    My daughter is also quite tall (almost 5'10) with very long, slim legs. She has the CWD SE03 in a 17.5" and a 3L flap and loves it. The forward flap did not work for her because of her long, thin...

    Europe definitely has its share of fancy trainers and expensive barns etc. and horses of top calibre are still VERY expensive.... sometimes even those that are not so good :-). For the most part, it...

    It is just awful and I feel very sad for the horses that unfortunately fall into these people's hands. I don't think it has anything to do with the thrill of winning but more about the money...

    I too would recommend going with a mare that is breeding quality and even better, one that is proven. There is enough risk in breeding and the quality of the mare is absolutely essential!

    Definitely allergies. Excessive licking can also cause yeast issues which makes the itching even worse. I would definitely take her to the vet.

    That's interesting.... I have spoken with Charles Owen, Samshield and GPA and each told me they do not warrant hair worn inside the helmet in fact, they all explained that it could impede one's...

    "Private Treaty" in an ad could also mean that the seller does not need to sell or is not too keen on selling... unless the price is right. They may believe that if someone is really interested, they...

    Most horses for lease are available because they are not saleable due to soundness issues or bad radiographs. Basically, they won't vet. It does not mean that they can not do their job well, or are...

    The information is out there and trainers know that hair inside the helmet is not a show rule. It is the trainers who perpetuate the style of the hair up in the helmet and NOT the USEF or judges....

    Putting hair up in the helmet is a long standing tradition in hunters and is absolutely encouraged by trainers. There is no "rule" that says hair must be tucked up inside the helmet and competitors...

    The commission rate should be arranged with the coach/trainer in advance to avoid any misunderstanding. For purchasing, it is usually ~ 10-15% but could be more if travel is involved. If you have the...

    There are so many variables in producing an FEI dressage prospect that go well beyond just bloodlines as there is good and bad in every bloodline. Of course, the older you buy the less risk you will...

    I have to agree that I would not really look to White Star to add or maintain jump or even add size. Cassini in the bloodline along with the right mare will definitely have enough jump and many...

    I agree that it completely depends on the horse and how they were started/trained.

    Definitely possible as Carrico had many offspring in Germany before coming to the US. He passes on lovely movement AND jump.

    I would definitely not breed this mare due to the hind leg weakness. Any risk of passing on a medical condition to a foal is just too much risk IMO. The foal spends the first 6 months of it's life...
