    Field boots are fine. I wear them (2nd level) because I have an old foot injury that makes it impossible for me to get into most dress boots. Hunt coats are fine at any level that doesn't require a...

    Looks like it might be an old Crosby or Pariani jumping saddle, but how are you going to tell whether the tree is okay? Might be a bargain if you're looking for "d├ęcor."

    Ah, that's like during the Cold War era: The Russians invented EVERYTHING, especially an individual named Comrade Reguspatoff!!*

    *just in case: Reg. U.S. Pat. Off.

    Thanks for that. Very interesting. I had only heard the "Joker B's sire and dam were both registered QH" part of it. I did know about the Arabians, having done some pedigree research for friends...

    FWIW, I do remember back in the '70s being told by a course builder, "I could build a 2'6" course that would be difficult for an Intermediate rider to get around clean." Say what? Then he talked...

    Hay (*G*), if it can do all that, they should apply for the JREF $1 million, because, surely that's a claim that ranks up there with dowsing, speaking to the dead, ghosts, and homeopathic remedies...

    English, treeless, whatever. But the last thing it looks like is NEW. Or is it just dirty?

    Was that an issue? Three Bars, the major QH "foundation sire" was a registered TB, and of course, horses up to 3/4 TB are registerable as "appendix QH" and can get "regular" papers through...

    Interesting. Anyone remember "Fred's Revenge?" Racing Arabian beating the world. Reached the point where no one would enter against him. I saw pictures of him running, and while he has an "Arabian...

    And some horses were accepted as QH that weren't, really. I.E., AQHA wasn't able to tell the difference between a regular roan and an Appaloosa roan. The result: Joker B, leopard Appaloosa...

    [QUOTE=Brandy76;7805719]The poster who mentioned the hunters - do they want to add a couple of fences to their courses that are above the height?

    Yeah, but at a schooling show, I'm not doing it for the critique - I'm doing it to get Mr. Mark to learn to behave. I did a schooling show in Petaluma (scores were reasonable, pretty much was I...

    Well....gee. If my instructor makes it to two shows in a season to warm me up, that's a fairly big deal. While I've been doing schooling shows lately due to my horse's behavioral problems, mostly I...

    Well, I generally am on my own at shows unless my instructor has multiple students at a particular show. Generally that doesn't happen, simply because I go a bit further afield than most of my...

    I'm of Cindy's era, an old fart who started eventing in 1975, won a Preliminary Horse Trial in 1979, and diddled around at Training and Prelim off and on for about 10 years after that, before...

    I used to, but I don't know many people who do anymore, except those who show in breed (i.e., AQHA/ApHC/APHA) showmanship classes. They'd get dinged if they didn't. *shrug* I used to before a...

    Well, yes, since my reason for doing schooling shows is not to test whether we can do the work of the level (we can), but whether or not my horse will behave and not be a bronc, or super-tense, or...

    It's interesting. I haven't really paid attention to addresses on this threat, but in 40+ years of boarding, I have NEVER called and made an appointment to look at a boarding barn. I HAVE called to...

    We have a lot of long-term boarders. BOs live on property. People come in at all daylight hours, stop by house, and if someone is available, are given a tour. If BOs are away, and a boarder is...

    And let us further add that it's all nonsense - horses' brains are not configured like human ones, so left/right is not only stupid, it's biologically inaccurate.

    One is generally so outraged by something like this that it's hard to get around, "he should have known," even though I'm sure the trainer in question is equally appalled at what happened as we are....

    I figured it was probably something like that, but who doesn't check at least twice a day, especially in extreme weather? My horse has a full trough at all times (shared with one other horse), but...

    Oh, okay. He was only "negligent" not intentionally cruel. So that's okay. /sarcasm/

    I think there actually IS a buckskin registry, for what it's worth. Quarter pony might also be a possibility. I don't know about AWB/AWS. I think you have to know who at least one parent is for...
