"I find that there is no substitute for the good old English way of horsemanship, followed by the old Western horsemen. Some of the riding is better today (jumping, cross-country) but the ideals of the British school of horsemanship have never failed…"

Yes, well we all have those lovely tax abbreviations to contend with!!! And "Cheerz!" (usually spelt "Cheers" but I stylized it because of my singing group "ChoirGirlz") is a commonly used and cheerful message closer over here. And yes it is used as a toast as well. ;-) When will the Dutch translation of Chris' book be available? My girlfriend there might be interested in reading it.

Sorry for the confusion ... I visited "Den Bosch" in April. It's a very nice town. We have some friends who live close to there. Also went to the Keukenhof to see all the tulips. This was one of my favourite parts of the trip. BTW means "By the way", just so you know ...Cheerz!

Welcome to Barnmice, Frank! That translation sounds like quite the undertaking. It's a great book. Congrats on this accomplishment. BTW just visited The Netherlands for the first time and loved what I saw. Spent time in s'Hertogenbosch. Pretty place. Cheerz!
