    Was this held in the same arena as the Dressage, or are there two arenas in the same building? Because while I haven't seen any of the jumping video, I did watch video of Charlotte's freestyle on...

    The poor staff were totally unprepared, and they were so understocked it wasn't even funny. The one by me--which serves part of DC, Arlington, eastern Fairfax county, so huge population centers--got...

    I'm up early, though also to go ride, I'm just planning on stopping at Target first ;) One of the dresses I wanted (My Fans) was online-only, and I guess it's no longer available; it's hard to tell,...

    I don't think the lighting is any darker than, say, "Amadeus" or "Barry Lyndon," both of which used natural lighting. It's not dark, it's just not the modern, fluorescent lit set lighting you're...

    I don't understand it for a leaner, either. I borrowed one from my trainer to try as a jumping bit, where we do actually need just a little more oomph to my my half-halt than we do when in the...

    Is the horse missing the eye, or just blind in it? I've known a couple with one blind eye that have done quite well once they've adapted. One did the Childrens, and is doing some lower jumper stuff...

    If they're doing schooling shows, a lot of them will offer the Eventing tests as well, at least around here; the Beginner Novice tests are basically Training, without a stretchy circle, You might...

    Yeah, I've had that belt as my "show belt" for at least two years. No idea I was ahead of the trend! It does hold up quite well, for the price.

    Nope, mine definitely fits better with hair up in a net. I took it with me to Ireland last spring to go riding, and put my hair in a French braid, since I didn't want to fuss with the hair net...

    At most local shows/events here, there aren't stalls available. So the times there are, I haven't bothered. I might do it once this year, so we can stay overnight and show two days, without hauling...

    Did you try the Pikeur Luganas? I ordered two pair from Calevo after someone on here posted a mind-blowing deal on them, and they're definitely old school, waist at your bellybutton breeches. They...

    Is there some difference between an "equestrian" polo and a "regular" one, other than a brand logo that makes them double the cost? I've shown at rated dressage shows in a $10 Old Navy polo when...

    If you're really planning to try and split the difference between commutes, I second the suggestion of Arlington, or eastern Falls Church, so you can easily get 66/Beltway/270. I do that from EFC...

    How big is that Amaretto horse that just went? He looked like a pony! Though perhaps it's just that the man on him is tall.

    I like the rise of more technical fabrics made to move in, in equestrian apparel. However, IME, the cooling shirts only work to cool you if you're active somewhere that the humidity is low enough...

    I think this is a great suggestion, Carol, if these young riders' trainer hasn't already given them one. They may simply not have any idea of pre-show expectations.

    That said, around here, I...

    FITS had some pimple gripper ones for a while (maybe not rubber, but definitely something synthetic, not leather), but per a barnmate who had them, they were less grippy than regular fullseats.

    How odd. Do they not do any gymnastic or grid work? Trotting in there is pretty common, as are exercises where there is some trotting of fences involved.

    I've done a fair bit of jumping from the walk with mine. In our case, it is because she can get very revved up about jumping, and that forces her to slow down, relax, and take her time. The first...
