    Tried those unfortunately :(. Smaller circle doesn't work - he sends his hind feet flying my way or just bids his time until the circle gets a bit bigger. It still hasn't provided a "breaking away...

    What level of "excessive" is the difference between a warning and a yellow card? The video of the end of this rider's XC round made me feel very sorry for the horse and based on what I could see the...

    Yes! But I think he lives in the UK, though, so that might be where the confusion is coming from. Here's his Wikipedia page - double gold in 1992 and a medal in 2000. ...

    I do have the high, low and average dressage for every national level event and class (BN-Adv) in the US and the UK from 2012. It was part of a project I was doing to see if stats could be used as...

    As an American living in the UK I gotta say I don't think this is something the US has a monopoly on. :eek: The number of poorly trained horses in the UK is vast too. But I guess the other side to...

    I don't know if any of these are the one YB has but here are 5 naked riding calendars from the UK. Naked calendars for charity are clearly all the rage! :) Though my initial thought was that it...

    I wouldn't be surprised if this isn't all further complicated by lack of record keeping to avoid tax payments. At a certain point the sale of a horse is taxable for businesses above a certain...

    I'm pretty sure they will. I'm in the UK now and I've never had a problem. I use Supastuds and have never heard them talk about US v EU sizes. If for some reason they don't your farrier could...
