    I don't think 45 is OLDER! Holy moly, 70 is older, 45 is right in the middle. I'm 50 now, and still riding. I admit, I'm stiffer and less strong then I was at 35, and MUCH less interested in...
  2. I am one who has mentioned there seems to be a...

    I am one who has mentioned there seems to be a high incidence of neuro issues in WBs. I actually heard it from a UC Davis vet - they noted they are seeing more and more of them (and really over the...
  3. NO KIDDING! I don't use ThinLine, I like the KL...

    NO KIDDING! I don't use ThinLine, I like the KL Select Pebble Grips, but otherwise, I have grumbled the same thing a million times! I guess for brown bridles, it makes more sense since there are a...
  4. I agree! I have some really nice tack, and there...

    I agree! I have some really nice tack, and there is a huge difference in the good stuff. My ADT bridle is just beautiful, and carefully cared for! There is a lot of really nice tack out there -...

    I have had two, and both were really... CHEAP. One broke the first time I put it on - the cheap plastic buckle just broke off. Their customer service is non-existent. In fact, I think the vendor...

    Exvet - the difference is your schoolmaster is 15, and everyone wants an 8 year old horse! I totally hear you - I have a few friends who have gotten very nice schoolmasters (WBs!) that were 15 to...

    I love the historical perspective of the SRS, but if you look at that video with an open eye, you see very closed throatlatches (which is also a symptom of the "stacked" head and neck BNDT comments...
  8. Yeah, in my first post (I think first page), I...

    Yeah, in my first post (I think first page), I pointed that out - one big reason so many breeders are "dropping out". You can find a 15 year old horse that needs some maintenance that meets those...
  9. Totally agree we need more riders who can start...

    Totally agree we need more riders who can start young horses - for the typical small breeder (very few breeders will have enough youngsters to house a full time rider), it is not just the cost of...
  10. Wow, did you see, one horse was 3rd place and...

    Wow, did you see, one horse was 3rd place and 12th place! And 6th place and 1st place. Interesting... The views can be quite different from different places in the arena, but still. THAT...

    This forum has always been a bit contentious on the topic of WB v Sport Horse. It has never been named the "Warmblood Breeding Forum", it has always been the "Sport Horse Breeding Forum". I have...

    Weekend emergency visit is about $200 - so probably around $350. I also keep banamine on hand... Hope your colic resolved itself!
  13. I find it interesting that it is "OK" for you to...

    I find it interesting that it is "OK" for you to be so "forthright (DY's term)", but you are offended when I respond to your comments in a forthright way? Here are a few comments where you put down...

    I'd add, a big attraction to some of the other horses is less reaction - WBs are now bred to be SO sensitive, which is great for the talented rider. But for the "average" rider, that sensitivity...

    There are a lot of Friesians who have made it to the FEI levels (especially when you consider the relative rarity of the breed). And quite a few Arab crosses, Tbreds, etc.

    The thing is - most...

    I have clipped far into the spring and had not issues with the coat growing in. Of course, when it first starts growing, it looks funny, the guard hairs come in faster, but that is ANY time of the...

    Draft crosses CAN be purpose bred as sport horses? As can many other breeds and crosses?

    I do not consider Friesians to be draft horses btw (Truecolors, I totally agree w/ your posts EXCEPT for...

    I know several Warmbloods that had huge bucking issues in the canter (and some that just buck because they can) - I wouldn't condemn an entire type of horse based on that. That is my point - ONE...

    Manni, you seem to have your mind set against anything that isn't a Warmblood. And that may be hurting your marketing of your horse. I see a LOT of WBs selling - for good prices. Foals are hard to...

    If these are stalls for foaling out mares, the small boxes are going to be useless. You really need a lot of space for a mare to foal - and for a mare AND foal to share space in a closed in stall.

  22. Gypsies and Drums are not my thing, but I know...

    Gypsies and Drums are not my thing, but I know people who ride them, and it is very doubtful you'll find a Warmblood that is as laid back and easy... it is true most of these horses are not going...

    Yeah, I'd second this and add... Most US riders want a horse that is solid 1st level, schooling 2nd level, with show experience for under $25k. Oh, and preferably fancy mover (not international...

    Like any horse that has done nothing for so long - take it slowly and don't expect topline to reappear quickly. If you have access to a eurocizer, put the horse on that every day. I personally...

    I didn't own a horse while going through college - no money, no time. My parents weren't going to pay the bill, and I could no longer work enough to pay for horse bills AND college bills. So I went...
