    I would say the "meanest" thing that has happened was not a trainer, but a hunter judge, who was placed us well (1st, 2nd) in OF and flat classes. During a break, judge came up gushing about my horse...

    Very sad for all involved. I may be traveling afar at some point and I have thought of this...so much food for thought in this thread.

    Sorry all! Thanks for the correction. My main point was that it just plain HAS to be more dangerous the higher you jump and the faster you are going when you hit the jump. Meaning, that while...

    I will be facing the same issue in Spring, I hope. I have a very nice dressage mare/novice eventer that has had some NQR issues that we "think" we have handled. She would only be leased out for...

    I am admittedly a total ASB fan. 2 crosses of my own. My jumper mare had that "on button" - I would always chuckle a bit as she shuffled into the ring, at a trot that would make the WP people cry,...
