    I would order from a different company, personally. Nothing against Calevo, either... that would just be too much money for me to spend hoping that A) I measured correctly - including factoring in...

    I sent a letter - in my own rather rusty German - to my horse's breeder last year. I got back a really lovely note in return and have had a nice time updating him since then.

    He also helped me...

    Agree ! Particularly the statement about 2nd being where the "cheating" starts to show through.

    To this I would add... this is NOT just a rider issue. I think it can be very hard to find a...

    IF the class is held using FEI rules, this FEI site has quite a lot of good info, including:

    I rarely if ever completely disconnect at work. I find that checking in briefly AM and PM allows me to deal with any fires that may have arisen, assure myself that everything else is OK... and then...

    Haha MistyBlue, I hear you about the man cave! We have one in our current house and it is a godsend!!

    Probably most here would think we have too much house. It's 5 BR/4/2, a little over 4200 sq...

    I know it is probably not what you want to hear, OP, but your instructor's fears are likely justified. You can post here for references and other COTHers might have some feedback for you, but...

    I thought the article was great, actually, and didn't get the sense there was anything untoward in the author's view of their horse(s)?

    I think boarding has always been a difficult business, but - as illustrated very well by mvp above - there is a very challenging dynamic that includes rising costs for land and infrastructure as well...

    I would never spend a penny with La Mundial given the number of people who've had such terrible issues. Just the number on this thread is staggering and you have to believe that that is a very small...
