    Didn't I read somewhere that the Paine's sent a release to EN stating that they had "severed their relationship with HB". That implies HB did something wrong but leaves it up to the public to...

    I don't know any of you people in real life but I will say that every time one of the Paines's friends comes on here and loses their sh!t in a bizarre guns blazing rant against HB, my respect for the...

    as for Gin and Juice being the only horse she's known for, people who think that obviously don't pay attention to the sport. I've always thought of Ginny as her next Horse after Livingstone. I think...

    Wow, overreact much? A national team horse moving to another rider is news even if the people involved would rather no one notice. Perfectly appropriate for EN to report.

    Also, if she's doing well, maybe they want to examine why. Didn't they also keep someone who had been exposed to Ebola there for a while for monitoring during quarantine.

    I'm going to agree here. She's a nurse who has been taking care of an end statge Ebola patient. Take some personal responsibility as a health care professional and lay low for a while.

    I'd be...

    Are there any restrictions on who the US can use at the Pan Ams? If not, I think Clark and Glen could be very useful in beating the Canadians at a 2* competition.

    No one in my town uses the real full width nylon flexi's. I don't even think they sell them in the pet stores. All we have are the thin wire ones. I suspect part of the debate here is about...

    The Pan Ams are going to be intense. In a way, there will be more pressure than at WEG or the Olympics because competing in the Olympics is probably perceived to be the single most important thing...

    Another reason to vote for Icabad-a win by him will have more of an impact in racing circles because of his racing career, will probably get more attention in racing press, etc.

    Besides, he's...

    I don't think anyone thinks that this Board is a way to communicate effectively with TPTB. I do think it creates a lot of noise that reaches them and they try to ingore it as noise. I worry that...

    We cannot expect serious, horse-welfare/state-of-the-sport type concerns directed at ULR's from the smurfs to be taken seriously if they are buried in a sea of pointless noise over perceived slights...

    I do think if we want a more open dialog between the eventing public and ULR, we can't jump on every little thing they say that could be twisted and we can't take look for ways to be insulted.

    Do not friend them. Ignore the request and if they bring it up say you only friend family members. Unless you are completely up to speed on the mechanics of their privacy settings and test it...

    Eh. I'm not shocked that a lesson program doesn't have a 2'6" horses with hunter changes suitable for lesson students. Maybe the sticky changes is what made them afforable for purchase.

    That's not what the OP said happened here. A proper analogy would be the plans changing a week before the show, the OP being aware of such plans changing, the OP being aware that others in her group...

    I could be wrong, but for some four star horses, modern SJ height is a true test of their scope. Adding in XC the day before makes it truly difficult for them. A scopier horse may have an easier...

    Before you get out of bed, put your feet in the air, flex your ankles and stretch your toes as wide as you can and wiggle them around. Do this for 30 seconds before you get out of bed. It helps...

    Getting rid of the coefficient doesn't go far enough because a 75% vs. a 65% in dressage would still cover a rail and good bit of time.

    A 65% is a very good score in dressage for a horse with...

    It all starts with the dressage (and to a lesser extent, the SJ). I'll post the same thing I always post when this comes up. If you want to make riders focus on the xc, if you want good safe xc...

    I'm not sure you're getting the best advice for buyers. The advice you are getting in this thread is more like a wish list by sellers. Of course they'd prefer buyers who are going to show up and...
