    Congrats on the offer! I may have missed it - but did you ever provide them with a salary history, or your expected salary?

    Thanks for the info. We are looking at some of the summer dressage shows, and just trying to figure out if it is do-able without having to drive all the way to Hendersonville for a decent place to...

    A friend had a quality issue with the Schockemoehle snaffle bridle - the flash attachment had been *glued* onto the cavesson, and it fell off not long after she bought it.

    It wasn't the cost of *building* roads and tracks and steeplechase, it was the availability of enough land. IOC wants Olympic events held as close as possible to the designated Olympic city, to make...

    And I suppose you know more about "how horses' breeding is generally acknowledged in Europe", than an official from a VERY large and successful Verband? ;)

    Chiming in to say that steeplechase horses do in fact drag their legs through the brush. And event horses that did the long format did the same. A former riding instructor was long listed for the...

    Oh, yeah! Great movie, and Kilmer was fantastic in that role.

    Casablanca was one long memorable scene. There wasn't a wasted moment in it.

    Ah, sorry. I misread it - I thought the offer was to drop the price by $10K. I obviously haven't had enough coffee.:lol:

    So in that case, yes, the offer is preposterous.

    I found it interesting to see that Vitalis was doing I-1 at age 7 (and with scores of 70.0%). He went from the 6 y/o FEI YH test in 2013, to I-1 in 2014. That is an indicator of super talent, and a...

    Even though he was born in June, he 'officially' became a 3 y/o on Jan. 1 2015. He dominated the 2014 Hanoverian stallion licensing and sold at the auction for 620,000E. Interest in him from the...

    It's not in Germany, it's in Denmark. The pic appears to be from his Danish performance test, so he was about 3 months shy of his 3rd (biological) birthday. He was unfortunately a late foal as far as...

    Do we know for a fact this stallion was getting steroids? It is my understanding they were tested for steroids at the licensings and SPTs.

    If AH put the horse on steroids after his licensing, than...

    KWPN stallion Vitalis

    Does anyone know what is going on with Vitalis these days? I don't think he has shown since last summer. Is he breeding? And if so, where is he standing?
