    If it was at a recognized event and the placing will be attached to your horses USEA record, having a 1st there would be nice if you're ever going to sell the horse. That being said, 2nd is still...

    Difficult Run?

    I just was glancing through the scores from Difficult Run on 8/21-22, and was wondering for anyone that rode there what was going on? 15 eliminations and 7 rider falls. And tons of jump penalties....

    Schooling show...the person calling the test for the rider before me decided to stick around at B and watch my ride. Hot day, so she is using her program as a fan to cool herself. My horse was...

    Another question...has anyone noticed that the sizes have changed? I've worn a size 8.5 in Ariats for the last 15 years, and went to try some on to check out the new models and the 8.5s are too big...

    I love my barn :) Here are some of the points that stand out to me:

    -large group turnout paddocks (5-10 horses each separated G/M), each with large run-ins (big enough for all the horses to be in...

    Question (and I am honestly interested, not trying to poke), are you always there when your horses are vaccinated, or when the vet is pulling a coggins? If my horse had an injury, I would be there...

    I didn't mean to imply that the barn should provide flyspray, but each horse usually has a bottle on the door so that they can be sprayed before going out. If I was paying inexpensive board for an...

    Oh I told her a lot of things after that, including that I was giving my 30 days notice! I have a laundry list of examples of expenses that would similarly get your heads shaking!

    Ugh, I HATE the nickel and diming! (Although I realize that it is needed for some things and particularly for some boarders!) At my last facility, the problem was that the prices weren't clearly...

    Honestly, from that location I would look in Montgomery County, MD. It will probably take you a lot less time than VA (I have done both, and my horse has settled in MD because of the commute!) You...

    You pretty much got it. You are required to go through it, but stops don't count against you (not sure if they've thought it through enough to determine falls, but I would assume as any fall you...

    The roll in the front can help with placement so that the pad doesn't slide back. I think the rolls in the back are just for looks, but could also keep the pad from shifting under your saddle I...

    Wow, look at those dressage scores for the Open Prelim division! I would be so disheartened if a 30 only landed me in 8th after dressage! But congrats to all the riders, well done!

    I can imagine the water and ditch caused a lot of issues. I think it would have been more fair (especially at elementary level), for both of those to be mandatory elements but not judged (Loch moy...

    I agree that it was a great event! All phases had huge warm up areas. The two dressage arenas were on grass but FLAT and well mowed. They had little flower pots at all the letters which was a nice...

    Interesting...while I realize it's a bit untraditional, I'm surprised that the judge would cause such a fuss. The only real difference in appearance is the zipper instead of buttons. Pikeur has...

    I second the Ovation Ultra DX breeches. They're great in hot or cold weather, have super comfy fabric that holds everything in a bit ;), and wear really well. I like them almost as much as my...

    One more version of a circling scenario. If the jump is set in a manner that I can canter around and pass parallel to it, say on my right side, then circle left and approach it straight on to jump...

    One point to consider...if jackets were waived more often, I bet manufacturers would begin to make sleek looking short sleeve collared shirts to wear in the show ring. The dressage community has...
