    Appsolute, we know you hate horse racing. It would be really hard for any of us not to know by now. You don't have to keep starting new threads to tell us about it. Maybe you would enjoy another...

    I love ponies and I think the two of you look great together.

    FWIW, I'm 5'4" and I rode a 13.0 pony for a year and had a blast with her.

    LOL, stoicfish. But even in jumping/hunting/eventing etc riders don't mind a pretty face or a little curb appeal in a horse that they're going to live with and see every day. In racing, it's just...

    Quality perhaps...but for what job? It cannot be for racing because there are no good "painted" racehorses. In fact I can't think of another horse sport where color matters less than it does in...

    Usually the dining options would be all sold out by now, especially on a Saturday. General admission will get you a place to stand on the apron--which in good weather is usually very very crowded. I...

    For racing purposes, Challenged's pedigree is immaterial since he himself was unraced. By the way, Unbridleds Song never stood for 175K (he is now deceased so he has no current stud fee.) What is the...

    As others have said, more info would be needed to decide how outstanding the pedigree and/or physical is for racing. In that venue, for the right weanling, the sky's the limit. But more likely with a...

    Am I the only one who sees a certain irony in the fact that hunters are meant to have a ground covering stride that is also very slow? And that when they jump they are supposed to leave from the base...

    Counting strides...why??

    Let me preface this by saying that when I showed in the pony divisions, dinosaurs roamed the earth. So even though I have competed much more recently than that, I still remember a time when fences...

    There's a lot of colon cancer in the women in my family. I've had 4 colonoscopies (so far) done by 3 different MDs, due to moves I've made. Whenever it's time for me to schedule one, I just go to my...

    He is out of the Breeders Cup with a non-displaced fracture of his right front cannon bone. What a shame.
