    I disagree. Some horses recover, and usually only with long-term, consistent CORRECT training rather than just as function of "time" itself. Not all do, and highly sensitive horses will take a LONG...

    I think this also applies more to work at the upper levels - not all horses (as I understand it) can take the pressure of the more difficult work, such as that needed for the FEI levels.

    Do you mean AHHA (American Holsteiner Horse Association)? AHA is the Arabian horse registry.

    If the foal is a filly, I don't believe COP fillies are eligible for approval for breeding, at least...

    I don't really understand the significance of these findings. The outcomes of the surgical cases are being compared to those of the controls (TBs who have shown no signs of OCD). Why is this useful...

    Can you elaborate on this? I know next to nothing about WP so I'm having a hard time understanding this comment. From my ignorance as an outsider (eventing/dressage), it looks like WP would be one of...

    This article suggests not weaning prior to 4 months: based on swine and bovine research, early weaning can have a detrimental effect on immune function.

    I am having trouble locating the article, JB, but I will try to dig it up.

    Upon closer examination of the actual article referenced earlier (regarding physical differences between foals weaned at...

    Perhaps there was a good reason, but why would someone ever wean a foal at 3 months??

    It's not the emotional issues I'd be concerned about as much as the physical ones - the article VirginiaBred...

    I've had one for over a decade. Well made saddle, typical Stubben, though: provides very little support. I like mine as I am used to it, but there's not much supporting you in the tack. I'm quite a...

    This is not meant as a criticism, Kyzteke, as I have much respect for your knowledge and opinions. However, I find it interesting that you place so much importance on breeding to proven stallions,...

    I spoke to Sara (owner of Connaisseur) earlier in the year; he is only going to be offered by frozen for now due to his focus on competing. :( Too bad, I would definitely be breeding to him if he was...

    Yes, Bent Hickory, I agree that these situations are probably far more common than most people realize.

    I agree, although situations like these do not always have sinister explanations. In January, I was given an 8 year old (registered) Anglo-Trakehner mare by Asher. The mare had been bred by the...

    No, I had no idea what the cost would be. That is partly on me, of course, since I should have discussed it with the coach beforehand. Just goes to show how important it is to have these things...

    Have ridden with a BN coach who charges $1000 a day, divided among students, for away shows ($500/day for travel days with no coaching). I believe coach's day fee is $500/day (divided among students)...

    Is the behaviour more extreme when you ask for something like a particular canter lead, as you make reference to in your original post? That would be a big red flag for me in terms of being an...

    I think we are generally on the same page. I agree that chipping/hesitating is not okay all/most of the time. It is not acceptable if this is the horse's default reaction at take-off (which it seems...

    I disagree. To chip and hesitate is SOMETIMES incorrect. But sometimes it is safe; I would not feel comfortable riding a horse at the upper levels that didn't have the capacity (on rare occasions,...

    I agree that the trend in course design has moved away from courses that favour the TB. TBs can jump seemingly insurmountable obstacles, like some of the fences at Aintree, but they jump from speed...

    How do the USEF rankings work? I ask because I know that often big breeders end up topping the lists. This is, of course, because they produce quality horses. However, it must also ultimately be...

    Sorry mckulley1, I missed your statement that you intend to have the mare approved with the foal at her side. Good idea (although this underscores the need, as I'm sure you know, to pick a stallion...
