    Good thoughts, and I'll add that another cause for this behavior is landing your butt in the saddle to early on landing ... Sometimes in an effort to stay up off the neck on landing, riders will come...

    It's great that you got some help with her! It's always easier for someone to help who is actually watching you ride and how the horse goes. Hopefully she will keep getting better and better!

    True .. But it's not just the dressage that hasn't kept up. Lately, we haven't even been getting around XC and our teams haven't been completing ... So clearly we need to do more than just improve...

    I agree, Duckz ... although I can understand the reasoning for the not allowing "championship" logos, to me it just shouldn't be that big of a deal, and any judge worth his or her salt is not going...

    Yes, this only applies to the CANTER owned "adoption" horses. The horses listed through trainers are still regular sales unless the seller specifically adds additional terms on their own.

    What would the reasoning be for allowing breed logos and the like but not personal monograms? This seems a little excessively strict, although I'm used to the much more lax rules about turnout over...

    The only reason they are "worth" $130 is because the company that makes them said so.

    Hopefully no one is spurring their horse so hard that the strength of the metal vs its weight becomes an...

    Having a trainer work with you while you are riding her will be invaluable. It sounds like while she is willing to give to the bit at times, she hasn't yet learned to accept contact and is trying to...

    What Reed said.

    Eventing has somehow managed to grow in popularity over years despite not being "TV friendly". Why should we do away with the sport that has drawn all those people in, in order to...

    Why are so many people willing to gut the sport of eventing just to keep it in the Olympics?

    I don't get it.
