And XC only in our neck of the woods is a hunter pace, I guess.
I very much enjoyed the article, Tom. Great research and points that you made.
Intriguing thought JER. What about XC, then dressage then stadium? That would pull a noticeably lame horse out before stadium and there would be crowd appeal and a chance for a victory gallop.
Just rereading this thread. I switched one of mine to the Micklem because he was head tossing with a figure 8 on. It just wasn't his thing, I guess.
But another idea since pain is certainly a...
And every time I read this thread the theme song starts playing in my head and creates an earworm for the day!
And while she's too modest to say it herself, Judybigredpony is a fantastic source for an OTTB well suited for sport. :D
For grins and giggles, can you borrow a Micklem bridle to try? I have two horses that it has made a huge difference in, but I'd never suggest buying without trying.
This is a great question, one for the ages as it were. You probably know all of the the stuff I'm about to recommend, but I'm writing it for myself as well. It never hurts to be reminded!
Our barn just had the privilege of hosting a wet lab for the national meeting of equine acupuncturists. FWIW there was a long discussion about saddle fitting and the clinician stated quite firmly...
As always, good question, Viney.
Lovely baby and clearly has a sense of style with the wrap and "fascinator" of hay.
I think you should call him Kiss my Ears :D.
Best of luck. Your breeding program is coming right along....
Thanks to all for keeping this thread going. It's like going to tea with friends. (Except I get to stay dressed in my barn gear.)
How about this: Does anyone know of a college with a good equine studies program? Maybe such a program would tackle an ongoing study comparing rider/horse injuries in several different disciplines. ...
Thanks Jazzy Lady, I can see it now (hums "I can see clearly now...").
However, a glass of wine with dinner has precluded me having any reasonably valuable intellectual input. A' demain.
Jazzy Lady, that link is coming up "content not found".
I am getting the impression that some folks here are thinking about designing a study and/or developing a database.
Something that would...
All due respect Gnep, there has been a sea change in the sports world overall with respect to head injuries. Prime example is the NFL, and soccer is starting to pay attention as well.
Blackwly, your comments are so articulate and incisive; thank you. How our national organizations could spurn your expertise, Reed's, Deltawave's, JER's, IFG's and Gnep's among others I just don't...
Gnep, for what it's worth to you, thanks so much for posting. You've been missed as has Reed, among others.
And thanks for the data. It really puts things into perspective, doesn't it?
Thank you IFG and RAyers for taking the time to respond. (And others who I'll not name herein but I believe feel the same way.)
Their responses explain why I am very, very sad about our sport.
I've been sitting on my hands trying to wrap my brain around ways to accurately measure the risk to which eventers expose their horses. Calling IFG and Rayers!
My bumbling logic would include...
May be unrelated, but I cleared my browsing history and then was able to get on the site. Passage of time or cause and effect? Only the shadow knows!
Is anyone else getting a "error establishing a database connection" message when they try to connect with EN today? Or is it something that my MacBook is doing?
I don't think it was stated in any way. There was some folderol about him being a second cousin to somebody or other. It was just a gut feel that I had.
And is there anyone else who has trouble...
I don't know why, but as I was watching the broadcast (not on line as many do) I was thinking that Edith's property manager is related somehow to Marigold's father. Maybe the result of a little...
