    I was howling on both of these. She did a great job! Very, very clever.

    Those who are getting their panties in a knot are maybe seeing a bit too much of themselves here? Truth hurts you know!

    I have as well. I had a very nice, but very difficult hunter, and over the years, had a couple of kids on him. He taught them that a very nice horse is not necessarily easy, and the ribbons don't...

    I did. I was H/J as a junior, then dressage. Then as an amateur went back to H/J Did that for 30 more years! However, I had a jumper that had been a prelim event horse. He was terrific. I took...

    I just logged on to write the same thing.

    So where was the circle of hay bales, the walk-through oxer, the low bank, the barn yard and lane scene? Basically all of the things that better simulate...

    ^This! I had a conversation on the racing forum once, where somebody asked me why the H/J folks had their horses so obese. It just wasn't healthy at all! I had to laugh, because we were all trying...

    I have pulled all the blocks out of any of my saddles over the years. I like the deeper seat and padded flap of the modern saddles, but not the blocks. They're easy enough to pull out.

    As for...

    I remember the Classic when it was at Gold Creek Park. The first one was seating in your car at ringside. I didn't like it at Marymoor. The footing was hard as a rock, and it echoed as the horses...

    Having ridden with a double bridle both when I was riding dressage, and now, while riding Saddleseat, I'm finding that I really love them. As stated above, the finesse is wonderful. The turning...

    WWGD? LOL. So true.

    And thank you! For the comments about tank tops. The H/J barn I rode at for years banned them. No way you EVER rode in a tank top.

    I still can't bring myself to wear...

    Love this. So true. My H/J trainer was exactly the same way, and added a broad brimmed straw hat in the summer. Always looked professional, and ready to step aboard a horse in the need arose. She...

    This.

    Watching a nice hunter peek out of the bridle and hunt down to a big 4' oxer is still one of the things I enjoy most to watch.

    Drugging has been around forever. I'll never forget,...

    Agreed. Whether it's effective or not is beside the point. The rule book is very clear that NOTHING IS TO BE GIVEN TO A HORSE THAT WILL AFFECT ITS PERFORMANCE. It does NOT say that it's fine to...

    I would suggest that you have your vision checked. Whether you wear glasses or not, vision changes begin to occur when you hit your 40s.
