    What someone else paid for one medal horse is almost irrelevant. They aren't necessarily direct comps to each other. One may have soundness issues that affect resale. One may be cold backed. One may...

    I think because you are asking third parties, who may not know, rumors get started etc. etc. I'm betting that a lot of juniors don't know how much their horses are bought and sold for.

    Oh, feeding the troll.

    Nobody can teach confidence. Tell me how one teaches confidence? Kissing your riders ass does not teach confidence, nor does screaming at them. Confidence comes through...

    Hat Covers. They just don't work over the new approved helmets - they look weird. Buy a velvet hat or a dark colored plastic helmet. Also, practice putting your hair up. I wear a hairnet every ride -...

    IMO, the girl was not second guessing her trainer or trying something different to get the job done, she froze up. I can pretty much imagine what happened - 5 strides out from the water, her brain...

    Didn't Chelsea have issues with the bank as well? It seems like she is pretty inexperienced over the natural obstacles - I guess something to work on this summer for her. I'm suprised the big eq...
