    I get it. :-) But it might be better public relations to improve a 527 acre park for the greater publics use after the games than to develop an equestrian park that will benefit the "elite"...

    What past Olympic xc course is still in use? Los Angeles - no. Atlanta - no. Hong Kong - no. London - no. Not sure about Barcelona. Only Bromont comes to mind at the moment, and that's going...

    The Boston2024 site has a pretty good FAQ section that addresses the concerns you outline above:

    The equestrian events are taking a page from London & are targeting Franklin Park in Boston. (plenty of room there for an xc course)

    The other US finalists are Washington DC, San Francisco and Los Angeles. It's a pretty cool plan they have in place for Boston - they would be the "walking games". None of the venues would have its...
  6. Area 1 Eventers in Boston 2024 Olympic Bid promo video

    OK, so one of them is my son, riding his novice eventer, Gracious Plenty, so I'm a little biased, but I think it came out great! Andy would be the Paul Revere-type of character at the beginning of...

    Or how about that one time a horse came kind of close to doing a shoulder in during a lesson and is now advertised as "second level"?

    To me, a show record is about verifying that a horse has...

    I've supervised our club's twice annual rating for the past several years, in addition to watching my child take his. And from what I've seen many times over, a packer is absolutely NOT needed. A...

    We own a Irish Draught/TB cross by Snowford's Bellman & out of a Rock Point TB mare. I think the TB got a little lost somewhere along the line...he's a big sturdy 17.1 hands. Personally, if you are...

    Pony club ratings can be excellent life learning events. My son was taking his C3 rating & passed the flat portion. The examiners asked him to redo a leg wrap from earlier in the rating, and while...

    When I had a sporthorse clinic do a PPE on a big (17.1) Irish sport horse we wanted to buy, x-rays showed sidebone. Vet was completely unconcerned and we bought the horse. Have now had 2.5 years,...

    There is no qualifying criteria for the horse for a N3D, just the rider.

    I've got a teenage son who is long & lanky (5'11), and also at the age of 15, we got really stuck with saddle shopping. He tried every saddle in the store, including some whose price tags made me...

    I've fallen off with vest and fallen off without vest. They do make a difference.

    I understand your feelings, though, and it doesn't really change as they grow older. Last year when my 16 year...

    Thanks! I just put one together for Daryl Kinney, too. I figured since she has had to supervise my son being a working student for the past 3 summers, it was the least I could do for her. ;) ...

    Thanks, pony grandma. :) Andy had a bad accident at a ski race last winter that put him in ICU, and he wasn't able to really ride until June and didn't compete until July. So it was extra sweet to...

    I sat down last night and started playing around and ended up mixing and mashing video scenes from a few events from this past summer, set it all to a little Rolling Stones...and voila! A highlights...

    Last winter I boarded at a barn with no indoor. My dressage instructor is a 10 minute hack down the street away, but I work regular day time hours, and while I'm brave, I'm not quite brave enough to...

    Oh, I'm sorry to see this. Renate taught me how to sit - really and properly correctly sit - the trot. A very long time ago and I have mentally thanked her many times over the years for it.

    I'd be interested to know what some define as "negative comments"...I rode a test this year that scored pretty well, at 70%, and for one of the movements, a downward transition, I got an 8 with a...

    The judging can be baffling. I watched with interest a FEH class this year, in which the horses that placed # 1 and # 2 in a class did not trot on the triangle. They leaped, they spun, they...

    But you can't call it the national championships if you hold it where very few people actually event. 372 entries can not be sustainable long term as a national championship. Fitch's Corner hosted...

    I don't see anyone here critical of the 12 year old. She's 12. She's acting like a 12 year old - a very compassionate, well-intended, hard working 12 year old. However. 12 year olds also need...

    In the clinic I rode in, there were 3 of us in my group: me, a pro on a young horse, and a woman who I might describe, in all kindness, as a lifetime BN rider. I had a good experience because my...
