    I assume she wants to compete in the All Breeds. But you can certainly compete a horse that someone else owns (though there are additional fees if owner is not a member of all the associations). It...

    I'll join in as I often have this conversation with myself.

    I board at a multi-discipline facility, mostly western, and it can be hard. I have my long time BNT come about 6 times a month, so the...

    I'm sure Omaha is a lovely place, but I can't imagine my husband would happily tag along as he does for trips to Vegas, San Diego or New York. It's just not the same sort of destination.

    I really...

    Totally unacceptable to draw blood.

    I was there and the ride was lovely. In both tests I thought the horse and rider were a very good pair - the ride looked much less forced than others.

    Makes...

    Amazing rides today. I am in awe of those riders.

    IMHO Edward was overstored. He is an amazing rider, but the horse was just so tense the whole time. But perhaps that is just my personal taste....

    Undercover was very tense yesterday in the warm-up, but what do I know lol. I thought they were all amazing. Incredible riding, beautiful horses.

    And in my effort to support Silverbridge, I...

    I always insure them. The premiums are relatively small and it is huge peace of mind for me.

    It is a bit confusing - I believe that for All Breeds FS is dependent on whether the breed association recognizes it. I am currently showing an AQHA and they do not recognize freestyles.

    For USDF...

    I asked my trainer about this (she's a big S judge) and she said the same as has been noted by a few folks above - fine to change, but make sure it is helping the horse and makes sense given the...

    I think it is totally reasonable to buy a horse a level or two ahead of where you are riding. In fact I wish I had the budget to do it - much less frustrating if at least one of you know what you are...

    I think the OP was joking about the 10 mover. Is there even such a thing? Have no idea what the top horses get for gait scores, but I know the BNTs that I've seen on very, very fancy six figure type...

    You have to prioritize a bit. Knowing yourself well is a good place to start and it seems like you do not want a project.

    My fancy, bred for the job warmblood mare broke about 4 years back. So I...

    Completely depends on the venue. Sometimes unloading all the gear and lugging it across the facility is more hassle than it's worth. I do lots of haul out lessons, etc, so it's not an issue for me...

    I think the issue is that the concept of a sheepskin lined girth is great, but maintaining it is a problem.

    Most people use a sheepskin sleeve so that you can throw it in the wash once a week.

    I can't believe we have a 5 page thread on ponytails!

    I have shoulder length, thin, straight hair. Pretty much never looks great with a helmet. I just wear a pony tail, put a hair net over it and...

    I really appreciate CDP posting the live feed. And I appreciate Axel's commentary. Wish people would not over analyze every word out of his mouth?

    Personally, I just want to give a big fat...

    There is a big difference between a schooling show and a *CDS show - scores earned at a *CDS are qualifying scores for CDS championships. They have licensed judges, etc.

    A schooling show is pretty...

    A few thoughts on this thread.

    - Clinicians click with different people. Some riders work well with given approach, some will not.

    - I do not understand why someone would post that video,...

    js - there are no AQHA classes at USDF/USEF shows.

    If you are competing on an AQHA at a USDF/USEF dressage show, your scores count for USDF awards (including all breeds) but they do not count for...

    I think that generally speaking judges and clinicians have a tough job: riders have been working away and think they...

    I am trying to imagine Axel Steiner judging a schooling show - can't imagine but I suppose it is possible.

    I saw him give a clinic a few weeks ago and I thought he was really good. But I also...

    All good points Mystic Oaks. I'm working away on this now and our simple changes are hit or miss (at best) with all of the issues that you describe. Either I get a trot step or it's abrupt. ...
