Straight From the Horse’s Mouth – Tucks St. Aly Checks In from Texas

Well, first off, let me tell you, the honeymoon is over! This girl now, instead of giving me 3 peppermints every time she comes to see me….now only gives me maybe 3 or 6 per day.

Wolfie Goes to Wellington!

We are getting much better at finding and keeping our jumping pace and hitting the proscribed number of strides.

Once a Steeplechaser, Always a Steeplechaser

Heather's Best was a steeplechaser

Heather’s Best is great. I gave him about a month off this winter and we have been getting back to work this week. I had planned to lunge him for a few days just to get him back in the mode, but he was so quiet and good, that I just rode him lightly instead.…
