    Yeah, I had one that did it too - bagged up and all. But she'd had a foal the prior year.

    Oh, I envy you with RAIN! My weather issues are heat - it has been over 100 for several days this week, several days last week - we are celebrating when it drops to 96:( Today is forecast for 108,...

    What is an "off breed"? I ride non-Warmbloods, but they aren't off? I've shown dressage on two Morgans, a Friesian, and several Friesian crosses, and all of them have been competitive at rated...

    I like them because of the padding. I don't "crank" them - I can get my entire hand under the noseband when it is buckled. The buckle on the French style cavesons just hits at the wrong place to...

    I'm one of the few dressage riders that is NOT a fan. I prefer Euroseat (looks like a fullseat, but just the breeches fabric with stitching in the shape of fullseat, so I still "look the part"), so...

    It does vary, but on average, we do 45 to an hour including warm up and cool down. I voted 45 since I think it tends more towards 45/50. On really hot days, it may be less, on days when we are...

    I was always taught one MONTH for every week off. It does depend on the horse - some horses just build fitness faster.

    As for Friesians - yes, they can be very fit. I had a stallion who could...

    You are correct, cold+hot does not = warm. The original use of the terms in the US was to describe horse types. Hot is Arab, Tbred, Barb. Cold is draft - Clydes, Shire, Perchie, etc. Warm (or I...

    No rules on colors or patterns - I have seen stripes and spots on stock ties! I have a light lavender one, and have gotten a lot of positive feedback on it from other competitors, and no judge has...

    Just a quick note - you can't wear ANY shirt. The requirement is short or long sleeved (NOT sleeveless), and no t-shirts. So a polo shirt is fine, a show shirt is fine. Make sure it has sleeves...

    Warmbloods-For-Sale? And do a search for breeders in your region - they often have youngsters for sale. Not always advertised - perhaps only on their websites. Also - if there are any inspections...

    Not really correct...

    There is a difference between warmblood and Warmblood. Capitalized, it refers to the group of European purpose bred horses that did START with heavier types (many looked...

    My friend's Flair saddle was always going partially flat - after repeated fixes, she gave up and had the Flair removed and regular wool put in. I tried ONE saddle with Flair and it bounced on my...

    Rhythm is the pattern of the beat - a trot should always be TWO BEAT. Rhythm first and foremost. If your horse is showing other then a two beat rhythm, you have a major problem. So I think you...

    No, but they aren't partial pirouettes either! People want to almost stop and neck rein their horse around that corner - it is a corner - all corners have a bit of bend and flow. Side note, but I...

    I also do NOT ride deep into the corners on the loop - make it a softer bend in the corner and it flows better.

    The other thing to remember - do not ride this like the pictures show - there are no sharp corners in dressage riding! Ride it as a rounded partial circle at X - so your horse doesn't have to throw...

    Oh, I don't want to even think about it. I started buying used saddles - tried them for a while, re-sold them because they were never quite right. I've tried so many saddles, it is sad to think of...

    Yeah, I know of two other big breeders in Cali who got caught not paying appropriate sales tax (and a few other taxes) - both were several years back, but in both cases, once caught, it "cost them...

    You can PAY people - kids or otherwise, but those payments are then taxable to them. So yes, you get to deduct the expense of payroll (even if you are paying yourself), but then the people who are...

    Sales tax laws are STATE laws, so every state is different. Coming to a bulletin board like this is not a good idea for several reasons (1) every state has different laws (and some have no sales...

    Congrats on some good scores - now smoothing over the areas that didn't go so well... And since it was your first show, some of the smoothing will just be a result of practice in the show ring. ...
