    My bolding. Are you sure you have GGT? There is one place I know about that I heard adds oil to their footing, and that footing comes from ArenaWorks, Inc. It's not GGT afaik.

    You may be referring to the ones from Anstadt-Das. Those were nice, except for when you needed to go potty. I think what happened was the owner of that company ran into various problems and went...

    I'm trying to understand this. Rancho, I don't understand why the footing is 'rock hard' in the morning after it is watered and rolled. I do understand that when it is dry, the fabric separates and...

    Yes, but the rider needs to know how to straighten the horse. The horse has to be sound, because sometimes the crookedness stems from unsoundness. Even if the horse is sound, it takes a while of...

    I agree with the horse needs to be able to gallop and be adjustable to be a good jumper. I do not agree that it is always the rider's fault. Some horses just don't have the spark or the canter. ...

    I did hunters and low eventing for about 20 years. The switch to dressage was not on purpose but just happened. Unlike you, I loved jumping and was never attracted to dressage. I still don't like...

    I understand that fiber particles will float to the top when dry. What I don't understand is why when dry it would become hard. Isn't the recommended sand used with GGT a round beach-type sand that...

    I suppose any negative behavior seen in a horse has some tension factor. But the reason it is faulted in dressage is because it indicates the horse is not 'accepting the bit' which is a criteria in...

    My opinion is that the tongue faults start from a horse being uncomfortable with the bit and/or in some discomfort or pain elsewhere. It could be minor discomfort, but they apparently find some...

    Similar to my program. I walk 15 minutes and I time it and I cool down at the walk another 10-15. So there is 30 minutes gone right there. Do the people here that ride only a total of 30 minutes...

    I wouldn't have thought 6 weeks off for a fit horse would result in that significant of a drop in muscle and fitness. I'm going by the information Dr. Clayton provides. Did he have no work at all...

    Does the Gold work well for you? I have stayed away from Glucosomine ever since it was said there was a link between it and laminitis with IR horses.

    I have the angular sand with felt additive and I hate it!! However, it will stabilize the sand.

    I did not add the fiber for stabilization though; I had hoped the fiber would help with compaction....

    I think there ought to be a rule that a judge can only judge 'x' number of shows within a certain radius in a season. It will never happen though, most likely because most riders don't seem to care....
