Unfortunately, the exact location can't be released until we have a signed contract.
I don't even know the precise location yet.
My understanding is that there was no option to stay at the...
"Hard and fast" rule:
I was helping a friend look for a horse when i came across an ad I couldn't ignore. 3 months later I bought her, and 14 years later i still have her.
That USEF Dressage Equipmen booklet is a REALLY useful adjunct to the rule book. I only wish Eventing had something similar.
There are LOTS of dressage instructors in No VA.
The ones that come immediately to mind are Britta Johnston, Lauren Sprieser, Shannon Pedlar, Stephanie Millham, Donna Gatchel, but there are...
I have entered Tiara at the Seneca Schooling (unrec) HT on Sept 27. I have also signed up for the schooling day on Sat Sept 26th.
The rules for Seneca say that you can't school alone, you have to...
I think the second horse in today's Throwback Thursday belonged to someone here.
All the time.
With almost every horse.
The D&M Guidelines https://www.usef.org/documents/drugsMeds/2015/drugsmedsguidelines15_web.pdf definitely say 7 days for ace
Any USEF member can propse a rule change.
As long as you dot all you is and cross all your ts, it will make it into the set of propsed rule changes.
It is quite unusual for a proposal from an...
I guess I am still not following you.
Why would the fact that OTHER PEOPLE are drugging their horses make me not want to show, or not enjoy my horse?
Regardless of what OTHER PEOPLE do, I...
Not a USHJA member, but I feel the need to clarify a few things.
One of the main reason the USHJA was formed was that "the breeds" were fed up with so much of their USEF dues and fees being...
Poling is NOT legal for Jumpers (JP103.1) , or Eventing (EV111.2) but it is, in certain circumstances, legal for other disciplines.
For hunters, bamboo offsets are permitted, but not manual...
Nope. Still no leverage. The chain might move, but it would never get tight.
"Unconventional" is in the eyes and the brain of the judge.
I attended a judges seminar (Big time judges),
Some said they didn't pay attention to the bit, unless the horse was resisting.
When I lost a beloved horse, I wanted to ride again, but was not ready to go "horse shopping". A lease opportunity basically fell in my lap and I took it. It was 2 years before I started seriously...
At the FEI ( CCI/CIC) levels, SJ heights are bigger than Cross Country heights.
At the USEF levels, BN - Prelim, SJ heights match Cross Country heights.
At the USEF levels, Int and Adv, SJ...
I do not mind the order, either D- XC- SJ or D-SJ-XC (both all-in-one-day),as long as there is ENOUGH TIME between phases.
If it is hot, both horse and rider need time to recover, and drink,...
I have a family picture, taken just before we left England in 1956.
I still have the kilt I was wearing inthe picture, and the dress my mother was wearing in the picture.
I also have lots of...
Personally, as an eventer:
Now if you are riding a young or difficult horse.
Now if it makes YOU feel safer.
Otherwise, about a month before you ride in a situation that requires it (show,...
I am pretty sure that at one Olympic Games the ENTIRE US Jumping Team was LGBT.
That part is easy.
At the time they collected the sample at the second show, the results from the sample at the first show had not yet been released. Let alone been through a hearing.
I am not disagreeing with you, but can you point me to where the USEF rules say the rails "must be able to fall individually and freely"?
I found JP123.4 "They and/or their components...
