    The tracks are usually the same aside from removing B and/or C elements from combinations at the lower levels. I personally like this for the sake of simplicity because I can walk SJ whenever,...

    Go for it and go have fun! While a horse that maintains a more consistent connection is going to place higher in the dressage, they shouldn't have too high of expectations at Starter. There are...

    While an event horse shouldn't necessarily have the same way of going as a show hunter, I do think the mentality that "it's not hunters, it's eventing so it doesn't need to look pretty" can sometimes...

    I tend to agree that a stop should be much more highly penalized than a single rail, although it usually is once time faults are added ... But why didn't they make it, say, 5 instead of 4, so that...

    Does it look something like this?

    I think it's definitely possible that as eventers have started to work on the dressage a lot more, the stadium training has taken a hit.

    Also, most of the lower level events these days are run as...

    I live in the wrong half of the state to be close to Bartville Harness ... Which is too bad, because I've always liked the Nunn Finer stuff. Maybe at some point I'll have an excuse to be out that...

    So, I keep forgetting to take an actual tape measure to the barn with me to measure my reins, but I definitely have two very different lengths of "horse" size reins (came with the bridle).

    Also, although forums like this one can be a great source of advice and information, some posters (especially the ones who spend more time studying riding than they do on a horse) tend to see...

    My horse used to never collect and go in a frame right ... But then went to a clinic with The Maestro and it made such a difference! Now my horse can piaffe and levade and it's all thanks to his...

    I never realized bikinis were considered so scandalous in this day and age. On a woman who became famous as a swimsuit model, no less.

    Hahaha ... I think the commercials are cute, but that one came on while I was at work ... My (non-horsey) co-workers laughed at me when I said, "that isn't how a horse actually moves its legs!"

    Stupid question about rein sizing

    So, my current horse is a 15.2ish Appendix. Horse size reins seem to be a bit too long for him, and I end up with a ridiculous amount of excess ... However, in my brief online search for a slightly...

    The irony is, draft crosses seem to be one of the most popular types out in the actual hunt field these days, so many of them must be quite good foxhunters! However, I think we can all agree that...

    Granted, I'm speaking as someone who competes in lower level eventing which usually has quite a bit more "diversity" especially at the lower levels than does the hunter ring or pure dressage, but I...

    Why are we so convinced that being in the Olympics somehow gives eventing popularity that it doesn't otherwise have?

    I have yet to meet a non-horsey person that has said "oh yeah, I watched that...

    Honest question ... Are these "gender reveal" parties that seem to be the new fad in addition to also having a "regular" baby shower?
