    OP, my current dressage horse started life as a pretty expensive imported jumper. He'd done a few shows in Germany before selling a the Verden elite Hanoverian auction. Sadly, he arrived in this...

    Wow, Sancudo, that TB looks like my WB in a bay coat! You've done a fabulous job of putting muscle on him!

    Love that TB/SB cross -- that's a new on on me. Also love that mule.

    I voted 45 minutes, but when it's very hot my rides are much shorter or have more frequent walk breaks. Neither one of us does well in the heat. If the work has gone extremely well, we quit or hack...

    That judge was correct, though. If it's hot enough to waive coats, it's hot enough to have some concern for the rider's well being.

    I wish coats would be waived ANY time after the end of May until...

    I'm encouraged by this thread. I recently dyed a yellowish stock tie and it came out a very attractive pink, but I worried if it would be "over the top". Now I'm thinking it's perfectly fine.

    A couple of models come to mind. Several of the Neidersuss saddles I've tried have a slight tendency to the banana shape. Their seats measure 16.75 and 17.5. i used one of the 16.75's on my Arab, who...

    You can't "build them up" to work in too-deep footing. The risk of a soft tissue injury remains.

    I'd have no problem with an older schoolmaster -- but I would urge you to remove some of your footing if it's deep enough to make him work too hard. I've seen more than one good sound horse go into...

    Ben K. Green wrote several books, including "The Color of Horses" and "Horse Tradin'". He vetted around Fort Stockton, Texas for years.

    Worth looking up, and may be the book you"re thinking of?

    OP, I'd suggest if you can't afford the stabling at your regionals, you can't afford to go at all.

    My horse's comfort & safety would trump everything else.

    I'm no expert, but I'd say younger than 7, older than 4. AND I wouldn't be surprised if I'm wrong. I'm no help, really.

    IMO, there's no such thing as a "minor" suspensory injury. Hope your other vet has better diagnostic skills and advice.

    I agree with SnicklefritzG and ironwoodFarm. Give the kid a piece of string cheese or apple slices & a carton of milk on the way to the lesson. She can have lunch afterwards. Sheesh. The lesson lasts...
