    You could try to jump-start some socialization, assuming that you otherwise like the people with whom you ride.

    Oxford Hill in Honeoye Falls has a series of schooling shows in the summer. They have hunter and jumper divisions up to 3', but nothing bigger than that, I don't think. Schooling show, though, not...

    I wholeheartedly agree with this! I ride with Ginny and would recommend her without reservation. Her daughter is a professional and does the riding, and they are bringing along my 4.5 year old mare...

    I think most would rather combine divisions to have even the HOPE of getting some points, rather than not having your division run at all... And it usually seems to work in favor of both divisions.

    I know, I know :) That's why I'm still holding some hope. They did make two barn calls to ask for people to check to see if they had accidentally grabbed an extra martingale.

    Would you steal a martingale? Vent!!

    I know it was my fault -- I should have kept track of my stuff after the hack -- but tell me, would YOU guys steal a martingale? If I found a martingale left in the schooling ring, I would make sure...

    You can care about it all you want. But you are sadly mistaken if you think it's going to help you one iota in the hunters.

    So, Pop, you show in a place in zone 5 where they still wear stock pins AND hunters are judged on equitation?

    Fascinating.

    Innovation trees are pretty generous, and if it were even a *narrow* rather than an *extra narrow* and you ride a lot of narrower horses I'd say go for it. But the *extra* part might make me shy away...

    Nope. No age limit on larges. You can show regular larges until you age out of being a junior, and there is no age limit on any green ponies. You can show until you're an adult.

    No lead change, no ribbon.

    Unless you can land on them, and messing around to land on them can often affect their jump.

    Do they have high end h/j stuff? There are western and generic type places that I've found but nothing for nicer stuff. But if there's a good place in Waukesha I'll totally try it!

    I have to use a different email and set up a new "account" every time I want to use the TENOFF code. Have you found a different code, or do you have a different way of using it?

    I went down a size from my Hampton to my GR8. I got the same size AYR8 as GR8 and it seems fine, but I only wear the AYR8 at shows, so it's conceivable that it isn't all the way "broken in" yet.
