Are you following America’s Most Wanted Thoroughbred? The Retired Racehorse Project is promoting ten thoroughbreds who are being retrained by ten professionals in ten different disciplines, with their final expo in October at Pimlico Race Course. Icabad Crane is representing Eventing, and we already know that he is in the very capable hands of Phillip Dutton. You can vote today! [America’s Most Wanted Thoroughbred]

Rescue horses can make some of the best competitive partners, as proved by Jigsaw, who represented Britain in the European Open Championships in TREC. Jigsaw was rescued as a starvation case, and rehomed in 2004 to Lynne Mabbitt as an unbroken four year old. She represented her country in Italy earlier this year, placing 33rd individually, with Britain placing eighth in team standings. [Rescue Horse Enjoys International Success]

By far the best investment you’ll ever make, these double-lock brushing boots are literally what keeps eventing horses in tact. They are the bread and butter of every day training, and I’ve had a pair for as long as I can remember. When I wear them into pieces, which takes a few years, I buy a whole new set, and it’s very affordable. Of course, the best place to get them is SmartPak! [Woof Wear Double Lock Boots]
