    Hunter/Jumper land escapee and Adult on a 14.1h pony here. I'm 5'3" and fluffy. If anyone gives me the stink eye I know it's because they aren't having as much fun as I am on my turbo charged sports...

    There are a mountain of options at Woodside Horse Park which is only about a 6 minute drive from where she's currently taking lessons. John Robertson of Sydney Harbor is more of an Eventer than a...

    If I ever go back to hunter-land, I will invariably show a mare with a slightly silly male name. Something like Hubert, Willard, Statler or Waldorf.

    Nowhere near a 3* rider myself, but I strongly suspect that the NorCal area Eventers would make the trek up. My barn already travels down to Galway, going the other direction on 5 wouldn't be too...

    Sure, the big boys can cover a lot of ground with each step, but they just don't turn like the 14.2-15.1hh crowd. Give me a game little horse who attacks the track - there's nothing that compares.

    My mother is also of the "must-have-a-nice-tail" club. No fake tails for us. For me a good tail is not so much a requirement, but more of a bonus. There is a certain quiet pleasure in hand picking...

    I am too! Thank you for saving me from buying him myself! I have been eyeballing his ad at CANTER longingly and was likely to do something silly this weekend if no one had scooped him up :)

    Doing a lot of similar work myself as I get out to the barn at dusk. We don't have an indoor, but there's just enough ambient light from the barn and the moon that I can see the white arena rail. I...

    "Ten feet or two weeks" is the rule I've always heard. If it still looks awful at 10 feet, make it 20 :)

    The HDR figure 8's come in a cob and are priced around $65-85. They're certainly not on-par with some of the others mentioned in this thread, but they make for reasonable day-to-day, using gear. ...

    Shirt-over vest may end up looking extra weird, which is why I had pondered some other sort of option like a hoodie. Most of my hoodies are on the...

    Can't find it in the rule book :/

    Figured someone here might know or be able to point me at where I missed it.

    Is it legal to wear a shirt/hoodie/anything OVER your XC vest, but UNDER your pinny? I'm having a totally petty vanity...

    I'm getting a jump-start on my post show-season improvements and number one on my list is to improve my rides to at least ONE part of my unholy trinity.* My trainers just built a lovely...

    Was this the Eventing-Dressage or the Dressage crew? I need to see these! :) I'm starting to like non-traditional colors on coats these days and these sound like they might be inspirational!

    Your horse, your money - if someone thinks you're doing the horse a terrible injustice by making it jump around a Jumper course when it "should" be doing the Hunters, well... there's the sale! :)

    Another SSV fan here. The navy version looks amazing when paired with a navy coat. I actually opted against my Dressage and just wore my Stadium coat last event because it looked so fierce :)
