    I would try to find a doctor who understands what's involved in riding (or who understands sports participation in general since athletes in many sports are as hardcore as riders) and get advice from...

    OK - took a look myself and you guys are correct on "Grand Prix" only being used once per FEI, but I would still argue that there's a lot of grey area in the semantics in many cases, and adding to...

    Well, part of the reason we ALL started in the hunters back in the old days was because the jumpers started at 1.10m+ and the hunters started at 3' ish (the lowest hunter classes were 3'3" when I was...

    In response to drawstraws question...

    For several years I was flying cross-country weekly for work, and my ability to be there for the farrier was very hit or miss. I would try to arrange to have...

    This is not true at the big shows.

    Many shows hold multiple Grand Prixes. Several of the shows I went to this year had 2 or 3 Grand Prixes each week. One August show had (all FEI CSI3*) a...

    I'll add to the confusion here. The regional/national/international qualifications only matter in a Grand Prix *called* a "National Standard Grand Prix" (or whichever category it falls into). A horse...

    I'd have to look it up again, but convention is that to be called a "1.60m GP" there simply have to be 2 fences that measure 1.60m. I would assume the same for 1.45m and 1.50m. I don't think there...

    Yep, it just means they've ridden around a grand prix course at least once. It has nothing to do with winning money or job/pro status or anything else.

    With that being said, "Grand Prix" can...

    I have zero issues with my farrier coming early. He's willing to pull out a horse and get started whether I'm there or not (usually the trims or one of the easy horses - he saves the tougher cases...

    Ha ha LookmaNohands! He's not 30, but my 13yo TB likes to celebrate the onset of fall weather by punctuating our rides with plentiful squealing and the occasional buck/bolt. I enjoy the extra energy...

    Thought I'd come back on here and update my horse's hematoma story.

    It's been 5 weeks since I first posted and my guy still has a big lump on his sternum (I brought him home in the first week of...

    Yes, this was exactly my point too. I don't think anyone was saying that you *can't* find good care at a low price point, just that paying $200/month in board is very likely going to come with much...

    The only reason you're supposed to look up while jumping is so that you don't tip your balance forward at the base of a fence (something staring at the fence can lend itself towards). Lots of UL...

    My horse took the idea of "jumping around the fence" a little too literally ;)

    My Bit Butter seems like the same consistency as lip balm....it's much more "solid" than my jar of vaseline. When it's cool out it comes out in kind of solid chunks or flakes and then melts on my...

    I show at the big shows with the very occasional foray to one-day shows.

    My horses know how to tie, and on occasion I tie them to a trailer to tack up. It's a rarity because there isn't a show...

    My disclaimer is that I have no comment about legal responsibility in any way, shape, or form.

    With that out of the way, I don't blame you for being upset, but I feel like this is one of those...

    I bought it almost 10 years ago, so they may not make it anymore? But it was a curved mouthpiece.

    Yep, they're basically buckle-on leather quarter bell boots that then have a secondary piece that cover the back of the shoe and also buckles in the front, so there are two buckles on the front of...

    Do you ride in these and do they stay put?

    I have a pair and I have yet to find a horse that they stay put on. By the end of every ride, at least one of the boots (if not both) are up around my...

    I had a little mare for sale where I ran into the same thing. Multiple interested buyers and not sure what to do (I think I also started a thread on it way back when). All were prepared to pay full...

    Definitely don't try sealtex. I wrapped a gag in sealtex for my TB who suffers (to a lesser degree, it sounds like) from the same thing, and it tore up his mouth badly. It's just too rough for the...
