    I would think the Tipperary or one of the knockoffs would be best. There was one that was being marketed on ebay that looked fairly light/ thin. I do think you sacrifice a bit of protection if they...

    If you're just using it to pony I'd just get a ring sewn on to his halter. I have ponied a small pony off a variety of horses up to 17 hands-- my big problem was that the pony was a punk and kept...

    I can't imagine that any barn would actually charge you for watering your horse.

    Showjumping will be in the big ring. I would keep your hacking to the dressage warmup and the hill between the trailer parking and the show jumping ring (stay out of the jumping warmup until you...

    They no longer split the Waredaca one at all-- last year when I did it there were 36 riders in it. I don't think the Midsouth one gets split either.

    I have an early 90s Bison. I think I paid $2500 for it plus maybe another $1k over the next year or so for rewiring, tires, and some welding. If you know someone knowledgeable you can really trust...

    I might not have been thrilled in her place either. But I would probably have expressed it by saying something like, "Oh, gosh I'm sorry you had to do that, I really HAD planned to do it tonight." ...

    A few weeks after she did Rolex my trainer and I were in the same 2'3 division at a starter trial. I said something like, "Wow I bet these fences look small to you!"

    And she said something...

    I actually don't think you could build a BN or even N corner according to the specifications and have it actually ask the question a corner is designed to ask, so I'm not sure what the point is (even...

    If they match it may just be him, especially if he is kind of awkward otherwise, sometimes they have to grow into their joints. But I agree x-rayin is the only way to know.

    I have done just the bib clip and didn't blanket and was fine-- last few years my guys at home get a body or trace clip and I blanket early in the morning for the day and they wear whatever blanket...

    I think doing two classes the first day and skipping the second day (even if you still have to stay because you don't have a ride home) might be worth trying.

    A few other things to try:

    Yes (particularly if they weren't convicted :) )-- I'm 35, so for example someone in their mid 30s or 40s who had been arrested 15 years ago would not necessarily put me off. But violent crime or...

    Can she wear the largest child size? Places like LL Bean or Dick's (or probably anywhere that sells ski/ hunting/ hiking equipment) should have Smartwool or something similar in kids' sizes.

    JP60, I AGREE with you that courses and times don't need to be changed. This is my hobby, too. Just because someone is a professional doesn't mean they are an upper level rider. Not all upper...

    I think you guys are being unfair. It's been pointed out repeatedly on this thread that Training is vastly different than it was 20 years ago, so it's less of an introduction to the sport and more...

    I actually think event horses are reasonably sound. Most of the ones I know compete well into their late teens. Most of them also are turned out a great deal (often even 24/7) and hacked several...
