    From experience in Area IV before & after the AECs were at Wayne, the effect is less if they are within your Area than outside it. If they're in the same one, they tend to get treated by the local...

    Not sure there are barns as such, think they have Riding Clubs that effectively provide the horses, tuition etc. I know an active rider in Germany, I can ask her.

    One of the best bank complexes I've ever seen was at Woodlands in Oklahoma. It was in a hexagonal shape where each face was a different height. On the top was a narrow log jump slightly offset so...

    Don't forget you have to prepare the bottom of the water in a very similar way to a dressage ring or you'll have footing problems and possible accidents. I would second the advice to get a...

    Wichita falls is just south of the Oklahoma border (Lawton/Fort Sill being the nearest large town) and the Oklahoma Combined Training Association (OCTA) is a very active & friendly group. ...

    I would second the FB search. I run both a website and FB page that has all the schooling shows in Areas IV/V & Eastern IX but it's difficult as a lot of USEA Associates either do not have web pages...

    They have a better system of raising horsemen up through the ranks. They also don;t have the american hunters over there. These kids also hunt in some cases. I grew up...

    And maybe we have one of the main problems right here. Both horse and rider need to be at least as fit to complete the modern short course safely. It might be more akin to a sprinter than a...

    I hope eventing does not follow Formula 1 - at least as how long it took to make the sport safer. If you were a driver in the 50s & 60s, you had a less than one in ten chance of surviving the year,...

    St. Louis also has a thriving eventing scene centered around the Queeny Park HT plus a Hunt and Hunter-Jumpers. There's several people on this forum who should be able to give you more details.

    Have noticed that a lot of riders also keep their bridle number on for XC - can be very useful (other than for JJs) for a photographer to know which bay OTTB it is.

    Several events in Area IV have always run in the traditional format with stadium for all divisions on Sunday (and working down from Prelim to make the course setting easier). They have worked up...

    Kaybee,
    I doubt any existing event could expand sufficiently to cover the numbers - and levels up to Advanced - of the AECs. In the past, perhaps the Wayne venue (which held both Flutie's Maui Jim...
