    I have a group of retired horses but I still want the manes to look good. Most don't love to have their manes pulled so I cut them.

    They look really good. It just takes practice...I keep combing...

    Another case of no set rule...there is nothing in the USEF rule book about adding strides in the under 3' divisions...and again your round, with the added stride was likely the best of the...

    In the EQ as Ammy says, it is a different story.

    I think a score of 40-45 is commonly used for a rail or trot, circle or other major error. At least I do...It is hard to say if the score for her round would have been 85 without seeing her trip.

    When I judge, adding a stride to me in the lower height divisions, even at an A show (pre-children, pre- adult, short stirrup, 2/2'3 low hunters etc) does not close the door on a good ribbon, as...

    I believe it was due to the 2013 finals where the Pre-Greens jumped 2 trips on the same day. Many horses to jump twice was mentioned, when splitting it over 2 days would be a better format...

    When watching a few recent videos, I find it interesting, although I LOVE the horse, that he makes a noise...not a big deal in the EQ, just a comment. I had not heard him do so before...

    Some years ago I bought a horse, a 2 yr old that I didn't take home right away due to a barn renovation. That was in the month of March. The farm owner called me a couple of weeks later and said her...

    A proper release allows the horse to "finish" the jump. It is un-restrictive and giving. That low release in the rider's photo being discussed performed by a professional is one thing, but as a...

    For the price, you can't go wrong. I am sure JM can come up with something clever.

    While this rider is doing a good job, in my estimation to win in the big eq, she needs to change her release as recommended.

    Not a big fan of jumping in that sort of a rig. Too constrictive, in ...
