    Yes. In May, my horse went to her first AA since I've owned her. Let me tell you, I'm not so sure it was worth it. I had to transfer my horse's ownership with USEF, pay for her registration, USEF,...

    Sounds like you have a great sense of humor and didn't take it too seriously.

    Ive done plenty of ridiculous things...and there is often photographic evidence. :) The one time I ever went off...

    Hmm, I wouldnt say the third place and fist place are all that similar in faults...and to say that their heads are similar is a huge stretch to me. The gray's head isn't the most refined I've seen,...

    This. She was out of work for a reason...and it's usually NOT the one that you are being told by the seller. "The horse has been out of work because she's been lame" usually doesn't go over well...

    Just wanted to point out that not leaving hoof prints doesn't necessarily = harder. They don't leave hoof prints, but you also can't hear the horses hit the ground like you can in most surfaces. ...

    I bought my current horse from VA where she was getting 12/ hours out per day. She honestly hasn't been interested in staying out that long here. She started at 4 hours a day but circumstances have...

    you have a hard time finding jumper classes anywhere but rated shows? Wow. I can't find hunter classes that fill anywhere but rated. There are tons of opportunities for jumpers here.

    Agreed. My mare has pieces of this, but not the whole package*. If I could just convince her to be the whole package, life would be great...and I never would've been able to afford her. :D she...

    Rated? I'm hoping for 2-3 this year. I've got 1 done. :D We just had a new facility open near me so this is the first time that I can actually even consider showing rated. There isn't really...

    Only thing I'd think about is if charging for driving makes you a Commercial driver with special licensing/permitting needs.

    I have very thick hair and have had it VERY long at times. At the moment I don't like it very long as hair that long kind of grosses me out. Not sure what changed. :D I do currently get it...

    This. the article and video are ridiculous and actually turn me off to the cause..one that I fully support, BTW.

    I wouldn't be surprised or upset that a dark brown sabino is being mis-identified, nor would I think anyone was all that far of the mark calling it an Appy, depending on the looks. 'Course, the...

    This is more the type of Appy that I'm familiar with. My first non-lesson horse was an Appy mare was actually quite refined. She had more in common with TBs that she did with stock horses. She...

    Agree that neither are all that good with their fronts ends. Not dangerous, but just bleh. Chestnut is better with his back while the bay is pretty flat to almost inverted on some jumps. I wonder...

    I have a giant head, too! OMG finding a helmet in a store to try on/buy is ridiculous. I've driven 3 hours to a bigger tack store to still only have 2 in the right size to try on. I just stick with...

    I kind of lump the 2'6" in with the 2'. :) (and for clarity...2'6" is about what I ride right now on a good day. Some days it's poles on the ground.)




    Nope. Not at all what I was...

    That's not my experience. :) Our local shows have less than 100 horses (much less usually) and maybe two rings. There are no tents, decorations are minimal. (there was one show where the cross...

    Local shows do not measure up in most ways to A shows. and you have to be in an area that offers B and C shows. Those are VERY hard to find where I'm from.

    The only thing I will say in the 2' classes defense is that it gives you the head start on getting your young horse exposed and on its way to becoming the sacked out show veteran that is needs to be...

    Sorry...I probably singled you out a bit unfairly. Apologies. I have so many people, ones that should know better, tell me that the $$$ helmets are more protective that I get a little ramped up...
