    I don't think anyone is advocating for these types of questions.

    Eponacowgirl, I show mostly in eastern area VIII. Mainly do mini/unrecognized so far, but they are held at venues that do recognized as well.

    subk, so it sounds like the general consensus, or...

    Does anyone know where we can look for updates on meeting place for the course walk with Jimmy Wofford?

    After reading the last few posts maybe my idea of variety and challenge is vastly different than what some of you are seeing in your areas.

    Things I would like to see on some courses:

    small...

    I don't see what the issue is with variety.

    Some courses are easier, some are harder. It is in the omnibus and most organizers seem happy to discuss their courses, and you can always ask other...

    I think thats a great idea. I think it would be a good thing to include riders who compete unrecognized, etc. But yes, people who are at that level.

    You make a lot of assumptions here. I am one of those riders. I have a blown out back and RA. I may do Novice someday. Maybe. My horse is honest, but not the easiest ride. I love things that are more...

    I don't think it's necessarily that they don't want to go to higher fences to reduce risk.

    It may be that they are just comfortable at that height, or their horse is, and they like further...

    As an aside, I tried the Pipers and most low rise breeches work okay for me. They did not. I sent them back. They were super low.

    I have a bunch of Kerrits. The Kombi's are my absolute favorites. I also have the Flex Tights and Flex Tight IIs. And the Sit Tight Supreme in white/black for shows.

    Love Kerrits.
  12. I dunno, I think variety is the spice of life....

    I dunno, I think variety is the spice of life. Obviously course design needs to remain within set parameters. I don't mind more complex questions at lower jump heights.

    I also don't want eventing...

    If you've used up all the mileage in the horse, sorry I DO think it's your responsibility.

    If it's a horse that can go on and have a useful life with someone else, I have no problem with selling...

    Second what many people have said with the deeper heels. If you suspect he's distracted/spooky that day SIT until you feel confident he's back to normal. Grab strap may help, but like I've told...

    I took a lesson with a friend/instructor last year because my regular coach was out of town. She has a very analytical eye and pinpointed my problem, which was that my knee was getting too straight...

    So very sorry to Will Coleman and all who loved Con Air. Totally devastating. I can't imagine how I would feel to lose a horse so unexpectedly and tragically. Same for Powderhound and his people - I...

    Just as an addendum to my post before - I didn't mean to sound snarky. I was trying to point out that it sounds like he is fairly stoic. So this was probably building up for quite a while until he...

    Well, it took months for him to get so uncomfortable that he acted up. Sounds like with the teeth, feet and back and potentially hock issues he was pretty physically screwed up. It's too bad it...

    You look fine on new horse. You look tiny on old horse. Both are beautiful. One is presented better in the photos.

    Bottom line, you don't like him. Sell him to someone who will love him. I think...

    Had Electrobraid for 9 years and it's been great. It has broken when a horse has run into it. Had a few mishaps over the years and nothing major has happened - a few rope burns that didn't even break...

    I had (sometimes still have) the EXACT same issues.

    The answer is strength. You have to feel strong enough that you can land still in a folded 2 point. If you don't feel strong enough to do that,...

    If repetition makes her anticipate, go for quality not quantity.

    Also, if she jigs when you pick your reins back up after a break, instead of going back to trot work or something, work on...

    Actually you DID quote me. Post #109.

    You lied about me advocating using "killing machines" as babysitters, which I certainly never did. I don't think any dog should be used as a baby sitter.
