    I'm gonna guess they are german silver HS spurs. I always scoffed at expensive spurs--until I tried my coach's and what a difference. I use the HS smooth rowel ones (small rowel, barely goes past the...

    I think it's going to be on a 3 year rotation, east and then west. They are scouting for a "west" location now for 2016-18.

    GP trained and Ammy safe? I would expect it to be at least 12+ if not 15+, and definitely more than $40K unless it had a major issue.

    My coach has a GP trained horse (shown through I2) who is not...

    Brown and black together is a great look. You could add a brown velvet collar, swap out the buttons, etc. and really update a coat. My brown coat was a longer frock style (think Pikeur Diana) and I...

    FWIW, I ride 4th level/PSG and rarely sit the trot for mediums at home.

    It's not that I can't--I sure as heck can--and it's not a "struggle" (in either definition). In fact, I find sitting the...
