    I agree that it is certainly possible for certain horses and riders to be safe at a faster speed. But why is it necessary to gallop at a faster speed when the fences are so small?

    If you're a...

    350-400 is not a gallop, but is it really so damaging to a horse's long term training to encourage it to take 2'7" obstacles in a steady canter, rather than galloping at them at 520 mpm?

    As far as...

    I'm not sure why it matters whether our lower levels align with those in other countries. No one is competing internationally at BN. If BN is too easy, maybe it's time to move up to N.

    I agree...

    I never liked mushrooms when I was a kid, but I've kind of learned to like them.

    Or maybe I've just eaten enough dirt over the years that I've developed a taste for it!

    While I like the new, dark brown color, when you say "orange" I keep picturing the old London Tan color from the, what, 80s and 90s?

    Like this piece of loveliness.

    13 yo chestnut TB gelding in PA

    I have a very nice 13 year old, chestnut OTTB gelding in need of an excellent home, due to my current financial situation. He is about 16.1h and is solidly built, so he would be suitable for a...

    I have to work night shift tonight, so sadly no margaritas for me (although that would probably make my job more entertaining) ... Guess I'll have to settle for a long gallop on a good horse.

    This is probably how my horse would end up flying, if he ever had a reason to ...

    Thank you!! Contrary to the belief of conspiracy theorists and woowoo salesmen, the plural of 'anecdote' is not 'data' :)

    As far as the topic at hand, it's tough to truly know how a skilled, heavy...

    See, I thought the OP was intended to be mostly tongue-in-cheek, poking fun at the stereotypes of eventers and h/j types. I know my responses were intended that way ... Although I myself fit the...

    54 horses on one plane ... Surely they didn't make them fly coach?! :lol:

    I don't recall seeing a single piece of duct tape or binder twine anywhere?! Is this magic?

    And I know that if I gave my horse a stuffed animal for companionship it would more than likely be...

    Ugh. I'm pretty sure the website designer was tripping on LSD. So much butterfly-farting, rainbow pooping majik in one place!

    I don't like how most of the Animo coats are cut to look like you're dressing up in your little brother's Sunday school clothes.

    I'm not a die-hard traditionalist - I look forward to the day when...

    Mine too! Too much work to keep them clean ... And they just don't shine the way bays do. A lot of people do seem to be partial to grays, though!

    I'll join the chorus of people saying no, I wouldn't buy him. There seem to be a lot of things wrong based on just a few photos of his front feet (and we haven't even seen his back end!). Sometimes...

    Exactly. Although I am concerned about the frequency with which many upper level horses are required to compete these days, I am more than willing to hear riders out on their reasoning as to why...

    I don't know the rules for qualification at the upper levels, but this is a reasonable idea. I still think it's a quick turnaround for horses that just gave everything they had at WEGs but if the...

    What are they out to prove with these particular horses? We already know that they can be successful on a shorter course at the 3* level.

    Just because neither horse completed doesn't mean they...

    I second everything that EventerAJ said, especially that it may be beneficial to have your trainer, or someone else with a lot of experience riding green horses, ride him a few times.

    Insurance info, SSN and the like is not necessary. Anyone who is injured badly enough to not be able to provide their own information will typically be transported to a trauma center and given a...

    I do use studs up front, especially with my current horse as he has poured pads in front which give him very poor traction on grass without them ... However, I've only used road studs in the front,...

    I've never really considered buying a wintec, largely because the majority of them I have seen are deep seated, all purpose/no purpose saddles poorly suited for much other than beginner lessons and...

    I think blaming the failure of the US eventing team to deliver in tough international competition on the lack of government-provided healthcare is pushing it a bit.
