    Anyone else thinking - shades of a poster with a name like Silly58'? Not suggesting it's the same person, but the attitude is reminiscent of everyone's favorite learner judge, is it not?

    And...

    Hugs... big ones.

    My decision making strategy involves a what-if scenario, so bear with me.

    Imagine you sold the horse, and he went permanently lame on his first day in the new barn. Would you...

    DO NOT use bleach pen. It will turn the fabric yellow even if you think you washed it out thoroughly.

    You could *try* a color-safe bleach blotted onto the stains and then rinse it immediately, but...

    Try the stain remover that comes with Dryel. Just buy a whole Dryel package if you have to - I don't think you can buy the spot cleaner on its own, but it's worth its weight in GOLD. No kidding.

    Decent judging, decent jumps, decent course design. If Wills is convenient for you, RHSC is the best cheap-miles option that I know of (but I haven't tried Cheryl and Co's HS101 shows). NOT a fancy...

    Thanks all! I too am shocked at the transformation - looking at old pictures I realized I just had to share.

    And I forgot to mention that this horse never jumped before I owned him, so we learned...
  8. From crossrails to A/A hunters - a very quick brag!

    Really I should have called this thread "I <3 my trainer" but that's just too cheesy!

    The pictures speak for themselves, but briefly I'll explain the background.

    I started riding with current...

    Thanks everyone for your thoughtful replies!

    DoubleS, good call, yes, we do a ton of flatwork. I wouldn't call it dressage, but our most recent exercise was to counterbend down the long sides -...

    Tidy Rabbit, I wish there were a reasoning behind the too-long reins apart from my being a relatively incompetent amateur!

    I probably let him pull them through my hands at some point on couse and...

    Yes, awful turn. In that picture, when I didn't get my lead off the jump, I panicked, looked down, and yanked my hand up. Oops. :no: I did get the lead but it was NOT pretty. The looking down in a...
  12. New show photos - am I still improving? Critique please?

    Thanks for another critique, everyone! Here is a link to the old pictures for comparison or for those of you who missed my two previous threads.

    Now I am considering the possibility that -...

    Mor4ward, I suggested the same (white shirt, white tie) to my barnmate. He has never done hunters, just eventing back in the olden days, but he seemed to believe that a white tie was somehow too...

    Colors for mens' show shirts?

    My barnmate is just about ready to step back into the show ring after many years away.

    His new coat is a very conservative dark navy in a herringbone weave. The lining is bright red (a great...

    My mother has a great quote for this too.

    When the subject of working out or getting in shape comes up, she always says, "Oh, I'm in shape. Round is a shape."

    But your mare doesn't look...

    I am thrilled when someone thinks my horse is fat, so I can't exactly relate, but you have lots of good advice here.

    I'd add that whenever there are both positive and negative options for how to...

    What a coincidence that you would call him a "friend" horse, because my pet name for him is Friend! As in, "How are you, Friend, oh, who's a good Friend, let's go to work, Friend," etc. :D (Except...

    Thanks, y'all, for your input!

    To fix my leg - more two-point? Transitions in two-point?

    I do tend to sit up too soon, good observation. I need to get in the habit of staying over longer . I...

    No, no, I should have mentioned that I own both. But it was faster to use the proof from online rather than scanning purchased print. I hope that is legit. I figured as long as I paid it didn't...
  20. updated 3'-move-up critique please? new show photos!

    I'm back with new show photos and hoping all my brilliant friends on the forum can shed some light on my newest question.

    Last time I asked for a critique, everyone agreed my stirrups were too...

    Rabicon, you sure do look familiar! I also did Rolling Hills a time or two on Gigi, my namesake here. I haven't done RMI in forever so probably I have not seen you there. In what part of town do you...

    Hey there Roisin! We've missed you! When can we ride together? Text me sometime. PM me if you need my cell # but I think you have it. Hope all is going well with Princess Mare! :)
  23. Thanks guys! I realized right before this round...

    Thanks guys! I realized right before this round that my stirrups had been feeling longer and longer - new leathers, two months old. Must have stretched? I know they were right at first! And geez,...
  24. always wanted to do this... critique please?

    So I have always wanted to get a critique from all my great friends on COTH. Last weekend I finally got a picture which I think is both attractive enough and interesting enough to merit asking for...

    Nittany Boots is my vote. I have heard complaints about quality, but I have had mine for three years of daily wear and they still look brand-new with a quick polish. I am not easy on my boots,...
