    1. Judges who have judged Dressage Seat Equitation have always been, per the directives for that class, been judging the rider as opposed to the horse/gaits. By way of example, many of the riders at...

    I highly recommend considering the (very easy) surgery where they form an attachment to the abdominal wall. I have had two horses that had repeated colic episodes, one requiring two surgeries before...

    Remember that you can't be a professional and use US Rider. I signed up a few years ago (didn't read the fine print, responded to one of the many emails I would get from them urging me to sign up)...

    For the record, the new AA entity is a Sub Committee of the USEF Dressage Committee (not USDF). And both Hilary Clayton and Lisa Goretta are AAs.

    And remember that, even though some of us are not...

    A huge loss to the dressage community as a whole and particularly to Dressage at Devon and all of Region 1. She will be sorely missed.

    I can't imagine going to the USDF Convention without the...

    From the web site:

    Both of our August Horse Shows, August 16 - 19 and August 22 - 26, are cancelled due to lack of entries.


    Let's hope that they haven't overestimated the demand for a new,...

    And just a note, it's not just for Regional Championship CLASSES, but for the entire show (so if you show on Sunday, your trainer can't ride your horse Fri and Sat... e.g). Once you arrive, RC rules...

    Look at the scores for Minna Telde and Santana - 54 from Maribel? Yipe! Wonder if there was an error in the electronic scoring....First one that has been really out of line so far.

    I REALLY like the gelding in the 3rd ad. Not sure why, just a feeling that he is going to make someone a really nice horse. They all look fairly sweet and gentle, just ignored. Let's hope they go...

    I'd also bet that it's easier to get volunteer help to do all the pre-trial set-up work on a Saturday than on a Friday, so easier to get ready Sat and show Sun for the organizer as well as the...

    The fencing in the second ad isn't so bad either! My horses would immediately kill themselves on either fence. I guess that's why they weren't kept as breeding stock.

    I am a pro and I also have shown in opportunity classes. There is no restriction of these classes to "new" or "lower level" or AA riders and there are many reasons that someone might enter them....

    Except that, since I am a professional rider/trainer, even though I do NOT haul professionally (or for money - I haul my own horses), I am not eligible for coverage. I signed up once (at their...

    In addition to my normal training, teaching and breeding, I began doing "night watch" at horse shows a few years ago to help cover expenses of a horse with a lot of medical bills. I not only watch...

    At home, time necessitates that I have some help tacking and untacking, but I usually do my "top" horse myself (PSG/IntI at the moment). At shows, I do everything myself - tacking and untacking,...

    Really, it's not that easy for those of us who are professionals to get away either. Not only do I lose income, but I have to pay for extra help to keep things going while I am gone, never mind...

    Not to be harsh, but if you can't afford $500 for xrays (which sounds high, but whatever) then you can't see this through the long haul that it is bound to be. I don't see how you can either make a...
