    I went to the Trainers Clinic this year in Loxahatchee, FL with Johann Hinnemann. (And I met the requirements; didn't have to "sneak" in. :-) ) It was fantastic. I'm writing an article for my GMO's...

    Someone mentioned a poster expecting triplets -- that may have been me. I bought the semen from my vet, Dr. Doug Langer who had bought it one or two years previously? Not sure. The triplets were all...

    Vineyridge: "My recollection is that Peters rides every step in the German way which, to my recollection, means using the heels quite a bit. That led to the last part of my comment, which may be...

    The entire group I was with thought the Friday dressage entertainment was NOT worth it. It was fluffy entertainment we can see anywhere on our local and regional level. If that's what they do at...

    Agree with AtlAtl, from where we were sitting, we all thought it looked like Charlotte cutting off Isabelle. We thought that quite interesting, since it wasn't like warming up in a very busy arena....

    I'd get a three-quarter ton since you don't know yet what kind of trailer you're getting. It's amazing how quickly weight adds up when you consider the weight of a trailer and the weight of one horse...

    FatCatFarm, what a horrible situation to come home to, one you are not likely to get out of your mind any time soon.

    Good for you for rescuing the GP, but good for you for putting it down. I could...

    We got our jumping and dressage tickets on Feb. 17. Looking forward to it! Haven't missed a World Cup at Vegas yet!

    Wisconsin: At home, no, I never keep halters on. When horse is at my trainer's, yes, so it's easier for them to turn-out -- so there I use a cheap leather halter.

    Put both my horses on the SmartPak Ultra for stomach/hind gut and the bonus is if you follow their guidelines, you can enroll your horse in colic insurance (for free). I hope I never have to use...

    Wonderful stallion. Bred my mare to him years ago; sold him when he was around first level, and a young rider took him GP. Finished at about 16'2 (mare was about that size), super easy to start under...

    I've always admired Totilas, but never thought about him as a stallion to breed to, especially considering the stud fee. But this November, after my Royal Prince gelding had to be put down due to a...

    I agree with you, Blume Farm. If I had a big herd of mares, I might be more inclined to "take a chance" on a young, unproved stallion. That's why I like to see some offspring on the ground and...

    While you didn't ask me :-), I prefer Follow Me to Fashion Maker because the walk is better and Follow Me's hindquarters go more naturally under him. FM's hocks always seem to be working a bit behind...
  23. The Taming of Totilas vol. 2 is out: Thought-provoking!

    "Volume 2" is out, and I really enjoyed the discussion about the "modern" training system and the "classical." Think I'll stick to the classical system, but you be the judge. Besides, for me it was...
