    My first thought was Valegro, undercover, Verdades. Laura will need to put in a very solid ride, but I think they can earn a top spot.

    Valegro, even if he made many mistakes, I suspect he would...

    I immediately check the scores in the boxes to the scores on the printout. If they are using a computer program and the test is correct and the numbers in the boxes are correct, then the score will...

    Does anyone know what the reasoning behind changing the name from combined training to eventing was about 15 years ago? Was it to give it a more unique name?

    A horse in Germany tested positive for Glanders (without clinical signs). They couldn't find any in the organs on necropsy where it should have been found in a typical case.

    It caused no change to...

    They still are quarantined until the required tests come back from Iowa. They made a special quarantine tent for the World Cup horses. They did a similar type system for WEG kentucky. Even those high...

    Not really. Leases outside of the h/j world are more often helping out fellow rider or a mutual "It would help me not to pay board for a while and in return you may ride and show the horse." A horse...
  8. Withdrawal from Rolex due to import quarantine issue.

    Just reading the Rolex withdrawals update that a German rider has withdrawn due to his groom not being allowed access (limited or none, it doesn't say) to the horse during the 2-3 days of quarantine....

    It doesn't test for ulcers. It determines if there is any blood in the small sample of manure.

    Please, please, please don't just hope your vet comes out in the next week. This is an emergency and a vet is needed immediately. It may mean the difference between recovery and death for your horse....

    My favorite thing for shedding is the $30 hand held shop vac's from lowes or home depot. They pull the hair right off with no mess and the coat is left super clean. Its also a great way to get a show...

    Brookledge is by far the best hauler and being based out of Lexington will help your rates. They are never the cheap bid though.

    That would make me look closer at the RH to start and do a neuro exam. Just because they don't seem lame at a trot, doesn't mean they can't be lame. If it's a young horse who has always been this...

    You have the time to look for the right horse and the right deal. It's not the same as going for two days as an American on a shopping trip (and I'm not one of the ones opposed to doing that either)....

    I suspect is it because the L program is not actually a judges program (even though it is a prerequisite for later). I would guess it is more about controlling the number of people in the program and...

    I could not find a single A-C session between now and the end of this year :( I was aware of the new requirement. They must have updated it because now it's 2 65%+ at second plus one score of 62% or...

    L Program: Dates question

    I'm seeing lots of sessions D1 and D2 listed on the USDF website. Does this mean A, B, and C are offered one year and D1 and D2 the following year? Or am I just missing all of the A-C sessions?

    You a can switch mid movement no problem. This is particularly useful with the lengthening as starting is sitting can help the rider control the tempo and then go to rising to help the horse keep the...

    Sadly, while not a common complication, hernias certainly do occur. The good news is edema is much more common. The vet can tell the difference (and ultrasound can confirm as well). If you can push...

    When I'm short on time to soak or it gets too hot to leave them soaking all day, I put them in an empty feed bag. I fold the bag over, so I don't lose any and drive back and forth over it with the...

    2-3x a day for life threatening or those that may progress to needing significant or urgent surgical intervention. This horse will hopefully stabilize in the first 24-48 hours and not need so many...

    I don't think show managers understand that they lose entries when when they wait. They think dates and location are the only thing that's important.
