    Pretty sure it is legal in jumpers. No. I wouldn't use it for a hunter.

    I haven't read everything but given what you have described, have you tried a Micklem bridle? It has some similarities as a drop but there is more to it. It may also not offend this BNT and...

    I'd hate to leave her baby behind..... Ugh. Her feet look like they haven't been don in months.

    I didn't want to get into to much detail but it is the type of canter that tells you whether they will have a good gallop. There is more than one type of canter that has a good jump. If they have...

    really? Because most of the foals that I have canter right away. They gallop a bit later but they certainly come out of the box with a canter. Trot often takes several months to see. Canter has...

    You buy a canter and a good jump for an event horse. You do not need a gallop like you described. You want a balanced horse who covers the ground easily in a light manner. I can tell right away if...

    As as I said. The top ranked are NOT the ones they have to send. It just enables them to send a team of whomever the selectors want to send.

    Those going on about Footing not being muddy or deep in the US have obviously not been to FairHill 3* that often.

    Also NOONE runs in footing as bad as was at WEG this weekend. Which from reports...

    It is odd but it doesn't work that way. The top individuals in the world rankings would give the US the ability to send a team BUT they do not have to send the individuals whose points were used. ...

    eventing is NOT the same as Show jumping...and the US eventing team is NOT the same as the Irish. We have a lot of riders in the top of world rankings. This is just NOT a huge issue for our sport. ...

    actually. Canada still had a decent chance of qualifying out of WEG. They are still in it as they had 3 team riders complete. A lot will depend on the jog and jumping tomorrow. Top 5 or 6...

    The USA is typically EXTREMELY competitive at the PanAms. Just like before London, they will just send more experienced pairs.

    As for qualifying enough individuals (as AUS had to do for ...

    it is just STUPID because that wasn't the "goal" of WEG anyway. The Goal was to medal. WEG is a bigger deal than the Olympics for our sport. Yeah...now the USA will need to do some work to...
  14. No. Just like before London, they will need to...

    No. Just like before London, they will need to qualify at the PanAms next year. Which typically isn't a problem.

    And may not have passed the jog on Sunday. Again. We are all not privy to all information of selectors. Regardless, while I think highly of the mare, I don't think Marilyn has the experience yet...

    Honestly. I'm not questioning the team selection. Phillip was correct to retire. His horse was done (I may question sending him with that horse instead of Mighty Nice). Same with Buck. Both...

    Yes. All horses and riders have so far. One rider had a bad looking fall (horse was fine-- rider looked knocked out). But they haven't said anything. Like I said , it's been good to watch. Lots...

    Watching it. Really not bad to watch. Riding well for the most part. Falls not super scary. More drive bys and just horses getting tired but many are finishing decently.

    All the ones I know of other than 2 (out of the last 15 that I can think of without effort--- NOT Fresh OTTBs or projects) were sold by professionals. Not random horse owners but most are not "sale"...

    The German rider who won (Sandra) was wearing a helmet. There were several top riders in helemts that I saw.

    I absolutely disagree. The OP asked what to expect. I've recently been both a buyer AND seller of horses in the range I think they are talking about. Fancier nice horses with training and...

    I also really don't agree....that at least has not been my experience (from buying and selling and knowing what others are selling for). I wouldn't drop the original advertised price off of many of...
