    Yep. Absolutely. After 40 years A system H/J and some pretty serious dressage in there as well, I realized I was completely priced out. Since I don't have acreage and have to board, the costs...

    I turned off the commentary. I also turned it off when jimmy torano was commentating. "I sold that horse, etc". He's a terrible name dropped. I want a commentator to tell me about what's going on...

    I like the idea of the top ribbon winners at the top shows being re-measured as a matter of course.

    And frankly, what's with the permanent card? I've never understood that. It's just a way to...

    I was howling on both of these. She did a great job! Very, very clever.

    Those who are getting their panties in a knot are maybe seeing a bit too much of themselves here? Truth hurts you know!

    I have as well. I had a very nice, but very difficult hunter, and over the years, had a couple of kids on him. He taught them that a very nice horse is not necessarily easy, and the ribbons don't...

    I just logged on to write the same thing.

    So where was the circle of hay bales, the walk-through oxer, the low bank, the barn yard and lane scene? Basically all of the things that better simulate...

    ^This! I had a conversation on the racing forum once, where somebody asked me why the H/J folks had their horses so obese. It just wasn't healthy at all! I had to laugh, because we were all trying...

    I have pulled all the blocks out of any of my saddles over the years. I like the deeper seat and padded flap of the modern saddles, but not the blocks. They're easy enough to pull out.

    As for...

    I remember the Classic when it was at Gold Creek Park. The first one was seating in your car at ringside. I didn't like it at Marymoor. The footing was hard as a rock, and it echoed as the horses...

    WWGD? LOL. So true.

    And thank you! For the comments about tank tops. The H/J barn I rode at for years banned them. No way you EVER rode in a tank top.

    I still can't bring myself to wear...

    Watching a nice hunter peek out of the bridle and hunt down to a big 4' oxer is still one of the things I enjoy most to watch.

    Drugging has been around forever. I'll never forget,...
