    It is interesting to me that this is purely an eventing problem. US showjumping has a very deep bench that will be competitive for both top team and individual medals, and the dressage team is the...

    Yeah my first thought was "doubled up on Pilot, *plus* Stakkato, no wonder it can jump!"

    Brian, looks like he's got a ton of jump. If the XC thing doesn't pan out you can always send him to the...

    You should have checked for Jung, too, because your statement above is not true. FischerTakinou was purchased by Jung at the start of 2014. The horse was produced to 1* by Jennifer Vuilleman of...

    I didn't think it was the most tactful riding, but mostly I thought that the horse looked like she really disliked and was distracted by the Doda boots she was probably wearing behind. Almost all of...

    The team is already picked. The team and alternates were named. The CIC was the final prep, for all of the myriad reasons described above. Running show jumping before XC was a nice confidence-builder...

    Warm water gentle wash, hang dry. If that's not getting it done, add some oxyclean, let them soak and/or do a pre-wash, and don't put too many other items in the wash with them.

    The potential has already been judged and the team has been named. This was a final outing to prepare for Rio.

    Not sure how it was an "epic fail." Some gaps in preparation were identified (and...

    Same here. I have Kastel & Irideon. If it's dry and there is a breeze they are great, but if it is humid without much breeze, I find them insufferable.

    I don't think Maya will make that mistake again. The horse didn't understand the question, and he was far from the only one.

    Blackfoot Mystery was combative out of the box today. Boyd walloped...

    I believe it's an FEI event, so they'll have to be on the grounds. Which is neither here nor there, it's still so close that it's not worth mentioning.

    I'm just going to point out that it might be a whopping 5-10 minutes from Hannah Sue's farm to Great Meadows. So while the rest of it may be somewhat daunting, this one leg of the trip is more like...

    If you don't miss and already have a great eye, why on earth is your trainer trying to change where you look?

    I heard that this morning. There is no reason for Rory to go to the Olympics, though, he makes more than enough money on the pro tour and has lots of sponsorships. There's not much he can gain from a...

    There's really no such thing as growing pains in horses. You've significantly changed his shoeing in front by putting steel on, as well as probably changing the angles, plus pulling back shoes. I'd...

    Is anyone having issues with it pausing repeatedly? I can't go 2 or 3 seconds without the feed being interrupted.

    There's not a whole lot close to Olympia, besides for a couple of dressage barns. You are going to be better off up a bit further north towards Tacoma.

    We had a similar horse come into the barn maybe 8 years ago. Big round bay gelding, maybe only 16h or 16.1 but took up lots of leg and huge step. 13 YO at the time, at PSG or maybe I-1. He had been...

    Let me clarify- I wouldn't ride him either, wouldn't pass go, and would take him directly to a major clinic for a nuke scan and rads of neck/back/etc because you are going to spend almost as much...

    To play devil's advocate, if you miss badly to anything on a 3* or 4* XC course and the horse still tries to go, it's going to end badly whether the horse is used to help or not. And trust me, pretty...

    It moves around for sure, but seems to end up back in the left hind. I had immediately gone to the left hind in the previous video. He doesn't look bad in front at all.
