That is the problem with not having a contract (or even going over all the expectations verbally ahead of time).
You ASSUMED that "30 days notice" was implied.
She ASSUMED that, since it had...
And until the early 70s, Prelim was the lowest level, except for Pony Club Rallies.
I started riding lessons at 6. Did my first Pony Club rally at 12, and my first HT (at Training) at 17. So 6...
Tre Awain Connemaras have been around since the 50s. They have a very good reputation, and have produced a lot of good ponies.
But what their strengths are depend on the particular bloodlines-...
If you have homeowners insurance, that may, in theory, cover you for liability in general. But check with your agent.
You could also look at an umbrella policy for extra liability protection.
I think a regular (non airbag) vest will give you more protection, in more kinds of accidents, than an airbag (for less cost).
For instance, when the horse slips and falls in the ring, there is a...
My own observations.
I have a grand-daughter of Grange Finn Sparrow and she is a fabulous jumper. But she is not an easy ride, and she hates dressage.
I have seen quite a few Grange Finn...
I would consider that a variant of a choker, just as a pre-tied stock is a variant of a stock.
It has always (well since they introduced "Tests") been an option.
The change seems to be setting up a leaderboard for it.
At most shows I know about, MOST of the volunteers have some connection to the competitors, and often ARE competitors.
Are we reading the same article?
Bedding depth was NOT part of the study.
Yes, but did the vet know, in May, that the horse was going to compete in August?
There is obviously more to this story than what is in the official statement
None the less, the payer's bank should be able to figure out where the check was deposited.
The rule says
I interpret that to mean that (for D and SJ)
A) Jacket, shirt and tie/stock/choker
B)"Long or short sleeved shirt with collar and without neckwear, of a...
I do not think so.
If you look at the suspension list, there are quite a lot that start in September, October and November
"Leverage" requires a fulcrum (typically the mouthpiece) and a lever (the "arm" of the bit).
In a (straight) Pelham WITHOUT a curb chain, when you pull on the rein you exert pressure on the poll (...
I'll be there.
A couple of key points.
In order to be effective you need 14-16 hours of CONTINUOUS light.
If it is already after "1/2 our before sunset" when you bring the in, the evening lights will have no...
I have not been to Stone Gate, but Gillian has. She said that jumps were not "fancy" but the courses were good and the management was friendly.
I am a big fan of the TWA shows at Hazelwild...
Yes, it can already be offered.
I do not think any event has already done it, but I know there is an event planning to offer it in Spring 2016.
This option is aimed squarely at the latter (green rider). While more experienced riders are not necessarily prevented from entering (but could be), the intended demographic is green RIDERS.
No, there is ABSOLUTELY no requirement to offer it.
Yes, it is JUST an option (one of MANY options) available to orgaizers who want to add a "Test". to the mix.
No. This is not true. The insurance covers the entire event, whether or not the rules are enforced.
We specifically checked with our insurance company to be sure.
Now, if someone WERE to...
I did not know them personally, but I knew their son, who was in Pony Club with me.
What a tragedy.
No it isn't.
Last years proposal to make the cross country fences harderr was made by the Course Design Committee, and objected to, from the very beginning, by the Membership Committee.
Try the unrecognized HT at Loch Moy in MD.
For the umpteenth time

I am not sure what "bottom line" benefit you think the Membership Committee will get from this.
