    For most of the European breeds stallion licensing and the 100 day test starts at 3 years old - not just under saddle but also jumping.

    That said, some horses may need more time, some are fine...

    When was just starting (and had no seat) and was telling my coach I thought my mare's nose needed to be 'in' she said:

    'I think she will do best going forward. Work on forward first'

    My info is also from PA - the easements can be a way to protect the land from development. I do not believe they have any effect on Eminent Domain (such as seizure of land for expansion of a...
  6. Poll: sometimes

    I had to really think about this because sometimes I really do enjoy picking up the ribbons (especially Blue or Red) but most often I am interested in the score sheets. However, as I am in the middle...
  7. re: Pine Creek

    Hello MKEvent, I sent you a PM re: Pine Creek. My mares have been very happy there for several years.
  8. feed more, small, meals

    My mares are at the other end of the spectrum, but in barns where I have boarded the hard keepers did best with extra feedings. A couple of different horses I knew just wouldn't finish enough in...
  9. get more evaluation first

    I would suggest a chiropractic evaluation and likely treatment session as well as your massage work. AT fifteen, doing a different kind of work, your horse may need some work on back & neck to bring...
  10. neighbors and town regs

    I second LexinVA in that you need a lot of research on the town, what else is there, the zoning ,and the specific site. I have 4 versions of zoning codes from different towns and these are all towns...
  11. plant bushes

    I had a problem with trucks running up on my bank to make a turn into the opposite driveway - I put in rugosa roses and it stopped. I do trim them yearly to keep the line of sight open for the...

    He's fine and he's mine

    I agree with the folks who suggest no longer replying to her. Even though I enjoy hearing about horses in new careers, etc. it is at the new owners' discretion if they want to share.

  13. yes, you can

    Hello Ecstatic Lady, I think that you can 'do' dressage on your horse as you have already identified your issue of your concern to 'ask' her to do something.

    I like Alto's suggestion to have...

    take a 'snapshot' of your horses now, before move, and after

    If I was moving horses to a different climate I would have a full blood panel drawn for each of them before the move in June and then periodically (quarterly?) during the first year they are there. ...

    I agree with Weatherford, and this would cover the situations described of Lyme's, allergies, etc.

    However, the USEF needs more enforcement tools and spines to use them. As in, mandatory...

    generally, yes, I understand the comments

    I think the judges and scribes do a good job and try to be descriptive within the time constraints.

    Sometimes the scores are different than expected, e.g. two rides, one felt better, trainer...
  19. Thanks for asking, here is my list

    As an AA in an area with many dressage shows/learning opportunities here is what I would like:

    A regional championship each year (GAIG or BLM) in NJ/PA or Morven Park. (this is region 1)

    why doesn't the rider have her own horse?

    greenapples, I am sorry your trainer is persisting after you said 'no'.

    The question I would ask is why doesn't this beginner rider buy or lease her own horse? She will progress more quickly...

    What I liked about CHS blogs was the discussion of the future, what to do, how to get there, with some specific examples.

    I missed that with the AG article. And that is more my issue with AG, ...

    $5 for the book of tests

    you can order the 'national' test book (intro - fourth level) and it's about $5, then you have it for the 4 years until they change the tests. Not only can you review the tests yourself, you can...
