June 9 th, 1973 was a historic day in horse racing: It’s the day that Secretariat won the Belmont Stakes with a stunning 31-length lead. With that victory the chestnut Thoroughbred stallion became the first Triple Crown winner in 25 years, and he became a household name at the same time. Secretariat was born on March 30, 1970.
Taking a horse to his first horse show can be a stressful and worrisome experience.
If you are a fan of gaited horses, the Mangalarga Marchador might be for you.

Congratulations – you’ve decided to send your child to a summer horse camp and have found the perfect one. Now you face a more difficult decision – should your child bring their own horse with them to summer camp?
Waiting your turn for a schooling jump at a big show such as WEF can be a daunting task if one is unaccustomed to the process.
As the weather continues to get warmer, you may be itching to get your horse out on the trails again. But if your horse has been out of work over the winter or if it’s been a while since you’ve been on the trails, you might be in for an interesting ride.
Whenever you ride in a horse show, you’ve invested a significant amount of time, money, and emotional energy into preparing for the day. Those sacrifices that you’ve made can create an atmosphere where the pressure is high and your nerves are on edge
