    I thought we were talking about 4 star. 1996 was a 3 star.

    In it's latest incarnation returning Iraq and Afghanistan vets talk about being "in the suck" while fighting in those two countries. One can only imagine how much that must...well...suck. And Mike...

    Wouldn't it be nice if we all had self-congratulatory awards, ribbons, prizes and magazine write ups for suiting up and showing up at our jobs every day, year after year? If I needed the old slap...

    I think it's always a balance between horse, rider and bit. Yanking and pulling on a snaffle trying to control a head flipping runaway train is hardly "soft". If you and your trainer need to upbit,...

    I agree. Fortunately I'm not totally deaf, once I noticed my hearing going to hell I got some hearing aids. People who can't hear and don't get hearing aids (if they can afford them) can be a little...

    I have this issue as well. I've found that informing the judge as I circle usually gets me an extra loud ring. I still look anxiously toward them as I circle, but I think everyone would be more...

    Horrible, a real gut punch. It is indeed a nightmare. Condolences to all.

    I just sold my partner of 6 years, and that was (and is) far more traumatic than I ever realized or imagined it would be. The bond between horse and rider in this sport is probably stronger than any...

    Spot on, as the Brits would say. All the more incredible given Silva's recent head bonk while doing flatwork.

    Yes. And I usually wear very bright clothing so they can find me in the bushes.

    Yep, I would not move up at Flying Cross. One of our favorite shows, exciting and challenging with great people, but Jumpstart is a much better first training.

    Just got back from a couple of weeks in Aiken. Had a blast! Other than that, shoveling snow, working and praying for Spring. I've got everything crossed I can cross for your boy.

    Yes, men are like that ; ). Just caught the thread and the roller coaster ride with your boy. So glad he's doing well and I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

    We've added a third to our home stabled crew, an 8 y/o chestnut TB gelding, 17hh. With one retired on a farm south of the river, we have a total of 4 on the payroll.

    I was wondering the same thing - where are some of these folks? My guess is that some have dedicated more time to Facebook (not me-no Facebook!) or other forums if they have non-horsey hobbies as...

    A three day would be very cool! I just have to give a shout out to the jump judges, ring stewards and volunteers who toughed it out in that crap weather on Saturday. They really deserve medals, to...

    We did see riders coming in way too fast and either hit the fence or barely clear it, very scary, one was at our fence 2, a very straightforward cabin but on a downhill approach. I kept thinking of...

    Hagyard Midsouth training helmetcam.

    Our team rode at 4pm after the rain had stopped, the footing was deep but actually other than the warmup not too bad. It was heavy, tiring going for the beast. I've never studded up as big as I did...

    I agree completely with this. Zero tolerance policies generally translate into zero thinking policies. We may never know how or why these horses were doped, but if the blood levels were minute...
