    Here is the pedigree of the sire (OP spelled the name wrong). There is a picture of Medaglia d'Oro there....he is very handsome and a nice type. Seems to pass that on to his offspring.

    Yes he does. And often very attractive horses. Good luck with your new OTTB---and you need to post pictures ;)

    I used to use the field service at NB many years ago (maybe >10) and it was great but when the vet I primarily used went into a local private practice....I followed him. When I did use them, they...

    We have a couple horses who go in them at our barn. Night and day difference for those horses. I think it completely depends on the horse. Some really really like them (FWIW two are OTTBs and one...

    She tired on her gallops up Nelson's hill (decent hill in Unionville that many riders use for galloping).

    If she get's really stuck, let me know and I will go lend a hand. I wasn't planning to go otherwise. Tons of work and crap to do.

    That was my point a bit...Yes...thre are more scores in the 30s in those events...but by the typical riders....who are basically the top in the world. Yup, those will be the people who kick our...

    I you are going to do stats though....you do need both sides. So of those 36 in the UK....how many completed, what were the winning scores, how many were by the same top 10 riders that we see are...

    There are 72 entries...I suspect a couple more will drop out but more than 65 will likely compete. I've only heard of one maybe two that are going just for dressage...maybe 3 if Boyd goes (I hope...

    My view is that she is just 3 (by 2 weeks). And I've had several...all grew and a few by quite a bit at this age but it really wouldn't matter to me if she didn't grow any more. By the video, she...

    [QUOTE=NCRider;7533297]
    I was merely speculating if perhaps having a horse or horses to work on pure dressage with, without worrying about upcoming competitions, would be helpful for our riders to...

    Without thinking too hard...I can think of 5 UL riders who do exactly this and I'm sure that there are others. And I can't think of any who do not work very hard with dressage trainers. Sometimes...

    I've been tested in one year several times as an event rider. I can go for years without being tested and then get tested a few times in row....but from having talked with others...it is clearly...

    I've always like CG. He is unfortunately not right for my TALL mares but if I had a smaller mare, he would be on the list.

    Do you want fresh semen or willing to do frozen? If you are open to...

    true...but not many events OR dressage shows have the atmosphere of Rolex. That is something that for some horses and riders...they really need as much experience in as they can get.

    That is not typical in the eventing world here in the US. It is more typical for the H/J crowd. Like most of the world, we have scheduled times in eventing to be in the ring....regardless of whether...

    Just a nightmare. Only good point is that it could have been even worse. I'm so sorry for your loss--Vinnie looked like a cool horse.

    I was very lucky when I had a bumper pull trailer...

    I was helping my friend this past weekend. She looked green....was asking a ton of questions...Should she do this, or that her, and here and change this. I finally nicely yelled at her...STOP...

    I think of the terrain at Fair Hill as good. Its a nice gallopy course. There is a bit of a hill but it isn't like Plantation Fields or VA HT which are on much more hills. I like the open feel...

    LOL--I almost never walk the course the day before. Never had any issues with the distance at Fair Hill. I like the hack out before jumping---and the free water school. And then it is a nice cool...

    Don't know Reed at all...but have been around a long time. For ANY good rider to become great it takes time and experience. She was absolutely right to change trainers....live in a different part...

    Depending on the free jump chute.....it is VERY typical for them to bring their hind legs down too soon. I rarely every evaluate a horses hind leg mechanics over in a free jump because of this.

    Don't do it. I've towed with smaller vehicles.....it isn't the towing power....but the STOPPING that is scary. The difference in towing with a full size 3/4 ton truck and an SUV is HUGE. Yes,...

    There is always a risk buying youngsters....they tend to hurt themselves....but I've bought several yearlings and now breed some of my own.
