Horses are hands-down the most majestic creatures oozing grace and mystique (as seen in the eyes of your writer, a life-long sufferer of a heavy horse addiction). The sound of their hooves on frozen ground, their velvety noses and soft snorts truly do have a profound effect on a human being, but this side has been widely documented in various phrases, aphorisms, and poems. What the poems tend to keep silent about, though, is a horse's ability to fart straight in your face and then spook at it. Right, spook at their own farts. They are also absolute masterminds at looking for trouble and champions at injuring themselves in the silliest possible ways (most often by forgetting they have four legs). And oh, the work that comes with owning one…! All very worth it, but forget about sleeping in, like, ever.

One of the most common causes of lameness in horses is osteoarthritis (OA). Horse owners across the country spend countless hours and paychecks to try to supply effective pain management tools to their horses in hopes of providing comfort and prolonged happiness — whether in the pasture or in the show pen.
Lousiana-bred Ninety One Assault (Artie Schiller) was a bit of a hometown hero at Fair Grounds, where he scored seven of his eight lifetime victories, including three stakes wins for trainer Tom Morley. However, he was also a familiar face in New York as well, calling Belmont home for part of the year.

Welcome to our Pre-Season Rider Spotlight series! Growing up in the junior spotlight, Giavanna Rinaldi took the junior circuit by storm, riding for Charlie and Maggie Jayne at Our Day Farm here in Wellington, FL.

With the help of generous owners, Michele and Anton Marano, as well as training alongside Andrew Welles, Giavanna has come back to the states with a bang, preparing herself as the 2023 WEF season approaches and coming off of her first five-star grand prix win this past summer at Spruce Meadows.

“Put your head up. You should look where you’re going!”. Sometimes it’s the small things that make the big difference.

One of the greatest fears for a rider is that their once-in-a-lifetime horse will become injured. In 2019, this worry turned into a reality for Rileigh Tibbott who was thinking about retiring her heart horse, Charley. Before making that difficult decision, Tibbott decided to take Charley to Dr. Bryan Dubynsky of Palm Beach Equine Clinic (PBEC) in Wellington, FL, for another opinion. Although it took more than a year, the decision to trust PBEC with Charley’s care ended up changing the outcome of his career as a performance horse.
Tanner Korotkin admits, Quinn 33’s arrival to his string was unexpected. The 21-year-old was preparing to show at the Kentucky Summer Horse Show when a chestnut gelding was shipped to him—a “kind of spur-of-the-moment” move—from Ocala, FL. The horse, 12-year-old Holsteiner Quinn 33 (Quidam de Revel x Contender) would be a sale horse for him to campaign in international classes.
