    Yup.

    You hurt no one but the horse in hoarding them. Even if you want to take it out on a jerk seller the best thing you can do for the horse is hand them over. Even if they do nothing with them...

    Having worked at both of the barns on this road this news sickened me. I know *exactly* which turn was the culprit.

    It (the turn) actually appeared in my dreams last night (heard story yesterday),...

    Two different divisions for two different horses. You want the jumper to be sharp and quick, you want the hunter to be indifferent and chill. A lot of hunters need 4+ trips to pull that off, hence...

    Two things come to mind.
    1) Could be a $25K pony because of where it's at, ie: the care, training and quality of riding and showing it is regularly exposed to simply by being in the possession of a...

    I'd also like to see some senior horse & green horse incentive. Rather than split hunter divisions up by rider age, why not split by horse age? It is judged on the horse after all.

    I see a lot of...

    Perhaps it's time to consider splitting the hunters into 2 types: Show Hunter & Working or Performance Hunter... I realize they already stuck that name on a glorified Open Hunter division, but...

    I'd hesitate to say it's a real profitable venture but I'd beg you to give it a try. There are dwindling numbers of videographers on the HJ circuit these days and it is getting harder and harder to...

    I would venture that yes, a winning (in company) 3'3" Jr. Hunter will be more marketable than a mediocre 3'6" horse, and a winning 3'3" horse that can make the step up to 3'6" is icing on the cake. ...

    Whoa Nellie, I wouldn't go over to SHB forum with that post.
    OP, it costs more than $10k to breed and raise a baby that was purpose bred for a successful hunter career. That's why you're not finding...

    There's no breed declaration to show in the hunters, but he is USEF registered as half-arabian.

    I actually don't think I was aware of this, thanks CM. But it begs the question, does length of time really equate to quality or prestige? I mean, why is this a rating requirement?

    So, if someone...

    Argh and I took the bait. Add me to the naughty list.

    Congrats on a great show Lil Nibs; hopefully our happiness for you will not be confused and lost among our ideas about The Way Things Are!

    Emphasis mine.

    This is where I think your argument backfires (and I mean "your" in the general sense, as we've had this discussion numerous times and this logic always comes up)

    This essentially is how James Parker/The Book does it, not exactly as you describe but the concept that they have committed paying clients before ever taking a photo is the same.

    And it's working...

    Correct, but (and I'm talking about seriously established circuits & venues) I'm reasonably confident they could do it without raising office fees.

    And I'd be happy to start by simply not...

    You are already paying the cost with $50 photos, and because of this the show has done a fabulous job of turning the pro photog into the bad guy that charges ridiculous amounts for something that...
