    I've had good luck with a hard rubber mullen mouth pelham XC for my show dragon TB. The mullen mouth seems to be tolerated very well, the curb chain can be adjusted to what works. I use an adaptor...

    Wow, really fun XC. Looked like a green moment at 3 and the ditch, but you handled it great and she just caught fire. Have fun!

    Ha Ha! Finally some recognition! One last boo-boo. When I finally moved up to Training a few years ago I had a triple combination in stadium. Never come to a combination on a declining stride. ...

    I tried to. I brought him back for the first element after the uphill gallop. I was a bit tight to the ditch and he stumbled through it but kept going to the out. You can see his head pop up a...

    My mistakes? Holy Cow we don't have that much space. At the show last weekend I wore my wife's pinny up to XC. She was away when I tacked up so I had to dress myself! Obviously no bueno there. ...

    I loved the course, open and galloping. I apparently need help jumping the middle of the fence, among other things! I thought there were some pretty beefy fences, but the drop into the water seemed...

    Champagne Run Training helmetcam

    Great show, 34 dressage, one rail, and no XC jump penalties, but a little slow and ended up 15th. The ground was nice thanks to some timely rains and we had a good run. Always room for improvement...

    I would add setting up large cabanas, tents, or other sundry forms of camping gear thus blocking a large section of aisleway. Annoying as hell.

    "Counting" to keep a rythym to a fence only worked for me AFTER I had learned to keep my leg and upper body quiet and my contact steady. When my horse is really strong XC that means hands down...

    A bit disappointing the new water won't be available for schooling.

    Keep him away form the crowd as long as possible, if the venue allows it, try to do some gallops to burn off steam, go do the minimum amount of jumps then get to the start box. Try to get him to...

    Yes! Just kidding about the barbed wire btw. Gryhrs crashed at Flying Cross a few years ago trying to avoid a rope on XC.
  18. Perhaps you are right. We need something strong!...

    Perhaps you are right. We need something strong! Barbed wire. That'll teach 'em to lose control of their horse. Electrified would be even better.
  19. Yes, that makes a lot of sense.

    Yes, that makes a lot of sense.

    I'm with BFNE. I hate rope. It's difficult to see, doesn't break easily, has caused injuries and certainly has the potential to cause more. Why not use yellow Police tape? Very cheap, highly...

    Yeah, I just read that. Laine Ashker's horse came at him running loose when Buck was on the XC course. That would pretty much pull the pin and release the spoon from a hand grenade. Is the FEI...

    There were at least two then - a woman in one of the Training divisions came off in the new water as well. She had a beautiful ride in, don't know what happened. I puked over the jump to the drop...
