A Horse of Course with Don Blazer
If you have your eyes wide open, you'll be able to see that horses, at one time or another, and sometimes in combination, can have a feather in the eye, a glass eye, a pig eye, a pop eye, a smoky eye or a walleye.
In addition, they have both monocular and binocular vision. The horse uses monocular vision to view separate things with each eye at the same
time. These objects are to the side and rear of the horse. Binocular
vision, for the horse, is frontal vision, and when using it the horse concentrates both eyes on the same object. (To know where a horse is looking, look at his ears. A horse is looking where his ears are pointing, whether together or separately.) The horse can see to the front, the side and the rear. In fact, he has a field of vision of up to 300 degrees.

Dressage Blossoms at Cosequin Winter Equestrian Festival
Tampa, FL—January 29, 2002— The Cosequin Winter Equestrian Festival (CWEF) is renowned for its high-flying jumpers that clear colorful obstacles, but the CWEF is also home to another beautiful style of riding, that found in the Olympic equestrian discipline of dressage. Horses and riders performing dressage at the levels executed at CWEF at the Palm Beach Polo Equestrian
Club demonstrate the beauty and poise reminiscent of Olympic figure skating or gymnastics.
“Dressage is a beautiful sport with roots that go back hundreds of years,” said Gene Mische, President of Stadium Jumping, Inc., which produces the CWEF. “To see these huge, magnificent creatures performing these very precise movements without obvious prompting from their riders is truly remarkable. You wonder, how did they do that?”

Richard Spooner Grabs His First Grand Prix Win At Start Of Six Week Circuit
The jump-off for the $50,000 EMO Grand Prix at the HITS Indio Desert Circuit Week 1 was a case of one-upsmanship. Jenni Martin set a time of 48.959 aboard Pop Socks, which was topped by Richard Spooner and Bradford when they stopped the clock in 45.479. Undaunted, Misti Cassar galloped Fahrenheit boldly around Ken Kromes challenging course to finish in 44.726. John French was next with Millennium and he seemed ahead of Cassars time when he got in a rush at the last fence and Millennium stopped. However, Cassars time had to withstand three more rounds, and Martin returned aboard Sunrise to shave off another half. John Pearce and Harry Potter decisively reduced the time another two seconds by stopping the time at 42.569. Only Spooner was left with Incento.
