    The judging of the young horse classes runs the gamut, and getting certain conservative judges can be fatal. I am not a fan of the YH classes anymore either, Siegi. Here in FL, the qualifiers are so...

    MysticOak, I would bet I can name that judge. But I won't do it in public. :winkgrin: I scribed for one who did the same a number of years ago. By the end of the day, I had very nearly bitten my own...

    I find it a positive to have proof of a correct base. A Bereiter certificate (or above) is useful. However, I have seen trainers with a Bereiter's certificate who were not good young horse trainers....

    Also, if she has enough second level score of 65% or higher, she may not need to do the mpt, but just present the scores via the performance route. I am not sure of the exact score requirements, so...

    Take her soon. If she is working at Second Level that is plenty far enough. The mpt is actually aimed at 3-4 year old mares. Be sure to get enough practice with the jump chute. If you have never done...

    Manni, I believe you are in south Florida? You have a very late foal for our heat. I would keep your foal and mare in and under strong fans during the day (preferably fans that also use water...

    I always like to do baseline xrays on any youngsters that I still have at 2 years. Those are always useful to buyers. I would not bother with an entire PPE, as any buyer is going to repeat it.

    You are right, Viney. Also, ATVs do need gas, but only if you use them. They can be put aside when not being used. They need no steady day in, day out care in the form of food, water, grooming, etc....
