    I've generally found that the trainers involved can generally make or break the ring sharing experience. Communication is the absolute key.

    I agree with the above poster that times have changed...

    The issue is a sponsor change. Rolex has been a longtime sponsor of many equestrian venues, shows, series, etc. including several extremely high profile ones, like the eventing 4* at the horse park...

    This is particularly true for Lynn who I believe has the temperament for a team rider and who seems to always be bringing along something herself. My initial thoughts were the same as everyone...

    A little defense of riders who take it into their own hands to warn off people blocking fences from 100 yards away. First of all, there's no excuse for abusive language so I'm not commenting on...

    The #1 goal for a professional's horse is competitive success. A professional's horse is rarely, if ever, handled by inexperienced people. Time is spent on activities that will lead to professional...

    The fraud is because a) her trainer told her the horse cost $50,000 when it really cost $20,000. Her trainer is her agent and has a fiduciary duty to act in her best interest, not in the agent's...

    As much as I like Sinead and Tate, their current form is much closer to Lynn and Donner than it was when they were finishing Second at Burghly. It could come down to Donner vetting better than Tate,...

    Tate's dressage has not been up to par lately and he's had his own physical issues. Who knows how he vets these days. Also, FWIW, Lynn has been an alternate before, I believe, and seems to have the...

    Even Lauren had a better go on her alternate horse. I wouldn't read too much into it though. They may have been subconsciously "protecting" their Olympic horses and as a result didn't ride...

    I think the warmup stewards are either too starstruck or afraid to confront the rude BNR's and the BNR's know it.

    I saw a rider without a trainer almost have a very nasty crash trying to sneak...

    That said, once you've picked the team, I totally understand why you'd do XC last for the final prep run. You want to practice the dressage, do a little SJ and get a blow out over a short...

    1-It's not really about horse welfare, it's about winning. It's more predictable if you do dressage and SJ first.

    2-When you have a jog after xc, you are limited by the rules in how you can...

    What I find particularly enraging about this relatively recent phenomenon is that it is the same BNR's and their LNBNR minions who are guilty of this while other equally BN BNR's and their minions...

    Doing SJ first creates even more incentive to pick horses that are good at dressage and SJ and cross your fingers they get around the xc on the last day. And there absolutely are horses who perform...

    JER,
    I'll stand by what I said that German professionals are across the board better at SJ than our riders. Maybe "naturally" was the wrong word because I don't mean they popped out of the womb...

    I know many ranchers who've fallen off their horses, some who have hit their heads and two who suffered serious TBI's, none of whom currently wear helmets to ride, even now. So maybe I'm going to go...

    No, I'm assuming that NV was going to do what it sounds like they always do, which is full disclosure if you call on the horse. Like most sellers.
    If he was the perfect horse for me, I'd rather...

    Here's the thing though. If I'm looking for a horse, I'm not calling and looking at this horse. Even if I just want to trail ride. And I'm not alone. So kudos to OP and her friend. You should...

    You don't own the horse but you are still trying to enforce your personal belief/judgment about his future career based on your vet report which NV's reputable vet disagrees with by coming on here...
