NOTE: the Equitation series was very good, and worth
a see. Some of the graphics more appealing to "horse crazy" teens, however basic information very good, and shows the
competition in a very fair light.
An excellent opportunity to see the top equitation
riders in the United States "if you cannot make the show"!
RFD CONTINUES EXCELLENT
The Rural networkis re-airing the Eventing series that features Gold Medalist David and Karen O’Conner
and several of their students at major eventing competitions on the East Coast.
Dressage Unlimited continues
their programming—last month included a special on the Oldenburg inspections
for mares and foals at Woodbridge Farm.
Unfortunately, it seems
that the USDF series is not continuing at this time.
However, RFD broadcast
several western competitions in their entirety—including the 2005 National Cutting Horse Futurity finals the day after
the actual date of competition from Fort Worth, Texas.
This complements an already
excellent group of programs from trainers such as Parellis, C. Anderson, Craig Cameron, Lynn Palm and others.
One program that is very interesting in content is titled “Heroes”.It features three-four very well-known and successful
reining/working cow horse trainers that discuss their training methods and philosophies, then demonstrate their methods and
thought processes during schooling similar horses.Very informative.
The HorseCity.com series continues to be informative
and educational in all phases of equestrian activities.

continues extensive Throroughbred racing coverage, the weekly "Wire-to-Wire" show that covers the weeks highlights of Thoroughbred
