    Yes--I did that when I moved up to Training. Just took the time penalties. But I know some riders that want to be competitive and it sometimes can be a less than positive experience for the horse.

    I had put this off because I thought it was going to be such a PITA (bringing my horse to the university vet clinic for days, etc.) Anyway--it was one of the easiest, least stressful procedures. ...

    Well, this ended up morphing into a thread about speed penalties--but still good discussion! A number of the recognized events in our area have enough entries that they have "open", "horse" and...

    Wildlifer--I'm right there with you. A big fan of the roach for my mare. We were sidelined from jumping this summer and I showed at recognized dressage shows sporting our roached mane! It looks...
  5. Rules debate: why not just have the "open" division have a faster speed?

    I know they have tabled the rule changes for the lower levels (for now). However, I still can't figure out why the speed changes have to be an "all or nothing" approach. I'm sure I'm not the first...

    What I would do (similar to others on here): Ask for a basic PPE vetting--check eyes, listen to heart, lungs, basic neurological tests, and flexions. If you find anything funky on the...

    I feel like that is the reason why this sport has the wool coat/stock tie as the traditional garb is because it started in countries that were cooler and rainier than our US summer weather (when...

    Below is a link to me riding a 1/2 Dutch Harness (KWPN) and 1/2 Percheron. He is young and ridiculously tall (18 h) but is a really fun horse to ride. Very responsive for his size and also very...

    I have gone through a similar mystery issue with one of my mares. Same kind of behavior (crow hopping, etc). The bone scan showed inflammation in the SI area but there wasn't bony involvement -- it...

    Great thanks Polydor! I mainly wanted to know if it was worth it to pay for seats in stadium. At Burghley and Rolex, you really can't see much of showjumping if you don't have a seat in the stands. ...

    What fun! This sounds very much like when I got my OTTB mare. She was older (8) and she was off the track for a while (not much had been done with her so she was just out of shape and unschooled)....

    With my horses, it seems to depend on age and breed. All of mine get blanketed when it gets cold. My young horse stays slick all winter (people say she looks like a seal). Her hair gets thicker,...

    Just one thing to add to this discussion. Another reason why ULR's may "pull up" a horse after only a few jumps (especially after a stop) is that they realize that an "R" looks much better on a...
