A round pen or arena may be one of the best investments you ever make for your horses. It can serve as a useful training space, a safe place to turn out horses, and provides a smaller space to work a horse from the ground as well as in the saddle. Indoor arenas also protects riders and horses from the cold, snow, rain and wind in the winter and can also keep everyone cooler by providing shade in the summer.

Photo by Jack Mancini The March issue of Sidelines has hit the stands – or at least the Internet (but will be in your mailboxes soon!)

I was just in Wellington and was able to watch Reed show, and she is pretty remarkable – which is why we titled her story “Remarkable Reed.” Wellington photographer Jack Mancini did a great photo shoot of Reed and had a fun time shooting her with her Olympic horse Cylana and her newly adopted pup Carly, who she adopted from Ron and Danny’s Rescue. I ran into Reed’s mom at the show, standing on the side of the ring watching Reed show, while holding cute Carly in her arms.
