    I wish y'all could have seen his flatwork in person. He. Was. Phenomenal. I haven't seen flatwork that good in a national final in 30 years. He was Conrad-and-Katie good. Just totally in a different...

    You know what? As long as I'm widely known to be an anti-drugging, anti-draw reins, anti-trainer-prep-at-Finals asshole, I'm fine with that designation, so thank you. I'm also a very up-front...

    Only time I ever had to do the 4 a.m. thing, I *hand-walked* mine in, full tack but with lunge line/stud chain for safety. Had a friend meet me in Scary Corner with an entire bagful of cookies. Led...

    Thanks everyone for all your hard work!

    I posted some late-night schooling video here (not much and I apologize for quality - I left my better phone at the ASB sale in Shelbyville earlier today)....

    With respect, the "animated walk", a two-beat gait that you or I would call a jog, IS a required gait in the performance divisions. Pleasure horses only are expected to do a flat, 4-beat walk. This...

    It's really obvious to me that those of you who are complaining the show is underattended have neither been here, nor shown here. You are making snap judgments based on what you see on the live feed...

    I've got to be honest, if the ASBs were not there, I probably would not drive 7 hours to spectate. For me it's the combination of the two that makes the NHS worth it as a destination vacation. I...

    Believe it or not Renae, that's actually fairly reasonable for an "A" H/J show! I'd have expected it to be more, TBH. So yes, H/J stalls are always more expensive.

    Just a quick note from the show grounds. It's a blast!!! Wish y'all could be here. They treat everybody, exhibitors, connections and spectators alike, like absolute royalty. This is so far off...

    Delurking momentarily to agree completely. The 3 I had to go thru were Caccamise, Dukes, and Levy. Absolutely NOT Michael Hughes and certainly not as high as 6th. :confused:
