago, she certainly didn’t know, or even imagine, that she would be etching her name among the ranks of the world’s greatest horsemen.

But her desire and enthusiasm for making the lives of horses and riders more joyful and harmonious carried her on an upward spiral to greatness.

Planes, Trains, Automobiles, Horseboxes And Caravans

I’ve been writing so much about trailers lately that my brain is constantly revolving around goosenecks, GVWRs and visions of a shiny new truck and trailer.

I couldn’t help but wonder who invented horse trailers in the first place. To discover that, we must go a little further back in time.
