Has Demi ever gone with black fleece under her chin before? I just looked up ML on Youtube to see the style someone at the beginning mentioned (standing up and yanking 4-5 strides out), and the first...
When you say "grain free," do you mean, nothing but hay and supplements, or a feed with no grains (plus hay obviously). If you mean the latter, check out Renew Gold. It seems expensive per bag, but...
Can anyone get the delayed xc video to play?
"[A]n accident with a large flight animal." I like that. That's how I'll refer to any spooking problems I have from now on!
But even "stadium jumps" in a field wouldn't take away all risk. Just recently a show jumper was euthanized in the ring (if I remember right) after breaking a leg at a water jump. And I thought...
For anyone stuck inside this weekend.... http://www.eventridermasters.tv/watch/chatsworth-house
Dressage is on now, and you can rewind to watch past rides.
Demeter was stumbling a bit before the fall. The commentator even said that fall was coming because the horse was tired and not jumping well (paraphrasing, but that was the gist of it).
Found it! Thanks, Finzean!
Blume Farm, that sounds familiar....that might be the one I was thinking of.
A while back there was a thread about someone's run-in sheds that had 2x4s for the floor. I've done a search, but I can't find it. Does anyone remember this...?
In an online COTH article about her a few months ago, the topic of eventing horses not being expensive compared to jumpers came up, and she said something to the effect of "that time is coming."
She seems to like to get them up to the top as young as they can be. I remember her holding up her fingers to show that Smoke on the Water (RIP) was 8 after her SJ round at Rolex.
Colleen's round looked to me like a very confident trainer training a green horse, and training him well. (I would have said that even without knowing her record and the horse's record.) I'd trust...
Ditto on Movistar's rider needing a yellow card. That was sad to watch (and certainly dangerous for horse and rider).
Just watched Colleen's round. You could tell she finished with a braver...
A French rider who got hurt 7 months ago died today per Eventing Nation. :(
I'm pretty sure he's 1/4 Clydesdale. Draft-cross near the top of the leaderboard!
I agree that poor horse (or rider) form should not result in the death of either, especially at training level. I've always heard and read that pretty much any horse can get around at training...
The first thing I noticed about the picture was that the horse's knees were below perpendicular. Maybe that was just a bad jump/picture (or maybe it was because the horse was just brushing through...
I have 3 (one of which I need to sell since the horse I got it for had to be retired, and it hasn't fit the 2 horses I got after him). I love them. Comfy and very well made.
Ah, good to hear she's still out and about.
I wonder whatever happened to Amber Eyes/Commentary.
Mulrys Error can jump! I think I hardly saw any sticky fences in his round. Go draft-crosses with giant feet!
Marilyn's round seemed very very sticky. There was a water jump or 2 that she...
