    Supernatural- it's so nice to see someone say what needs to be said. You and I could go to political correctness prison together :) :) :)

    If you can do a consistent, good auto release, why not?? You'll smoke everyone else doing the crest release. Hit your distances and leads, you should be the eq winner if your overall position is...

    OP- just like the " little black dress", the classics never go out of style. Yes, there have been trends I can remember since I was a kid( a very long time ago) but you can't go wrong, schooling show...

    I feel really bad for the child that lost her last shot at Finals, and that can never be given back to her. But, the kicker for me to this whole thing is- check in 1 month, 3 months, 6 months. There...

    OP- don't give up!!! Training a horse the right way is never wrong. Keep on your basics- running like a bat out of hades around a course is NOT being a "jumper". And a 2'6" course isn't your life...

    Stupid indeed, but that's why they employed a "trainer", to their obvious horror. The fault lies with the trainer.

    I'm totally with BAC. Bottom line, root problem- trainers are supposed to be the guide for these owners/ students, not fleecing them (Note the word "supposed"). I don't care what the vet said or did,...

    This. I can't think of ANY ribbon worth stealing. For me, the best part is the anticipation, hoping someone saw your round to be as good as it felt. Once they call out my number- it's over :)

    "You might want to ask somebody who shows there or call and ask what the Hunter riders wear."

    This. Good luck with the venue change :)

    There was an article By George Morris that I used to keep posted on my fridge for all the whiney students/ riders to see. The article was titled something like "What does it take to get to the top in...

    As the kids say, "True dat". There are few and far between people I could give a hoot what they say. I don't know what criteria your daughter used to hold this trainer in such high regard, but the...

    Why was this trainer so rude to you and speak to you in this fashion? This is why I LOVE the current system of "trainers". You don't breathe without a trainer. The owner was happy with you, you and...
