    IME as well...there are not barn hours until there is a problem with people. You get a couple that take advantage and not act reasonably....and then you have to set a new rule.

    I've been at...

    It is NOT the setting of goals but the setting a time frame for training a horse to a level currently well above them is not wise as it is often unrealistic and often creates an incentive to rush...

    I would be careful trying to make a study like that analogous with horses. I could see a RIDER having a stated goal like this but it doesn't work as well with an individual horse. Having big goals...

    I own my own barn...we recently imposed barn hours but not because of the people with us as much as for those who want to trailer into use the indoor.

    We want people off their horses by 8:30 pm...

    Not sure they ever used to split up the old long formats that way. I don't ever remember divisions at all....everyone was in the same big group.

    Regardless, to me, there shouldn't be any...

    I've acted as scribe, steward, scoring, jump judge (more times than I can count), starter and finish for xc, in gate for SJ (many times). All at both recognized and starter trials. I've jump judged...

    Very true. Many of the bigger programs will charge you board for your horse.

    What sort of instructor do you like and click well with (besides that doesn't scream a lot (I'm with you on that one)? What are your strengths and weaknesses as a rider? There are many different...

    The world of event horse breeders is fairly small. There are only a handful that breed specifically for eventing. There are some facebook pages out there. OP can also look at the FEH and YEH...

    Well I know you....you will be fine with either option. For where we are coming from, it isn't a HUGE change in weather so she will hopefully not need a ton of adjustment. As long as you have her...

    Maybe not. This is actually an approach that was taught to me by both my jumper trainers and event trainers. Just about EVERYONE has nerves and confidence issues. Doesn't matter your...

    Some people I know don't like it but I do. I perfer it to MC. But it doesn't do well cold cold (I keep it in my heated tack room in the winter)....and you need to have wet gloves on to put it...

    Better than nothing though......It is the xc that I really want video of since I can't see all the fences. I can see all the dressage and SJ.

    I agree. What I want in a novice/BN course for a young green horse, even one that may be an UL prospect, is the same that I want for my friends (or kids of friends) who are just starting out in the...

    I didn't want to get into the details of it...that is why I had just said that the small "r" CD had a riding requirement as do the large "R". Last time I organized an event (which was AGES ago),...

    yes. CDs have to have ridden 2 or more horses above prelim to be a "r". Small r can design Prelim and below.

    Then it is time to give him to someone else to work with for a couple of months and see if they make any progress (to rule out you being the one causing the issue)....or give up on lead changes. ...

    you probably have not tried it long enough. It takes a LONG time to build up strength in a horse.....years even. That was the point I was making. You need to get the canter strong first...and I...

    stop schooling changes.

    Work on schooling his canter. (assuming that he is vet out and nothing is physically wrong). Doing what you are doing is basically teaching him to buck and get stressed...

    Jimmy Wofford wrote an excellent article about draw reins.

    Yes, I have a set. We used them for the photos in the article....and two of my somewhat out of shape mares. I had to clean mold off...

    That sort of round today and back them should have gotten DR penalties if they were that scary.

    It isn't about the circling....people are too damn hung up on that. It is that the SPORT is about running xc. Cantering and galloping safely over solid fences out side of the ring...so why...

    JP60--We just disagree on this.

    To me...the sport of eventing IS about galloping and speed. That is what makes us eventers and not show riders.

    Your argument is exactly my point and why I...

    I had always heard his frozen was decent quality. But I suppose that can always depend on when it was collected and how it was frozen.

    As a stallion...he never had issues with his semen quality,...

    The point is you would have had just as good if not better experience WITHOUT circling. So why have that even have to be a thought for you on course?

    It added nothing to your training. And maybe...
