I'm sorry, but I love the look of white breeches - so clean & fresh... ahhh

I'm sorry, but I think shad's look silly in the hunter ring & are better left for Dressage.

I'm sorry, but I like Rust Breeches. They look sooooooooo cute on ponies with little kids on board at schooling shows (very limited on my extent of tolerance to rust, LOL).

I have most likely been brain washed, as the best pair of breeches I had growing up were rust colored. :):):)

I'm not sorry at all, and people who wear shadbellies to local hunter classics need to braid their horses. If you dress up, you'd better dress your horse up too. And checkerboards on the rumps wouldn't come amiss.

I'm sorry but, I'm tired of seeing young (and occasionally NOT so young) ladies exposing themselves a little bit too much at the barn! I mean, I'm 17, i'm not boobless, but I know how to be appropriate and cover up! Is it so hard? I know it's 90 degrees, but wear a baggy t-shirt or something, so I don't have to wonder if your boobs are going to fall out of your too-tight spaghetti strap cami top which is NOT barn-appropriate!! :eyeroll: It's about riding, not cleavage!

I bought mine at Beval in Saugerties last summer. I can't find it on their website though. It's called an "Equivisor" made by Cashel. Here it is at Victory Canter... http://www.victorycanter.com/Equivisor-p-19800.html

BTW, I LOVE it! I thought they were sooooo ugly at first, but I really do like mine a whole heck of a lot.

I'm sorry your pelham-going horse isn't broke or strong enough to do his job with a snaffle.

I'm sorry too for the full-cheek twisted wire-wearing kids' or old ladies' hunter.

I'm sorry for the rest of us who put in the dressage time and flat work that these bits are legal.

OK, this is a tad strong. Sorry. Really, this time I mean it.

I'm sorry, but I could really care less if your collar monogram's thread is perfectly matched to the color of your coat. Or whether or not you are riding in a pelham, or in white breeches, or doing hunter hair.

Wow. That felt good.

BTW, Tidy, I think your ears are perfectly acceptable, even if they do help you and your horse fly over the jumps...:lol:

I'm sorry, but 2'6" hunters do not belong at rated shows....KIDDING, not opening that can of worms again :lol:

Actually, I'm sorry, but GPA's are freakin FUGLY. Especially Speedairs. Yes, I do have one, because it's the only approved show-appropriate helmet I could find that fits me and is comfortable. But every time I put it on, I cringe. It makes me look like an alien, and it makes everyone else look like an alien too.

I'm sorry but I do NOT want to sit around and listen to you critique and rip apart every rider pictured in this weeks chronicle. I don't care if you beat them at some show i've never heard of 4 years ago.

I'm also sorry but I really don't believe that ONLY custom boots, jackets and saddles fit you and your horse. Even if that was the case did you HAVE to get the alligator trim?

Finally, I'm sorry but I don't want to hear ANY complaints about the barn staff or grooms at your over priced facility. They are doing your work for you, and I bet their doing a damn good job no matter what you say!

My not so fave: On a frontier flight once, I had to show my ID to prove I could sit in the emergency exit row. You have to be 15 to sit there, and I was 22 at the time. REALLLY!?!??!

And I'm sorry, too, but my hunter/eq horse goes in a pelham because she gets a *wee* bit strong. She still thinks she's an A/O jumper.

I'm sorry, but hunter rounds should NOT be about EVERY horse doing X number of strides over X number of jumps. I'm sorry, but I would like to see odd distances, needing lengthening and shortening, and a rider who knows how to do both. And I'm sorry, if one horse can a 60' distance in 5 strides, and another can do in in 6, as long as they are both smooth, it doesn't matter to me.

Wow, I agree with A LOT of this - I guess I owe a lot of apologies! :lol:

I have two of my own:

1. I'm sorry...I am hoping that stock pins return to acceptable status...I just think they are very elegant and I would like not having to permanently embroider my collars.

2. I'm sorry, but I think some people like their hunters way too overweight. And it's asking for laminitis and suspensory issues. Nothing pretty about an overweight horse heaving itself over a fence.

Im sorry but i think a gorgeous and classic TB hunter beats any warmblood any day.

Im sorry but i think 2'6" classes are totally acceptable at the bigger rated shows...maybe just not 10 divisions of them!

Im sorry but just becuase your doing jumpers doesnt mean you can dress crazy or sloppy. Stay conservative please.

Im (not) sorry but if your horse stops and its your fault, you have NO right to beat the heck out of him with your crop. If your horse is stopping becuase its your fault and you dont know its your fault, you shouldnt be jumping what your jumping.

Im sorry, but GPA's? really?! so ugly, especially in the hunter ring. I feel truely sorry for anyone who cant find another brand that fits them.

I'm sorry but wearing super low rise breeches with shadbellies looks silly. That foot or so of shirt in between the belt and your points ruins the look for me.

I'm sorry but the fact that you don't wear the "in" clothing or have the latest fad in tack is probably not the reason you didn't place. Ditto your horse's breed, color, or whatever.

I'm sorry but I think you should get a 20 point penalty for holding up the ring wihtout a darned good reason (conflicts are okay; wanting to get in 2, 3, 4 more jumps first is not). Even more points off if your trainer is screaming instructions to you all the way around.

I am sorry, but rust breeches are never okay with shadbellies, even on skinny kids.

I am sorry, but you shouldn't have to show every weekend to qualify for Medal finals, Devon, indoors, or even get Horse of the Year. If you can't do it in less shows, you don't deserve it.

I am sorry, but I swear no COs fit me and I was just really sick of the other GPAs so I show in the hunters with a SpeedAir.

I am sorry, but I actually like the way black/black SpeedAirs look!

Wow, maybe I need to go to Church to get out the rest of them!

I'm sorry, but...

- I hate hunters. Outside, diagonal, outside, diagonal. I'll take jumpers over them any day, thankyouverymuch

- I think that anyone that gets on their horse to do their round, and then flips the reins to the groom should not be riding. (trainwreck?) :no:


At the last show I went to there was a little kid (6?7?) cleaning her tiny saddle, and when I walked past she was bitching about having to clean her saddle because her personal groom was sick. Honestly kid, what you're doing IS NOT riding. :mad:

that's certainly taking off a load :)

I'm sorry, but people who discriminate against other people's equestrian sport of choice for reasons other than explicit horsemanship concerns are, in my opinion, asking for a sharp rap upside the head.

That said:

I'm sorry, but what you can do with a $34.99 speshul orange whip and a rope halter (only $49.99!) I can do with a dressage whip and whatever halter my horse happens to be wearing.

Possible corollary:

I'm sorry, but I don't appreciate polite acquaintances telling me that my horse is ill-trained or has no manners because he stamps at flies on the trailer, or because he likes to greet people by touching them with his nose. Everyone has a set of manners they find appropriate for horses (with some hard and fast rules like, "No biting, no kicking, no rearing") and you'd better believe that by my standards my horse is suitable for polite company!

I'm tired of saddle fitters who know less than I do.

Tack stores (on-line and real) without sufficient inventory and ridiculous trial policies that require the customer to just about buy a saddle in order to make an intelligent "bet" about what will work.

I'm sorry people never experienced the days when hunters were supposed to gallop and show brilliance. I am sorry young people have never experienced showing/riding on an outside course where you can gallop.

I'm sorry but your trainer should coach you before your classes, not while you are on course and everyone (including the judge) can hear her shouting at you from the in gate.

I'm sorry for the judge in the main hunter ring at St. Chris. He doesn't realize that non-warmbloods make good hunters too!:no:

Yes, the judge pinned the same 8 warmbloods in every single class in the divison. The other 12 were throughbred types. I saw some of the warmblood's trips, and who knew a trip with two chips from a warmblood could beat the trip of a tb that flips its tail during lead changes.:confused:

I am also sorry for the posters on here who said the judges at St. Chris were some of the best in the country. I acctually thought the judge I had was one of the worst!:yes:

I am sorry, but I don't do "hunter hair". A total of ONE person at my barn does it (we are a rated show barn) and we all kiddingly made fun of her for doing her hair wrong. I guess the other 15 of us were the ones doing it wrong.

I am sorry that I missed the days of the outside sourses:cry:They would have been so much fun!

I am sorry but teen age girls I do not need to see the thong poking out the top of your breeches.

I am sorry but wearing a thong is not comfortable in the saddle all day. I would rather have VPN than chafing from hek.

I am sorry that I will have to start smacking the bratty kids when they talk badly to the trainer, parent, other kids.

I am sorry that the mothers and fathers dont have courage to take said bratty kid home when that happens. (My mom did this a fwe times...got nicer)

I am sorry that my horse is just a QH, he is a big mover and can jump the moon. He just has a owner who is a adult re-rider who has chicken moments.

In the book Fit To Show (Madden/Cooney I believe) they recommend rust breeches for fat-legged riders. :) :) :)
I'm sorry, but I disagree. ;)

I'm sorry, but while I usually love being short, when I'm walking a course and the jumps come halfway up my face, I sometimes wish I were 5'6''. I walked a level 7 course at a schooling show and just about died (I'm fine riding it!).

ha ha! I've always hated that (though I'm 5'5", so not *that* short)! I'm always so jealous of the 6'+ guys walking the course, both because they get to take these little steps to walk the lines AND the jumps only come up to their rib cage or shoulders when they're at my eye level.

Same goes for walking into the ring on my 15.3h mare. The fences seem so much bigger when I'm sitting on her than they do when I'm on my 17h gelding.

Oh to be a 6'4" person sitting on a 17.2h horse! :lol: (but only from a "how-big-the-fences-look perspective!)

What's that? I can't hear you through my perfectly done hunter hair...

(just don't look at any of my photos. The...er....lighting, yeah LIGHTING makes it look like I just put my hair in a ponytail and flip it up).

you're a JUMPER... you don't even need to flip it up. ;)
