  1. 2'6" Jumper, sound. 17yo TB Mare. Oklahoma.

    Due to financial situation, I am posting this for a friend who needs to rehome this mare by the end of this month. She is in full work and sound (hasn't needed injections yet, but probably could...

    Nope, not a word yet :) Try live-stream for better luck :)

    I'm looking forward to the speed challenge and the dressage event!

    I sort of take the Innocent until there is actual evidence and a track record before I condone people. So while I don't love those photos, I can't justify passing judgement on this person I know...

    The Dutch and French riders all rode for the lap of honor, but the US only had one rider. I know Kent's horse was a tense coming in, but the other three stood in the middle of the arena like they do...

    I completely understand how you think that would work and its a great thought, but the eventing community cannot support it.

    At the upper levels, FEI support is very important (even if we don't...

    I agree with the first part of your post about specialist instructors, but I'd like to point out that the FEI won't allow us to add more four stars or even three stars just because we want them....

    Your recovery time will be determined by how your xrays looks, but it would be reasonable to expect to be out of the saddle (serious riding) for 3 months. If your pelvic fracture turns out to not be...

    The drop score rider still places the same as the team regardless of the cause of the drop score, even elimination or retirement.

    Completely agree. Part of me is hopeful Canada qualifies at pan ams, so they can send a team. The US will still very likely have a team, but it will be determined by placing at FEI events which may...

    Andrew Nicholson, I believe, was the one that said it was the 'worst going/footing he'd ever seen.' That is likely the number once reason. Even on great footing, challenging, hilly, and long courses...

    I don't think the injuries and withdrawals are really different from the past. The internet just makes it accessible. I also don't see withdrawals as a bad thing. Better than pushing through for the...

    Hmmm, I don't consider a 12 year old a "young" GP horse. Not retirement age, but certainly older than 9 or 10 when he and many other GP horses begin competing at international championships. I could...

    It doesn't have to be the styrofoam (by Dow) brand, because not every where carriers it. It needs to be extruded polystyrene, which comes in blue, pink, and green (that I've used).

    This is the...

    Afraid to show open? I am an ammy who often requests to show open (doesn't always work since Ammy is plastered all over my cards page), and I regularly receive higher scores. Particularly in the...

    Your horse is so lame it refuses to trot, correct? Where does the lameness block to? It sounds like you have not tried injecting steroids in the injectable areas within the blocked region, right? Out...

    I think it's a bit of a leap to suggest the horse retired because he eats west coast alfalfa 4 times a day and the owner doesn't like him being switched to local grass at random by strangers.

    My...

    Talk to them this morning. Lovely people, just concerned something happened to the horse's owner. We still shouldn't feed stranger's horses, but I feel our situation is well resolved and the horse is...

    Meup, they were told on the phone call, in a very clear way, "thank you for your concern, but please don't feed him." They then did it anyways. Sorry for not putting the direct quote on COTH. I agree...

    2tempe's math is correct (as is yours for a smaller pony). According to the formula, an 8.95x8.95 stall required for a 10.3 hand pony.

    That said, I agree an 8x8 is fine for a temp stall.

    It sounds like you have it resolved, but for anyone's future reference, 2" blue insulation board from Home Depot/ lowes, duct taped to the bottom of the foot can make all the difference. They aren't...
  21. Show neighbors keeping feeding and watering my horse, after I asked them not to.

    I get to my horses' stalls at noon to feed lunch. One is eating a completely different hay and has full water. Ok, I assume a groom made a mistake, no biggie. Then at 4, the people call me and ask if...

    I've been searching for a "professional groom" or junior out on break that may want a week long job in Gladstone, but I've not been able to find anyone available the first week of June (before...

    It is salt from the sweat.
    They do sweat out salt.
    They loose a fair amount of salt when sweating.

    Same thing happens when sweaty nosed horses drink from their water buckets and then they get...

    What are your goals? He looks like he could be a consistent 60-65% at 2nd level with that rider. The right rider could probably get their bronze on him. He's going to be limited more by his movement...
