    Agree on schooling passes, vegetarian lunches and clear communication about who's supposed to be where and when. Email is great for this.

    Also, make sure volunteers know how to get to their...

    This is why the good lord gave us baling twine! I just cut it off and toss it periodically.

    Trailering alone is the only surefire way I've found to fix this. Sometimes horse is just a little antsy away from his new BFF, and other times there's much screaming and drama involved. I'll go to...

    I've used the Desitin + antibiotic ointment + antifungal combination with success (love buying all that stuff in large quantities at the drugstore!) This year, I've been slathering the area with...

    No! My itchy-faced TB either rubbed it off on the fence (shredding it a bit more each time), lost it playing with his youngster friend (chewed up velcro) or just left it in the dust more often than...

    Sorry I didn't see this sooner; it would be fun to be on a team sometime!

    Glad everyone had good days. I was happy with my new BN test, stadium was no problem and then my horse stopped at a small,...

    Straight line! With a mini leg yield to get you onto the track, says my instructor.

    I thought this test was funny-looking, but it flows pretty smoothly and I was happy with my scores when I rode...

    Aw, bummer! Looks like I'll have to start investigating other options...I'll be out of town for Fair Hill, I usually volunteer at Carousel and Burgundy Hollow is quite a hike. Oy.

    I'll be there on Friday! I had a lesson yesterday to get my head around the new Beginner Novice dressage test. Fingers crossed that rote memory won't take over and I will remember that weird short...

    I definitely school more for me than my been-there-done-that horse. I like to go maybe once a month during the season, and I absolutely school a level higher than I show - doing this religiously has...

    Just checking in to add another vote for Sally! She has improved my confidence tremendously. One thing I really appreciate about her is that she treats her students with the same respect and...

    Holy cow, there's a lot of nice-looking horses in that feed pen! That grey mare all braided up to go off to slaughter is heartbreaking.

    The Paint might be a little straight in the shoulder and...

    Listening to the commentary without being able to see what's going on is PAINFUL.

    Wait, a horse! I see a horse!

    Alison Springer tied for 1st IN A HELMET! :D

    That was a gorgeous test and I actually think the GR8 looks better than the old-timey top hats.

    Poor Kelly Prather. No one warned her horse about...

    I think Kelly Prather nailed it - she looks clean and professional and fit. Loved Lauren Kieffer's and Stephanie Rhodes-Bosch's belted dresses, too.

    Mara Dean's jacket is gorgeous, but it commits...

    I enjoyed the Twittering last year too! US Eventing is Twittering away this year, though.

    I just bought the package and logged in - so far, so good. The dressage still says "available soon" and doesn't play yet. I guess they'll start it right at 9?

    I don't know much about her dam's bloodlines, but Hail to Reason and Hoist the Flag on top? Very cool. I hope she finds a fantastic home! :yes:

    This is a $10 charge at my barn. My good horse stands on crossties (or if you just drape the lead rope over his neck), but the barn manager still has to hike out to his pasture, catch him and hike...

    That lone rogue schooler makes me really nervous - what if something had happened and nobody knew you were out there?? My friend and I wandered through the woods for a good while on the schooling day...

    This is a great point. I haven't done a hunter pace, but I've been tagging along with a friend who loves paper chases. They are all the fun of XC without the dressage! Last fall, I figured out that...

    I hit the farrier jackpot with the guy I use. Most importantly, he takes good care of the horses' feet. He is also super reliable and easy to get ahold of. When I call about a lost or sprung shoe,...

    Ha - sad but true!

    I hope they'll be streaming everything online again this year. I really enjoyed watching all the rides last year; well worth what they charged for it.
