    In your place I would wait one more year (or until next spring when yours will be coming-3).

    My plan with my youngsters is to start them right around the time they turn 3. With my now-7yo gelding...

    I would be inclined to not change anything on a sound happy horse. But there are often things my farrier and/or vet would like to change or improve on my otherwise sound and happy horses, so I guess...

    Yep, no break in time for any of mine either. And then I rode in a brand new demo saddle on 2 of my horses at my last show. The saddle was amazing from ride one (and is almost exactly what I...

    Around here you pay the nominating fee simply for the honor of riding in a particular ring. For example, the nominating fee at Thunderbird Show Park for riding in the Grand Prix field is $175...

    I think you can do pretty much anything you want if you're ordering a new saddle. On my saddle fitter's recommendation I'm doing a Sensation with an Innovation flap, velcro blocks, the XTR leather...

    Read the name of any Grand Prix and you'll have your answer, e.g. International Gems $10K Grand Prix, Purica $55K Grand Prix, etc. Also, the entry fees are much higher for the big grand prixes,...

    Have the farrier take a look at her with a pair of hoof testers.

    An abscess can present in just about any way you can imagine. I had one mare who was on and off lame for 6 weeks before we finally...

    I just ordered a new Sensation. I have an Innovation in bull leather and a Stabilizer with the grippy elephant print (whatever it's called). For my Sensation I went back to the leather I have on the...

    That's my only complaint about my Animo coats. They don't "hang" and because of that they create horizontal lines where the snaps are in the front of my coats. I'll take the comfort and prettiness of...

    No flames here! I've been eying these for years and I think this is just the thing I needed to hear to push me along to buy a pair!

    I'd love to know if this is a recent change or someone in the FEI who's not aware of the rule as well, or something along the lines of a rule only in place for World Cup classes, etc.

    I have a...

    I think I own a pair of just about everything on the market. I don't think I've had any boots that I particularly disliked. But I just keep going back to plain old Eskadrons. They're just so easy to...

    I just did a quick search of the FEI rules and could only find the minimum ages listed in the rule book. But a friend of mine has an older horse who just stepped up to the 1.60m classes in his last...

    I haven't seen the dressage girths, but I ordered a jumping girth a while back and was quite surprised at how wide it is. I used it a few times, but it feels bulky under my leg and I ended up going...

    Yes, these shirts are seen all over the place. I have a couple of them and wear them interchangeably with my shirts that have a covered placket over the collar snaps. For some reason it seems that...

    I don't show at HITS because there are none near me, but I do show at the big show series up here. And it's because they are the only shows that hold, fill, and run the High AO Jumpers. Also, the...

    Unlike the poster above me, I've always said it as shaps and have rarely heard anyone use a hard ch. Though I've always thought of english chaps as "shaps" and western chaps as "chaps."

    This is just one of those things that happens as you get older.

    As a kid you're sheltered (and oblivious) to others' horsemanship/lack-of-horsemanship. As you get older you start to notice it...

    This is what happened to me too. I thought my area was pretty level, but it ended up needing close to 4' pulled from one side and added to the other side (which means it was approx an 8' drop from...

    I have a gelding like that as well. I put him on alfalfa and it turned him into a raging loon (in addition to having him suddenly think he was a stallion who needed to mount the mares he lives with)....

    If you're not able to assess scope by watching a horse jump a lower fence you need to have a trainer (or friend) with that ability along with you. A horseperson with a good eye can typically watch a...

    I'm with y'all - I noticed it and went WTH? When I see that I never know whether they mean 16.2h or 16h + 1/2 a hand. I was quite surprised to see it in a magazine like Equus!

    The hind legs *should* swing when they back up. A horse that's comfortable behind will swing each hind leg (from in to) out as they back up. A horse that's sore (or "stuck") behind will track...
