    There are plenty of managers that don't ride, or if they do, only do so occasionally for pleasure. Managing the horses and facility is a specialty in itself. The best managers I know hardly ever...

    I second all the above.

    IME, the best hires come from word of mouth, and most experienced people I know in the horse buisness don't use classified services to find new jobs. ....of course, in...

    I particularly apreciate a judge that is compassionate about a tough ride. Most recently apreciate Kristi Wysocki for such - did not give a score away, but was fair and compassionate (even helpful)...

    I like black on a black horse and navy for everything else. Love some of the new color options, but feel like they draw a lot of attention.... if only I could afford one of everything!

    Just because the second teacher is using more gentle methods in the name of "French Classical" doesn't mean she is correct. No one can tell without being there. Make sure the other horses in her...

    Ah. Thanks. Since I compete, I didn't read that thread, therefore had no idea that's how this one started....

    The horse should become muscled from the proper foundation in the training. Before achieving advanced levels of collection, the horse's strength should be developed over years of good transitions...

    I find Pierre to be just as good with a TL ride as GP. He is an extraordinary teacher, and manages to find simple solutions to problems that seemed complex. I think you would be very pleased to see...

    A finished bridle horse in the Vaquero tradition IS the equivalent of an FEI level dressage horse. To compare a finished bridle horse to a lower level dressage horse is not a fair comparison at all....

    I didn't say RK is OK. What I don't like is the hypocrocy in these discussions. Most of the people I know personally that make a big deal of RK are engaged in other things that are hurting their...

    Wow, kalidascope!

    All I'd like to add to that is this:
    A horse really can only be as good as it's rider. A fancy mover doesn't move fancy unless the rider knows how to get out of it's way, and...

    Depends on what you consider abuse. I see the average rider causing much more discomfort to their horses the the average display of rk.

    I think poorly fitting saddles are worse.

    Sometimes having the trainer involved like this is a blessing for everyone. ....and I personally have never seen a trainer warm up a client's horse for any other reason.

    It seems to me that oldenburgs and hannovarians are nearly interchangeable. My horse has mostly oldenburg blood, but hannovarian papers. Many of the stallions are approved for multiple registries,...
