As for "German" vs. "American" style--there is little to choose at the top levels--Germans have become more American and Americans have become more German. It's more a question of personal styles,...
Like most riders do at her age, she's evolving, maturing physically, and basically leaving the nest--even placing distance between it and herself. Does that mean her mom isn't entitled to watch her...
Even more amazing….
Just getting around to reading this way too long thread today...
This one really takes the cake so far. IOW, alias protected COTH posters can regard Reed's business as public property and...
Competition requires a certain mind-set in addition to the skill required at whatever level of riding.
These two aren't ready.
Leave them home.
It depends on what you mean by ZERO.
Zero as in:
Has never been ridden?
Spare me the paranoia.
If you are that scared of the 'gum'mint' tracking your horses, don't bother recording them and definitely don't try to compete them.
Just keep them home, hope they like...
If those videos are old, the OP has moved on to a new trainer, and the OP STILL has the concerns listed in the OP's OP, then my points have been validated.
You can sped a LOT of time trying to...
Watched your videos.
It's very hard to develop an eye for distances when your horse is continually dropping out of the canter to trot his lead changes. And your horse can't do lead changes…does...
This horse does not care one iota if he goes to a show.
Just know that whatever it is you are doing to get him there, it's not for him, it's for you.
There are other horses out there that can...
Management can't be blamed for acting to decrease their exposure to liability in this division. There are plenty of other opportunities for elder riders with sufficient time, talent, and horsepower...
Anyone have a link to a roster with teams/countries?
If this poor horse isn't dead yet, it must be close.
The ROUND was barely 2 minutes. The judges that judged it got to see it only once.
Someone, get a shovel.
I would let the insurance company know that the X-ray vet merely took a referral X-ray and did not evaluate the horse for lameness (since you did stop that process in its tracks). Express your...
Mystery stallion caught my eye here...
Quixotic, you are right about USEF. What's to be done?
Disappointed you didn't get something for nothing, huh?
You think you are entitled to a refund because you feel you were ripped off because you paid for what you got (admission to the horse show)...
Well then. You have no clue why or how top riders choose their saddles. At least we've cleared that up.
What kind of saddle do YOU ride in? How did YOU choose it?
Rider in the video is very loose in the tack. Bound to be a factor and grounds for resentment (if not soreness).
Agree that additional flatwork (preferably without stirrups) is indicated.
You can only 'improve' them so much. Sounds from the description like either the horse doesn't need to or can't use himself better.
Takes an experienced eye to tell the...
Rules are for sport.
They call it contract law for a reason.
Do you have a coach? What does your coach say?
Walk out a distance and get a stopwatch. Time yourself. Compare it to the recommended rate that CD's use when computing time allowed. (In the...
1) End the lease
2) Get aggressive about finding a new trainer
LOL wait till the howling stars in earnest about the microchips! 'UNENFORCEABLE' they will scream.
They aren't worried about the new horses coming over. They're worried about the ones that are...
