    It was eye opening for me when I started working at HF, just how different it was than the training I received growing up. Detail is for sure a huge part of it. There is very rarely a course...

    A very good friend of mine who runs a fun and successful farm in that area. I believe they have a small lesson problem as well.

    heres my guess....they bought the horse after Devon Jr Weekend started. Well, according to USEF and their infallible system, you can't change a horses name once a show has started. So, instead, they...

    Just wanted to clarify, "Sportstalk" is known in the barn as Joey. "Sportser", a medium pony leased by Dildabanians last year, is known as Sporty. Two completely different animals.

    We also call them polo bits, and have shown in them with success, but only when all other options failed. Slapped two reins, used a "normal" curb chain, and off we went!

    Of all those, Bill is definitely the rider I am most in awe of! Looks so smooth and accurate, like the perfect marriage of past and present. Thanks for the link!

    And my point is that I do not know of a single farm who does this. Not one. Every person who is listed as "trainer" that is not the person at the ring is the manager. The assumption that the...

    Wow. Just because someone's name indicates a Hispanic heritage doesn't mean all of this. It's incredible to me how quickly it comes to that. If one of our American barn managers names were on there,...

    Take a look at the entries of the top Grand Prix riders- Laura Kraut, Mclain Ward, Darragh Kenny, and Reed Kessler are the first to come to mind. They all have their managers as the trainer. In fact,...

    Wow. What amazes me me if the amount of speculation and jumping to conclusions going on....

    Taylor Ann Adams won the Pony Medal Final, the THIS Finals, and the SE Maclay Regional in the same year a few years back. Although she did not get a ribbon in the Maclay Finals, I do believe many...

    Why it is so hard to believe that he is capable of making these decisions? Because he doesn't ride or train? Because his name indicates his Mexican heritage? Believe me, he knows more about horses...

    Were a suspension to occur, life at Heritage would go on, just as it would were Patricia or Andre named on the entry. However, the goal is not have a suspension.

    As one of Heritage's trainers, I can assure you Gerado is no mere groom, nor was this a decision that was taken lightly. Lawyers read the description in the USEF rule book, and after much discussion...

    I remember that pony well! Scott Kemery had it as a green, and I think Emily Williams rode for him. Then the Goutals bought it. Great mover, such an adorable pony! Wow, it must be up there in age...

    In the Northeast, to have a very competitive3'6 horse, you are looking at much more like $5000 a month. Many barns are hesitant to lease so short term, which makes the fee even higher.

    Great job! The flaw I see is mainly when you have a waiting distance...instead of "melting" into the quiet distance, the last stride looks a bit fast. Make sure you have very little leg pressure that...

    All these posts seem to be that the kids want the BNT to give them the opportunity NOW, but you know how you end up with the big names? You WORK your way there.
