  1. I could be wrong, but for some four star horses,...

    I could be wrong, but for some four star horses, modern SJ height is a true test of their scope. Adding in XC the day before makes it truly difficult for them. A scopier horse may have an easier...

    Before you get out of bed, put your feet in the air, flex your ankles and stretch your toes as wide as you can and wiggle them around. Do this for 30 seconds before you get out of bed. It helps...

    Getting rid of the coefficient doesn't go far enough because a 75% vs. a 65% in dressage would still cover a rail and good bit of time.

    A 65% is a very good score in dressage for a horse with...

    It all starts with the dressage (and to a lesser extent, the SJ). I'll post the same thing I always post when this comes up. If you want to make riders focus on the xc, if you want good safe xc...

    Come on. Now you're being dramatic. Basic rules of common courtesy for visiting anyone apply to visiting people with new children. 1-Don't show up unannounced. 2-Don't overstay your welcome....

    You can probably blame people like ScaryMommy for the fact that your friends have dropped off the planet. There's a lot of self-indulgent entitled nonsense out there about expectations for friends...

    I'm not sure you're getting the best advice for buyers. The advice you are getting in this thread is more like a wish list by sellers. Of course they'd prefer buyers who are going to show up and...

    Particularly disappointed with Jessie Phoenix who looks great in her helmet, has one or more small child(ren?) and I'm almost positive I've seen her in a helmet at at least a few CCI's in the past. ...

    I don't know. History shows SH's reaction to being disappointed in a meeting is pretty kick ass. Here's hoping history repeats itself and she comes home with some hardwear around her neck.

    There are a lot of options out there so hopefully the less experienced riders or slower horses take it easy. There was a young American first time rider at Rolex a couple of years ago on a pretty...

    You want to save your drop score for a xc refusal or elimination. If you have a team rider with a high dressage score, you're stuck hoping that nothing goes wrong on xc for anyone else because you...

    Probably a little bit of both. They all want to be on the team because it's an honor and a huge recognition of your accomplishments and the coach's faith in you and your horse. That said, riding as...

    Kim Severson's team had a sock monkey they used to carry around and take pictures of at various events.

    I can't believe we're talking about this.

    I will agree that most of the horses in that link above have their ears back and not pinned. In fact some of them even have their ears forward. I understand the difference. :lol: What I am saying...

    Actually, many experienced dressage people agreed to disagree about Matine and her swishing/wringing tail.


    Anyway, are you saying that maybe it is a QH thing?

    OK maybe, but cow horses are staring down an animal and the pinned ears are part of the communication between the horse and the cow.

    Other than the breed involved, on it's face there doesn't...

    But why reining horses only? More of them than not look like that the entire test. There's the odd horse in the other disciplines that look like that and people generally take that to mean they're...

    Your friend is insane and being very unfair to IW. She's brought a green mare to WEG and scored over 80%. A silver medal at this point in that mare's career would be an astounding accomplishment. ...
