    GREAT prices too from what I've seen. If I were going overseas that's where I'd be shopping provided I could find the right connections.

    For people already embedded in the horse world with a lot of connections I mostly agree with this... For someone just getting into it or returning to the horse world after time away, you'll be...

    I personally have not seen hoof flinging rewarded at all at a regional level. In fact, someone I know is riding a horse who is a bad hoof flinger with any hint of tension and they got absolutely...

    You weren't tricked. You didn't have the cash.

    To be blunt, you sound like an absolute nightmare of a seller. I honestly can't believe the buyers offered the mare back to you. You're accusing them...

    Well that's one of the more ridiculous generalizations I've heard.

    This is also what I would assume. My bet is that the rider has very busy hands and instructor needed to overemphasize the need to her to be quiet with them. Similarly - my instructor used to tell me...

    Similarly, we have a venue that tends to hire nothing but the Santa Claus judges. I don't know if this is intentional or if they just get good feedback from competitors on the high scorers so that is...

    We had a mellow but good week this week. The youngster got two days off after his show, then a trail ride and another day off. Rode him in the arena on Friday and started playing with asking for a...

    You are absolutely right! In fact, I'm going to write the show organizers from the one I went to last weekend right now :-) This is a great reminder.

    I would argue that we have no absolutely use for Santa Claus judging at recognized shows at all. I pay a lot of money to show and while I do love a pretty ribbon and a high score, I want to earn it....

    Since when do you not salute at the end? Is that a particular test? The test you're riding will specify when to halt/salute. Some of the intro tests for example don't include a halt at the beginning...

    Show report!

    We had such a great weekend, I'm kind of still in shock :lol: Aurie was an absolute pro. He was focused and calm but still plenty of forward. I had so many people tell me that they...

    Yes, I think I'm going to contact them if I can change his mine.

    He set some traps about two weeks ago... I smirk every time he checks them. He hasn't caught a dang thing no matter what bait food...

    My old guy is pretty deaf so he doesn't much care. I think my youngster and his buddy would probably settle down if it weren't for my other one. He had an absolute meltdown... Not so much dangerous...

    I will join this time! May was kind of a wash for me as my youngster was battling an abscess. June has gone great and that's extending into July so that's always a good thing.

    I decided to enter...

    Thanks all for the advice. I got the first load of gravel spread yesterday and it looks great! I gotta say, I'm pretty proud of myself. My SO helped me cut some rebar to secure the kickboards but...

    I've had that happen before too... Not with posts this old but sometimes all the posts on the front page will suddenly be from a week or two ago.

    I was lucky enough to inherit my trailer when my mom quit riding... But she financed it through a local credit union. Like NoSuchPerson's CU, they required it to be a certain year or newer. Ours was...

    Yes, I'm doing kickboards on the downhill side to keep everything in place. After digging the mud out it's got kind of a natural perimeter along the fence line that should be adequate.

    Y'all have...

    Be sure you are not confusing forward with fast. Forward does NOT mean fast, forward means generating power from behind. Your seat and body should keep the tempo slow, which the allows the hind end...

    I think it's definitely safe to say the horse is not in front of OP's leg... But I don't know that the answer is more leg... More likely, the horse needs to be sharper to the aids. The best trainers...
