    Can you pm me who you called? I'm curious about whether I qualified. Agreed about Zone 3. I grew up showing in Zone where zone finals were super competitive and fun. Here they are kind of a let...

    I would suggest looking at qualifying cutoffs from last year (and this year) and determine how many shows you really need to go to or how many points you need per show. That way you can maximize your...

    James River Hunt Horse Show Photos

    Does anyone know if there was a photographer other than Kimmy Risser? I've checked her site a few times and nothing is up.

    Thanks!

    I would not make the trip for the BEST shows. The bigger classes (anything 3' and over) rarely fill (or have 2 or 3 people) and the courses are nothing like you would see at a rated show. Very few...

    Agree 100%. This is what I do. Some shows even throw a TB classic in. It's always nice to be able to win a little something back. And when the show has the TB's on one day, there is no need for a...

    I would! Culpeper has grand prixs each week of the series I believe and Upperville's grand prix is always nice.

    Clonshire Equestrian Centre

    I'm not sure if they run the program in January or February but Clonshire in Ireland is fabulous. My friend and I went about 6 years ago and spent a very intense week riding. I would love to go back...

    The zippers on those boots are fragile so I would be very careful getting them stretched. Mine were so tight that my calves throbbed and my feet fell asleep when I first got them. I wore them around...

    I practice patent law and love it. I work about 50-60 hours a week (unless a big project comes up) and am able to afford my horse and ride 4-5 times a week.

    I buy skinny jeans at Forever 21 for $10.80 and use them as riding pants. I have the low rise version but it may be worth looking for regular rise there. Not sure if they have them. I have had mine...

    A couple of comments, not all directed to the quote.

    1) Yes, some people are paying for the judge's opinion. Does the judge like my horse's way of going? Or my equitation? Of course it is...

    I think the time to move from 3' to 3'6 has now been shortened because of the opportunity to do 3'3 divisions (low A/Os, pre-greens, performance hunters). Before, the jump between 3' and 3'6 was...

    I think having the right horse makes a huge difference. I used to be a pretty timid rider as a result of a few bad falls as a teenager. My current horse may not be fancy but she will jump anything....

    I use two reins. Always. Though I see a lot of lower level jumpers on one rein, always on a lower ring. I would probably consider a converter or another bit before going to one rein.

    I like to think that my knee-gripping was saved me from many a bad spot. It's pretty much by go to position (much to my trainer's chagrin). And the benefit is that the kick-ass inner thigh muscles...

    If you're looking for an economical choice, the equine coutoure soft-shell coat is nice. I love the amino but this cheap substitute looks nice and is still tailored.

    I actually learned to ride many years ago from Debbie and rode with Kelley a lot when we were both young. I highly recommend both of them.
