    me too, but it looks like they all have a USEF sponsor now (on the handful of unrelated ones I checked). That would make sense if someone wanted to submit a less than popular suggestion, I guess.

    I think any USEF member can submit a rule change proposal, so I don't think we can say for sure the USEF is wasting resources (precious or otherwise) other than giving members the right to suggest...

    2008 was the last show I showed there (RMI) and I think the last RMI show there. By then Rick was using his place in Aiken for PSJ shows. I know Little Vic held a few Elite shows there for another...

    Bemused humor is more like it (I will also threaten them with a future in a dog food can if the moment calls for it). I seem to get one end of the spectrum to the other. From a horse who damn near...

    yellowbritches is right - sometimes the way they load the outside foot on the circle is more painful than the inside foot. It could be that, but given that he may have been rough housing around, be...

    Really? What if it is a windpuff? Do these same people also grumble if the horse walks out of his stall with a windpuff? Because I think I'm in trouble. I have a retired horse who has "fluid...

    35K may make sense if they know he could compete and win in the HUS classes in AQHA (or already is). Over fences is just icing on the cake after that. And 35K is about what I would expect for a...

    If you were talking about WB hunters with a lot of scope across their topline (I like that term better than "cresty") the genetic lottery goes a long way. It's like having a dolly parton figure, all...

    Actually, I was speaking of the seller showing the horse in its divisions, not letting potential buyers show the horse. And yeah, you and I lived there and stood at the in gate together many a time,...

    WEF and HITS would shut down if people couldn't try out sales horses during the show day! ;)

    The only thing I can add is if the horse has been tried by more than few people and showed in a few...

    I use tack shack sales halters. While they don't wear them in turn out, they hang on the fence in the elements while they are out and get bathed along with the horse. One is 7 years old the other is...

    The inference that if a horse is expensive or too valuable it ought not to be tied to a trailer is probably bound to provoke a negative response/opinion, because I'm fairly certain the vast majority...

    I'm of an age that remembers when you didn't go to a show with stabling, so tying to the trailer was just something you had to do. We even had halter yearlings that stood tied (the 70's and 80's......

    Another thing to consider is a horse may be a cocky young bastard, and its not so much a case of not loving the job (the horse in question clearly loves jumping big sticks), but the horse may not...

    Doubtful. I was braiding my horse (blood bay) in dark blue in 2006 (in GA) and it wasn't like I invented the idea. ;) (some of my finest ideas are stolen).
