    I was kind of wondering about Tryon too. I haven't been there so I don't know what would need to be added or changed, but it's an interesting thought ( and close enough I'd hopefully be able to go...

    Some horses are "slab sided" meaning that they don't have a nice round barrel to hold your leg in place, making it prone to swinging. It could also have to do with how big or bouncy the stride is.

    I would suggest three things, which others have touched on.

    Out of curiosity, do you ever take him out to trot and gallop in the open and on trails at home? If he's doing so well in SJ, it doesn't sound like a 'jumping' issue to me ... It sounds like a horse...

    I was there in the P/T division and thought the course was a lot of fun and had a good variety of questions. The water did seem to cause its share of issues for some riders, but my horse gave me a...

    I read that yesterday and did find that some interesting concerns were brought up; however, it seemed like there was a lot of opinion and conjecture and not a lot of cold hard evidence.

    While I'd be interested to know what the injury is because I *really* like that little horse and would like to see him back in action, I can totally understand why they would be intentionally vague. ...

    I feel that at the bare minimum, volunteers should be given drinks and lunch. It doesn't have to be fancy ... Water and a sandwich is fine, maybe some granola bars or trail mix ... Just something to...

    Damn, some of you guys are lucky... Your horses never misbehave if they're not in pain, and jump perfectly around 1.5 m courses just because their tack fits and you feed them carrots when they're...

    As a graduate Pony Clubber, I can't stand dirty tack at a competition. I'm an amateur that works multiple jobs to finance my horse addiction, so I can relate to not being able to clean it after...

    I'm all for riders being athletes and all that goes with it, including additional training when we aren't on our horses. I do cardio and strength training in addition to riding most days.

    I would gladly go back to having no dressage coefficient.

    Just out of curiousity, I wonder what the concensus is of the majority of riders currently competing at the upper levels? Are most of...

    In that case, he sounds like he may well be a good candidate for a running martingale! You may also be able to borrow one to try and see if he goes well in it, before spending the money on one ......

    when exactly does he throw his head? I'm assuming his tack fits, teeth are good, etc.

    Sometimes nervous, sensitive horses go a lot better in running martingales. When they throw their heads, the...

    I generally believe less is more when it comes to jumping experienced horses. It keeps them sound, fresh and looking forward to their jump sessions. My current guy jumps stadium fences about 3x a...

    That could be kind of fun ... Put the metallic gold duct tape on your galloping boots for XC, and maybe a pad with metallic gold trim :)

    I would guess that overall for resale values, gray color is a positive. Even if you look at the OTTBs on canter, a gray horse will often be priced higher than a comparable bay or chestnut. They are...

    If you choose to leave the whiskers long, I don't think it should be considered 'sloppy' or cause your scores to be marked down.

    However, I'm also not convinced that clipping them is horse abuse. ...
