    P.S. Thanks to the original poster for starting this thread. This is almost literally the only/most important issue that I am troubled by in the horse show world - how the horses are dealt with on...

    I disagree. Last I knew colleges still looked favorably upon applicants with strong academics and demonstrated (even single-minded) commitment to one sport or activity. Can be more impressive than...

    That's probably what started the rumor and hopefully that's the story. Thanks for pointing it out.

    Rumor Devon Being Sold?

    I just heard a rumor that Devon is being sold?! As the 2014 show seems to be on, perhaps this either has to do with long-range plans for the property or is just an unfounded rumor. I certainly hope...

    That sounds good to me. The shows will have to make a lot of changes though to allow for that kind of free-flowing way of going - I'm old enough to have ridden on some outside courses in hunter...

    It's totally plausible to me that a horse might try to drop or roll if they were stung underneath them. I know a young pony who would lay down (sitting up) in the summer in the field because he...

    I have no doubt (and have seen) that methods that I don't approve of are used to prepare many top hunters, especially those ridden by the lifeblood of the horse business, juniors and ammies. ...

    My trainer is one of the most important people in my life and has become like a family member, especially after the loss of a parent when I was younger. There is no one I trust more to take care of...

    Fair enough. Small rings might not be the cause of this change, but it sounds like in the old days many people had the kind of experiences out of the ring or showing on outside courses to know what...

    This is a follow-on from the posts, but wanted to emphasize... By and large today's hunter rings are just too tight, it seems to me, to be conducive to a faster pace and free-flowing rounds. This...

    Thanks everyone who has responded to date - this is such an unfamiliar space in the horse industry to me that the advice is really helpful. The yearlings are each by well-known FL studs (High Cotton...

    Educate me (please) re: yearling sales

    Hi, I am from hunter/jumper land and have friends with two registered racehorse yearlings, one or both of which they are interested in offering at a thoroughbred auction this summer/fall. Yearlings...

    As a child in the late '80s I was given "A Very Young Rider" and still find the book magical. My knowledge of Debby and her family is limited to this children's book and the information in a COTH...

    Bit of a tangent, but I think that's very true, RugBug. My trainer, who is very supportive of and values her adult customers, nonetheless finds it pretty draining sometimes. It is easy to get in...

    Fortunately it seems like there is a barn for everyone in terms of rules, etc. Mondays off (or barn closed) was a constant at the barns where I have ridden though perhaps it's more common in some...

    THanks for taking the time to look that up and respond! I was pretty sure about the tattoo, but today I am definitely going to check it again because we have had the mare close to three years, so it...

    It seems contrived to the point of tacky though in a sense - it's not just painting a picture in terms of black coat/navy coat/etc. - it's almost like posing as a younger or greener rider. I guess...

    Quick question: does Markel cover non-commercial, private owner's horses for accident/injury, etc. or is just for commercial operations?

    Thanks.
