    Exactly! Which is why the movie was quite disappointing in my opinion. There was so much potential to do something "interesting" as opposed to the *hours* of stuff blowing up. Yes, they - briefly -...

    Oh dear, we have a 'rebel' amongst us... And probably, GM seems to be a stickler for proper turn out! :) Thanks for the laugh French Fry!

    I honestly don't mean to hate on any "old snobby hunters" - but since many here mentioned clothing rules for lessons and schooling at home (and how disrespectful it apparently is to show up at the...

    Wow, you guys certainly have a lot to say about fashion/safety/proper attire. It's been a fascinating (and at times hilarious) thread. Thanks for sharing!
    I think it was Daniel Roche who - in his...

    If the Kiwis do it, why can't this happen in the US?

    It seems to me that the reason one would go to a show - especially schooling shows - where you're judged (be it Dressage, Hunter, etc), is to...

    I can't believe it either but, for the record, I didn't mean this as "I don't like how you look" (if you want to rock the "lima beans or corn?" look, all the more power to you!) - perhaps more, I'll...

    Oh, and just in case some of you are equally "nerdy", little ol' (bookworm) me found this interesting study (a little old perhaps and mostly about cycling, but interesting research questions...

    Well, this link is about a National Team so they sort of have to wear the team uniform, don't they?
    My initial question was actually more about what you wear at home to school or for lessons (not...

    Wow, thank you all for sharing! And bringing to my attention that I am potentially being "disrepectful" to my trainer by showing up for my jumping lessons in a bun (& no wispy hair) and a navy pad......

    Oh, not at all! I am really surprised all the comments I see on here or on Eventing Nation about a "certain look" which has, in my opinion, nothing to do with looking tidy and safe (or rather, yes...
  11. Please explain this whole American *fascination* with hairnets and white saddle pads?

    I am confused (admittedly, it usually doesn't take much to confuse me... ahem) but I can't seem to understand the whole "hairnet...

    Thank you all!


    Well, I am about 4 hours from "everything" (Twin Cities, Madison, Des Moines) - so anything in that triangle really. :)


    Great idea! It would be perfect for exposure! And I...

    Well his Dad was a pro-rider... And he trained a lot with Jean D'Orgeix who was also a little "unconventional" in his approach.
    He is certainly not "classical" in the pretty US Hunter way and yes,...
  14. Winter schooling shows in the IA/MN/WI area?

    Hi guys,
    So, the new "baby pony" is almost ready to go "out in public" and discover the big scary world outside of the Amish country.
    Any recommendations for hunter/jumper schooling shows in the...

    Great idea for a thread! I love hearing about people's first horses as well!
    And ps, OP, the horses on the pictures are adorable!

    I have to say this is an addictive thread. Probably the whole "misery loves company" thing... And you guys are way more motivated/brave than I am. Riding, outside, in -20 windchill? Wow...

    Oh I loved that show when it was on ITV last year! Sexy vicar with a past - and a black lab... ;)
    But I have to say the vicar's landlady was the best!

    Oh, I wish... ;) I am an academic (with a PhD), so unfortunately not a career field where one makes tons of money. I still do ok to support my horses but my main "problem" is that I am in a primarily...

    Adult WS position: Would you do it?

    Say you are in your 30s, too far away from trainers for regular lessons but would still like to get better with your horse (in my case either in eventerland or in jumperland). You happen to be lucky...
