    Sometimes. The program isn't really the point. Plus there are many folks that do know how to braid/groom/etc and just don't have the down time (because these shows are $$$$ and sometimes, say,...

    So, if I cut my horse's mane, which isn't that thick, am I going to get murdered by a braider later if we actually do something huntery? Because I'm highly considering it, I suck at pulling manes,...

    Lose the stirrups.

    But other than that, make sure your tack is well oiled and conditioned. I like to clean mine with a basic cleaner like castile soap and then use something like Hydrophane...

    LOL!

    I will ALWAYS go out of my way to go somewhere that has a lot of awesome consignments - particularly if prices are reasonable.

    I will almost never go out of my way to go to Dover unless I...

    I was merely pointing out that the jumps in that type of class were what people were referring to as skeery above, and they weren't skeery.

    I realize it won't work for every venue, but there are...

    Too bad you're not from around here, I'd bop him around a 2'6" division for you. You can always look for a horseless and competent ammy that just wants to show a bit more and won't expect payment.

    Oh, I'm sure it happened. I'm just disagreeing with that line of judging. If it's not against the rules, it's not against the rules. 2016 Rulebook says:

    That would be erroneous on the part of the judge to refuse to score if something is legal, and very protest able. You're entitled to a personal preference, but judges need to judge based on the...

    I find it more brown than red. With a pair of appropriately matched breeches and brown boots, it could basically fall under ratcatcher attire, albeit not formal attire. I just have a hard time...

    They really don't have an enormous resale value, although they're great saddles. I have one of the old school ones when the leather was really really good and it's held up for 15 or so years. I'd say...

    We are haul-in clients who get to see our trainer somewhat rarely at this point. We've always been treated as part of the group though, mostly because we sort of make every event into a giant party....
