One style doesn't fit all

A list of sites with information about specific equestrian disciplines and riding styles that I find interesting.

Foxhunting
My own pages about foxhunting in central Kentucky, with links to other foxhunting-related sites and information about the Foxhunters online mailing list.
Horse/Rider Types
A humorous look at the types of people and horses you're likely to see involved in different riding styles. Source unknown.
3-Day Eventing
According to the bumper stickers, eventers do it 3 ways for 3 days. I think this sport is one of the ultimate tests of equestrian athletes. It's way too much work for me to participate in, but I've got a lot of respect for the riders and horses involved in it.
Rolex Kentucky 3-Day Event
Probably the premier equestrian event in the United States, especially since it went 4-star in 1998. This is a link to my own Rolex pages, which also have links to other good net coverage of Rolex.
Cathy Wieschhoff
One of the top eventers and trainers in our local area. Not a Kentucky native, but she's been here long enough that we can try to claim her. Cathy's hopes for the 2000 Olympics were foiled by an injury at Rolex. But she has been competing successfully at national and international levels. Besides, she used to foxhunt with us, which is almost as important as all that other stuff.
Linden Wiesman
Another talented and beautiful Olympic rider. Unfortunately, I've never actually met her, but I was impressed (entranced? enthralled?) by her at the Rolex 2000 event. After she was named to the 2000 US Olympic team, and somebody told me I apparently had the only pictures of her on the web, I decided to consolidate them into this page. Anybody who makes it to the Olympics deserves her own web page.
Brickland Eventing
An accomplished eventing team based in Charlottesville, VA. The male half of the team, Jeff Beshear, is another foxhunting buddy, sucked into the eventing world by his bride, Emily (née Mastervich), a very experienced eventer.
CT Events
These folks are responsible for many of the annual events in central Kentucky (MayFest, Champagne Run, KY Classic, MSCTDA Team Challenge). Check out their site if you're looking for information on any of these events.
Champagne Run Farm
One of the Lexington area's premiere boarding/training/lesson/sales facilities. Actually, they support many other riding activities besides eventing, but most of the people I know there are eventers. And you won't find a nicer or more fun bunch of people anywhere. Their website still seems to be under construction, but there's nothing incomplete about their facilities or services. Give 'em a call and ask for Lee and Roy!!!
United States Eventing Association
Info about the USEA and 3-day eventing. Membership info, news articles, event results, etc.
USEA Area 8
Information about eventing in USEA Area 8, the heartland of America and the heart of eventing (Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, West Virginia and Western Pennsylvania).
Horse-Events.com
Horse-Events.com was established by USEA's Area VIII and webmaster Tammy Makela as a "home" for eventing and other equestrian activities in the Midwest (and beyond!)
Eventers-L Mailing List
A listserv mailing list hosted by Indiana University for the discussion of 3-Day Eventing, and its phases of Dressage, Endurance and Show Jumping.
Open Directory - Eventing
Eventing links provided by the Open Directory Project , which is a new approach to creating some semblance of order from the chaos of the World Wide Web. As the web grows and becomes more unwieldy, search engines yield hundreds of irrelevant results, and commercial directories become woefully outdated. ODP's goal is to provide a comprehensive, current directory by relying on an army of dedicated volunteer editors, each of whom is editing a category which interests him/her.
Trail Riding
A great way to unwind and enjoy some lovely scenery.
Riding Opportunities on Federal Land
A list of all federal parks and recreational areas with horseback riding opportunities. A search engine allows you to narrow your search to a specific area if desired.
Horse & Mule Trail Guide USA
Trails, Campgrounds, Trail Rides, Overnight Hosts, a collection of trails and places to camp and ride submitted by trail riders. Also has links to other informational sites.
Racing
Sometimes called "the sport of kings".
National Fjord Racing Association
This link would probably be more appropriate on my Equine Humor page (and it's there too), but I couldn't resist adding it here.
