McClain and Antares – just one example of an amazing grand prix horse! By Jan Westmark Allan There’s something extraordinary about a horse who competes at grand prix. Maybe it’s the ability to clear five-foot fences and six-foot spreads on a twisting, turning course – or maybe it’s the sheer determination and partnership that develops as horses and riders achieve the impossible. Whatever it is – Sidelines Magazine thinks it’s pretty incredible.

For almost three centuries, July has been a prime month for barn raisings in Amish and old order Mennonite communities in North America.
Houston, TX – In the saddle is a natural place to be for Keely McIntosh, a vibrant young woman with a passion for horses, equestrian sports, and a full life ahead of her. Keely has ridden since before she could walk and competed in Pony Club before she could read. The written tests for Pony Club ratings had to be read to Keely by the older girls and the family joke is that Keely learned her letters from the dressage arena. By age 6, Keely was showing in the Hunter ring in Welsh Pony classes. Her riding repertoire also includes Western, Eventing, and Charity Trail Rides to benefit SIRE programs. Today, Keely, 19 from Magnolia,Texas, is a show jumper competing in A and AA shows and, more times than not, lands in the top spot of the Amateur/Owner Show Jumping classes. However, all her years in the saddle never prepared her for an unexpected, life-changing moment with her horse in the ring.
