    Great, there goes my productivity this morning...sitting here learning French instead of organizing my apartment :lol:

    Personally, I would go for the CWD - I'm more comfortable in one of those than in a Butet, but it depends on your build. I have stubby little legs with short femurs.
  3. What kind of leather is the CWD?

    I use one! I get mine from Brookstone - it's made with memory foam and it is GREAT. It's the only way that I made it through living in a college dorm :lol:. It does take a little getting used to...

    Way too early - but based on previous years, I would think the cutoff will be somewhere in the area of 3000 points.

    Yes, as far as I know, there is no amateur requirement for NAYRC.

    Everyone says that. Then some people get screwed. Most don't - but some do.

    Get it in writing.

    I don't know why I'm trying to explain it to you, because I'm getting the feeling that no matter what anyone says, you're going to be stuck in your opinion, which is that giving your horse anything...

    I almost never wear makeup anyway - I'll use a touch of eyeliner and mascara if I'm going somewhere fancy, so I never take it or wear it to the barn.

    I do tend to get dirt "makeup" on my face...

    Unless I'm reading the details wrong, you have a lot working against you with selling this horse.

    - Thoroughbreds in the H/J world are a tougher sell than a warmblood.

    I cut Nikki's mane. I don't have thinning shears, so I use a wee pair of scissors that I have in my braiding kit and just cut up into the mane. Works a lot better for me than pulling it.

    I might be willing to take the chance on an EPM horse if it had the talent to do what I wanted and hadn't relapsed or had significant neuro symptoms to begin with.

    My mare had EPM when I bought...

    I have the TS cotton schooling breeches and I think they run true to size - I wear a child's 12 and my jeans are 00 short, so I think that's roughly comparable.

    Oh for god's sake, they are not illegal drugs. This posturing is just ridiculous. "Drugging" a horse is referring to giving it something against USEF rules. Giving a horse a LEGAL...

    OP, I retrained my teenaged horse to do jumpers after she'd done the hunters her entire life... it worked out super well and we've both had a blast. Don't assume you can't do something else without...

    Trixie, if you're ever in the Twin Cities, or if you somehow find yourself showing in Iowa with me, I owe you a drink.

    I'm saddened by the number of people who are telling the OP to just find a different discipline.

    You can be successful in the hunters without doing anything illicit. You have to have a...
