    I respectively disagree :)

    Most barns do not keep horses on site at WEF for 12 weeks. Maybe some of the trainers with few horses keep horses there for a couple/few weeks. But the majority have...

    ^agreed.

    Since the 3/4 year old pre green classes are not USEF recognized, maybe they vary a bit from show to show but at WEF, this class is 2'9. I highly doubt any were just three year olds...

    He looks like a very kind and sweet horse. He seems as though he would be better suited for eventing, although a H/J schooling show for fun can never hurt :)

    I did work one of the ponies one evening while the girl was working on her school work. I don't have a lot of experience with this type of footing, but I didn't...

    Hi There! The WEF leadline classes are very informal and so fun! Youngest riders I know have been two and a half. Yes, side walkers are completely fine!

    You must get a heck of a deal on a stall girl!! Never mind, I just reread, and you said five figures when my brain was thinking four figures!

    I agree with a lot of your points. I have been an exhibitor since Littlewood and now WEF and unfortunately, the exhibitor parking is absolutely horrendous. It's not a matter of having to walk more,...

    Parking is really tough and sucky. Do you know what tent you will be in?

    If you can park at a friend's farm and golf cart over, that is the best. My car has been vandalized (and so have others')...

    There is a fine line here....I know many capable amateurs who only ride with trainers at shows. You do not want to scare off a great match because you require someone to come with a trainer.

    Agree with others...dependent on how fancy, what exact shows, etc.

    However, where I am located, a winning baby green horse will easily be 50k+. If the horse can place at any of the big shows,...

    Agree 100%. Sorry LH, not trying to be a snoot, but from a quick glance at the horses you listed, they would NOT be competitive at the bigger east coast shows.

    I for one would not consider this horse crippled beyond repair. He could probably still be a very valuable animal. Navicular changes [and channels] are actually quite common in larger...

    Chungungco has ascertained she owes less than 25k, which is more than likely less than one month's worth of bills. She did not "run up a bill".

    Just want to point out that Tori has actually been riding BP's horses for quite a few years now. Remember Tori's 2010 pony finals win? That was on the pony For the Laughter owned by BP
