Anytime I have had a horse tested at a USEF show, the blood was drawn when the vet showed up. Period. It was not optional. There was no choice for the exhibitor about when or if the blood sample...
I'd love to see a video of his previous Invitational win with David Raposa. :)
The water jump could be an issue, but better to hold the finals with a little course adjustment than cancel the whole thing, I would say.
They could section off 30 feet or so off one end of the...
I was just at Gladstone over the weekend. The indoor is not huge, but it's not tiny, either. They could probably make it work in a pinch.
It is pretty darn wet and gross at the horse show. The footing in the show rings and schooling rings is actually just fine, but getting to them from the barns involves getting pretty wet and dirty....
There was a first round this afternoon.
I seem to recall someone winning the Maclay finals in a Kimbericke a few years back. Erin Stewart, maybe?
I've only seen a few trips, but it looks to me like the horses that move and jump well with good trips are getting appropriately high scores.
Omg again. I saw the doll in person today at the Central Park horse show. So fantastic!! It said so many of his classic lines. Just hilarious to hear his actual voice, with his legendary tone. :lol:
Molly, thanks for the information!! :)
Oh, I remember many comments over the years about the height of the boots in his Jumping Clinic column in Practical Horseman.
The golf cart idea is a stroke of genius! Along with a little headset microphone. Plus a helmet, in case he needs to get on one of the Breyer horses in a clinic.
Omg. How great would it be to set up a Breyer clinic, with George standing in the middle, giving instructions??
Georgina Bloomberg and her horse Crown appeared on Fox News to promote the Central Park show. I must say her horse was an excellent sport about the whole thing! :)
Has this already been discussed and I missed it?
I, for one, cannot wait to hear which of his words of wisdom made the cut. And for those who actually play with their dolls, can you imagine the...
I believe the Pope's visit could affect three horse shows, if only by proximity. Capital Challenge, Central Park, and Dressage at Devon.
What does the Pope have against horse shows, anyway??...
On a slight tangent, it seems outlandish to me that the FEI dressage riders have to wear helmets at all times- except for the few minutes they are actually performing in the public eye. Really??
Someone can do 50 shows in a year if they want to, but only the best 15 of those shows will count for Devon and Indoors. So it's more a question of quality horses who can get the most points within a...
That may be, but there is a set number of shows for points already in place, for those who are unaware of it.
I do know somebody who qualified for Indoors last year after going to about 8 shows,...
Entries for hunter divisions at Devon, Harrisburg, Washington, and the National Horse Show are based on point totals for the horse's best 15 shows during the qualifying period. It has been that way...
Mindful seems to win plenty without a martingale.
Live scoring- it looks like so far the course is winning:
It's not working for me.
Is there live scoring somewhere?
