I wonder if this horse costumed as an elephant can fly with those ears?
Welcome to the Halloween Horse Show presented by The Horsey Set Net! If you think that elephant and the poodle-on-a-leash are something, wait until you see what else we have for you!
The heat broke, the humidity’s fading and the leaves are subdued if not yet ablaze with color. It’s mid-autumn in the northern hemisphere, a great time for a fall trail ride. Here are some trail ride videos from YouTube. Enjoy!
We have another contribution from globe-trotting equestrian and author Christine Meunier, photos and her observations from her visit to this museum dedicated to our favorite animal. I took the liberty of adding some history and, very important, movie trivia.
Located in the area of Chantilly, France, lies an establishment that encourages the equine lover to dream.
We have a guest post by world-traveling Australian equine studies professor and author Christine Meunier about one of her past jobs – working with the equine residents of the Irish National Stud. Take it away, Christine!
The Irish National Stud in Kildare, Ireland, is a great place to visit for horse fans and garden enthusiasts alike. Home to many thoroughbreds for breeding, the stud boasts gorgeous post- and rail-lined fields full of sleek equine bodies.

Happy 5th birthday to us! When The Horsey Set Net first went live in late July 2008, I had no idea what I’d be blogging about, as this first post indicates.
Back then, the Olympics were just about to begin in Beijing, except we horsey folk were paying particular attention to the action in Hong Kong, where the equestrian competitions took place. The World Equestrian Games, slated for American soil for the first time ever, loomed ahead in 2010 like a shiny city of dreams.
Have we had fun since then, or what? Harry Potter in “Equus.” Zenyatta Mania. Falling in love with Joey in both incarnations of “War Horse.” Living the Derby dream each and every year since.
