    Joe Fargis is in Middleburg. It is a hike, but I think we can all agree he is experienced in all the ways specified by the original poster.

    Don't mess with the shoes. Cow hocked can be good for power and unless you are buying him as a conformation hunter I wouldn't worry about it. Corrective shoeing can create additional problems by...

    I did a clinic with her 2 (3?) years ago and enjoyed most of it - the fences in the advanced group were maybe 2' so your level will not be a problem height-wise.

    What I did not like about that...

    Agree that more money attracts, but for me, with a horse who never went higher than 3'6", I might now be tempted to send him in the reg conf division at 3'9" with a pro. It would be too much to ask...

    They are La Mundial. I have a pair from them, but confess I so dread breaking them in that I have not opened the box since they came last summer. I have some friends who bought paddock boots from...

    In your comments you mentioned a few as being too short at 2 or 2.5 hours. Given that your daughter is 7, this may be a full plate even though it is not a full day. Barns are not comfy places to...

    I did a clinic with him in here in VA about 6 years ago and thought he was awesome. A very positive clinician with some good and challenging ideas. I am jealous!

    We haven't had a need for that surgery among our horses, but second the recommendation for Dr. Sullins. He has done some tricky surgeries for us and we've had great results. And the facilities at...

    I don't know about the $$ angle, but in VA there is a small hunter division at the rated shows (not all, but many shows have it) and some really nice horses show in that division (Me and Julio comes...

    So sorry you're having such a tough time of it. I was truly miserable when I had the flu, and because of being pregnant couldn't take much to make me feel better. I thought dying might be a good...

    I'll join in! I'm due April 20 with a boy - my first and likely, given that I am 42 now, only one. We are so excited!

    The per year $ on horse shows is way off. Normally you can do a local one-day show for about $150, but any one AA show will set you back $200 on the stall, add $50 for fees and then one division at...

    The DJ (Deep Jump) is...

    Do you use only a half pad, without a full sized pad (like a square one) underneath it? I too thought I had loose legs that were creating rub marks on my horse, until I went to Gulfport to show in...
