    I have only flat ground and this is a challenge, but I have a deep sand lunging spot in the ring, and I also use some heavy duty collected dressage work to help the fitness along. I have a track and...

    "If you think the changes would encourage the dangerous group, then again let's modify them but please don't stand in the way of good changes."

    BN heights NOW are legislated at 2'7" with 3' for...
  3. I don't know how you change the rules exactly but...

    I don't know how you change the rules exactly but it seems to me that the rules are proposed at a meeting, discussed, rewritten if necessary, then put forward to the USEF. I'm not sure where the...

    I have been unable to read through this entire thread as it has evolved but it looks as though course design has been discussed (good, as it should be) and the fact that currently at least in my area...

    Who else was there? What fences? Being in warmup all day I was unable to see all but the last two horses....over the last three jumps...so love to live vicariously thru everyone's else's descriptions!
  6. I think the fact that the warmup within sight of...

    I think the fact that the warmup within sight of the spectators has horses in it that are next to go causes the question. Those horses are the horses that are right next to coming in the ring.

    The...

    I think I may have mentioned this but there are 400+ voting families in the township.
    It is probably time to start a political action committee and reach out to all the voting families and get an...

    I have always worn glasses and also have the progressive lenses but I do not use Transitions any more, I do not like how dark they get in sunlight and the contrast problems I have going in and out of...

    Yes. ^^^^^

    Partnerships win championships. Good concept. One that works well at all levels of the sport, indeed.

    Someone posts they are going shopping in England on the COTH event board and there are only five replies? What's the matter with us?

    How I wish I were tagging along with you! Other than pack...

    Uh oh. Now I am really afraid we are related. We are NOT going to have one of those long-lost family member get togethers in some TV studio with Oprah and boxes of kleenex, are we?

    USEA does not make the rule that defines an amateur. The USEF, our national federation, does that and for ALL equestrian sport.

    In equestrian sport by definition anyone who makes money,...

    I think mushrooms taste like dirt, too, it's an inherited thing, JER.

    Guys -- no offense - but none of the above is reality.
    I don't see change any time soon on anything.

    If it is OUR sport, then all of us from top thru bottom need to be able to sit down together and respect one another, then listen to one another.

    Many of the ULRs are terribly frightened of this...

    I want everything I look at! I always end up with something other than what I am expressly looking for. With the exception of my dear Rugby, who I wanted from the moment I opened my email and saw the...
