    Skimmed through the responses, so apologies if this is a repeat.

    That's what underpants are for. :-)

    Just did a clinic with an R judge last weekend and he said you'd be surprised what details the judges notice. He's old school and has great distaste for...

    I don't typically wear anything to the barn that needs to last because I'll quickly ruin it with horse snot, Thrush Buster, iodine, mud, horse poop, blood, sweat, and tears.

    Meh, I'm clearly in the minority here, but I got used to being in a communal barn. Since the blankets were so expensive, I would probably have a nice (in person) conversation with the BM along the...

    With carrot face, the head is usually low and sometimes the front lip goes into a boxy shape.

    Whoa! Sandcastle's post prompted me to revisit HU125 and, sure enough, there are some big changes of which I was not aware. Maybe I've been under a rock (haven't shown in a year), but I had no idea...

    Try thinking about the one-two, one-two tempo you need. Then think of a song that matches that tempo.
