    IMO:

    Before we can answer this or many of the other questions ... First we must figure out "what is eventing, in this modern age"? Not 50 or 60 years ago - TODAY, as it is now.

    Eventing has...

    You have to forgive yourself for what happened at the very bad schooling. IMO that's kind of drilled into your head that, as a pair, you and your horse are both over your heads when you face anything...

    OP, quite going back & forth posting about the overwork thing ... it's a dead point and you owe those posters nothing. :) It's distracting you from the real issue, and it's a time-waster for you....

    This is a struggle when a rider wants to go one direction, and the horse, another. In the end will either of you truly be happy together? Or will you spend the next decade slightly disappointing each...

    It was an extremely technical decision that the second pass through Discovery Valley wasn't a fall. It was a fall In Real Life, just not at Burghley 2014 FEI rules.

    Just me, but if my horse's...

    I just saw Aoife Clark's yellow card round at Burghley 2014 (yep still watching those free videos http://www.burghley.tv/vod2014/ ), and I found it somewhat disturbing. Maybe I just don't know enough...

    I am so, so sorry you are going through this decision. But this is a natural passage and in the end -whenever that is - he'll be free of WORRY, having lived a great life. That's the greatest gift we...

    p.s. If there is one thing I've learned about horses, if someone is marginal about being able to purchase or pay board for one, DON'T help them get ownership. There is little that can sink a...

    Amen to this.

    Give her a date to be out of Oct. 15th (30 days from now), in a formal letter, email AND text.

    If she is not out by said date, you begin legal proceedings to take ownership of...

    That's right. 1.5% of a small number is a small number. Meaning, not the score * 1.5%, but the difference between the dressage scores of the top 3, 5, 10 ... whatever group has less than a rail or...

    The unachievable OT seems to be an occasional characteristics of the highest of the Upper Levels, at the present time.

    It may have been more prevalent at the LL's at one time, but I think the...

    I think the remark that this is hard for a first-time seller is probably right on. I am happy that the OP does care so much where her horse will end up.

    It's easy to see what other people should...

    Back in ??? I think 2006-2008 (or was it earlier?) when DOC was Pres of the USEF and launched a serious study of speed in eventing, collecting actual data from actual events, the wide gap in average...

    That won't make any difference to what I'm pointing out. The XC scores are STILL zero. Coefficient or no coefficient. All the coefficient is doing is opening up the distance between competitors very...

    When I saw the title, before reading, I thought "doesn't have a contract". And, sure enough ...

    Owner said the key words: "all I can afford". That is another way of saying "I can't afford a...

    OP, my heart goes out to you, and I understand why you're upset when you don't think everyone paid attention to the details of your situation.

    I advise not letting anything in this thread add even...
  17. Scoring when no one makes the time on XC: discuss

    I'm sure this is not news to those more immersed in 4*'s than self ... but anyway ...

    Burghley 2014 results brought home to me what it means - really - when no one will make the time on XC, by...

    EXACTLY THIS ^^^^^^^^^^^

    OP, don't call "lookers" by the term "buyers" until they ask for a vet check and are talking about a firm price. You are confusing yourself out of a sale.

    Does the BO have some sort of business/liability insurance for the boarding operation? Is there any chance it would cover all or part of the horse's medical expenses? You'll have to ask, doesn't...

    Exactly.

    If everyone were the same in their behavior and expectations, all these contracts and signatures and papers wouldn't be so important. Unfortunately, they're not.
