    What I saw looked more like good old FB griping than making recommendations. If I show my horse and have an issue with the rules under which the class is held (or how those rules impact actual...

    Since you will be working and riding, be prepared to do some quick changes from groom to rider. A pair of nylon track pants that can be worn over breeches might come in handy. A ball cap or rain hat...

    Gumtree, not that I am super well connected but feel free to send me any info you have on the Scat Daddy baby. I'm at the track most days and would be happy to spread the world about him.

    Secretariat sired a few nice colts but none were standouts in the breeding shed so he just doesn't appear in the top line but rarely. However, Secretariat was a wonderful broodmare sire. In fact sons...

    WARNING: I am staring with some assumptions that may be corrected by OP.

    I am guessing that the barn where OP rides is not a regular A/AA show barn. Most such barns have all the fancy jumps and...

    ^^ Being as money is fungible, charging "ring" or "office" or other fees, free up other money for the GP's or other big $$$ classes. Sponsors do put up a good bit of the money, but not all of it all...

    He didn't appear sulky or sullen to me. He stopped at a fairly basic question with an upper level rider and that is a problem but then he continued. For all we know, there was some distraction beyond...

    The hundreds of sub-3' competitors, from W-T through Rusty Stirrup and Modified Somethings are all pitching into the horse show's coffers. All those people and their stall fees and grounds fees and...

    That Butet is nice but it's got 6 days left on ebay and is already $150 over budget before any bids are recorded and without shipping.

    If I were looking and wanted to stay local I'd look to FB or...

    If I were looking for a paid lease (presuming you mean you are paying a fee to use the horse + a % of his monthly board and upkeep) I wouldn't be looking for a horse that I would effectively be...

    Actually the slavish use of striding is relatively recent. When hunters showed over hunt courses judges weren't sitting there counting to 24 between fences. The jumps mattered, getting lead changes...

    Since owner has tipped you off to horse going to a show it seems she hasn't given up on the deal. Try to ride him at the show and maybe arrange a PPE. Be sure to have cash and a trailer (preferably...

    I'm not a judge but I'd guess that it's somewhat discretionary. Clearly the judge wanted to reward the smoothness of the trip, good lead changes etc and the 8 nice jumps and being as it was a...

    Bustin Stones has had several ... ahem ... suggestively named foals. Bustin Stones was (is) owned by a friend of mine who is in the sand and gravel business. I'm sure he argued that the name referred...

    I have hard terms like "cocktail" used and since the kid probably had no idea what was in the shot, she probably wouldn't have used pharmaceutical name so "relaxation shot" seems plausible.

    OP,...

    Last May I visited Xctrygirl in SePa and had a frustrating lesson on her "old pro" on Thursday. The next day I had a great lesson on her young up and comer. On the schedule for Sunday was the...

    But, JT isn't just any USEF member, he's a ranking official at a major competition.
    I am on the board of a local affiliate. If I take to FB midway through one of our shows and take a critical view...

    Good for you! Having had a nearly new Beval stolen a few years ago (never recovered) I am happy that someone's theft story may have a happy ending.

    When someone takes the job of judging a competition (with the expectation of being paid for the job) they are effectively lending tacit approval the event. As a high ranking participant in the...

    I have argued for years that the JC can and should recognize the status "retired." The status goes with him and any future owner who presents papers for racing will thus be denied entry.

    The question reminds me of the old quip "Nobody goes there any more, it's too crowded!"

    From what I have seen, the huge classes are typically in the lower levels where you get a blend of riders...

    HITS takes a bunch of bashing and much of it is deserved, but what are the options? Vermont runs early July to almost mid August. From Albany, I can get to HITS a bit faster mainly highway miles....

    If I fall and bust myself up, the texting trainer is not the cause but if the jumps sucked I want her to be able to tell me why.

    Constant, instant access is a curse and a blessing. In an...

    I agree with Lady Eboshi. Standards have become extreme. Every year there is a big confab and everyone says "Yes, lets allow the hunters to be expressive!" and the crowd cheers and the horses with...

    You are supposed to get a steward to intervene between a rider and a judge. If I had submitted a ride for critique and been happy with the results I might consider approaching a steward to speak with...
