    I go to Rolex every year and I will tell you - there are SO many dogs there - sometimes I wonder if it IS a dog show too! Seriously - if you are the type of person who likes to take your dog places...

    I worked with one rolex rider at a clinic - my horse was at his worse that weekend I will say though - he was too out of shape to be there and he gave me attitude to tell me. But she said she did...

    This discussion is why I love dressage and if I explain this to some people, they call me a dressage queen. lol

    So many people are taught what the 'correct' diagonal is but not why we tend to ...

    All my horses are barefoot and I have been showing and transitioning horses to barefoot for many years now. I also was a barefoot trimmer at one point. I know enough not to say I know everything! ...

    I apologize if I am repeating anything - I scanned through most of the posts to see if my thoughts were expressed and I did not really see if it was. Mine are contributory to all the others to give...

    Sounds like you have quality answers on here already. SOUNDS TO ME that she is almost back to being 100% when you say its one out of 20 jumps.

    I do want to stand up for your horse though -...

    It is sobering when someone gets hurt because we know that we CAN prepare and ride well and have all 'our butterflies aligned" per Wofford - and STILL be toeing the line of risk. It could be any of...

    I said I HOPE it is. I make no apologies for hoping the report is wrong.

    Sorry that you misunderstood what I said.

    I would sell. That way you can put your whole heart into the first one and not feel bad neglecting the other. That way the other horse has a chance at his potential which though the horse doesn't...

    Surely always an opening to debate which is always welcome as long as it is constructive. Although sometimes it could just be coincidence that reminds us that this is a sport with high risk. Most...

    rabicon: I agree with the 1 for canter right lead if you are on the left lead - 1 is actually a gift.

    But not sure I would agree with a 1 for 'canter circle right 20m' because you literally DID...

    I was thinking that - what are people here talking about with 2nd and 3rd level to answer your question? If you are solid first level and working second than you SHOULD SHOW FIRST LEVEL at...

    If it says left lead canter, you should get a 0. But if it says canter left 20m, I think you should get a 2. You did not demonstrate a left lead canter. But you did canter to the left on a canter....

    I agree with much of the above.

    1. Work on the canter - collect it - get the horse to be light in front and uphill in the canter so she can come up to the fence in a balanced, light canter so she...
