    In general in jump-offs, it's whoever does less strides that wins. People who run like bats out of hell at the jump usually blow the next turn and end up going wide.

    Honestly, it can be anything. Could be hocks or back. I also think that if you have been working a barefoot horse harder (to make him lose weight), he could easily be footsore, or more sensitive to...

    I would wear what you're most comfortable in, since the days are long.

    For me that means good running shoes, pants or shorts that don't show too much dirt, a nice t-shirt, polo or long-sleeved sun...

    It really varies. I know people who have done it for a lot less than what is quoted.

    I think a tent stall is about $3500-$4000 for the circuit, and I know people who have done half (so 6 weeks)...

    I agree with Mac123.

    A crank can be used alone or (more often) with a flash. It tends to add more control because it doesn't loosen as you ride whereas a figure 8 often does (as the horse crosses his jaw etc). For a...

    In Wellington you have to ride at 1.60m against 100 horses in a $34,000 class. In most Grand Prixs around the country you jump against 25 or 30 horses at 1.45m to 1.50m for more money than that.

  17. Interesting Rodrigo interview: on WEF, Brazil, state of the sport etc.

    Worth a read I think. I appreciate his candor and willingness to discuss some of the problems in the sport. And his commentary on WEF is spot on, in my opinion.

    Thoughts?
