    I'm pretty sure one would be able to find a hunter trainer who doesn't drug, either. I've found several. They even manage to compete successfully. Most of them just work very hard to find horses who...

    I definitely agree on a lot of what was said above - gloves, hairnets, etc. Maybe toss a few breakaway crownpieces and I know I never seem to have safety pins. I also would love it if there were a...

    Supershorty, come east. I'd love to see you get on my ponies and you know, we have cookies.

    The rules are the rules... and they are blessedly unspecific. As long as you're tidy and not breaking them, I can't see an issue at bigger shows. If it says "choker or tie," take your pick. I like...

    Um, no.

    I concentrate on what I am doing with my own horse. That's where my goals start and end, unless I am riding a different horse. Then I concentrate on riding that horse. And riding a good...

    I agree. Basically, all I see is the OP complaining about something she doesn't know anything about.

    OP, I am also an amateur with a farm, a family, and a job. I've managed to pull off being a...

    Erm, well I know because I have my horses at home and ship to our trainer. I also trust her ethics enough that when he was boarded there, he wasn't given anything he wasn't supposed to get.

    I was kind of thinking the same thing. It's a horse show. 99% of the time, everyone there can be considered privileged. I'm really not quite sure what that poster was going for on this particular...

    You know what, maybe you should go just jump your horse around 3' fences at home. Any sport with competition has cheaters. That means just about ALL OF THEM. So, no more sports and no more competing....

    I'm gathering since you've snapped to an immediate "all wrong" that you're not going to bother discussing your concerns with your trainer.

    Further, if you truly "consider personal integrity to be...

    "Irrefutable proof?"

    It sounds like what you actually have is a question that hasn't been answered yet and a lot of ridiculous hyperbole. No, the entire sport doesn't drug.

    I was grooming for a friend at HITS about a week ago and had this thread in mind, as I stood in line at the wash stall and noted that NUMEROUS riders were taking care of their own horses.

    Exactly what lrp says. This is absolutely lunacy on the part of the USEF, and overreach.

    Am I going to get fined now for saying that?

    If I make it to the Olympics, I'm braiding in pink sparkles. Damn it, at that point I've earned my right to have any color I want.

    If they're eligible, they're eligible. I'm eligible to compete in some VERY good company - and have - and that's the luck of the draw, really. I hate to point this out, but this is not an "everyone's...

    Very much this.



    And also this.

    Riding is an incredibly expensive sport. To get to the level where you're being given rides by someone else is incredibly expensive - and it does take a fair...

    Erm, I think I should've used the sarcasm font, because you completely misread my post and got "grumpy."

    My point was actually that pretty much everyone that gets to show at the big eq level has...

    I'd risk the GM ridicule to ride like Tori Colvin. But y'all would have to help me come up with hairnets to match my rainbow.

    If it improved my riding to an extreme extent, I would totally go blonde. Or if someone offered me a bunch of horses of that quality and paid for me to show them. Seriously. Blonde it is. Or green,...

    Wait. If I dye my hair blonde, will I look way better on a horse? Because if so, I'm on it!

    I think if they're subtle enough, no one will care much in the hunters, especially local hunters. They're supposed to be judging the horse. I don't know if I'd take it into eq, but if you're not...
