    I agree, start by making sure his feet are comfortable. Then - leg yield, ground poles, and lots of transitions, trot/canter/trot. It can take a while to get a Tbred's back loose enough to open up...

    Ohhhh, I have another funny story - recently went w/ a friend to look at a horse. She has a LOW budget - under $5k, and is looking for something broke, doesn't need much schooling but must be...

    Oh, I have had plenty of people ask if my green 3.5 or 4 year old was "bombproof". No, and if anyone tells you their young horse IS "bombproof", they simply haven't yet dropped a bomb near them yet....

    They are quite low cut, and run about one size small - so if you are normally a 28, go to a 30. If you don't mind the low cut, they are really cute - I have a pair, wish the waist was a little...

    Canter is correct!

    I don't believe editing the music avoids the copyright laws - but since most of us are "non-commercial", it probably isn't a huge issue (don't quote me on that, I'm not a lawyer). The reason music...

    Yes, I understand that - I will be very curious to see how many people DON'T show at 4th level in the Regionals, and just move up to PSG. Talking to someone who was planning on qualifying for 4th...

    Older saddle, but should be marketable - I had one years ago to fit a very wide Friesian mare. Look at how many inquiries there are on fitting very wide horses - and suggestions to look at hoop...

    I would 2nd Waterford - he is an incredibly rideable horse, great temperament, and an elastic horse. Weltmeyer is a couple of generations back, he is by Wolky II. I think you get many of those...

    I agree, the national tests should set us up for the FEI tests - but they shouldn't be HARDER! There is a bigger jump going from 1st to 2nd then there is going for 4th to PSG. I predict there will...

    Region 6 and 7 are highly underrepresented due to the incredible distance they have to travel to get there, but those few who did make it are doing REALLY well. Lots of talent here on the West Coast.

    I think Kathy was trying to focus on the positive - I agree, it might have been "overly positive", but nice to hear that versus pointing out just what went wrong. I watched some of the GP and saw a...

    Looks like most people are in the same boat - we think $25k is a lot to spend on a horse:winkgrin: Heck, $10k is a lot to spend on a horse!

    As for the cheaper horses in Germany - I have seen...

    Based on watching a lot of 2nd level (I judge schooling shows) and talking to other judges and trainers - I really don't see a lot of well executed simple changes - it is often PULL to almost halt. ...

    Curious as to how many people have actually spend $50k or $100k or more on a horse. The nice thing about a poll is that it is anonymous - you don't have to post your name, anything on the thread! I...

    I am also curious - what will the breeders do when their own circumstances change? Health, employment, whatever? Many of you are no longer "spring chickens", what about when you have to sell the...
  18. Poll: Spinoff on the $100k horse, how much did you pay for your dressage horse?

    The thread on the $100k horse got me wondering... I should have broken it down even more - to the under $10k range! Since this is a spinoff on the $100k thread, I used same basic criteria - aka...

    Makes me want to start a poll - how many people HERE have bought a horse that is $100k or more? I can't even imagine... That kind of money to spend on a horse?

    No kidding - PSG flows better and other then the 2s, is actually easier. Especially since most judges expect the same of the "working pirouette" vs "non-working":cool:
