    ...the blood curdling scream turned out to be a pony mom closing out her check at the show office. But, back to our story, the CT arrives in Canada and notices that the OP isn't in the trailer...

    If there's a judge so uneducated that he/she can't tell the difference between dropping your reins in a line and petting your horse after a round then that's just pathetic. I've been around showing...

    ...and trusty gelding slides under OP right before she crashes to the ground! TG slows to a trot and then a walk with the greatful OP and MO.

    Meanwhile CT doesn't realize OP had escaped and...

    This is a very public horse who has represented the US in the Olympics. I have expressed my concern about the effect on the sport of eventing if he has another horrid fall. IMHO that's quite...

    I really don't think it's about the money. Some years ago there was a thread on Mandiba here on COTH and some of his people came on here and explained how he's so well bred and really can do it. Many...

    One of my concerns, other than just hating to see this horse still being pushed into doing what he obviously doesn't want to for years, is that if he's pushed to a level where he has another horrible...

    Will it ever stop?

    I just got a text from a friend who's at Loch Moy today. She just saw ML riding Mandiba in the OI and they had a stop at a pretty straightforward combination on xc. I had thought this horse was...

    I like to use offset groups of poles, (about 3' apart for the walk) and the next set is ahead and to the left so you leg yield left to go over that set then leg yield right to the next.

    You can...

    I actually really liked Karen's commentary and I'm not always her biggest fan. Yes, she shouldn't have made the mistakes about Sally, but that stuff does happen.

    I'd actually be interested in her...

    Well, I remember the not-so-long-ago rush to buy dark shirts and I think it was much nicer than what's going on now. You can't tell anyone apart these days, I don't know how the judges do it!

    Love him! I think he looks a bit foot sore but very typical for a horse in his situation. Definitely worth a vetting. I don't see him as hot at all. I see a very good boy who's trying to figure stuff...

    While I may not agree with everything Doug says, I applaud him for his willingness to speak out here. It always amazes me that many on this forum complain about so much in the sport but are then...

    I'm so sorry to hear that. I hate prepurchase exams for just this reason! There's no reason to blame yourself, some horses are just predisposed to arthritis like some people are. And he could do very...

    I agree with everyone that there need to be requirements for competing at least for safety's sake. And $25 a day horse use fee is too low since you're also losing income that the horse might generate...

    I agree that you've made good choices on these horses. What's also apparent here is that these young horses may have been worked too hard at a young age so more problems could show up later. I'd be...

    I've given plenty of people leads from FB or even just people I know. I'd only expect 10% if I actively looked at a horse. I would never expect anything for handing over a phone # from FB. That's...

    I agree that BN could be quite a bit more straightforward than we see it sometimes. The mini-Burghley courses don't make sense to me. If you've got green horses and/or riders, why are there coffins,...

    I used to have a horse that stopped like that and it's very difficult to ride. I can't tell you how many times I fell off and how nervous about jumping it made me. It turned out to be a hind end/SI...
