Are you horse-shopping this week? I love following along vicariously with the major sales — and this week’s Monart Sale in Ireland is about as big as they come, with 173 lots going under the hammer this week. I can’t wait to see which horses go the way of top pros and find it fascinating to see what raw qualities people go for when buying three-year-olds. Head to the Monart website if you, too, want to window-shop — or register to bid and pick up a future superstar of your own! You can also view our preview wishlist of the catalog here.

Tuesday News & Notes from Around the World:

Want the post-event debrief and deep dive on the Pan Ams? The latest episode of the US Eventing podcast is exactly that, with insights and analysis from chef d’equipe Bobby Costello joining host Nicole Brown for a full recap.

New in dispatches from the dark side: could dressage’s rider classification system use an update? Lauren Sprieser thinks so — and I really like the sound of her proposed system, which groups riders by relative experience within their level, rather than forcing amateurs to go head to head with pros. Read her thoughts on the matter here.

One of the most contentious bits of legislation being voted on at the FEI General Assembly this month is a policing of social media use for members. If passed, it could mean that riders, organisers, owners, and so on would no longer be able to pass comment or critique on fellow members or the organisation itself — and plenty of people are rightfully unhappy about this.

Heads up if you’re the owner of a Collegiate saddle: a number of models have been recalled following the discovery of an issue with the stirrup bar’s connection to the saddle. Check if your saddle is among the models here.
