    I am not 100% certain, but I'm pretty sure that the guidelines have been available on the USEA website for at least several years, at least since the frangible pin piece was added. Albeit not very...

    I'll give another vote for Kelley Williams. I just took my 5 year old OTTB down to her for a month while I'm recovering from minor surgery. I watched her first ride before having to head back home,...

    Interesting discussion.

    To me, this is proof -- as someone else mentioned -- of the technical creep that has been occurring over the years and that the new rule is intended to take care of (at...

    It is not clear yet if the "optional" aspect is for course designers (they don't have to include higher jumps) or for riders. The way I read it it's is NOT for riders.

    I'm with Asterix... we went the surgery route immediately. This is a young TB with high potential and was insured, so it was really the only decision for us. As our vet said "if this was a...

    Thanks, spacehorse!

    He's not stabilized enough to send home yet, they are still considering the surgical route. I also board, so until we can go down to meds every 6 hours (and not the current...

    Emphasis added.

    What if I'm stabled off grounds, and I school my horse off grounds between phases of a multi-day competition and fall off? What if I go...
