    I know it is legal for recognized dressage shows, I have seen a couple worn in the past year or so, and quite frankly I would be shocked to hear of a score being affected because someone chose to...

    Mine gets spooky, and over-sensitive to leg aids - particularly in the tempis.

    I can't say it is one side or the other in particular - as he has a weaker left stifle so there is more effort in one...

    x2. We had a sale go bad in my barn between two boarders. Never wrote a bill of sale and the seller "changed her mind" after the last payment. It took the buyer 18 months to collect the money...

    That's good to hear about ex-trainer. The original post did not necessarily read that you were on good terms with her. Though distinctly possible that I am just reading into a situation based on how...

    Since lessee's trainer refuses to deal with you, I would be sure to send written notice to ex-trainer that they are not authorized to do anything in relation to Dobbin's lease. No extending it, no...

    A horse that gets in front of my leg and stays there pretty easily is really important to me in a horse that I want to go to at least third level. It is so much easier to gear them back than it is...

    Leaving aside your original experience - if you could tell us where you are located, and how far you are willing to go, it might help us give you more specific ideas.

    That's funny and oh so true. My husband deals in vintage audio equipment. He was recommended to a well-known pro athlete in our area who was looking to unload some items. The seller gave my...

    Here's my thing - any company is only as good as your local rep or as good as the corporate office. Whichever one is the least competent/user friendly is going to be the level of service you should...

    I second this idea - since it is summer, you may even be able to find a competent older teen that would at least do the mornings and some evenings to take some of the pressure off. I would be...

    And if this is a PC or YR championship that we are talking about - I think it is difficult for many of us to understand the level of pressure these kids are under from everyone - parents, trainers,...

    I remember the name of the horse, but have no recollection of how the horse was at shows at all. It's been quite a few years since I have seen him at a show, though according to Centerline, he has...

    I pay about $600 total (don't have the bill in front of me for the breakdown) for both hocks and one stifle (the stifle gets injected twice). So, seems pretty in line to me.

    I don't know if my account is different because I have a eBay store, but I get charged my eBay fees once a month, regardless of when the sale occurs. knock on wood, my sales have always exceeded the...

    Remember that for all the transactions gone bad that we hear about here - most transactions go just fine, or no one would ever use eBay. Rarely do people post about transactions that went great.

    One way to address it in the show ring is go with a conservative medium for the medium, and your full medium for the extended so that there is a difference. I have not seen someone obviously and...

    I read for my trainer once and she turned the wrong way after the first centerline. Proceeded to do 3/4 of the trot work going the wrong direction before the judge even noticed. I'm reading the...

    We've got a mare at the barn that just went on it last month - and it made her super looky and spooky. They are thinking that they don't have the dosage quite right yet - and our regular vet is a...

    Couple of thoughts for you -

    Try as I might, I have never been able to get my horse to stay sound without shoes. I know you said he tears his shoes off, but that is why there are bell boots. I...

    Definitely you need to factor in the availability of parts/service for a "off" brand.

    We bought a Jinma. Got a great deal on a barely used tractor with a FEL. Has been a challenge to find parts,...

    Though I said 3 pages ago that I was bowing out of this - I just have to say - I can't believe this insanity is still going on.

    No one is going to change anyone else's mind on this subject.

    And...
