    Yes, the Paulick Report article is poorly written. At the end of the Paulick Report article, it states "Read More at the Wall Street Journal" with a link to the WSJ's article about the matter. It's...

    Now that you're moving up to Prelim, it's time to change your thought process about toughing it out on a bad day. You made the right decision, retiring after two stops. It's not your day, and at...

    You are definitely right about that, I just think it's tough when people are hard on the set of horses competing this weekend rather than specifying it's an overall issue! This particular set of...

    To respond to that, keep in mind that several of the teams in front of us are wielding their Olympic team horses or first set of Olympic alternates, whereas we sent over basically the C team. Similar...

    Ha, you would think I would be, but there were definitely a few posts in this thread asking why ML wasn't considered for the team, horsemanship aside, as she provides top results. The problem is, she...

    No one is running CCIs at this point....and if they did, that's a terrible horsemanship decision.

    You only run a CCI at the end of a season, and you prep for it using CICs. There are two main...

    It's not broken up by rider though, so you have to go through it a bit to find specific horses.

    For those who think ML should have been considered for this team based on her 'consistent' results, I beg you take another look at her FEI results. She and RF Demeter haven't finished a four-star...

    For the eventing, it's the total score at the end of the competition that gets dropped. Not done by phase.

    Otherwise we'd get horses specializing in dressage but having stops XC and keeping their...

    For quality combined with price performance, you can't beat the Total Saddle Fit girth. I really like the one I bought for my young horse, purchased because the saddle wants to sit further back on...

    The top, most-promising, potentially internationally winning Le Lion 6 and 7 year olds are generally still not for sale. The U.S. is starting to realize that to have those truly top class...

    Technically, the name his breeder gave him (which I'm assuming is his barn name) is now considered his name, and any change from that would incur the $1000 fee, even if you've shown him under a...

    To some extent though, it's really not for equestrian and eventing/dressage in particular. Sure, the new coach is working with the riders, but this sport to a strong extent is about having the best...

    Actually, Michael Phelps bought him to be a racehorse, and named him Water Cube after the Olympic swimming venue in Beijing. I doubt Phelps had any idea the pedigree would be good for sport. PD has...
