    This. To me the expectation of a final run on U.S. soil is a gross lack of horsemanship. It may be logistically easier, however, which I can endorse, but I don't think the horse/rider need to run GM,...

    I should think he'd also be handed a bye, regardless. Also provisioned by the IOC.

    I would also manage expectations via the USEF media kit linked above. It clearly states four will be named on...

    Does your bridle fit her correctly?

    I would definitely have the vet look at her and rule out anything physical (such as photic headshaking or allergies) first.

    Good luck!

    Not to be a Debbie Downer, but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not stay in your dressing room without proper ventilation. People suffocate in these more than you think. The open roof vent and small sliding...

    He also won the Blenheim CCI*** in 2015. The concept of solidifying performance requires benchmarks/metrics to grade success. From my perspective, Clark and LG have earned their redemption on the...

    Yes

    I have. Several times, actually. It's run by the Lexington, KY, Humane Society chapter, IIRC. I don't recall how formal or thorough the process was, but of course I'm Suellen Ewing and they actually...

    Branding 101: your name doesn't always matter but your actions always do. A brand evolves from memorable, hallmark actions - not multiple incarnations of words.

    I too had a front-row seat for that one - one of the reasons I struggle to continue spectating at events. I want to, and I do, but I always hold my breath, and sometimes can't even watch.

    I don't know you, but I'm pretty sure I love you. Your post is so positive, despite the very real nature of the dilemma you're facing, I predict you'll be nothing but successful. He's also TOTES...

    One of the last barns where I boarded a horse happened to include an apartment where I lived. It was a very well-built Morton barn, initially built by a Saddlebred person, and it had an attached...

    Agree. Pick something that isn't garish or apt to clash, and go with it. By the time I hung up my irons I was pretty much down to black and white with the faintest hints of hunter green.
  14. Less than perfect

    I haven't evented in 10 years, but I can say the majority of dressage rings within my area weren't on manicured, groomed surfaces. Many were on grass. Often on slopes. Let's face it, they were often...

    I've only been once, but Member tickets made parking/access in a real breeze.

    I had to take the train from Stamford to Peterborough to London after the event (with all of my luggage for the week...

    You've gotten some great advice and I definitely would encourage you to seek out an ART practitioner.

    Since you can't "point your toe", you actually can't plantar flex your ankle. The muscles...

    Sorry, that was the point I was trying to sarcastically make - there has always been such a stigma in the h/j world that event horses are sub-par. And that now "It only took a week to make him/her a...

    Do you know what I find obnoxious? The fact that Marcia Kulak "converted" him in less than a month. OMG really? Between this and Amber Eyes it makes me just want to line everyone up on a bridge and...

    I totally concur. He was 31. What else could you expect?

    Is he too narrow for your CWD? Sorry, I didn't catch why it didn't fit him other than the width was off.

    My Albion Show-Jumper in the NMTB tree has fit many horses such as you describe.

    Too small for me. :) I didn't see a huge difference between 17" and 18".



    I won't disagree. What was your injury? I did ride in a saddle for a while that likely caused a mild labral tear in my...

    yeahyeahyeah.

    Surprisingly, my 18" didn't feel very different from my 17.5". Or my 17". We're talking about an inch here. :D
