This question is for a tack class i'm taking, sorry I don't have pictures. We were told to research a certain type of cantle we saw and name what type it was and it' purpose by next...
this pretty much sums it up
all this streaming is killing my laptop, it's too old for this :no:
Anyone ever notice that the people in the media who are calling this an "elitist" sport make more money than god? Why is it the celebrities are picking on people by calling them elitist when they...
LOL. I agree
Yikes, man I really feel for Canada at the games, bad luck to nearly everyone :( luckily we're in a sport that people and horses can compete in for years and get another chance.
oo, he looks like fun, haha. I just saw Matrix today, and I don't know, there's something about this one I like (other than the accident that happened the day before).
I agree with everything you said. I'm down for a discussion about this. That being said, I retract my previous statement on not re-watching the last segment of dressage.. anyone know where I can...
Now. #1 Just because someone is a judge and has experience is just like saying *certain* presidents or politicians clearly must be in the right and always be correct because they are who...
Honestly I couldn't give you very specific examples as I don't remember most of the horses or riders names, but from what I saw it was nearly 50/50 with extended trots that just didn't look right....
Flexible of course, love him.
I agree, this is inspiring, I'm 31 and don't let it out often that this is a dream because I'm still a beginner and I think I might be too old to start! But still, it gives one hope :)
I'm having the same problem. Thinking I might watch the replay so I have something to do tomorrow, haha:no:
yes i've eaten tons of chocolate covered espresso beans today... I apologize for posting like a fiend.. BUT... Is anyone else excited for show jumping? Can't wait to see how Flexible does :eek:
I agree, this bothers me about saddle seat too (among other things that bother me about this discipline)
I'm becoming more and more fond of the british teams (how awesome were nicola and zara in xc?) as the games continue :)
... have I posted on too many topics tonight??
I'd have to pick Fuego, because he's hot stuff and he knows it, haha.
THAT BABY! :mad:
this competition could do with some good commentary.
But uhm... since when does an extended trot look like a park trot from a saddleseat class? And shouldn't their hind end be able to keep up with the front?
ps..yup, just watched the...
This is f**ing fantastic.. bumping it back up!
or us 31 year olds who have the motivation and want to work hard to get there but don't have horses/can't find good trainers/cant afford to eat and get lessons. well we might be screwed right? All...
compared to some other articles, like the telegraph UK and the Time mag articles.. not to mention the craziness from Steve Colbert.. this one really isn't that bad.
I agree :yes: I think we placed very well, no one got hurt and for crying out loud we at least MADE it to the olympics and placed very well against the best in the WORLD.
But, I don't think it's...
I hear things from super conservatives about how awful it is and they want to socialize it and blah blah. But really how much worse can it be than where I already am? I think people just like to...
wow! thanks for all the replies! Seems like everyone really loves Oregon ;) I think I may be leaning a little more toward Lex because it's a bit more affordable (at least it seems that way so far)....
