    about the look

    I am from the "old school" no question about that, but to me it is more about the look...the bit looks incomplete when the lip strap is not there...a lot more so than every hunter having to wear a...

    Lip Strap on Pelham

    I haven't posted on Coth in a while, but I have this burning question...

    I have been noticing that lip straps are not being used on Pelham bits (and full bridles as well). The hole is there for...

    Well, my mare is a jumper and jumper's tails are not clipped or pulled, at least is this area. I guess then that we won't be hard to single out...just look for the chestnut mare with the big butt...

    I will be there with my mare for the non-Hanoverian inspection. This is all new to me so I think it will be a real learning experience. Question: Do I really need to pull or clip the top of my...

    Ummh, admitted, I have not read this entire thread...but, perhaps Mr. Paul should burn in hell with Michael Vick. The man should not be allowed anywhere near a horse, or any other animal.

    No doubt, an amazing accomplishment. I always love looking at pictures of Lillie on her ponies. Big Congratulations to her.

    Not to worry. So...people get to express their opinions. Even though a bit snarky, there is still a lot of value to be had...at least a lot of entertainment value. :winkgrin:

    c_expresso does not need any encouraging. She is a 16 year old who has no respect for posters with way more experience than her, and who thinks she is a BNT because of all the experience she had at...

    Blossom, do you not jump at home? Are you seeing your distances at least from the corners? Do you not need to practice? Do you show often? Yes, the packer does not need to jump at home, but those...

    Your post does not make sense. So, you are saying that it is likely that if a horse is handled by grooms, that a rider will be prettier, but the horse will be dangerously on its forehand because the...

    Blossom, believe me, you STILL are a kid and you still have a LOT to learn...and what the heck does keeping the horse balanced have to do with feeding hay and taking care of the barn?

    Oh, now that is the best idea yet...tiny little ribbons for those cheapy unfancy, but good, horses. :cool:

    We schooled in the ring early in the mornings and sometimes warmed up in the barn isles. Sometimes there was no other ring. Then again, I rode in the 50's and early 60's. I have no 70's horseshow...

    Harry, I do not know where you are from but, in California, if an amateur could not jump 4' - 4'3" there was no where they could show. There were no classes at lower heights. Riders did not count...

    1. No doubt, the OP loves the attention.

    2. Maybe she does not care about "going anywhere" with her horse. Not everybody does.

    It is true, the pictures are taken later, but the horses of the 60's were not rounded up like the horses of today. They galloped, jumped much bigger and were flatter. I do not know when the change...

    Things were different then. The horses had to be able to jump much higher. None of this 3' stuff, and none of the inbetween divisions. Green horses showed open as well as green because it was all...
