So often when attending the races or even watching them on TV, we see a horse that catches our eye. Maybe it’s the horse’s color, size or build, or maybe it’s his or her presence as he jiggy-jogs around the paddock and through the post parade. How many times does someone actually get to take […]

When one hears the term “sidesaddle,” it likely evokes images of a demure woman outfitted in a wool coat and skirt sitting atop her mannerly steed as they gracefully canter through the countryside.
