    I've taught a lot of scribes - it is pretty common at the schooling shows to "break in" new scribes. So what I tell them is I always give comment, then score - if you can't get all the comment, make...

    I would guess because Manni paints other breeds in a broad brush as "not suited for dressage", and has stated in various posts that only WBs are dressage horses.. And now she wants a TB? Like ANY...

    With any custom saddle (not the brand, but the custom concept), a lot of it is about the individual fitter - and YOUR horse and YOUR body. I have friends who had total disasters with Schleese - even...

    I wouldn't use a hay net either - I actually had a foal rear up and get its foot caught in a tree limb (hooked through a fork) - they get up pretty high and they get into ANYTHING possible (or even...

    Depends on the trainer, depends on the rider and horse. For someone who is learning basics - I don't think it is worth the money to ride with an expensive big name clinician - and some of them don't...

    10 and 15 years ago, the show managers seemed to build extra time in for short oral comments- it was common courtesy to walk to C before exiting at the schooling shows. Now the schedules seem to be...

    Not a traditional WP horse, but a Morgan - still some of the same issues - lack of contact, lack of forward. I found leg yield was my friend - it taught him to open up his stride - we did a lot of...

    And?

    OP - the biggest disadvantage I would see in such a relocation - there are LOTS of trainers, many of them are very good. In a place like Modesto, there is a need - not many trainers. I...

    Agree! Earbuds (of any size) never stay in my ears. I use Skull Candy or another brand that hooks over my ears - try a few pairs on until you find one that works. Your helmet will help keep them...

    I also list myself as trainer no matter WHO is helping me, because I am always responsible for my horse. As for coach - if you are paying someone to help train/coach at the show (whether you are...

    Even at a rated show, you are OK. Knowing a judge isn't all that uncommon. I know quite a few of the judges. I always laugh and tell them to "pretend they don't know me". But - most well known...

    I think they post their prize list 30 days before the show opens. You can always contact Connie directly, her email address and phone number are right there on the home page.

    So, did my post surprise you? Since you quoted it?





    As someone who bred for many years, I can assure everyone here that US breeders have no chance in hell of marking a horse up 100%! ...

    Do you really think scores are "inflated" from 15 or 20 years ago? I don't. I think the quality of horses and riding at the upper levels is MUCH BETTER. I have been involved with dressage for 20...

    And just to further warn you - this isn't just Warmbloods, and it is all over the US too. I found Cadence (the stallion I use to own) for sale AND listed at stud on multiple ads in the US, Mexico,...

    Why make them do ANYTHING at all? Because they are domesticated. Because training is all about convincing the horse that there is more to life then just eating and sleeping. Most horses would...

    So many things going on in this thread! First of all - how do judges arrive at the score? Each movement is individually scored, and methodology for coming up with that score is to assess:

    It changed when they added canter lengthenings to First 1, and added some movements at RSV and P. It is not really possible to do First level in a short court anymore. I don't even know how you...

    It was about 30% of the "full event" price for the balcony seats - so I'm guessing about the same $ for the VIPs? I bought my balcony set the day the singles went on sale, and there were NO tickets...

    I wonder how many breeders here can say they had a horse at the World Cup - even in the "loser" round? Bayhawk, I can't believe you said that - so, could you point out which horses you've bred that...

    I disagree - I know several GOOD riders who are unable to find FEI level horses for lease. Now, finding an older FEI horse who is stepped down to 2nd/3rd level is possible, but not a horse for PSG -...

    Oops, I just assumed it was Glenda since it was SoCal. Either way, sucks for the show manager :-( Very stressful. And sucks for the riders.

    Pipken, I think you are right - the training requirements are so different (and so ongoing) with a dressage horse, so leasing one out can really set them "back" in their training. It is hard to even...

    Yes, I was just going to say the same thing. Could you imagine having to CANCEL a CDI - OMG, the costs... All those judges flown in from other countries. The staff, the TDs, the security...
