    Mine was stiff for a while but she was used to having a job and did well on light, straightforward work from day one - I don't think putting her in a field would have been helpful (in fact, we had to...

    I ride my mare in a plastic bit, but my trainer rides her in a plain snaffle or even a slow twist. I like to think the plastic bit muffles my hands a little, as there is a lot more noise in my...

    I don't care about resale, but making up my TB from the track to packing me around the adult jumpers, with good professional help and showing, has been more expensive than it would be for me to buy...

    I don't know what that is, but I love the rhino wugs and think they're good for preventing rubs.

    I don't do it because it's better, I do it because I don't have time to wait around for a wet horse to dry in the winter. I figure clean and wet > dry and dirty. But I've never tried it on a really...

    I've done it, it was fine, I think it might dull the blades faster but who knows.

    I find this astonishing. Aren't the incentives all screwed up that way? If the agent decides to pass on an offer at or above *your* price to try for something higher to increase their "commission,"...

    For what it's worth mine I towel-dry mine so she's more damp than wet, and by the time I get to the end it's pretty dry. I use a lot of show sheen and didn't have trouble with the hair clumping up,...

    I've had success clipping mine while she's still wet from the bath. I just towel and then showsheen, and keep kool-lubing and oiling the blades. I'm sure I dull the blades faster, but I don't worry...

    I never figured out where to buy the super wide nylon twill tape stuff that they use to trim blankets, so please let me know if you find some!

    This has NEVER happened to me, in all of my times at A shows with Thoroughbreds (which is a lot. Dozens upon dozens). I've never seen it happen to anyone. In fact, trainers especially seem to have a...

    You might reconsider this mind set. I know that some horses and maybe even riders are more suited to one or the other, and that they get used to going in one style or another, but horses are horses...

    In fairness, they didn't change Cassanova's name, and his breeding is listed. You can look up his young horse auction records. http://issuu.com/dutchsporthorsesales/docs/dshs_a5_boekje_2012_web

    So there are at least two horses on this thread whose records start this year, presumably because they were imported and/or their names were changed, showed exactly 4 times at 3'6"+, and moved back...

    It was my first time at Saugerties too, and I didn't find the golf carts to be so terrible. I did a lot of walking and minimal carting. Spectators may not appreciate how far it is to the barns, and...

    But you're conflating amateurism with skill. Not the same. And horses can be a business for amateurs, it just has to be self-financed or in the family. People often WANT amateurism to have something...

    I guess under my proposal, to show in money classes and retain amateur status, you'd have to forgo the money. Amateur classes would be cheaper because shows wouldn't need to cover prize money.

    The amateur rule is silly.

    I would like to see it changed to prize money = pro. If you ride in a show for money, you're a pro.

    That would probably do away with the higher amateur divisions,...
