    Congratulations! Very cool milestone. You'll have to report back with a full recap of what it was like running in your first *star*.

    I've had on my bucket list to run a 1* BEFORE my 50th...

    Just saw the ad. Which one is being advertised as the stallion?

    (sorry, couldn't resist)

    That is just about the cutest thing I've ever seen. Finally a use for those ridiculous Vermont Teddy Bears that doesn't involve a scantily clad middle aged woman batting her bedroom eyes at the...
  8. 1 week till Southern Pines! Who's coming and who wants Margaritas?

    Despite this week's weather being something out of bad sci-fi movie (I didn't even know that "freezing fog" was an option) the weekend looks really promising.

    I'm thinking a Saturday afternoon...

    The standard thread is 3/8th, regardless of what type of stud is attached to it. Definitely have your farrier double check his drill bit, you shouldn't be losing half of your studs or your stud...

    I just saw this, congrats JER! The weather here is ridiculous right now, I don't blame you for being a little nervous.

    Of course, if the newborn just needs someone to cuddle with I'm not far down...

    Seriously. I would rather gouge my spleen out with a rusty spork than pull a bell boot on.

    This is great advice.

    I would add that if you are asked a question that you don't know the answer to it's perfectly fine to say you don't know the answer, something like "I'm not familiar with...

    This is excellent advice.

    Volunteer as much as you can. If you have a friend that events offer to be their groom. You will gain a much broader knowledge base than you ever could getting a static shopping list from us.

    I found the ad with just a smidge of sleuthing, very well done. Jingles that this horse and rider end up with perfect matches.

    You are a good friend to this horse and rider :)

    IIRC, the initiation of the live broadcast added some time to the top ten show jumpers. I distinctly recall seeing horses in the chute and having to wait for the commercial break to be over.

    But,...

    Sorry, it always stinks when a good resource relocates (I guess it's good news for the people on the receiving end). I will keep her name in mind if anyone ever asks me about trainer in that area :)...

    Congrats! Looks like you're off to a great start :)

    And it sounds like you have a good plan for strengthening your position, that will help you develop a more independent hand. Good job!

    Well cool, glad you got some good leads. Good luck with your new youngster! Buying one is the easy part :)

    For the record, I've never heard of the trainer mentioned. Typical case of situational...
