Cool new article, y'all![edit]

Pack Horse Library Project. Tagged for WPEQ. Very cool! Montanabw(talk) 19:25, 11 September 2017 (UTC)

Horse Showmanship Rules Regarding Equipment[edit]

I just edited the equipment section in the horse showmanship page. I added some details about the type of halters allowed. According to the AQHA showmanship rules, all the halter exceeding 4 mm of diameter are allowed. So if you have a rope halter, a flat nylon halter or a flat leather halter you're allowed to show. --CamilleLC (talk) 13:07, 25 September 2017 (UTC)

Metropolitan Museum of Art Weekly Challenge and The Horse Fair[edit]

We've chosen Rosa Bonheur's The Horse Fair as the first-ever Metropolitan Museum of Art Weekly Challenge for the coming week, (starting today!) and I'd like to invite you WikiProject Equine folks to become involved. I don't know how much artworks have been a WikiProject focus for you before, but this painting seems like a particularly relevant one with an interesting history.--Pharos (talk) 18:36, 25 September 2017 (UTC)

I don't suppose this includes photographic art, does it? Atsme📞📧 23:24, 25 September 2017 (UTC)

American Saddlebred stuff[edit]

I just approved Ellen Susman, an AfC candidate, and notice in her bio that she showed American Saddlebreds. She owns/shows CH The Cat Walk and won some Ladies Five-Gaited Championships if anyone is interested. Ellen's late sister, Carol Spencer Mitchell authored the book, Danger Pay: Memoir of a Photojournalist in the Middle East, 1984-1994 (Focus on American History Series). See her sister's obit. I posted notice of the latter on Women In Red. Atsme📞📧 00:30, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

I may do an article on the horse if I get time. Right now I'm working on a draft for Redd Crabtree (Saddlebred trainer) and another draft on a TWH trainer, Buddy Dick. After that I'll probably do a joint article for Redd's parents Helen and Charles Crabtree. White Arabian Filly Neigh 23:04, 12 November 2017 (UTC)
We already have Helen Crabtree, though it's a stub. She definitely warranted her own article independent of her husband due to her tremendous influence as a Saddle Seat equitation coach (as she literally wrote the book... I could scan images from the 70s edition I own...). We could mention him as "Mr. Crabtree" and discuss their breeding operation... but she's the famous one! LOL!

I had never seen her article before. I added it to the Saddlebred breeders and trainers cat so it's easier to find. I will probably expand in a few days after her son's article is live. It looks like it'll be easier to leave what's there as a lead and just add more below it. Her husband can have a subsection in her article and if he won a lot of Championships or something it can be split later. White Arabian Filly Neigh 23:29, 13 November 2017 (UTC)
