    No video to offer, sorry. But I've used that phrase very rarely, and only when I literally feel the horse 'drop' into a gallop from a canter/hand gallop. And honestly, I've only felt it when out...

    As an XC warm-up steward, I've told the XC field coordinator that I am concerned about an entry. He then lets the TD know and if he has had a chance to witness the terrifying himself, he will let the...

    Here is the thing, EMT's are not reading your arm band anyway. Don't believe me, ask one :)

    I haven't evented in almost 10 years, and probably won't be any time soon. But I bought and wear a bracelet just because I walk my dogs...

    Bracelets vs arm bands

    I spent the last 2 days as the XC steward at Surefire and I was surprised by how many folks (at least 80%) were still wearing arm bands instead of the bracelets.

    I can't imagine dealing with an...

    What about asking? I've had decent luck, back when I taught, by talking them through the exercise step by step and constantly saying "tell me when you feel x". For example, small figure eights moving...

    I would ask why he feels the need to be such a cranky ass. And then I would warn him that if he doesn't stop him, the next thing he will hear from me is that 800DEADCOW aka Valley Protein is on...

    I had Tildren done on my mare for a chronic, not acute, issue. The protocol was: Stay in stall until tranq wears off, turn out. Give it a couple of weeks. Start riding. Report back.

    I can think of plenty of reasons to gun it down the line, particularly the first line. If the horse was being a cow about the ingate or getting its motor running, you can believe I wouldn't fault a...

    A lot of barns where there are few riders and lots of horses use one bridle per rider to get through the day. I know of both H/J and eventing barns where everything flatted in a basic 5" snaffle. And...

    CANTER-MA for me too! My mare came from their adoption program and I've ridden several of their re-training project horses and they have all been rockstars!

    Seriously, not a soul at that show or any other show cares what the hell you wear. I've commented on people with their hair flying everywhere, but I didn't actually care. Noticing does not equal...

    I just spent 2 solid days running XC at Surefire HT. Due to location and dates, it is always jam packed with BNTs, people doing their first events and everyone in between. This year there were over...

    I was there all weekend as XC steward. SJ always rains rails due to the questions that the terrain adds to the course. For Prelim and training, the water ate a lot of people. That, if I recall...

    And today someone else was bad boy (coughboydcough) and showed up at XC with the wrong spurs. Someone else showed up without an armband.

    I was XC steward at Surefire today. At least 3 people showed up for a jumping phase with roweled spurs. 2 of those riders insisted that they were legal and that they rode in them all the time. The...

    In the world (both the horse and real worlds), there are hundreds, if not thousands, of "Right Ways" to do things. Most...

    The XC course is open nearly all of the time. It is only the arenas that are issue.
