    What Findeight said. Patting the ground is a smart horse's ability to fix a not-great spot and still jump pretty well from it. I would not describe it as producing a "fabulous jump" by any means,...

    Did you call the police at the time? You may need to get a copy of the police report (if you did) and read what its conclusions are.

    Separately, of course, call your insurance company. They'll...

    I say this very, very gently. If finances are a concern, particularly given the costs that arise with a wee one, I would not be thinking about throwing any kind of big wedding plus reception (and...

    Second trimester is often a pretty good time in terms of how folks are feeling, so I wouldn't let the fear of feeling cruddy stop you if you really want a big wedding. But, if you're not comfortable...

    A lot depends on what you mean by "upper levels". Is this the horse I'd pick out of a field to be the next Rolex horse? Probably not - but that's a pretty rare beast, particularly when they are...

    Folks have made good points here and the numbers thrown out by BFNE and Phoenix are both pretty accurate in my experience. Being in the Mid-Atlantic or Area III with a number of events in close...

    Agree with NT. Horses pulling out at Rolex or other major events are actually pretty common, for a variety of reasons. Most of these are overwhelmingly benign: missed gallop, stone bruise, hot...

    You should get your starters and drug fees back ($20) - though you may need to remind the secretary. If they refuse, please do let your area chair know as that's an issue. As for your entry, that's...

    There's already a team component to the AECs with the Adult Amateur Team Challenge. Last year it was very undersubscribed; we'll see if this year more folks go.

    Agree - particularly with horses who might eventually be in contention for a Team spot, most folks are pretty loathe to say much publicly that could wind up coming back to be used against them. ...

    When I see a paid lease, it's only for some pretty rare unicorns of horses: the lower level packer that will win the dressage and forgive just about anything XC or the horse that will take a green...

    I find that the horse's length of neck and way of going are far more likely to affect how "big" they feel than an inch of height. My upper level horse is 16.1 with big withers - to stand next to...
