    LockeMeadows - Can you clarify your last post? VHSA confirmed that the pony was ineligible by email? (Wow, that is not like them.) Was that in answer to your question or from some other action,...

    Foursocks - I don't think you know what these phrases mean or when they are used in riding. Riding behind the motion does not jumping pre-caprelli (like all hunt prints show). Ludger is a master,...

    To the OP - the difference in styles are also known as riding behind the motion (the chair position) and riding with the motion. Both can be correct, but, the classic American style of equitation is...

    MVP (sorry for long delay), you misunderstand. This already IS the rule. I am not proposing it. USEF already has this power. So what additional rules do they really need? What actions that cause...

    I disagree with the call for more rules; that is the ubiquitous refrain of the irresponsible. Consider Mr. Long's explanation, which is perplexing if not untrue. The USEF does have the authority to...

    I want to thank Janet, Halt Near X, and the others who took the time to carefully read the new rules and offer helpful comments. At least a message has gone out that the amateur rules are...

    DMK – The definition of remuneration is not the problem. It could have held the solution, but it didn’t. The problem is in GR1306.4.a, which most people on this thread don’t seem to address. On...

    Halt Near X has nailed it. The rules seem fine in a first read. But when you have to apply them to a real case, one where your instinct leaves you unsure, that is where the rules are lacking...

    Conspiracy?? No. Incompetence in the use of the English language -- that is my charge.
    Your lack of reading comprehension is perhaps symptomatic: you know what you want the rules to say and so...

    I don't know. (I probably should) My recollection from years past is no comments/explanation are given, just proposed and/or final rules.

    New Amateur Rules 12/1/2012 -Huh?

    So the amateur rules have been "clarified" effective Dec 1, 2012. Too bad the USEF still cannot write in the English language. As written, everyone with a paying job that also rides is a...

    Ah, cool. (Long thread). They miss the point, however. What the remuneration was for is essential to determining whether it made the person a professional. Remuneration itself doesn't make one a...

    Meupatdoes - I think the lesson issue has caused you to get off track. Merely getting a free lesson does not make one a professional, even assuming the lesson has value. It depends on the rest of...

    Pop - your comments are way out of line. The OP expressed her disappointment over the quality of the prizes at a show. From that you accuse her of being a "horse show nazi" and that her child is a...

    Thanks to everyone. It sounds like Berk or Chuck are my best local folks. This is invaluable intel. I really appreciate it.
  17. Who to Measure for Vogel Boots in VA area?

    I am starting to look for someone to measure me for Vogel custom boots. When I got my current pair decades ago there was one local lady who was known to be awesome at measuring (whom I used and was...

    SuperShorty - I think some modern equitation riders do a fabulous job. My point is not that they all stink now and we were all great then. No, the situation is worse than that. People (trainers,...

    The differences are difficult to define anymore because the equitation judging has become so bad. While we can point to Hunter Seat Equitation as authoritative in defining the art and science of...

    Why ask this? Do we only have to follow rules that make sense or that have clear justification? Are we free to break rules that we deem wrong or unimportant? And if you believe one can break rules...
