    My current guy is an Appendix gelding ... His AQHA name is absolutely awful! I like to keep their registered names if they are decent, but I just couldn't bring myself to enter anything named "Fat...

    About what am I lying? Differing in opinion from someone else does not constitute a lie.

    :rolleyes:
    Ok, so "every day" was a teensy bit of hyperbole. It might only be every third day or so.

    Thanks for keeping it classy, with the name-calling and all.

    It seems to me that when it comes to cops, it is somehow "acceptable" to judge the morality of the entire profession based on a few bad actors, much more so than with other professions or groups of...

    We get it, OP. You don't like cops. Is it really necessary to start a new thread on the same topic every day?

    Even if not having a drop score does encourage riders to start on course with a more conservative approach, it will certainly encourage them to continue on after multiple refusals or on a tired horse...

    This made me giggle (bolding is mine).

    I think that this individual's reply is all the information the OP needed.

    I think you've solved the age old question of how or make equestrian sports marketable to the general public! Maybe we should add some cheerleaders and a halftime show for good measure too :)

    In that case, we should probably change the name to "extreme adventure hardcore horse riding" or something ... Think of the reality show and YouTube video possibilities! "She rides a horse out into...

    Seriously!

    When I tell a non-horsey person what I compete in with my horses, I generally end up having to give a brief explanation of what eventing is. I am quite sure I would still have to do...

    Agree. Problems like these can be kind of fun to figure out, at least for nerds like me.

    It's too bad this sort of thing can't just be shared as a fun thread along the lines of, "Are you smarter...
  13. I don't really have a problem with the changing...

    I don't really have a problem with the changing of the "star" levels in and of itself, because aside from the addition of a new FEI level at the lower end of the spectrum it would theoretically...

    The funny thing, this whole thing appears to be packaged largely as a way to address safety concerns related to horse falls on XC ... And yet there isn't a single thing on that list that actually is...

    Sounds like it's about time for eventing to form our own international governing organization and bid good riddance to the FEI.

    It would almost certainly mean losing the Olympics, but that would...

    Yes to this. It seems like there is a lot of discussion on here about how we have never been as good as the Europeans, their system has always been so much better, their horses have always been...

    But the data from any research in other sports can't be applied directly to equestrian air vest use. Accidents in different sports have different predominant mechanisms of injury, plus as discussed...

    If I remember right, her statement had said something about having "missed some gallops" so it kind of sounds as though there was some sort of minor physical issue that she was initially hoping would...

    I'm not under any delusion that federal prison is a stay at the Hilton. But there are people in other countries (and probably even some in this country) who are starving and don't have access to...

    Agree 100%. Regardless of what would, in his mind, be the greatest punishment (and it's hard to say, when the person in question clearly has such a warped sense of right and wrong) I don't think...

    I agree that it is very likely due to the lack of shoes. He won't show as "lame" because he is probably equally tender all around, and he won't have heat/swelling/bounding pulses or the like because...

    That is exactly my concern. If I'm not mistaken, air vests were originally designed for riding motorcycles, not horses. The inflation of an air vest, or lack thereof, isn't going to change the...

    I've never worn an air vest, but I highly doubt if an inflated air vest is going to apply anywhere near the pressure of a pair of MAST pants! However, I do agree that the inflation/deflation could...

    This may sound silly, but in all honesty one of my biggest concerns about the air vests, particularly as the owner/rider of a horse that likes to find excuses to spook at things, is how noisy they...

    Whoever it was earlier in this thread that compared this guy to the Newtown school shooter was right on the mark.
