Freya Cox’s Bake Off bullies are wrong – vegans can ride horses too

It used to be Christmas that started earlier each year: now, it’s online abuse of reality TV show contestants. A sad mark of the impending arrival of a popular reality TV show has been previous contestants gingerly sharing reminders that the show is edited and to be kind and considerate to those taking part. Ru Paul’s Drag Race is noted for particularly virulent fans online, but even The Great British Bake Off is suffering.

What’s the Big Deal About CHIO Aachen?

CHIO Aachen is a little bit of an odd duck on the international eventing calendar. The eventing competition is a 4*-S — not even a 4*-L — and a team competition but not part of the FEI Nations Cup. Yet it commands a great amount of attention and importance. Nestled...

To Sit or Not to Sit?

In clinics I teach around the world, I hear a question again and again: To sit or not to sit while riding a course? The question of seat position continues to be one of the most confusing topics among many riders in the jumping disciplines. One reason: Today, the most effective top riders competing at the highest levels use a variety of seats. So, when do we sit and when do we stay out of the saddle?

“It’s About Time!”

“It's about time!” could be heard from the stands as Caitlin Harrison's name was called, announcing her and her horse as first place winners of the 55th Annual State Horse Show 2021 at the Georgia Federation of Saddle Clubs Event last week. The sentiment belonged to her grandfather, Paul Shepard, and there could be no mistaking the pride and delight in Caitlin's smile as she collected her trophy.

Team USA Is All Clear Through CHIO Aachen First Horse Inspection

EN’s own dutiful professor of journotology, Tilly Berendt, says hallo from CHIO Aachen in Germany! She’s experiencing a computer adapter mishap and is currently out roaming Aachen’s dimly lit streets in search of a Best Buy, or whatever is the German equivalent of a place that sells computer stuff: “I’m going to keep looking until this whole stupid city shuts down. Which might be fairly soon this,” she says, unassuredly but with great conviction.

Jordan Coyle back in the saddle on Ariso at Spruce Meadows

Jordan Coyle didn’t really want to speak of last Saturday, not really. This advertisement has not loaded yet, but your article continues below. But he knew it would come up.
