    Something to ponder...

    What if a judge witnesses one horse receiving PP before a class that then ends up in a tie with another horse (go with me here). Should the judge pin the other horse above...

    I don't think you read my post very clearly. Perhaps read it again for comprehension?

    If there isn't an issue with eq horse welfare, why did Karen Healy et al form a task force? Surely they have...

    What's really sad is that the article's message is being bogged down by those who clearly have an axe to grind and want to push a personal agenda.

    When I first read the article, it struck me as...

    Mare Leans On Walls - Deterrent?

    I have a mare that had two foals early in life, the last a couple of years before she joined my barn. She's in work and our barn only has very "gelding" geldings and one other mare, no stallions.

    It was meant to be a more a general statement tied back to the USEF / FEI business courses reference above. To my mention of trainers as small business owners, the definition is generally under $50...

    Very true, but that's why I don't think the issue is moral-based. The problem isn't KNOWING right from wrong. The issue, to me, is people getting in way over their heads and trying to figure out a...

    With some exceptions, the majority of horse people I've met in my lifetime haven't been the best businessmen/women. In fact, a good percentage have skewed from mediocre to downright failures at...

    It was an incredible ceremony filled with respect and admiration! About 10 veteran Marines who served with Reckless attended the ceremony and it was clear that she meant a great deal to them all. ...

    Invisible bike helmets are very cool and on the market now. The technology seems to be similar to riding's inflatable vests. I can only imagine what it would be like to avoid helmet head / headache...

    Agreed, but how many threads on drugs and trainers who have cheated and back room pharmaceuticals have we had over the years? And we're only a percentage of the people who discuss this topic.

    The recent drug abuse threads made me wonder if a public reward for clean barns could be an welcome addition to our show world? I was thinking of something along the lines of the "Green" or LEED...
