    REALLY? Do you know HOW many people have ordered Mundials? Do they all deserve to lose their money because they didn't order Konigs or Der Daus? That is really not fair. Mundial has been selling...

    Just have to say, I had a Friesian w/ an outstanding canter. I ran into some ocassional judging bias, unfortunately. But I even had an Olympic level judge give him 8s on his canter work and tell...

    OMG, no kidding - they look like oil dereks - it is amazing the neck can hold up the head, isn't it! There really is a reason it is hard to sell yearlings and 2 year olds. They can be SO fugly,...

    Wait until they are 2 or 3 - the neck can change quite a bit for the first few years.

    Awww, I love color. Having said that, I've been riding since I was pre-teen, and my first horse with ANY markings beyond a tiny star or very short anklets was bought in my 40s! And I wasn't looking...

    Yea, around here, especially with a multi-ring show, the order will be all jumbled up. Trying to ensure that a rider on multiple horses at multiple levels has at least an hour between horses, trying...

    Originally - what do you mean by that? Originally bred for carrying knights into battle but that was centuries ago. Then the breed almost disappeared - used extensively for cross breeding in more...

    Do a search on Mundial - there are a lot of similar stories. I know a few people who have gotten boots that just didn't fit - at all. Unfortunately, Mundial seems to have a few quality control...

    Sorry, but that is just wrong. If you have ever been involved with teaching or READ anything about how people learn, you will realize it is hard-wired into the brain. Some people learn by watching,...

    I have audited a ton of clinics with many big-name trainers (Steffan Peters, Debbie McDonald, Leslie Morse, Juan Matute, Heather Blitz, Mary Wanless, Walter Zettl, Hilda Gurney to name a few well...

    First real break was to finish college and start a professional career. When I reached a point of comfort in my career, I started riding again. Then about 15 years later, took a break because my...

    Reviving an old thread... I was at a judges training a few years ago (I am an L grad, not a judge) and the teacher (an S judge and a DSHB judge) said the same thing about a horse as it went around...

    I have made comments on people going too deep into corners - usually because the horse is not ready for it and loses balance and forward energy. Some people try to ride a corner like a real angle -...

    I think you have to look at individual GMOs? We have a few of them in California put on by chapters of the California Dressage Society.

    They aren't a breed registry. No one argues that point (although they DO run PHR). But they are the show result data base in the US - and those show results should provide accurate lineage, horse...

    Every horse has its own schedule. There is no formula. In general, I would introduce small amounts of collection - use the lateral work to help, and transitions within the gait (a few steps...

    At this angle, it is hard to tell - he does look to be leaning onto the forehand - but again, could that be the effect of dropping his head - without video of the movement (entry, halt, strike off)...

    Totally agree! I understand some halts are not true halts - but in general, I do think they get properly scored. Showing a horse that ducks his head AS the rider salutes - I'd much rather see how...

    Another who does NOT oil. Lederbalsm - I do it about every other week. And damp cloth to wipe it down after almost every ride. Do NOT use soap often - it will fade the black to green.

    Probably bay - I don't see any scelera around his eyes that might indicate appy pattern. Sometimes they do "frost" as they get older, but you usually see at least some appy characteristics when...

    I haven't had to do it myself (now hock injections, yes). BUT... I know several people who have, and it has been successful. As prior poster says, every horse is different, but I know of a few who...

    People on Horses! They make lovely browbands, stock ties, and sport boots. The boots don't have bling but you an get them in patent, and in alligator skin print (yes, I have a pair of patent...

    Totally agree w/ your last sentence - and that is my point w/ TB mares too. Way too many people think they can pick up a TB mare for free (or under $1,000 which is essentially free) and breed future...
