    This.

    Watching a nice hunter peek out of the bridle and hunt down to a big 4' oxer is still one of the things I enjoy most to watch.

    Drugging has been around forever. I'll never forget,...

    Denise is top drawer. She'd be another great option if Heidi doesn't work out for you.

    I did a full set for my trainer several years ago. You can get the heavy denier Cordura through Seattle Fabrics, the Rain Shed or Denver fabrics. Get samples from the companies, so you can verify...

    Teri at Phoenix Farms is excellent as well.

    If you are in Edmonds, I would also suggest that you look at Crest View in Stanwood. Kylie Forst is a really focused teacher. Her main goal is to...

    Two other excellent barns in the Woodinville area are Legacy (Shelly Kerron) and Hillcrest (Heidi Snider). Both offer excellent instruction with quality horses, and in a friendly atmosphere. Both...

    You are correct. Thanks for clarifying what I was trying to say!

    Agreed. Whether it's effective or not is beside the point. The rule book is very clear that NOTHING IS TO BE GIVEN TO A HORSE THAT WILL AFFECT ITS PERFORMANCE. It does NOT say that it's fine to...

    I would suggest that you have your vision checked. Whether you wear glasses or not, vision changes begin to occur when you hit your 40s.

    I've always had stereoscopic vision and very little...

    I helped out last year at a 4-H over Fences Clinic. 4-H gets a bad rap most of the time, but I was really, really impressed with these kids. It was a rainy, windy, icky winter day, and the horses...

    And part of that is the astronomical cost of a good mount. The people that own them are raking in the money in lease fees each year. 15%-30% of the value on a yearly basis? Pretty good money if...

    Wow. Interesting commentary. This is a sport. Not life and death. And in the ultimate scheme of things, not really all that important. The horse is where we should be focusing, and the fact that...

    Completely agree.





    And, if you add a rider of more limited means, these horses might be doing hunter or jumper classes as well. And what about warm up classes, schooling rounds, etc.,...

    I don't know Olivia Champ, nor do I know you. So reading your posts I see that Olivia may be spoiled, and that you may have a serious case of sour grapes. But frankly, there are always two sides to...

    Olivia Champ has the heart of a true horseman. I'm with her, our show horses are underappreciated, and overused. We no longer have the winter break - now there are multiple winter circuits 8-12...

    Drill team excercises are great! And having them ride around the arena, with one at 12 oclock, the next at 4 oclock and the third at 8 oclock. Keep those exact positions in relation to each other...

    I also find it interesting that postions get cleaned up fast on the really demanding handy rounds! I come back to the fact that it's done 'because it can'.

    And the problem doesn't seem to be with...

    Just a general observation: I've been thinking for awhile that we are seeing the birth of a new Breed Show Circuit with the Thoroughbred shows. Personally, I think it's great. I think it's even...

    This makes sense to me. I may be missing something here, and it's probably a moot point at this point - but if you don't own a horse, why are you buying a custom saddle? Generally, spending that...

    So, going back to the original poster. All things aside, the answer to 'Why' is 'Because they can'. Today's horses don't care. Or, they've been trained not to care. Ride yesterday's horses like...

    It's the BNTs fault. Try changing trainers. Preferrably one that doesn't drug. We all know 'that one' drugs. How else would he win?
