    Disappointing. Awful live stream, and riders who are cantering around and still having multiple rails. Some of the younger kids are chipping and doing drive bys. Even Charlie Jayne had 2 rails and...

    I agree with Gottagray. The telecast was not just for horsepeople; the goal of the telecast was to introduce Grand Prix jumping to the uninitiated. The average person knows who Bruce Springsteen...

    The ring at MSG was no bigger than this, yet there were wonderful, challenging (but not stupid) courses set there for 100 years.

    I think that Steve totally misunderstood the quality of the horses,...

    Don't know how big the horse is, but Charlie is something like 6'5", so the horse could be 16.3 and Charlie would still look big. :)

    If you want to see horses tied, go to a polo match. At top matches, players use a different pony for every chukker, but even at lower level matches, each player usually has at least 2 ponies which...

    I just looked at the order of go, and the names they have showing are impressive. And all competitive riders; it should be a good class.

    On the schedule, they have the start time as 6:45, but...

    I have never missed an episode either, and this season looks like fun. The last several seasons, though, I was watching from habit, not because I thought they people were interesting.

    So, yes, I...

    Glad I did a search and found this thread.

    I have a couple questions about Keratex: -- I have always used it on the sole (never the frog). A friend says she only uses it on the wall, never on the...

    Depends on where the osselet is. If it is in a joint, I would pass. Another question to ask is "Why osselets"? Conformation problems can exascerbate the problem. What will that conformation fault...

    Over on the WEG thread, iit was determined that she had 4 stops: 3 that were unquestionable and then the one that was open to review (later determined to have been a refusal, also). So, no matter...

    White colors on green background - prelim. (Just in case people thought this was an advanced course).

    I 100% agree. Watching the Jumping at WEG and the American GOld Cup just last weekend, the rider was 80% responsible for the number of rails down. All those horses are incredibly scopey. If they...

    But the OT, noble an idea as it is, does not prevent riders from getting to the finish line early, and then standing right before the timers until the optimum time as been reached. (Are riders told ...

    Easy to say "keep him". And my first thought was the same. But, now I am agreeing with the people who say "sell him".

    Bottom line -- how much do you need the money? Will it pay off loans,...

    Go to FB --- there is a group called Triangle Area Equestrians. If you join (its a public group) and ask the same question there, I bet you get multiple replies.

    My Bad..... It would have helped if I had read the whole thread and noticed that it started 4 years ago.

    I would breed her, but with carefull consideration to the stallion. I would definitely look into more jumper bred horses, as they tend to be uphill Right now there is a thread with a lady who...

    Lots of good names to see there. Plus one that is not seen often, but is wonderful to find: Khaled.

    I am old school, so I hated this course (which seems to be the way all courses are going). The 3rd day is the day to test horses turning and jumping. X/C is the day to have horses really gallop and...

    Really good farriers do not have the time, nor need the money, to be a horse show farrier. So if that is the best that can be said about this farrier, I would not consider it to be a real plus.

    Have the vet send the x-rays off to a major vet clinic (New Bolton or Marion DuPont, etc.). They have official radiologists who have a lot more experience and expertise than a local vet.

    SP is unlike many other areas; there are not many h/j boarding barns, because so many people keep their horses at home.

    The only place I can think of is FoxTrack -- I am pretty sure that they...
