    I don't think all 'off breeds' are created equal. I think some breeds would command a higher price than others, all things being equal.

    There are other criteria not mentioned that are important...

    I just purchased one of these off ebay but haven't tried it out yet. Mine is the new competition model that has a little bling on the browband. This is really nice quality leather imo. It is soft....

    Definitely pop/soda is better from a can, especially Coke. I think the reason for that is that the can gets colder. If you put it in a glass with ice, the ice dilutes the beverage. Yuck on...

    When they have the tongue hanging out at the halt, like in the second photo, I don't think that is because of pain. I'll bet he doesn't have his tongue out when the bridle is removed, does he? We've...

    I think a lot depends on the horse and where its' strengths lie.

    It's not just the introduction of the flying change in 3rd, but also the extended gaits. I see a lot of videos of 2nd level 60%+...

    Duh on me; neither do I. I thought it was PSG only, so I think Kim will be highest for those riding that test.

    I'm not understanding this, but I admit to being technically challenged. If I am going across the diagonal in canter left and my haunches are tending to swing in to the left, I don't see how leg...

    My bolding. Are you sure you have GGT? There is one place I know about that I heard adds oil to their footing, and that footing comes from ArenaWorks, Inc. It's not GGT afaik.

    You may be referring to the ones from Anstadt-Das. Those were nice, except for when you needed to go potty. I think what happened was the owner of that company ran into various problems and went...

    I'm trying to understand this. Rancho, I don't understand why the footing is 'rock hard' in the morning after it is watered and rolled. I do understand that when it is dry, the fabric separates and...

    Yes, but the rider needs to know how to straighten the horse. The horse has to be sound, because sometimes the crookedness stems from unsoundness. Even if the horse is sound, it takes a while of...

    I agree with the horse needs to be able to gallop and be adjustable to be a good jumper. I do not agree that it is always the rider's fault. Some horses just don't have the spark or the canter. ...

    I did hunters and low eventing for about 20 years. The switch to dressage was not on purpose but just happened. Unlike you, I loved jumping and was never attracted to dressage. I still don't like...

    I understand that fiber particles will float to the top when dry. What I don't understand is why when dry it would become hard. Isn't the recommended sand used with GGT a round beach-type sand that...

    I suppose any negative behavior seen in a horse has some tension factor. But the reason it is faulted in dressage is because it indicates the horse is not 'accepting the bit' which is a criteria in...
