    UK Driving Champions

    [/media] Wanted to share this with our "Miniature" friends. We keep in touch with this family from "across the pond". We share a common interest in our driving / multiple hitch horses and unique vintage carriages. We thought this was certainly worth sharing.

    Pictures just made us laugh

    A few months ago we posted this picture and thought the caption should be: "I told you we didn't have our heads screwed on straight!!" Then this past week-end, while doing demos at the Horse Park in Lexington, it happened again and this time it happened to the horses, too! It must be catching!

    Congress Photo

    A few weeks ago a friend sent us this picture of our hitch from the 2011 Pony Congress in Des Moines, Iowa. We asked people for the "perfect caption" for it on the Shetland Forum and on Facebook. We are still laughing at all of them.   But the one we chose as the winner is: "Hal, I told...

    Question on Show Rules

    Please don't take this as a complaint - only as a question. We showed 3 different times this summer under 8 different Judges in the "New" Light Harness Class. The rules book calls for: flat-footed walk, trot and extended trot. At none of the shows was the extended trot called for by the...

    Photo / Resize Question
