    I showed my draftX gelding with a roached main for years. I usually did the standard forelock braid. But I think either would be just fine.

    I'm addicted to jean breeches--they wear like iron, I can do barn chores in them with less fear of ruin, and I feel less weird walking around the grocery with them on. The only thing I don't like...

    I'm wondering if she can only track right? (Just kidding--It's a bit weird and a bit cool)

    Valegro was a young horse champion I believe, so was shown at the lower levels.

    Some don't have the temperament to handle showing until they are really trained/rideable. Some have average gaits...

    I trail ride, but don't have a lot nearby unfortunately.

    But I ride my PSG horse in the field every day. I have no ring. It's got slope (a gradual one and a steeper one); it's got one section with...

    www.cblm.org

    I do not quite understand your questions. It is basically run very similarly to the USDF Regional Finals, except each level is broken up into an A and B section based on prior...

    While I realize that many people blame the performance on their horse on wrong bit, wrong saddle, etc. (and I'm not saying Blume is doing this) it is also true that sometimes horses DO have a strong...

    I misinterpreted the saddle pad rule for years. And yes it is not only more stringent than I thought, I've definitely been in violation a time or two.

    I now have a lot of pads I've kept for nice...

    I used to ride in these (joint and swivel) and found they really did help a lot with knee and ankle issues.

    Then I switched to the lightweight composite kind (no joints, no swivel), and found it...

    I credit hill/field work with being the single biggest positive change in my training success in the past year. I moved to a farm with no ring (one has since been put in, however, it sucks and I...

    A couple things since I was apparently not clear (problem when I post from work and hurry). My post was not intended as inflammatory. (I went back and added some stuff within the quote, so there may...

    I know that this thread has taken some twists and turns, but I'll answer the initial issue for myself: "A discussion on why we are OK with 60%"

    I'm not OK with 60%. I'm not even OK with 65%. It's...

    A friend considered leasing out her upper level horse (scores through I1, had all GP moves but not shown, very ammy friendly personality) to the right home when he was also for sale. However, she had...

    [QUOTE=nccatnip;8118792]The only difference is the offending person is quite vested on this board, posting fanciful stories under several screen names which are all fabricated. While there is no...

    Nah, Anne and I have talked about this. It's the real us, and we're the real deal, lol. And yes, I have no idea who you are NAN, but I've never met a more (brutally) truthful person than Anne. And I...

    Nope neither Anne nor I were the OP. I recognized the scenario, since I'd been affected and thought I would chime in. I alerted Anne to the thread and she joined to chime in. Since this is obviously...

    I could not agree more. This is on point. Especially the part about relationships and people. Communication. Grown ups using their words.

    The barn owner/trainer could have had a frank discussion...

    I was going to do a long reply, but ultimately lost my motivation. It could be summed up as "whatever". :D

    For my part, I don't get it, Coanteen. The "house guest" used her real name. She was "tipped off" to the thread by me because I am one of her students. Most people in the Triangle area know who I am,...

    I personally witnessed more than one dressage whip broken over the ass of a horse that was "behind the leg".

    OP,
    I'm glad you've made an appointment. I had similar symptoms and thought it was GERD or maybe even tonsils.

    Turns out it was my thyroid--and it had enlarged enough that it was compressing my...
