    It's even worse if the rider has previously left a number in there, and ends up with residue inside the pinny holder. When I've jump judged, quite few people have gone past me that were nearly...

    You'd think. Except at one show I did that last year, after I said "Good afternoon, #123" as I went past, I hear the judge reply "Technically it's still morning." :eek: (My ride time was 11:55 or...

    Yep, usually at the schooling shows I attend, the eventing tests are offered, and all scored as one class, as USEA TOC. I've often seen groupings of tests that don't have a large number of entries...

    This. If you're experienced, you can go it alone. It's not always easy, but I do it a lot, and it's a happy day if I have a horse-knowledgeable friend along. If you haven't showed before, I would...

    Appsolute, I agree. My mare has recently started jumping in a pelham, after years in the same bit she flatted in (French link). It's wonderful for her, because I can mostly ride off the snaffle...

    Frankly, I think a lot of it is that the other disciplines have written attire standards--coat and shirt colors, pad colors, permitted bits and spurs and equipment--whereas much of hunter attire and...

    That whole thing about "late" clipping messing with the spring coat is an old wives' tale. I pretty regularly clip right as spring shed is starting, and have never had any problems; I'll do it again...

    I have the Smartpak leathers on my dressage saddle, and have been really happy with how they've held up. They're not as buttery-soft as my Bevals, but with conditioning, they broke in nicely, and...

    A few people I know have used tension shower rods for this purpose. Much more cost effective, and work well. When the day comes that I upgrade to something with a dressing room, that's the first...

    I think perhaps a blanket ban on some things is still appropriate. Looking at the Forbidden Substances list, I see things like LSD and amphetamines, which a zero tolerance policy makes sense on,...

    I just started riding my mare in a pelham as well (she is sooo happy in it!), and when I initially picked it up, just tossed a spare set of reins on the curb ring, until I figured out what she...

    Ditto this. I have a breastplate, with elastic but cut like a traditional "hunting breastplate" but only use it because I event. Terrain, banks, etc can make even a well fitting saddle shift a bit,...

    Huh, I have their lined leathers on my dressage saddle, and have been pretty happy with them. They're a couple years old, though, so maybe something changed? They're not the same quality as Beval...

    What about the classic hot toddy? Basically hot water with lemon, honey, and cinnamon or clove, then add whisky. Super easy. You'd essentially need a bottle of hot honeyed water, some lemon wedges...

    If it's cool enough to want more than a polo, I'd guess a lot of people may be in coats. But you don't need one for starter/schooling stuff. A dark technical zip or a dark sweater should be fine,...

    Thanks, everyone :) I just did my entries online for the Puddle Jumper division, since the weather for the weekend is looking good, and actually allow me to take lessons this week! If you're there,...

    I think the "deal" is that the cost of the previous year's annual registration would be applied to the cost of upgrading to Lifetime, so it would be less expensive. But that's true at any time of...

    I don't know why you'd have to pay office or grounds fee twice, you'd just be entering to ride two tests, so the fee would be the same as if you'd be riding two different ones. At least the few...

    IME, they won't even let you plan to do the same test twice with both rides to count. I believe our local GMO rules are something like that you may enter to ride a test twice, but only the first...

    Swan Lake winter schooling jumper shows?
