    We pulled our boys from the Champagne Run XC because of hard ground, that is hard to do. Go to a HT and just do a combined test. My guy has pads in his front feet and frankly we've had bad...

    That's a beautiful XC course and you handled things great. Looked like a fairly beefy Training course.

    A trainer once told me to think of "rowing the boat" as an analogy to keep a softer, more following contact to the fences. I've also been amazed at how looking up and ahead of the fence keeps me...

    Great video, thanks for sharing. We were watching at the water, waiting for our friend Janet who also rocked thru there, and saw you come through. Nice save at the downbank!

    Yes, if I understand it right, for BN and N, a witnessed fall with the rider landing on their feet is OK. Or, a fall not related to a fence is OK to remount and continue at any level. If you can...

    I would hate to see event horses get even more expensive than they are now. I love the fact that we can compete with horses that don't cost an arm and a leg.

    I sold mine this past winter, and still feel guilty for selling a horse that took such good care of me. It was a tough thing to do, my only consolation is that he went to a good home.

    I think for the adult amateurs who have jobs, that thought, the "why do we do this" thought pops up a lot. A good XC run makes the long drives, early mornings, disappointing dressage, endless...

    Contour Roam 2. Reliable, works great. I have mine mounted on a velcro disc that sticks to the helmet. I sanded down the pebbly surface of the helmet and cleaned it with alcohol to ensure it would...

    We have two geldings like that, and since they are the only two horses on the property, well, you can imagine. At our last show their stalls faced the dressage arenas about 100 yards or so away. ...

    Great effort Dom, that you and Jimmie are doing, keep up the good work. I actually think the riders look better in helmets. Besides, I prefer to look at the 4 legged star of the show anyway. Hope...
