    It is truly sad how often horses are blocked to show. This would not by any means be a unique situation. Or limited to naive owners who don't know it's happening (though that is not unusual either)....

    Wow. Just wow.

    As an aside, Supershorty, when you are a paying client with no pros in the family or professional courtesy discounts, and you are campaigning a hunter, even doing things on the...

    I am so sorry for all those who have been wronged by this and other unscrupulous horse people. It was actually Krallen's unfortunate story that prompted me to post. This is a good illustration of...

    I think a lot of folks on this board would be awfully surprised to actually see the methods used by many of the celebrated "BNTs."

    I think that is absolutely a plausible situation. Locally (not FL) we have had more than one barn with Strangles just continue going to horse shows. And you'd better believe there are barns in...

    Honestly, if you had ever seen this woman in action, you wouldn't need to ask that question. In addition, I remember one weekend when there was an A show at AM. We pulled in and there was ONE other...
