    This thread confused me. A neck stretcher to my understanding is a very specific gadget which is elastic rope designed to go from the girth, between the legs, through the bit and over the poll. It...

    OK, I think this is all really strange but I am going to give the OP the benefit of the doubt. Just because someone doesn't handle a stressful situation the same way as I would doesn't make them...

    I didn't think the OP was complaining, just asking a question as to what the rules were. So now she knows that there are no rules governing the qualifications for judging dressage at a schooling...

    Let's imagine a scenario where Nick P. is judging our local schooling show. After all, he's a GP rider, right?

    Your analogy is a bit flawed, unless the neighborhood football team is requiring a $25 fee per game to play. In which case, I think that may change the dynamic a bit and I bet that players might...

    High cost of living area, but not Wellington or CA. Not sure why ours are so high! It seems like it gets worse every few years. I budget $500 for a 3 day show if I stable four days and camp. More...

    Who is to say the "judge" is more knowledgable than me without any qualifications at all?? I think you are missing my entire point. And I don't require "licensed" judges for a schooling show, just...

    There are three reasons people go to dressage schooling shows. One is to get exposure for a young horse or one that hasn't been out much. Maybe in that case it wouldn't matter much (although...

    I just wanted to add that I've been through this several times now with my 4 year old. Like yours, I'm convinced its just ring sourness and nothing physical. And like yours, he is absolutely great...

    I'm in the camp that most of it is common sense horsemanship that skilled horseman already knew for years, they just didn't put it into a "training system" and add a few training gimmicks such as the...

    I've lived in and had horses here in Western WA my entire life. Growing up, I can certainly attest to the lack of quality trainers for kids to learn good horsemanship. I was in 4H and saw some...

    Second picture down, two tiny children on a dark pony. Is it just me or is that horse standing on a broken right rear fetlock? Looks like it to me. :(

    Thanks everyone for the replies! I guess I'll have to think twice about clipping him next year. The bumps are slowly starting to get a bit better, especially where the hair has fallen out...
  18. Horse breaks out in tiny bumps on chest and shoulders after trace clip

    I paid a professional to do a trace clip on my 3 1/2 year old warmblood gelding a few weeks ago. Yes, a bit late for a clip but I made a late decision to board him for a couple of months so I could...

    Sorry in advance for this being long. I have a 3 1/2 year old warmblood gelding that I bought as a weanling. Since I got him he has been very insecure in general. Always very focused on whether...
