    I had a young bay gelding who had lived a very sheltered life before I bought him. He saw his first paint at a show and was terrified - doing a huge big boy trot and snorting. A few months later, a...

    Please refer me to the '3 whack limit' rule. I checked the USEF rulebook, but couldn't find it.

    Agree with other posters - from my viewing of the video (which wasn't particularly clear on my...

    Yes, I've noticed the trend toward 50% as well. It seems to have shifted in the last couple of years.

    Honestly, I do not know the reason that good hunter riders lie on their horses' necks. But the good ones seem to do it intentionally - and I can only surmise that it makes the horses jump better. ...

    Not a huge splurge, but my girlfriends and I often get an engraved stall plate. I prefer the ones on a walnut block in brass with a chain. We usually do the horse's show name on the top in large...

    ^^ Thanks. Was going to try cutting the rubber off, but wanted to see if anyone else had done that first.
  8. Rubber coming off rubber pelham - is the bit salvageable?

    This is not a bit I'm currently using. I was going through my tack box and found a rubber pelham. The rubber near the joint is separating away from the metal bar.

    Any way to salvage this bit, or...

    Yep, it's one of the reasons I go every year.

    I'm hoping they keep the track intact as they've done at Ocala. It's fun to ride on it. :-)

    Such exciting news!

    I heard they are trying to get the footing in this fall so it can settle over the winter.

    I sure hope they put some paddocks on that 200 acres. That's my one complaint...

    I've done a couple of clinics with Bobby and seen him at many horse shows.

    No special prep required. He's not the kind of clinician who wants to highlight your weak points or do a 'gotcha'.

    Thanks for the explanation! I was confused about Shownet because under status it says 'live'. Now I see that means live results, not live streaming. Aha!
  13. ShowNet - is it just me, or is it really confusing?????

    Is there a live stream for Ocala? How do I watch it?

    Do I need a different subscription/membership to see a live feed than I do to purchase videos?

    What is Show Day Live?

    Trying to watch my...

    What's your plan following this horse? Once the year-long lease is up, you still have $5,500 in debt and no horse.

    Not sure how much you horse show or what the monthly costs are for boarding,...

    I've also seen shads worn for the second round of a classic at bigger shows.

    The thingies in the front are called 'points'. You can pretty much go with whatever color or pattern you want. I've...

    Most hunter buyers (myself included) are pretty clueless when it comes to warmblood registries. So go with something that will sound familiar to a buyer.

    Distal radial inter articular fracture in multiple pieces. Internal fixation. Don't think I could handle an external one. Ew!

  20. Fractured wrist surgery - how long till you were back in the saddle?

    I fell on black ice last week and fractured my wrist. Had surgery today. Didn't get a chance to ask my doc when I could ride again. Sounds like it will be six weeks in a removable cast.

    Anyone...

    Interesting point. When I think of 'derby horse', I think of the International Derbies, not the lower height derbies. It would never occur to me to describe a 3' horse as a 'derby horse'.

    I'm also 50+ and have been up and down the division heights over the last few years.
