OP, it sounds like you have a lot going on in your life (just guessing from your other thread regarding tough decisions with your laminitic horse, guessing this is a different horse). It absolutely...
Other easy ways to get eliminated:
*Carrying a dressage whip if it's a championship.
*Forgetting to take off bell boots for dressage.
*Missing a XC fence (or jumping wrong one which is easy in...
Really excellent! I love your steady pace, and that 5 stride chevron combo was awesome. Looked like a really fun day :)
Is she knocking them with her fronts or hinds?
Is that a supplement or a type of feed? I'll try anything, it has really been a struggle. Supposed to do his 3rd training level on Sunday and of course we came in from that jump school minus some...
I thought I saw you walk by! I was sitting in the Kubota scoring rounds and we had one of those slow motion eye contact moments, lol. I was like: I'd swear that was Jen-s.
I held a schooling jumper show at my farm on Sunday and decided to ride Cotton over the course today. He's done one 4' fence at the end of a grid, but this was the first time he's done an entire...
Also, what area are you in? That can be a big modifier in how far your money goes.
When you say "work towards your Bronze", do you mean a horse that can pack you around Novice and is solid 1st level? Or something that can finish your Bronze?
There is a huge difference in a...
It needs to
OP: were you able to find and vet and appropriate animal? So much happening on a National Holiday, I'm really impressed people were willing to work - Animal Control, Barn Owners, Vets . . .
So relieved you found appropriate sale animals at another farm. Thank goodness for that.
You're jumping plenty and 4-5 rides a week should absolutely be sufficient for Novice. Have a blast and come back with pictures!
I'm also waiting anxiously for my pre-ordered Soloshot3. I haven't used one before, but the 3 sounds like it will be easy to use for non-techies like myself.
Heartbroken for Gail. He was truly a remarkable stallion.
Good God, you're contagious.
I have edited my last post because I thought it was a bit condescending. And since I was accusing others of the same, it was a bit of a double standard.
And since I have apparently demonstrated...
I'm editing my post because, upon review, my accusations of people being condescending was . . . well . . . condescending.
I'm going to go drink a beer now. Carry on
We know that a "watch list" exists for riders, is there an equivalent version for horses? Reminds me of an exasperated parent: "I swear to god, you leave your dirty dishes ONE...
Fling a shovel full of wet manure at it. If they aren't horse people maybe it'll gross them out.
People are getting crazier and creepier by the day
FEI to do list:
6 month ban after voluntarily pulling up horse having green moments. Check.
Yellow card for being stuck on spooking horse. Check
Squeezing eyes shut while simultaneously...
You both are gorgeous. Amazing angle. How did they capture that? Were you jumping a downhill landing?
I agree with this.
I wear them at shows but rarely at home. I've been on horses that had learned to be "in front of the spur" but NOT in front of the leg. Blech.
But, like any tool, as long as...
Too far for me, but I hope you get enough entries! It is truly sad to see the smaller, grassroots venues get lost in the machine.
If you know he's a sale horse then put him up now. Spring is when a lot of people start looking and you might find the market exhausted in the Fall. He's just adorable, you've done a super job!
