    Sorry, I didn't see him "bash" anything. All he did was agree.

    Erm, I do this for fun, and it is fun, but it doesn't stop moments where you occasionally freeze up. To me, that's just kind of part of it sometimes.

    My mom is like that. We never forget the jumper show where she and my jumper, who was a total priss, were hanging out in the tent sipping lemonade together as mother is wearing a khaki skirt, a...

    On purpose? No. If I have a plan to go somewhere or do something or have a reason to look extra tidy, sure. It's whatever makes you happy.

    Wait, I'm not supposed to wear a show coat when I ride at home?

    I thought she looked surprisingly good, really. And I'm not a fan.

    Start at home. My course is presently a nice combination of gates, flowers, poles, and planks. Does every facility have one? No. Are they easy and cheapish to build? Certainly.

    I found a bunch of...

    No way. 2 weeks is standard notice on any job. 3 months? She should've come up with something well before it got to this point or at least given her boarders some real warning, not just a week or...

    Donkey in a flag blanket?

    A few years ago I seem to remember someone posting the absolute cutest picture of a donkey wearing an American flag blanket.

    Any chance that person is still around and I could get a copy? I...

    I'm pretty sure one would be able to find a hunter trainer who doesn't drug, either. I've found several. They even manage to compete successfully. Most of them just work very hard to find horses who...

    I definitely agree on a lot of what was said above - gloves, hairnets, etc. Maybe toss a few breakaway crownpieces and I know I never seem to have safety pins. I also would love it if there were a...

    Supershorty, come east. I'd love to see you get on my ponies and you know, we have cookies.

    The rules are the rules... and they are blessedly unspecific. As long as you're tidy and not breaking them, I can't see an issue at bigger shows. If it says "choker or tie," take your pick. I like...

    Um, no.

    I concentrate on what I am doing with my own horse. That's where my goals start and end, unless I am riding a different horse. Then I concentrate on riding that horse. And riding a good...

    I agree. Basically, all I see is the OP complaining about something she doesn't know anything about.

    OP, I am also an amateur with a farm, a family, and a job. I've managed to pull off being a...

    Erm, well I know because I have my horses at home and ship to our trainer. I also trust her ethics enough that when he was boarded there, he wasn't given anything he wasn't supposed to get.

    I was kind of thinking the same thing. It's a horse show. 99% of the time, everyone there can be considered privileged. I'm really not quite sure what that poster was going for on this particular...

    You know what, maybe you should go just jump your horse around 3' fences at home. Any sport with competition has cheaters. That means just about ALL OF THEM. So, no more sports and no more competing....

    I'm gathering since you've snapped to an immediate "all wrong" that you're not going to bother discussing your concerns with your trainer.

    Further, if you truly "consider personal integrity to be...

    "Irrefutable proof?"

    It sounds like what you actually have is a question that hasn't been answered yet and a lot of ridiculous hyperbole. No, the entire sport doesn't drug.

    I was grooming for a friend at HITS about a week ago and had this thread in mind, as I stood in line at the wash stall and noted that NUMEROUS riders were taking care of their own horses.

    Exactly what lrp says. This is absolutely lunacy on the part of the USEF, and overreach.

    Am I going to get fined now for saying that?

    If I make it to the Olympics, I'm braiding in pink sparkles. Damn it, at that point I've earned my right to have any color I want.
