    Totally agree! At the base of the jump think 'BUTT BACK!' Picture yourself pushing your hiney toward your horse's tail. (Of course you're not actually going to do that, but the imagery will help...

    Try thinking about the one-two, one-two tempo you need. Then think of a song that matches that tempo.

    For horse shows, I need a bit more pace than at home. For my now retired hunter, i needed a...

    Thanks for the info. You learn something new every day.

    I read that, but I did not take that to mean that a groom can never give an IV injection.


    My reading is that section 1 says you can't inject within 12 hours, with three exceptions. Then section...

    That is just brutal. I would rather trot through a ring of fire.

    Not sure about USEF. I just perused the rulebook online and can't find anything regarding administration of IV by a vet only. I meant 'legal' in the law sense, not in the USEF sense.

    It's ok for experienced grooms to give injections for several reasons:
    a - it's not illegal...see article here: ...

    Yes, there are bad people doing bad things. And I'm sure there is more use of drugs like Ace than there was in the past. But I take exception to a couple of points in your post...

    I just don't...

    Ok, then no other conclusion except she's a fruit loop.

    (Yes, I, too, love fruit loops - except they are actually called Froot Loops.)

    In general, I'm in agreement that the trainer is a complete whack-a-doodle, but there is one thing I find a tiny bit odd.

    At a presumably large facility (assuming so since there are four trainers)...

    I think that's why you're having such a strong reaction. As an outsider, seeing what you saw, I might be horrified as well. But, had you been an insider, which context and background to that...

    Can't you just picture Sheldon on BBT saying it? Bazinga. :)

    Got it! Thanks! I prefer the paper copy and have ignored the emails. Perhaps this gave me the nudge I needed to get more comfy with the e-version.

    Excellent points raised in the commentary.

    I've been saving this for myself, but since it doesn't look like I'll be getting a mare anytime soon, and I'm partial to S line Hanoverians, I'll throw it out there.

    Can we see that video of the show? I think that's where you'll find your answer.

    I've never heard this before. Can you, or someone else, elaborate and enlighten me? Thanks!

    There's nothing 'wrong' with them. But they're all pics of jumpers. The discussion is specifically about hunters.

    It's not fair to compare a photograph of a jumper to a photograph of a hunter...

    I think that's the whole point of the discussion. Today's pros are capable of riding in whatever form or style they choose. They choose the current style for a reason. It seems to produce winning...

    17 responses - and still no one has answered the OPs question.

    Yes, I know it's been discussed at length, but is there a simple explanation for why many riders choose this style?
