Alas, The Horsey Set Net is No More. I closed the blog in December 2020. I should send this page to the Trash but I don’t have the heart to yet. The blog ran for twelve years.
If you like horses, be sure to visit The Horsey Set Net, my online horses-and-culture magazine/blog/website, where enthusiasts of all breeds and disciplines are welcome.
I’ve loved horses ever since I was a child. I grew up in rural Kentucky, where thoroughbreds are famous but don’t hold a monopoly. On one street in Lexington, KY, alone, you can find thoroughbred farms, saddlebred farms, and a Tennessee Walking Horse farm all in about two miles of each other. (Old Paris Pike, if you want to be specific.)
The Horsey Set Net is where I get to bring readers along in a journey of exploration.
I want to show that the world of horses is vast, fascinating and fun, even for those who don’t find comfort in a barn.
What you’ll find
Articles, essays, articles, satires, videos from YouTube, and videos I’ve shot on-location.
Travel tips for Kentucky, Virginia Hunt Country, Saratoga, Scottsdale, central Florida.
Reviews and mentions of creative works featuring horses from Broadway shows, award-winning novels to TV commercials.
Compelling photography from the world’s finest stock photographers and, well, me.
What it’s not
No training tips. I’m a traveler, not a trainer.
Not so many handicapping tips, although I have one about how pedigree can impact a horse’s stamina for distance races. Aka “dosage.”
No bashing, no name-calling, no spitting on the floor. I did get a little snarky back in the days of the Horse Movie Drinking Game, when I ragged on TV shows and movies for their mistakes in scenes or stories featuring horses. Hollywood is such a fun target.
