    I think springoff has it right. I haven't seen any of the episodes, so don't know how this critique was deliverd, but some trainers never get after you, some trainers always get after you, and some...

    LH, your position in that lovely photo (damn nice horse you've got yourself!) is EXACTLY the type of position that is being lamented in this threat. Honestly, I think half of the people on these...

    tb1201: I wasn't there, but I heard that the problems our American hunter riders had were more related to some of the FEIesq conditions than anything else. I think our riders are the best in the...

    Bascally, GM started advocating the crest release. So everyone did it. Also, more competitions were being held in arenas, instead of on outside courses, with more built up fences. Then horses started...

    Um, yeah, it's like really not ok for the poor kid to not have a GPA. I mean, seriously. Consider the following vignette:

    I was only subjected to this leadline stuff at the Hampton Classic, where...

    I wasn't going to post, but it's raining too hard to ride, and it seems wrong to ruin my spring break with the 50 page research paper hanging over my head. So here goes (sorry for the length; I'm mad...

    aight. I'm not reading beyond the first page because I feel like there's a trainwreck and I just want to give an unbiased answer. If the pony is very young, to be shown on the line (I thought it was...

    It does happen, and honestly it's why I would never buy a horse without my trainer--because if that's their policy, it makes it awkward. The parents should have asked before they searched on their...

    Ok, RC does not just have problems with their hats.

    ask around about how long their other stuff takes.

    but let's discuss this custom issue. If something is custom, it is made from scratch....

    elizabeth--know trainer KNOWS that the horse is a good horse. You can get people who know Jeff, and say "well, he has nice horses, and they do well, and i'm sure if he bothers to have it in his barn...

    pwyn--

    I don't konw if this is relevant, or if i misunderstood your post, but the sellers in this case are about as far from shamateurs as you get. They are REALLY good professionals who have won...

    sorry, i hope my sarcasm didn't get misconstrued--

    I'm sure that they did vet the horse, and therefore would have taken blood. What I said was in response to the first comment suggesting that the...

    you really can't comment on a horse's behavior from an article. For one, it doesn't say "striking out," it says "striking people." If a horse were to rear up and strike someone, then it's hard to...

    yeah, read for comprehension...the complaint wasn't to your mother, but to the people who EDITED IN the mistake.

    again, i fail to see how this is NOT support for coverage, because it's proving...

    wow. nasty nasty nasty!

    first of all, on a very much lighter note, I take the Times over the Post any day. Go New York. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

    Ok,...

    i agree...at a hunter/jumper show, the first person in the ring when you come off (and it will happen) is the trainer. They don't need to send the medic in for every fall, but if the hrose and or...

    while someone should, certainly, be ABLE to warm themselves up and go in and show, showing without a trainer simply isn't done. If there was a grand prix, i'm going to guess this was a sizeable show,...

    velvet- your idea would completely prevent someone who has the ability and means (and more importantly horse power that would be wasted at small local shows) from showing on the top circuits, at...

    back onto topic: the bye should be used if there are "surprises"--both good or bad. If a very novice rider has a lucky (or legitimately good, but not good enough to outweight their novie-ness) next...

    ok, why do i even bother?

    on the disability front: if margie (whom I love (oh, oh note the non-painful usage--was anyone else bothered? do i just have an ubermodern ear?)) would listen to her...

    i say this with about 32 hours of studying for this FU<KIN& final behind me, and only 4 mor available in front of me, so forgive me if my perspective is a little warped.

    LIGHTEN UP, PEOPLES!

    i think it will have little to no impact, whatsoever, because the *majority* of horses are cared for beautifully and, while possibly medicated (it's the end of a long year for those guys), they are...

    xegeba, i know! the difference in price between people who buy horses through their trainers who actually go to shows and those who just go to big dealers is huge. i actually didn't know that a lot...
