    Fingers crossed that Canada sneaks into the top 6 tomorrow. If they do, it will take a lot of pressure off the US at the Pan Ams, as Canada is usually our biggest competition at the Pan Ams. I know...

    That's great. I have an ancient computer (2006) & trying to watch the replay of this morning's dressage was an exercise in frustration. Watching live on my ipad has been great.

    In the freestyle, I thought Parzival put in a better test than Valegro. I wasn't the only one who thought this, and I think the scores were close. Normally I like Valegro better, but in that...

    Read it, really enjoyed it. Especially since I was there watching at some of the big shows she includes in the book (eg Devon when she rode Idocus, Las Vegas World Cup) it was fun to hear some of the...

    Frank Sinatra didn't prefer Orville Redenbacher. I can't for the life of me remember what that stands for, but I remembered that a former student said that to her on the subway or something & she...

    The article said there would be small & medium tours for amateurs. Congrats on Devon- have fun!

    It might be a way to get people to do the medium tour- no one did the old int-II at CDIs.

    I have a fly sheet quarter sheet & it makes all the difference to my horse- without it, he gets mauled by bugs on the trail & is miserable, with it the bugs hardly bother him & he's a happy camper....

    Carlsbad, even south Carlsbad, is quite a schlep from Del Mar. Particularly during commute times or during the summer during the races or fair at Del Mar. If you are in south Carlsbad or La Costa,...

    Is there a coupon code for Horseloverz, or is the discount already reflected in the price?

    Tredsteps have very skinny ankles, even in the wider calf sizes. I had to go to a calf that was way too big to have barely enough room for my ankles to bend.

    I can think of 3 events in 3 different areas that used to have cross country fairly far away. In Area VI, Pebble Beach's XC course was about a 40 minute hack, trotting with some walking (and waiting...

    I bought a reddish girth on ebay & tried to darken it with olive oil. No change. So I got Fiebing's brown leather dye from Amazon. I used several coats. There's still a reddish undertone but...

    They were at the same barn. Same owner owns both horses, and Kevin McNab is or was Jock Paget's mentor. Even though they ride for different countries.

    I do like the PRI pads, especially considering the price, but for durability I love the Back on Track saddle pads. They are more expensive but are really well made. I don't find the saddle pads as...

    The pikeur softshell coats are fantastic. I have the Ghia. Not only is it great in hot weather (only slightly hotter than wearing a polo shirt), it's also wind and water resistant. I've ridden in...

    Second this. It fits all your criteria- no sheepskin disc, mono crown, fancy stitching (including on the reins). I love mine. My horse has a small face & lots of bridles are overpowering on him, but...

    Years ago there was a show series I went to that gave out glass tumblers with the show's logo etched on them for first place in each class. It made me want to collect a set (which I did!), so it...

    I think it varies geographically how common they are. I've seen them more in CA than other parts of the country. I also remember when only a few shows charged an "office fee." Now it seems like all...

    Dotneko, maybe you or another judge (or experienced scribe) can answer this:

    I've always thought "loss of rhythm" was a bit of a dressage judge code word. Especially when I was a teenager, I...

    Hawley Bennett has been show jumping in quite a light blue coat recently. Sky blue, maybe? Definitely lighter than royal blue or French blue.
