    Thanks Alicen, but I knew that. That's why I asked what exactly do those people appalled by Andreas' photos expect the stewards or the FEI to do. People complain and create petitions, but I think...

    I don't get your point. What good is a video of everyone warming up? What if the video shows a few seconds here and there of RK. Then what?

    Even so, there are many people that would object to even a second here and there of what they call RK. It becomes too hard to monitor because 'abuse' is in the eye of the beholder. It is the...

    I don't like what Epona does. Exactly what is it they want to accomplish with these photos.

    I agree that photos are not enough to judge anything. I don't care how many they take.

    Here, take...

    Maybe not for you, but that is not the case for others. There are various reasons HO's don't want their horses out all the time. For one thing, bugs in the hot summers. Another reason is that...

    My understanding is that the stall board helps pay the mortgage. The OP doesn't consider that as 'profit'. Am I correct OP? Profit is what is made after all expenses are paid. Mortgage is an...

    A million mortgage for 30 years at 6% would be $6000 a month and that does not include real estate taxes.

    No, they aren't boarding for free, but they are boarding at cost, which is not acceptable. OP says that the going rate in her area is $500 a month. I assume that the care at those places is not as...

    I would guess it is because $3450 isn't enough income to pay the bills of the farm. OP probably got into this thinking she could make a profit on the stall boarders.

    We don't know all the...

    There are negatives to everything.

    A single, older person with no heirs sitting in a house worth (for example) 800k is supposed to do what? Die and leave it to the state or give it to charity? ...

    If you have no heirs, then why is it such a bad thing? The only way I can see it becoming a problem is if the owner has to vacate to live in a skilled facility. Then, they would likely not have...

    I don't understand this. Farm insurance is 6k a year because you hold clinics? If your farm isn't a business, then your insurance would just be a homeowners insurance wouldn't it?
  13. I feel the same as you, but we would be in the...

    I feel the same as you, but we would be in the minority. I am routinely shocked at the low boarding fees some people pay. No way can they be getting enough good quality forage and bedding at those...

    For me as well. However, as we advance in the levels, it becomes harder and harder to be in the middle of the pack without having quite a talented horse and being quite a good rider.

    Can you be...

    I don't think all 'off breeds' are created equal. I think some breeds would command a higher price than others, all things being equal.

    There are other criteria not mentioned that are important...

    I just purchased one of these off ebay but haven't tried it out yet. Mine is the new competition model that has a little bling on the browband. This is really nice quality leather imo. It is soft....

    Definitely pop/soda is better from a can, especially Coke. I think the reason for that is that the can gets colder. If you put it in a glass with ice, the ice dilutes the beverage. Yuck on...

    When they have the tongue hanging out at the halt, like in the second photo, I don't think that is because of pain. I'll bet he doesn't have his tongue out when the bridle is removed, does he? We've...

    I think a lot depends on the horse and where its' strengths lie.

    It's not just the introduction of the flying change in 3rd, but also the extended gaits. I see a lot of videos of 2nd level 60%+...

    Duh on me; neither do I. I thought it was PSG only, so I think Kim will be highest for those riding that test.
