    While I'm out of commission, my trainer's riding my guy, and she's working mostly on jumping with him. (He's a cautious animal, and I'm a timid rider, and neither of us knew how to jump. So now one...

    I'm lucky in that (usually) my guy is a "stop and let him look at it" type. I head right for the judge when I enter the ring (before the bell), stop and let him look, say hi and my number to the...

    Granted, it was a schooling show, and I'm the opposite of conservative (I ride an Appy mule fercrissake), but I wore a navy-and-lime-green-with-polka-dots belt. Would do again.

    ETA: And I guess...

    I board/ride at Allan & Clover in Brandywine. I love Sam and Jennifer.

    Also, you don't have to be a MDCTA member to get their emails. I don't even know how I got on their list, but it's where...

    Well, I forgot a girth one show when I was a kid, and my little Arab required a teeny girth. I sat in the truck and BAWLED, because my life was RUINED, my mom asked around and found someone with a...

    I wear an air vest w/o a hard shell all the time. I'm a dressage rider, I don't own a hard vest. I wear it when I jump or ride outside.

    I've fallen wearing it two or three times. I fit it as...

    Well, you all sure don't look weenie compared to me! I'm a dressage rider who doesn't jump outdoors yet, or jump anything taller than say 15 inches... But two weeks ago we dressed up and played...

    Poles. Or even better, jumps. Beastie loves it.

    He also loved playing in the water obstacle at a local Horse Trials last weekend. LOVED it. The bicyclists in the bushes, not so much!

    I was planning to go Sunday, but apparently that's off the table now. I may go tomorrow with my barnmates just to play in the water. :-)

    I agree - it's like a hillock or a ball or whatever just pops up under my saddle. I've only felt it for a few strides at a time, mostly because I get all wide-eyed in shock and fall apart while...

    My guy has this same bit. And the version with hooks for jumping/trail. He liked it much better than the other bits I'd tried before this one (single joint baucher, French link full cheek). I tried...

    A crowd from my barn went and had a great time - I've only heard wonderful things about Marlborough. I might even go the 5th, if only to play in the water or *maybe* follow someone over some actual...

    LOL - I have your animal! Except he's a mule... But I do love him, and we're learning to jump together. Otherwise we typically do dressage.

    We've established mules can jump. They can do dressage, too - this is last October. (I'm posting this here because I do like to brag about my boy, he IS wonderful.) We got a ridiculously high...

    I haven't braided Wash's mane yet, although we did a number of schooling shows last year. But his mane sticks straight up in a mohawk, so if I keep it trimmed down to a decent shape it stays...

    Huh, didn't know that! See, obviously NOT a jumper in any way, shape or form... Although we're working on getting to the level of being able to fake it. :)

    I've got a mule I ride dressage. While horses are often *quite* interested in him, I've only met one who lost his mind at the sight of my guy - and that horse is a bit batshit to start with. ...

    OP - if I got the kind of comments you had, I'd be crying in the corner. HOWEVER, I'm grateful that all I've heard, to my face at least, was how cute and cool my off-breed is. I take heart that I...
