    I thought the 2010 WEG had amazingly smooth parking direction, shuttle service, and the food vendors were fine.

    Are you thinking of 2014 WEG?? One gross hamburger stand for 10,000 people, everyone...

    I don't think anyone should hesitate to pull someone off their horse. I had someone try my horse for lease who fell off TWICE in about ONE MINUTE of total riding time. I reiterated about 50 times...

    My handy little (15.2hh) TB/WB cross has the same problem. Fine in a double-jointed snaffle for dressage and SJ, but blows through it on XC.

    Right now I'm using the beval/wonder bit, but it's not...

    Here in California, all boarding barns require you to carry "personal liability insurance." I think it covers if some random person strolls through the barn, gets bitten/kicked by your horse, and...

    It's not allowed at recognized events.

    But I will share my story of how my saintly OTTB packed me around Novice and my learning-to-ride husband around "greener than grass" at the same...

    Funny how many say not to let the head get too low.

    I scribed for a judge that said, "I want that head ON THE GROUND!!"

    Some of it is just natural. One previous horse I had scored an 8 on every...

    "After retiring sound from the track in 2013, new owners Graham and Anita Motion of Herringswell Stables saw Icabad’s athletic drive and desire and decided to put him in training for eventing."

    My cheap-o vest comes down much further than the fancy new (ASTM-approved) Tipp I just tried on. The Tipp came up too high on my neck and ended too soon above my waist, I thought. My Flex Rider is...

    Indeed ... May-Daze was always called a "move up" course, but I'd say it was pretty robust this year. Don't think I've ever seen a huge-ditch half coffin on a bending 3 strides to the out element,...

    I'm thrilled for exactly this reason. Tons of 6.5s when I would have just gotten tons of 6s.

    Although one judge I scribed for last year or earlier said she kept a tally in her head of how many...
  11. Eventing people in Orange County, CA? Moving from Lexington, KY

    The title says it all! I am hoping to find an eventing community in Orange County, CA ... where can I take lessons and find XC schooling? Willing to go to Temecula if needed ... just not sure where...

    In case you haven't heard about Trumbull Mountain, they work long-distance from your tracings and specialize in Black Country. I hear nothing but rave reviews of their saddle-fit assistance.

    I recently got a Pikeur Skarlett for my birthday (http://www.doversaddlery.com/pikeur-skarlett-coat/p/X1-40533/) due to my near-religious aversion to dry cleaning. It is very fancy looking and...

    Denny just posted this quote from Bill Steinkraus today ... I think it's safe to say the man is the foremost expert on the topic!

    If it's where the D-ring meets the bit, blast it with WD40. Worked great on my squeaky eggbutt.

    I've done it once, and would NOT recommend it.

    Theoretically I could just barely afford it, but why strain yourself to the edge? Ended up taking a loooong 7 months to sell horse #1, and I sold...

    My 12yo OTTB evented Novice with me and cross-rails with my husband at the same time... often even at the same SHOWS. He knew what to do. But he was a very saintly boy!

    Are we twins? LOL. I have the Pessoa Monoflap as well, love it on my big-jumping guy for security.

    I've changed the gullet several times by myself and it's not hard, easier than Wintec, I'd say....

    FWIW, me and other locals I've talked to are pretty shocked/unhappy about the doubling of the car hang-tag from $25 to $50. An increase makes sense... but doubling seems a bit much.

    I don't think...

    My horse has a similar straightness of back, my Amerigo rocked like crazy (French-type saddles seem to be built curvy).

    I got an adjustable gullet Pessoa monoflap, and he's been doing great....

    20 years old, in college, working 2 jobs, admittedly broke, living in an area where horsekeeping is way expensive?

    To me this spells "sell the horse and don't buy another (for now)."

    I promise...

    I think last time it was Dec. 1... since there are no recognized events in December, gives you some time to study before Jan. 1.

    I wonder if it's the fact that it bows out. There was an arced jump a couple years back that was kind of rainbow-shaped that a lot of horses were falling over. Since horses lose sight of what's in...

    No, I haven't had the wool flocking adjusted. Thankfully the panels are nicely overstuffed, which was exactly what I needed for the hollows behind my horse's scapulas. But I like the idea that it can...
