    Put your vest on at the last minute! That's my strategy.

    Don't wear it in warm-up, and take it off as soon as possible when you get off course.

    But most of all, you'll get used to it!

    I have a soft spot for greys, but I must admit that she is nothing to write home about.

    She appears to be very short backed and, like others have said, she is an average mover at best. She has a...

    Just to chime in:

    I have always been taught that white was the most proper thing for dressage. Black and white - that's it. Most of the time, at events, white is the most common color of...

    I'm very intrigued by those Acavallo boots as well. They look difficult to put on, though.

    I've used plain old Davis velcro bell boots on my horse for years and never had a problem. I have used...

    In the past I have pulled all four shoes for the off season but this year I decided to go with just pulling the hinds.

    Thanks for the feedback, everyone! It's interesting to see how people base their move-up decisions differently.

    I know that, at the moment, we're not ready to move up. Provided that I can get...

    Oh, boy. I definitely feel you. I'm pretty much in the exact same situation. Although my parents do occasionally pay for horse-related things, it's mostly on me. I'm in college as well, and money...

    Do you have "landmarks" for moving up?

    Just a general question, and I apologize if this is vague, but I want to hear some opinions from my fellow eventers.

    Do you have "landmarks," so to speak, for moving up? In other words, do you...

    Trace or Full body clip?

    Hello everyone,

    I'm at the point where I cannot stand my guy's long fuzzy bear coat any longer! It is definitely clip time, so I have started debating which route to go.

    Throughout winter, he...

    It could be the rider's abrupt and off-tempo posting, though.
