    The Voltaires are not made in Africa. They have a factory near Biarritz. Not everything made in France has to have a stamp on it that says that!

    I have 3 Voltaires. I've had Devoucoux and CWDs...

    Hmm, I doubt you can just enter the show jumping at an event. That wouldn't be fair to the other people who have done the first two parts!

    Anyway my rant has more to do with the fact that our...
  5. Ugh, frustrated with show sched for Pros developing young jumpers.

    I am a small-time pro that breeds and rides/shows young jumpers. I like to take around 3-4 horses to shows, to get experience in the 1.0-1.15 classes. In my area there is no decent "B" shows or...

    Frank and Selena Selinger at St. Georges. Not sure how much they are but the barn is not super fancy, although it is very functional. I'm pretty sure he does board and a la carte training/lessons. It...

    Mine were pretty tight to start with and a little stiff, but after they broke in they were perfect and are wearing great. I can't remember what size I got (I am normal build and 5'4") but I tried a...

    Whatever. There is always someone "richer, prettier and skinnier." Who cares? Why waste your time even thinking about it?

    I am a pro and ride between 4 and 8 horses a day. I have tried every brand of chaps out there! The BEST ones I got in Calgary at Equi-Products, they are called Kentaur half-chaps. Here is their...

    It is a bit expensive but I have one and for a smallish type horse it fits amazing! I have used it on many horses between 15.3 and 16.2. I've never found anything that fits like that! I have had it...

    I agree with SendenHorse. You need to work on your mental skills as well as your physical skills. Some creative visualization would probably help you greatly. It does take energy and time to do this,...

    The horse scene is small, but we do now have 4 "A" rated shows/year here and one big recognized dressage show, which is cool. People like to come to shows in Bend, it seems, because of the vacation...

    I lived in both Portland and Eugene and now I live in Bend. I would definitely choose Portland over Eugene, Eugene is a college town and the hoards of students can get annoying. Portland is a lively,...

    As a pro myself, I think it is my duty to understand saddle fit. Just as I need to understand anatomy, physiology, hoof care, tack, bits, horse nutrition, etc. I would absolutely ride the horse in...

    Good god, people, who cares if it should or shouldn't be bathed, it's HER horse! She can do what she wants with HER own horse.

    I have a barn and training program, I could never imagine getting mad...

    I actually didn't know if a rider's chin strap came unfastened that you could stop and fix it without penalty. My next invention: a chin-strap that looks like it is unfastened so that if my horse...

    Actually I know of some "A" shows that now charge a high jumper nominating fee, a low jumper nominating fee, and a hunter and equitation fee. There is no prize money to be won, it is just basically...

    Thanks for all the suggestions! She is turned out 24/7 and doesn't shake her her head outside. I think the real problem is that she went to a big show in California a month ago which she got...

    My young jumper mare has recently decided that she cannot handle a single.hair from her forelock or mane touching her ears. Otherwise she erupts into insane head shaking that feels like she might...

    Someone should make a show called Real HORSEwives! It doesn't have to just be about the mom's, it could be about all the non-working amateurs.
