    I didn't see much of the 2*.


    I saw Boyd go through the 15 ab first out on the 3*....he rode the snot out of it (and did it well). Said to the person with me...that is damn hard given how hard...

    Could be and that isn't unusual.

    Most owners don't want to pay costs of boarding their horse at a different farm when they own their own. Plus for breeders that would be a HUGE PITA. ...

    Looks like she landed a nice place. Not much turn out though but I suspect that is the norm in that part of California.

    Try the Epsom salts. Just DO NOT put Bengay or anything like that on right after a hot bath. OUCH....having learned from experience ;)

    Next paper chase, take a bridge in your reins if he pulls...

    At FHI--they played it RIGHT before the first horse went in the ring. I'd expect the first 1-4 horses to keep warming up in that instance.

    If they had played it earlier and were going to do a...

    Advil helps. Also, get some Epsom salts and soak in a hot bath in them. Don't be stingy when you put them in the tub...use 1/3+ of the bag. Makes a HUGE difference.

    Another thing us eventers...

    Jump numbers are not what matters...course map is. I have jumped courses were the numbers blew down. Jumped a couple xc where the number and flag had been knocked off too. I think the issue of...

    At Novice and on a TB you really don't need to do hill work (or intervals) for conditioning. Just riding consistency. That said, if at all possible to trailer out and school riding on hills. ...

    A thank you and even a little bag of treats for their horses would be very thoughtful.

    Probably not needed or expected but people always appreciate a thoughtful gesture. Glad that you had fun...

    As someone who rarely looks at the test until the day of the show...of course I would say suck it up and just go;). But I get that this can be hard. If you have an iPhone , the USEF app that has...

    There is pressure but it is by choice. Just as others choose not to make their livelihood on horses. We all make choices. I'm not going to flame some owner who CHOOSES a different rider for what...

    No it is a choice of the rider to RIDE for a living (rather than getting a normal job) and have someone else to pay for the horse. A rider is NOT the only one who can have a partnership and care...

    Very cool! Was fun helping this morning. Lots of lovely horses. Footing seems fine so far! Planning to be there tomorrow in the morning to watch my guy do dressage...then need to go to work. ...

    The photos are great--Thank you!!! I'm volunteering there tomorrow--should be fun! The weather looks great for the weekend and the rain we got today should make the footing just about perfect for...

    There are a bunch of people I'm cheering for but of course my horse Muggle and Nilson in their first 3* have some extra special cheers from me.

    Well I competed for years with a figure 8.......so unless the rule is new, they are legal. Most crank nose bands have rings....and those are legal.

    Just as with anything, you can't make it...

    I'm not sure a lot of that helps. Most of the townships have Land Use regulations. That is what was amended. Sounds like many farms were not in compliance with the Land Use regulations prior...

    I own a horse up the levels now but this isn't new for me or my own riding. I have brought along my own young horses for over 20 years and been involved with programs and horses competing at a high...

    I would say no. It is not a course of fences at 2'10". It is one or two stadium. Big difference to me. I would say you need to jump a few at that height but that is probably what you should be...

    Ive seen this posted a few times now. The new rules are NOT letting riders ride at Prelim speed. That is just when speed penalties hit NOT the speed to make OT. The very VERY slight increase in...

    You are still early in the conditioning. I think when you get up to 5 minute canter sets that will help. If you have no hills, consider adding a small jump in your canter sets...especially if you...

    Any time you and Olli want to come up to PA, we have a few and will find a stall for you. A really fun one is coming up where every one is encouraged to wear costums. Lots of fun.

    I do think...

    Whatever Cindy. If you don't like it start a petition. Write to the USEA and USEF. Very easy to find email addresses on the web site. And speak to your event organizers. Voice your concerns. ...

    I personally think the change in speed penalties is to address the fact that it was a bad rule. If you get speed penalties by going prelim speed at novice there is NO question you were riding...

    I'm not in love with the increases in stadium. I think that should be saved for championships at the most. Only saving grace to me is that is not a mandatory requirement. I hope that most CD do...
