This horse does not care one iota if he goes to a show.
Just know that whatever it is you are doing to get him there, it's not for him, it's for you.
There are other horses out there that can...
Management can't be blamed for acting to decrease their exposure to liability in this division. There are plenty of other opportunities for elder riders with sufficient time, talent, and horsepower...
Anyone have a link to a roster with teams/countries?
If this poor horse isn't dead yet, it must be close.
The ROUND was barely 2 minutes. The judges that judged it got to see it only once.
Someone, get a shovel.
I would let the insurance company know that the X-ray vet merely took a referral X-ray and did not evaluate the horse for lameness (since you did stop that process in its tracks). Express your...
Mystery stallion caught my eye here...
Quixotic, you are right about USEF. What's to be done?
Disappointed you didn't get something for nothing, huh?
You think you are entitled to a refund because you feel you were ripped off because you paid for what you got (admission to the horse show)...
Well then. You have no clue why or how top riders choose their saddles. At least we've cleared that up.
What kind of saddle do YOU ride in? How did YOU choose it?
Rider in the video is very loose in the tack. Bound to be a factor and grounds for resentment (if not soreness).
Agree that additional flatwork (preferably without stirrups) is indicated.
You can only 'improve' them so much. Sounds from the description like either the horse doesn't need to or can't use himself better.
Takes an experienced eye to tell the...
Rules are for sport.
They call it contract law for a reason.
Do you have a coach? What does your coach say?
Walk out a distance and get a stopwatch. Time yourself. Compare it to the recommended rate that CD's use when computing time allowed. (In the...
1) End the lease
2) Get aggressive about finding a new trainer
LOL wait till the howling stars in earnest about the microchips! 'UNENFORCEABLE' they will scream.
They aren't worried about the new horses coming over. They're worried about the ones that are...
Dealers who sell imports will benefit from this rule, no surprise if they defend it.
You gotta admire 'em for standing right up and saying "yeah, it's unfair, but that's the way it is, and so...
Which is why it's rather absurd to take offense at the topic of this thread.
Why shouldn't specific figures be spoken about? (in the abstract, at that, as most do post under screen names.)
Sorry, I was seeing 2012…not 2013, I must have been on some archived page, not the current Royal Website. All is now well. Thinking about how many email addresses I might be needing for the rest of...
Are they live streaming it? All I can find is a website that says 2013 all over it.
It will be interesting to see the outcry that will be raised.
There are going to be a number of horses discovered to be already carrying chips that may prove them to be something...
I hope you are also getting a second opinion from an orthopedic surgeon in addition to those from strangers on the internet.
They are probably struggling to make a living.
You sound pretty independent. Why does it matter to you? If you don't need hand holding, why don't you just carry on as you have been?
I would not think it miraculous at all...I would think that someone might have put a slight bit of time and effort into the horse to acquaint it with normal horse-keeping practices in order to make...
You paid $4200 for a horse that won't go in a shed or a trailer or a barn? This sounds like one of those cartoon videos with the bears.
