    I don't know about legality, but I wouldn't recommend giving any treats to the horses. I am waaay too old for IHSA, but I work with our local team, announce frequently at the shows, warm up horses...

    What's your budget? Rather than trying to get a repair shop to fiddle with stock boots, could you possibly consider customs from a shop like A.M. Kroop in Maryland? Randy does beautiful work, has...

    This is a really interesting thread. I am charmed by the picture of Chowder, and I would like to find out more about the Pets of the Homeless organization.

    Soooo sorry. DH had a volleyball accident years ago (circa 1985?) and has had chronic back pain ever since. He has passed out from the pain on several occasions. He (sort of) manages it with regular...

    Keep doing what you are doing. I am a teacher, too, and last winter I suffered a terrible case of bronchitis. I strained my voice teaching; in addition, I am a member of a choir, and we were...

    You have got to be kidding. Eventers, please ignore this. You may have noticed that I have posted on your forum occasionally!

    I believe this. When I was a kid, I used to be able to mount from the ground bareback, too. That was loooooong ago, and now, I need the mounting block.

    I remember reading somewhere about using a ruler to achieve the perfect drop. I think this technique has been mentioned several times. Here's one thread I found from the Dressage forum:

    Was thinking of you today. I'm sorry--especially that people were questioning you. That doesn't make a hard thing (but the right thing) any easier.

    RIP, Bailey.

    People are getting awfully touchy. OP did specifically request "honest opinions" and said, "I want to hear it all!"

    So, we're hearing it. People have opinions--no surprise there.

    Lots and lots of mileage at smaller shows is what I would suggest. Maybe bag the A shows until you've both gained more confidence. There's something very rewarding, too, about bringing along your...

    OK, so it's not as bad as I thought. She's still not respecting you as she should; however, I envisioned her actually pushing you and walking over you.

    She absolutely needs to learn that she is...

    Classy, I don't recommend "not making a big deal" of pushiness. Horses are so much bigger than we are that we can't let the pushy ones forget for a minute who is the "alpha mare"--in this case, you!...

    You've gotten great advice from everyone. The green horse will take his cue from the rider, who should have the confidence and experience to communicate to the horse, "you will march straight down...

    Wow, good thing you noticed in time. I'll bet this girl had never used a toaster oven. Maybe not a regular oven, either! Better keep an eye on the paper shredder--who knows what she may try to put in...

    This is hard, but you need to euthanize that dog. Not only are your cats at risk, but he is a lawsuit waiting to happen. Make the right decision.

    This is the technique I regularly used with a horse I rode who had a really wispy mane. I did it when the trainer wasn't around, and no one ever knew! ;)

    Seriously, he had hardly any mane. It was...

    OP, you are in a really tough spot. How about if you have your vet write a recommendation/assessment of this dog's condition and sign it? Bring that in to the AC people and ask them to reconsider.
