  1. Transparency in breed associations? And more....

    I have been a member of my breed organization for a long while. I am seriously interested in how different breed organizations actually function. Do you find them to be transparent? Do you find that...

    Thanks so much for your reply, CA. I found it hard to believe that someone didn't know about this guy, if he had caused enough pain to require censure.

    I am deeply sorry for the loss of those...

    I do not know if you can wash the blankets with detergent, and have them stay proofed. I generally wash mine in water, only, and just do an extra rinse if they are nasty- and it seems to work. I...

    I'm guessing not that many folks have tried it. I've done Nikwax, and all of the other stuff, and this beats them all, hands down. Kept my blankets proofed all last winter, without one fail. And it...

    I think it is wonderful that there is some due diligence, in an effort to try and protect the horses, but I was wondering if anyone can share more about this story....TIA!

    The highest end dressage barns in this area, with training, are on par with the higher end ASB show barns in KY. And, you do not see travel trailers at L'ville. Just sayin'. Not with the competitors,...

    With the WCHS, you aren't allowing for what it costs for the owner to be there, golf cart, entires, and all. As far as Academy goes, you aren't paying board for a horse the rest of the time, so...

    No idea what prices are in your area, but in this area- which is HUGE for hunters/jumpers, as well as dressage, your numbers would be way high for the entry level experience I described.

    I think at the entry level- just started out- the disciplines are comparable. It is when you get to the mid range- where you start taking a trainer to the show with you- that it gets expensive. You...

    PSA- Rustoelum Neverwet is FABULOUS!!

    Every year, someone comes out and asks the question, "how do I waterproof my blankets...reliably?" Well, I tried this stuff last year, and it worked a treat. So, I am back at it, re-proofing a stack...

    To be fair, the trainers are simply trying to make a living. However, the reality is that at any show, if you are showing in the ASB world, and you want to put someone in the ring in a regular...

    Having had both ASB show horses, as well as owning and riding some lovely FEI horses, my first comment is that there is some fabulous information available on this thread.

    What a horrendous situation for that filly. And, no, I do not condone anything about that kind of obfuscation. I also got hold of horses who looked far worse when I received them than they had on the...
