    I also have quite the inconsistent horse - as in he scored a 52.6 and then a month later scored a 26.0, and both scores were completely deserved. I know with my guy its just a matter of the day and...

    In your particular scenario, I would find a good eventing trainer if eventing is what you ultimately want to do with this horse. A good event trainer will know what to work on and when, and will also...

    It strikes me odd that the dressage judge would just score the horse poorly if they thought the horse was lame. Either the horse is lame and gets DQed, or the horse isn't lame and the test should be...

    I usually jump once every couple of weeks. If I haven't jumped in a while and I have a show coming up I'll pop over a couple fences a few days before just for good measure. I have a dressage lesson...

    Definitely rubber pull-ons for long term wear. They are a huge pain to get on, but if you're planning on leaving them on 24/7 it's the best way to go. A bunch of the horses at my barn have rubber...
