    My two cents...

    At 3 days, it's a marathon, not a sprint - pace yourself accordingly and take care to eat right and give yourself as much opportunity to get a good night's sleep before every test...

    Srsly? Recommended by whom - boot manufacturers?

    Color me a tightwad, but at $200 (or even worse, $500) a pop, I expect a boot to last a couple of years even if I wear them every day. Perhaps...

    Not just hocks but coffins joints - looks about right to me. It's a lot of money to me, too, but having my horse be comfortable in his work makes it worth it.

    I think part of it is that the horse world is very small, and folks don't necessarily want to create the "wrong" impression. Of course it's crazy, but some folks would rather just not make waves,...

    In fact, I'd _prefer_ to do my own grooming at shows, but when I go with my barn and we have professional grooms doing most of the horses, I find that my attempt to do my own causes more trouble than...

    A lot of the jumper courses are set "logically" - there's a flow to them. Many have lines that are color-coded, too. And there are always the numbers at the bottom of the fences... Do plan to get...

    Maybe it goes without saying, but she should make sure she's got insurance, a business license, and the appropriate signs posted and liability waivers for people to sign. You can get away without...

    "Charging the jumps" is not necessarily excited (as in happy to jump). It can be an evasion as well.

    How is he at home? Does he seem happy jumping? It might be that jumping fences at a show...

    To answer your question, yes, it is possible to change ones' posture through exercise and stretching.

    There are a lot of different ways to go about it - I've done years of physical therapy...

    I've never heard of that - sounds like an inordinate amount of control is being sought.

    While I agree with mvp that those terms are likely in reaction to some prior bad experiences the BO has had,...

    I am - not by choice, but it seems to be something deep-seated. I'm happy to work with other folks' horses, of course, and appreciate all of them, but when I own more than one myself, I feel pulled...

    Count me on the "it's not necessarily a gift grab" bus, and (especially if you're not attending) you don't owe the couple a gift. But do RSVP so they won't be wondering if you're coming.

    I had a little of the same thoughts when I got my new CWD - it puts me in a more forward position than my old saddle (which was more like a Devoucoux). Where I was riding more behind the motion -...

    My new CWD felt really weird the first few times I rode in it, too. It did help a *lot* to condition and then roll the heck out of the flaps. It had been a while since I'd ridden in as forward a...

    Perhaps not, but an oxer going away *uphill* might be a hard first fence as the first course of a division early in the year. For...

    What documentation is there? Was there a signed lease agreement of any kind? Does the horse have papers that the owner retained?

    Without either of those, it's going to be difficult if the...
