    No kidding. And yet WEF and HITS just cannot figure it out.

    Eric had a little slip with Zigali, which slowed him down. There was a gasp from the audience but he continued on OK. He posted a nice time despite that! Yann's JO was blisteringly fast with one...

    Absolutely adore the blog, please don't stop or hold back because of one negative review. Each one of your entries is like a beautiful gift to unwrap and I enjoy reading them SO much and living...

    I'm going with the "outside assistance is pretty normal" crowd. My previous trainer did it, but very quietly and really only when she could see there was trouble brewing or occurring. I think all of...

    Delgrange customer service outranks any saddle maker I've run across. If you are buying new, for that reason alone they are worth ample consideration. This goes from local rep level to the...

    Same logic applies for the current Maclay Regionals. If Lillie has a bad day, she doesn't go to the Finals. This nearly happened to a friend of mine who has had top placings in the national medals....

    Help! My boots keep getting moldy

    No matter what I do with them, my boots keep getting moldy! It doesn't seem to matter where I keep them at home or in the barn. Nothing else gets moldy, just the boots! It's driving me crazy. I've...
  8. Um.... because no way am I going to slap down...

    Um.... because no way am I going to slap down $1-2k on a PPE if I don't even know I'll buy the horse.

    If you're referring to an exam from the vet stating that the horse is sound and his heart is...

    For every horse I've purchased in the past five or six years, I've had them all on trial first. Buying a horse is a huge financial and emotional commitment, and I'm often dumping more money into...

    The SmartPak Alexus are very low rise. I also own the Ariat Pro Circuit Low Rise and the Alexus breeches are a much, much lower rise.

    That said, if they are cut like the Pipers, I don't know what...

    Working the WEF season

    Thinking about it, but I think I need some more information on what, exactly, your average groom does down there before committing to months of perpetual horse show.

    It would be for a...

    If the horse goes the way I want it to go, looks good doing it, is reasonably attractive, is the right size, has a great mind, I get along with it, and it ticks all the boxes, breed is one of the...

    How long did it take to ship and arrive to you? I've been looking at this breastplate, but I'm having trouble justifying the cost on the ones you buy here.

    As an amateur, the show record is a significant factor in my decision making. Since I'm not interested in something green and unproven, I need to see that the horse is getting around the ring,...

    That's a significantly different situation from the one the OP is describing. Having had 20+ years of continuous experience riding on the flat, you are in a much better position to do well with a...

    All of this.

    I get where you're coming from, OP, but realize that 25 years is quite a chunk of time off and you will probably be pretty rusty. Things that seemed easy in the past will suddenly...

    I transitioned from the hunters to the jumpers last year and was more than ready for it. It is fun, there's slightly less pressure to find the perfect eight spots and make it all absolutely perfect,...

    I'd be annoyed, but would do what findeight said. Give them X days (7 days, 10 days, 5 days - whatever) to arrange a PPE and/or payment and inform them you will be there at 5:00PM on the evening of...

    Based on a casual calculation of people riding at my barn, I think the average person probably falls off around twice a year.

    Most of the falls I've seen have been fluke things - horses...

    Needless to say, it totally depends on you and your personality. Some people are perfectly happy to ride all year long without seeing anyone and some need or want to have someone to talk to at all...

    As MVP suggested, it's not *just* about you and your horses.
    Not only is there potential for your horse itself to spread the virus, there is potential for you, your trailer, your equipment, your...

    jse - seriously??
    EHV-1 breaks out in one of the most horsey-populated areas of FL, a place where horses come from all over the US and Canada. The quarantine is, essentially, ineffective with...

    Just to let you know, Equifit released a new version of the T-boots very recently (like within the past week or two). They are called Equifit D-Teq, and apparently have some supa-fancy new...

    I just got one of the Asmar soft shell coats. It is extremely nice and a perfect off the rack fit - far surpasses the fit of my $600 Grand Prix softshell coat.

    Agreed.

    This board is almost backward-elitist toward the Thoroughbred. Yeah, I get it, TBs can be great, TBs get incentive programs, TBs need homes because they failed at the track, TBs aren't...
