    Pippa's had terrible luck for sure. Also agree about Izzy Taylor-watching her go xc is brilliant. Fingers and toes crossed that nothing goes wrong for any of the US team-All six pairs give you...

    No to this. it's not about his breathing, it's about his joints. Walk until he's dropped some weight. And talk his owner into a grazing muzzle.

    Of the falls I remember, he had another fall with KOC (a corner?) in addition to the fall at B- and then he fell with his YR. So that's 2 MR's and the Badminton fall backwards off the mound which...

    I only saw him once in person with the young rider but I thought they looked very nice together and she looked like she knew what she was doing. It was disappointed that they had that fall because I...

    You might want to actually read the thread. No one said this latest was a horse fall. People were shocked that he was in the entries at all with ML given his last episode with his young rider and...

    Any horse that has had as many horse falls in competition as this one has does not need to be eventing. Particularly out of our team coach's barn. It sends a terrible message about horse welfare...

    As long as this really is just a mandatory outing and not a selection trial and they're not planning to use SJ performance to cut anyone from the team and replace them with another rider, then I...

    NC could use a lot more voters like Fred. It would be a much more pleasant place to live.

    Maybe the return is on extension? I'd be more likely to believe that than that they missed the deadline. Just a thought.

    I wonder if some of the mixed message from the USEF on this particular calming agent is because of a resignation that competitors will do anything to win and will always find some way to make their...

    With drug rules, you really need to be careful about using correct words because what you've written is a 180 degree change in what I've always understood to be the rules-i.e. if you are giving your...

    And I'm hugely relieved that Marilyn Little wasn't named the the squad. I don't trust her ability to get that horse through all three days and the day 3 jog regardless of her current ranking or the...

    I'm super super pleased with the list. Kim is an eventing legend (who would be comparable in SJ-Beezie?) and Sparky is IMO one of the best XC horses in the US. I saw him go brilliantly through a...

    Why are you listening to a h/j trainer about who should start your young dressage horse? Soft in the bridle could be good or it could be backed off. Just because he doesn't back her young h/j...

    I was the poster who said that she should only buy this horse if she'll be happy to show even if she never breaks 60. She said she wanted a horse to learn dressage on and show at the lower levels...

    If the answer to the following (downside) questions are all YES, then I'd go ahead and buy this horse:
    1-Can you afford retirement for this guy, including any required maintenance and a second...

    I think OP said she wants to show not much, about once a month. That's actually a normal amount of showing for summer at least in the north east.

    The problem with buying someone's lesson horse is that they are often worth more to the owner of the lesson program than they would be on the open market as a personal horse. It takes a very special...

    Since you'll be training with the former owner, with an older horse like this, switching careers, maybe a lease situation?
