    There is no qualifying criteria for the horse for a N3D, just the rider.

    I've got a teenage son who is long & lanky (5'11), and also at the age of 15, we got really stuck with saddle shopping. He tried every saddle in the store, including some whose price tags made me...

    I've fallen off with vest and fallen off without vest. They do make a difference.

    I understand your feelings, though, and it doesn't really change as they grow older. Last year when my 16 year...

    Thanks! I just put one together for Daryl Kinney, too. I figured since she has had to supervise my son being a working student for the past 3 summers, it was the least I could do for her. ;) ...

    Thanks, pony grandma. :) Andy had a bad accident at a ski race last winter that put him in ICU, and he wasn't able to really ride until June and didn't compete until July. So it was extra sweet to...
  6. having fun with Windows Movie Maker - eventing video

    I sat down last night and started playing around and ended up mixing and mashing video scenes from a few events from this past summer, set it all to a little Rolling Stones...and voila! A highlights...

    Last winter I boarded at a barn with no indoor. My dressage instructor is a 10 minute hack down the street away, but I work regular day time hours, and while I'm brave, I'm not quite brave enough to...

    Oh, I'm sorry to see this. Renate taught me how to sit - really and properly correctly sit - the trot. A very long time ago and I have mentally thanked her many times over the years for it.

    I'd be interested to know what some define as "negative comments"...I rode a test this year that scored pretty well, at 70%, and for one of the movements, a downward transition, I got an 8 with a...

    The judging can be baffling. I watched with interest a FEH class this year, in which the horses that placed # 1 and # 2 in a class did not trot on the triangle. They leaped, they spun, they...

    But you can't call it the national championships if you hold it where very few people actually event. 372 entries can not be sustainable long term as a national championship. Fitch's Corner hosted...

    This should be a mathematical exercise. Map out USEA members. Draw a circle of, say, a 15 hour drive around each facility in the country that has a possibility of hosting the AECs from a...

    I don't see anyone here critical of the 12 year old. She's 12. She's acting like a 12 year old - a very compassionate, well-intended, hard working 12 year old. However. 12 year olds also need...

    In the clinic I rode in, there were 3 of us in my group: me, a pro on a young horse, and a woman who I might describe, in all kindness, as a lifetime BN rider. I had a good experience because my...

    Be ready to jump big. A few years ago, I signed up to ride an xc clinic with him on a BN horse who was ready to move up to N. When filling out the clinic form, I waffled between the N group and BN...

    Yep. It's the adults in her life who are the idiots. It's good for kids to have dreams and ambitions. *Love* her compassion and willingness to work hard. Rare attributes, indeed in a 12 year old....

    Oh, I think she was totally suckered into the 2nd one. Whoever she was dealing with for the first horse totally picked her as a chugging the Disney Kool-Aid mark and made up the story of "well, that...

    I read it as young girl obtains 2 horses she can't afford and is dependent upon discounted board, vet and farrier fees in addition to stranger donations in order to sustain them. This is good - how?

    Just saw your additional pictures. As the owner of a 17.1 big boned horse, I have to say - either the people in the pictures are giants, or he isn't 17.1. What was your impression when you saw him...

    Just to play devil's advocate....I just want to say...I hover around the edges of the dressage world, with my primary sport being eventing. But I have always felt welcomed: eventer, "off-brand"...
