    When talking about adding strides, it becomes an issue of "best of the worst" type scenario. No, there is no reason why any modestly athletic horse going a decent pace couldn't do the strides (and...

    For me, I typically give scores in the 60s for adding in lines and in the 50s for adding in the in-and-out. Every judge is a little different but that is pretty normal (and what they teach at USEF...

    For those saying that its not so bad because the video was to show off the rider... Do you think drugging a horse for an equitation class at a show is also okay? Most colleges are fairly competitive...

    I actually do have some clients with very small budgets. With those that cannot afford to pay for professional rides, I do it for free (if its just once or twice) or in trade for stall cleaning, etc....

    To each their own. I personally have never had a horse that wasn't quieted down with suitable amounts of hand walking. But it's difficult to compare- every horse is different, every injury is...

    As far as rehab- I would sedate for hand walking but not for riding. But that's just me. When we have been dealing with horses coming off stall rest, we start with hand walking in a controlled manner...

    Keep searching for a new barn. There ARE hunter/jumper barns out there who don't medicate (at shows or at home). Your other option would be to board at a dressage or eventing barn and haul to H/J...

    It all boils down to ethics... How much prep (drugs, lunging, endless warm up classes) is enough and how much is too much? Where do we draw the line between "sophisticated use" and "excessive use" of...

    At the USHJA annual meeting this topic always comes up and we always have someone (or several someone's) begging to bring back Ace because it would create a safer option than trying out...

    I personally don't think PP does much and I realize that it doesn't cause any harm to the horse. However, it is the attitude from the pros that is harmful.

    The problem arises when we have a horse...

    To those who say that perfect prep is okay because "the horse may have a magnesium deficiency", here is a thought... Give your horse a better balanced diet and/or give magnesium as a DAILY supplement...

    Thanks everyone for the feedback!

    I've thought about putting in a grob... How deep/steep would you make it and how long? They seem like a drainage nightmare if you make them too deep.

    Personally, I always look at the highest element of the jump.

    We are going to be putting in a grass jumper field at our new barn and I had a few questions. This field will be serving a few different purposes- it will hopefully add to the aesthetics of the farm,...

    Holstein is definitely on my to do list. I've been fortunate enough to go to Europe a couple times for the international young breeders championships where I was able to visit with many of the...

    Thanks Bayhawk, this was the type of thing I was looking for. I feel like this type of information can probably only be gained from talking with experienced breeders (not necessarily the type of info...

    Stamm/mare line characteristics

    There is always a lot of discussion on what characteristics/traits certain sire lines produce but what about the different mare lines? Obviously mares don't produce as many offspring as stallions (so...

    Make sure to order a salad and water, then halfway through the salad declare "I'm stuffed!". He will appreciate that ;)

    Thanks for all of the suggestions so far! Are there any shows in California that have a large number of entries on the HB division?
  21. Which shows have the most hunter breeding entries?

    I'm finishing up my judge's card and need to find a show that has a strong hunter breeding division (in order to be licensed for the hunter breeding division you have to judge at least 10 horses)....

    The reason I ask is that I have a 17 year old broodmare that has been open for 7-8 years. She had a uterine culture and biopsy last summer when we got her. The culture was clean and biopsy was scored...
  23. Question about breeding older, open mares

    Is it more common for an older mare who has been left open for a few years to have trouble getting pregnant OR staying pregnant (losing foal anytime during pregnancy)?
  24. Poll: I've done USEF hunter judges clinic as well as...

    I've done USEF hunter judges clinic as well as non-USEF sport horse breeding judges clinics (emphasis on both jumpers and dressage potential in young horses). They have all been great but the best...

    That sounds pretty normal to me. If I had to guess, Anne's horse went close to the top of the order and had a so-so round. Then the 1st place horse who scored the 85 likely went shortly after. At...
