    If it is all training, then why is it that former top riders go so long before finding another top horse? Why doesn't Steffen Peters just go rescue an OTTB instead of being at the mercy of a wealthy...

    Buying horses is like buying stocks. Sure if you put a lot of time and research into finding undervalued stocks, you can do quite well. But you've got to be a very educated stock picker and do your...

    I just saw that Zenyatta's filly had to be euthanized after a paddock accident.
    Young horses are less expensive because the buyer is taking on most of the risk. And with these very fancy horses,...

    Exactly. When we see someone ride who has proved himself internationally as a trainer at the very top level over and over again, instead of criticizing, we would learn more if we asked why he was...

    And not just well packed for shipping. I was expecting a bubble mailer or mylar envelope. But it was shipped in a cardboard box, which will be easier to wrap and makes a nicer presentation for...

    Just because "everybody does it" does not make it right, so, as Wanda Sykes says, "knock it off."

    Oh, and, by the way, it's Subaru.
  7. I don't know anything about western pleasure so I...

    I don't know anything about western pleasure so I am not at all qualified to judge them. I have no idea who Nick Peronance is, but if a panel of international judges is giving him the thumbs up,...

    That doesn't make it appropriate.

    I think that Nicole Uphoff and Anky Van Grunsven would both beg to differ. At least from what I have read.

    And it depends, it depends, it depends. On the horse, on the situation, what is...
  10. WTF is that supposed to mean? :no:

    WTF is that supposed to mean? :no:
  11. Well, how about when the horse is about to...

    Well, how about when the horse is about to explode? :lol:

    You guys are tough. You make it sound like these riders are riding machines that do not have minds of their own.

    That's a good point. Subarus don't depreciate as quickly. The resale (and trade in) value is usually better over the years.

    I have a 2006 Forrester. It is the best car that I have ever owned. I will drive it until it drops and then buy another one just like it.
  14. I find it enlightening to look at the European...

    I find it enlightening to look at the European prices in Euros. Then realize that one Euro is worth almost 1/3 more than one dollar ($1.27).

    That's when you start realizing that $100,000 is a...

    I agree. It's a terrible precedent, and I don't understand how Masipa could possibly have arrived at the conclusion that she did. If she had stated that she credited some defense theory, such as...

    Actually, in many cases, criticism of those at the top is simply the "green eyed monster" effect.
  18. I think that the criticisms were a bit more...

    I think that the criticisms were a bit more vehement and sillier than that. For example, saddle doesn't fit and gaits are impure. I mean really? :lol:
  19. Dear lord, the International judges who gave him...

    Dear lord, the International judges who gave him the damn 88% are the only ones whose opinions count.

    If you don't care for the world class judges, riders and horses, then I dare say you should...

    Undercover is 13 years old, I believe. I'd watch out for him in Rio.

    As far as the quality of the riding, judging and horse, not a lot there to criticize. I remember when many people hated the...

    Looks like the grounds are there. How could he not know that someone might die?

    I just saw this article in eventing nation about it. I guess the neck strap breaks away easily.

    Two comments:

    1. Unnecessary.

    2. Misleading.

    Unnecessary is not so bad. But the fact that these "ratings" may be misleading speaks to their lack of usefulness. :no:

    Thanks for chiming in, Ozalynda. You certainly speak for ASTHE far more knowledgeably than I can. I am just a happy member, not an administrator. I love looking at the photos on ASTHE and finding...
