    See the rulebook. Previcox is actually an off label use in horses, there is an equine brand. So check the rulebook and talk with your vet. It's an easy one to solve (you don't need to switch to...

    I think there is a big difference between someone who is normally reliable and does a "no show" and someone who has an established pattern of behavior.

    I can tolerate a fair amount, but I also...

    Have a couple of thoughts on this.

    1. Having an "off breed" horse does not mean you get a low score. I have both fancy WBs and "off breeds", so I know a thing or two about this topic. Ride a...

    MOR has summed it up really well above and OP, I'm right there with you.

    I've shown second level previously on one horse and am showing my AQHA second this summer. I tried it last year and we were...

    It's actually the same in hand. You need to prevent it from happening.
  6. I never say this, but I completely disagree with...

    I never say this, but I completely disagree with Silverbridge!

    IME you don't want to go to war over rearing, you want to prevent it from happening as described above.

    Yes, I sent an email within 10 min of receiving the ride times. I sent a follow up 24 hrs later.

    No one would have had to be notified in this particular case - it would not have impacted anyone...

    I know it's hard for show secretaries but I also think that generally speaking the lack of consideration is very frustrating as a competitor.

    I also scratched a class at my most recent horse show...

    You know, I have to say, I approach these situations completely differently than most folks.

    Start with this: what is my long term goal? If it's to maintain a good longstanding relationship with...

    Take this with a grain of salt, because I am a total chicken and have no desire to ever get on a horse that has a habit of putting people on the ground ... But this concept of having the trot b...

    Did someone really post that exercise isn't for everyone? I'm sorry but that is just ... ridiculous.

    Or maybe your girth is too long?

    Maybe I have been doing this wrong all these years! Because my pad ends just below the flap of the saddle, then you have like 1-2" of billets then to the girth...
  13. Huh - never even considered putting a girth over...

    Huh - never even considered putting a girth over the saddle pad. Seems like your pad would be pretty darned long to allow for that. Or your girth so long that the buckles would end up in a bad spot...
  14. I don't think I ever suggested that your trainer...

    I don't think I ever suggested that your trainer harp on it.

    And I totally agree with you - the thing that I value the most is partnership with my horse. That's what it's all about!
  15. Well I walk both sides on this topic. I would...

    Well I walk both sides on this topic. I would certainly never insult someone about their weight. At the same time, if you are a serious rider, you need to be an athlete. Most serious athletes are...

    Certainly there are times when a student works off a fee or a trainer offers a kindness to someone special, discounts students who commit to a lesson package, etc.

    That's an entirely different...
  17. Some can, some can't. What you are describing...

    Some can, some can't. What you are describing sounds like a very downhill, western pleasure type horse. That is going to be very, very hard to convert to a dressage horse.

    I have a QH that was...

    When I lived in Ann Arbor I rode with Cathy Henderson.

    It was a million years ago (her daughter was a newborn-yikes I'm old), so have no idea where she is located now, but she was wonderful.

    Well I respectfully disagree.

    Treat your clients professionally and respectfully.

    Fractured L4 nearly 30 years ago, also have spondylosis.

    Few things that have helped: PT (and lots of it), working out off the horse, custom saddle with double padding in the seat (Dresch),...

    One time many years ago I realized that my long time trainer charged some clients less per lesson. I will say it offended me very, very deeply. Because at the time I was also a long time student.

    The boys are about 45 min away, I ride them 4-5 days a week, depending on what is going on. I have them lunged and/or trail ridden 1-2 days a week.

    My mare is 2 hrs away, I try to get up there...

    Just wanted to chime in to say that this thread has motivated me - I did a few extra minutes of core workout this morning!!!!

    I completely disagree with this! Winning just means you had fewer issues or were on a nicer horse or whatever. It's entirely possible to win a class on a nice moving horse and still have significant...

    Video is so helpful and so painful at the same time!

    Good for you for taking the input and realizing you need to work on your position (don't we all). I am not sure I agree with your approach to...
