And I am surprised that "French Letters" got past the JC censors.
My sentiments exactly.
Mostly I don't read it. But if I do it is with "a whole shaker of salt".
When I have 2 horses is work, I find it is usually more productive to ride each one for an hour, on alternate days.
I am pretty concientious about 10 minutes walk at the beginning and the end.
Probably 2005 or 2006.
And I mis quoted, the Max is 1 1/4 inches (1.25"), not 1 1/2 (1.5)
The rules REQUIRE shallower cups than used to be common.
Min 3/4 inch, ideal 1", max 1 1/2 inch.
Another vote for Triple Crown Lite.
And I am pretty sure that in THIS part of the country, Southern States manufatures the TC feeds themselves.
My season so far.
April - CDCTA II HT. Dressage goes OK. Show Jumping clean but inconsistent pace. About a third of te way through cross country, Bele jumps "something" that isn't there, and I...
My vet had remarkable success on his own horse with electrostimulation of the nerve.
His horse went from dead lame to foxhunting again (as a whip's horse).
The horse was not responding to any...
I know it would be a bit of a drive, but if you come to the Warrenton Pony Show this Sunday afternoon, you should see a variety of purebred and halfbred Connemaras, both in hand and under saddle.
Heard an NPR piece about this too.
It sounded as if the major increase in speed was over SHORT distances (see ref to 6 furlongs in the article).
The radio piece also referred to an increase in...
I am 61.
I fully intend to Event for another 10 years.
The time to quit is when it stops being fun.
I would not count on that.
When we sold (in 2010) my fathers house (built in 1902, he/we had lived there since 1965) the only things listed that had been replaced were the roof and the water...
Go by the actual LENGTH of rhe reins (in inches) rather than the NAME (Horse, cob, pony).
Lots of variation within each name.
If you have been eliminated in one phase, you can request permission to participate in subsequent phases. It is entirely at the discretion of the Organizing Committee and the Ground Jury (or the...
The rule itself is perfectly clear (as I quoted below/above), but it is placed where it is easy to miss. I think it would be better to put it at the BEGINNING of the dress section instead of the...
Probably an editing error, as she grew up in MA, and her family was very active in Eventing in MA.
Hoping for some news- ANY news, but preferably good.
Maybe I am blind, but I do not see anything about GABA in that link.
Ace, Dex, Bute, but not GABA.
The original Poldark series has a sentimental place in my memory, I hope the new one lives up to it.
I grew up in a household without television (though we watched it when we wisited friends. ...
Chief is fine.
Yventer is saying he "was" a quick learner, referring to the time SHE was riding him in 2012.
Neither Yventer nor I are his CURRENT owner or rider.
When does Poldark start?
As a buyer, I have always done the PPE where the horse was stabled.
As a seller, all but one vetting has also been where the horse was stabled. The one exception is where the buyer's former vet...
I work full time. All but one of the last six horses I bought were unbacked (and the backed one was very green). As young as 7 months, as old as 10 years.
I really enjoy the process, and recognize...
In 2012 I sold my former eventer, Chief (Premier de Kegan) as a foxhunter.
Last weekend, he won the Foxhunters class at Upperville.
Thanks to Hunter's Rest for inviting us to join the COTH...
I can vouch for yventer's level of care, and her facility.
Not quite sure WHERE you are looking, but in the 2015 rules - https://www.usef.org/documents/ruleBook/2015/13-EV.pdf - Rubber or leather snaffle jointed (a) or unjointed (b) is 14 a and b. - -It...
