    Another re-rider here. I'm celebrating my 5th year back riding after my 25 year break. I do the High A/O jumpers, some smaller GP's and have just moved one of my jumpers over to the A/O hunters and...

    I don't know much about that area or who to refer you to - but I am sincerely hoping that FINALLY we will meet at a show someday soon and that I will run into you in Kentucky, or Culpepper or Blowing...

    I buy the GP half chaps because they are the most comfortable and I like them best. That being said - I ride multiple horses and they do NOT last. The suede ones are even worse than the regular...

    I audited the clinic he did down here in Texas last week at Hillcrest Farm. It was great. I thought he paid a lot of attention to the unique qualities of each horse and while he expected people to...

    [QUOTE=hntrjmprpro45;4537525]The tap should come as soon as you feel it slow down/stopping. This tells the horse, hey go forward at the jump not backwards (this is more of what GM is getting at)....

    I would tend to agree with the GM philosophy. Unless it's a HORRIBLE distance that the horse simply cannot jump from - then a focused smack behind the leg is appropriate. Unfortunately - horses are...

    Exactly. I find the nasty comments amusing. I spent years grooming and tacking up my horses w/ no help. I am more than happy and capable of doing it. In reality, I just cannot afford the time now...

    I am a working mom who runs a company, and rides 2-3 horses every morning after I go to the gym for an hour, take my son to school and before I go to work. I simply could not get it done every day...

    I love the Innovation and use it for one of my jumpers. Most people I know with Innovations are using them in the jumper ring.

    THAT is the reason the Europeans beat us. When you go to Europe's biggest competitions, they are copying the style of our American riders in many ways. Sorry - but 90% of the whole thing boils down...

    DNP can mean a variety of things. I think you are asking WAY too much if you expect to never see a DNP. Even amazing horses occassionally have bad days. My horses win consistently, but depending on...

    I showed my best Jr. hunter in the Regulars as well "back in the day" in the late 70's. It was common and not looked upon as being extraordinary. And I did it at 13 years old. Nobody patted me on...

    My Holsteiner jumper is a paint on one side and solid on the other with four white feet and "headlights" on the front. He is GORGEOUS and jumps like a freak. He had a very very successful year back...
