  1. Another thing to remember - the vet doesn't...

    Another thing to remember - the vet doesn't eliminate the horse. They are really there to give their opinion, but the ground jury makes the ultimate decision.

    The jogs I've been to (observing,...

    Agree with Snickle - I think it is much more physical - the mental goes along with it of course. But most riders are desk jockeys, as cnm says - they have to WORK to pay for the horses. And after...

    Harry Boldt's Book - Das DressurPferd - it has been re-released in English, and it is fabulous! The photography is stunning! And it is quite readable.

    I also love Kyra's books - they are very...

    Since they've been mentioned in this thread - although they make GREAT sport horse crosses, Irish Draughts and Friesians are not actually "Draft" horses.

    As for draft crosses - they are very...

    Second the suggestion for Clair - several years ago, I talked to her and got some great tips.

    OMG, the joys of rehab - totally agree with you, no turnout in this kind of situation! Follow the vets orders. My mare went through rehab, and I found that a covered pipe pen helped with sanity -...

    Totally agree - if every rider asked the ring steward to do just one thing - the ring steward would be totally overwhelmed! Better to bring a bottle of flyspray, and hop off as you finish your warm...

    I have a BOT sheet - can't say I am a believer. I suspect it just has more with warming up the muscles. But that is based on a single horse's reaction - I have friends who swear by them (which is...

    Agree that the collectives should overall "reflect" the body of the test - but what where your other collectives? If you got a higher score in submission and rider score, then lower in impulsion,...

    Hate the SMBs - they are NOT at all breathable.

    If you were OK with fleece, People On Horses makes the best boots ever - real sheepskin (not as bulky as DSBs or Dover brand boots), and they make...

    Thank you for pointing this out - I hear "tension" tossed around all the time - and I think people forget that positive tension is absolutely necessary to get the work done! Valegro is relaxed...

    First of all, no vet should perform a partial gelding on a chryptorchid! Mainly because people would think it is a "regular gelding", and it is NOT.

    Then - yes, this needs to be resolved -...

    Ohhhh, I'm going through a similar issue with a 3 year old. And the roach back is not going away. He's had a few chiro adjustments now. I am afraid it is a chronic issue - figured maybe he could...

    I do 6 cc twice monthly. The first month, I did loading dose (as recommended by vet) once weekly for 3 weeks. I do notice around the last couple of days before the next dose, I can feel a...

    Yes, for most of the top horses, this is really true. They are not schoolmasters, they are elite athletes. There may be a few that "anyone" can ride, but in more cases, these horses are for top...

    I just spent a couple of days riding with Alfredo - every time I ride with him, something gets BETTER! He is outspoken and direct with the riders, and an advocate for the horse. For those who do...

    I wear my regular show shirt - I have a fondness for the Irrideon zip neck shirts - they are lightweight and inexpensive (I find them for about $30). I don't change my shirt, but a polo is perfectly...

    Customer service is so dependent on your individual rep - so it is hard to comment. Some reps are better then others. If you want a really useful review asked people who have bought through YOUR...

    It is like shopping at Marshalls - you have to wade through a lot of stuff to find that bargain! The biggest tip - avoid the eBay shops, the vendors who always have hundreds of things listed, and...

    Happy retirement Toto - you earned it! Such a wonderful horse who has nothing left to prove in the performance world, he's done it all! I still get goosebumps watching Gal ride him - that piaffe,...

    A few points - first of all, you all do realize the judges do NOT JUDGE THE WARM UP! Everyone wants them to "follow the directives", but please realize judges ONLY judge what they see in the test. ...

    Thank goodness! He does not have anything to prove in the competition ring, he's done it all!

    Regarding shoe string budgets - do watch eBay. I've found some great deals there. If you are willing to buy used (not everyone is), you can really get killer deals. And of course, shop your local...

    No threshold, it is apparently just random luck of the draw (according to Divoza), but I suspect it has more to do with using FedEx versus Postal Service. It was a relatively large purchase, but I...

    I don't think of the Luganas as a curvey fit - I am NOT curvy and they fit me quite well. I find them very true to size - similar to Cavallo, Ariat, etc. They are great breeches because they aren't...
