    USEF should sponsor a contest for a course design for next year.

    I broke my ulna badly last July. Long story but if your wrist is involved it can be a totally different ball game. I had a bad surgeon and a gap was left between the ulna and the wrist - which...

    I would also want to work at a company that regularly sets up shop at the bigger shows in your region. IMHO that is huge - having a rep at a tent with tons of saddles at a show where you can try them...

    There seems to be a lot of turnover in these jobs. I would try to find out why.

    I concur with the posting above. Your family can take trips around the world for what it costs to show on the A circuit. The cost is staggering and it will never go down, only up. This is one of the...

    I got an email today offering me tickets. I was floored by the prices. They are clearly catering to the WEF crowd. Too rich for me.

    Good to know. I was going to buy something online, guess I am not now.

    Board - $500-2000 a month depending on where you live
    Extra or special feed and supplements if needed (will vary horse to horse but let's just say $50 a month)
    Farrier $150-250 every 4 to 6 weeks...

    I think you'd be surprised at how many big name barns use mag to show. We won't know for sure until USEF finds a way to test it, but IMHO it's used quite regularly.

    Also depends where you live. A horse like that won't be competitive in the A shows where I live. Would have to be a local horse. $15K range IMHO.

    The ironic thing is that I took a 9-month hiatus from riding recently due to an injury and could not wait to get back. Now that I am back I am miserable. Who knew?

    Thanks for all of the kind advice. I do think I need to take a very long break from it all. I take care of the horses myself (which I love) but I've always loved showing and looked forward to it a...

  16. How Do You Know When It's Time to Call it Quits?

    How do you know? I probably had the very worst weekend showing in my 20+ years of riding. It was awful. Could not ride my horse. Trainer was less than helpful. It was terrible. All I wanted to do...

    I think it really depends on the horse. Adequan and Legend do nothing for one of my horses but he responds well to Pentosan. Adequan works well for a mare I have but Pentosan seems to do nothing for...

    Resperine gave my mare a serious round of colitis. I would not use the stuff. I will never use it again on anything I own.

    Just make sure you plan ample time for driving. Traffic is terrible. Can easily take 1-2 hours to make a trip that should take 15-30 minutes. Just plan well or you won't have time to look at...

    Breeding is a real crap shoot. I bred my wonderful AA show WB mare to a known hunter stallion and got a wonderful mare with a ligament issue (now she's a pasture ornament). It was an expensive...
