The EquiFit theraputic pad uses the T-Foam memory foam that is always so comfortable for horses. This pad maximizes support, disperses pressure points, absorbs shock, and helps prevent back soreness. I have always loved the EquiFit brand and though I have never used this pad, I have always wanted to try it.
The ThinLine pad has always been a favorite for many. It is great for horses that don’t need a lot of padding underneath the saddle. It flexes and moves with your horse, has great shock absorption, and offers closer contact between horse and rider
The Ogilvy pad is somewhat similar to the EquiFit one although there are a few different features. This pad uses anti-slip, moisture-wicking materials. It has anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties. It also uses a memory foam that gives great shock absorption. This is another product that I have been dying to try on my horse.
It is getting COLD and I do not like it one bit! Half Moon Resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica would be the perfect escape for a warm and relaxing time. Half Moon was built on a perfectly shaped crescent beach in the 1950’s by a group of wealthy individuals as an exclusive vacation resort for their families. They offer many activities including amazing ocean swimming on horseback – check out the video, it looks like it would be so much fun!

Comfortable, stylish and sturdy, Hunter boots are worn by just about everyone, from royalty to soldiers, and from city rainstorms to muddy mountainsides. They are of course always present and super reliable at the barn and horse shows.
Legendary for their durability, they are extremely well made and not “disposable” like most other kinds of rubber rain boots. They have been around for a very long time and have been a symbol of British country life. The company was formerly named the North British Rubber Company and was started by American entrepreneur Mr. Henry Lee Norris in 1856. They were used by the British Army to protect soldiers in flooded trenches in World War I and II. In 1956 the famous Green Wellington and the bestseller Royal Hunter were introduced – without a doubt, wellies are my all time favorites.
It’s time for the Alltech National Horse Show in Lexington, KY! October 30 – November 4, the show offers $600,000 in prize money with a $250,000 Alltech Grand Prix. I so wish I could be there! But I will definitely be tuning into the USEF Network on November 3rd to catch the grand prix.
It’s that time of the year! Some of the world’s top riders travel to Washington, D.C.’s Verizon Center to compete in one of the most prestigious indoor horse shows in the country. And it starts today! If you can’t make it to D.C. this week, then do like me and tune in to the USEF Network on Saturday October 27 for the WIHS Equitation Finals and President’s Cup Grand Prix!
