    Around here the shows with NRHA classes have been bigger than the past 2 years (I've done several classes that started after 9 pm). But the schooling show numbers are down, as are the reining class...

    pictures of the saddle on the horse (no pad) and pictures of the dry spots would be helpful. You don't want small dry spots as that shows really high pressure. Big dry spots can mean a lot of...

    Either British or French. Either would add to my enjoyment. I'm so used to watching reining with no commentary (in person and live event feeds with an announcer only) that I can't decide if I like it...

    Indeed! Especially because he keeps mixing up maneuver scores and penalty points.

    How small/big are the dry spots? Bigger than your fist and you're likely okay with a downhill horse, especially if he's not sore anywhere.

    I use this saddle pad on my 5 year old reiner. Saddle fit...

    Thanks all! I think we'll look into Georgetown and maybe look at VRBO since I'm hoping my aunt and cousin will join us too.

    Next question - how much are tickets for the 3-day? They don't go on...

    Kentucky Horse Park - Lodging?

    I'm starting to put together plans (dreams?) to go to the Rolex 3-day and Reining Cup next year. I've invited my mother to go with me and I'm thinking that making a cancellable lodging reservation...

    Glad to hear! And so sorry, I didn't see your post about being open to vet suggestions until just now. If things change, feel free to PM me. Both will require a trailer ride for you, but both are...

    Reining at the WEG

    Whoever the main commentator is for the reining is cracking me up. He clearly know nothing about reining (but is learning quickly) and his descriptions and enthusiasm are endearing and hilarious....

    On a daily basis, cleaning stalls takes the most time. The time I most begrudge is the time spent mowing and weed-wacking.

    Right, but if you're talking about the videos of the winning US team rides, none of those horses spent their runs with their ears pinned. They had their ears BACK and their game faces on. That's my...

    It's not a QH thing, it's a thinking thing. I ride reiners, and my horse is happy, well-adjusted, and loves his job. And alomst every photo I have of us showing he has his ears back because he's...

    We should start new threads for both the dressage and the reining.

    Replays are not free. I ponied up and paid the annual subscription fee.



    Actually, when I checked with their tech support it seems to be an OS version issue (I'm 10.5.x and it needs to be 10.6...

    The replays from this morning are up and running on the website. No access from the iPad app and my ancient Mac couldn't get them to play. But my work laptop (PC) pulled them down just fine. Got my...

    I scratch my gelding's inside thighs and empty scrotum (gelded late with really big brains) for him after every ride. It makes him happy and keeps him from dancing around like a dipshit while the...

    Eh, when I was rehabbing my (tbd) DSLD gelding from a suspensory tear my (very respected) vet recommended the Professional's Choice Elite SMB boots. Used them for rehab with no issues.

    FTR, I do...

    Is he going under an electric fence / gate somewhere? We once had a barn cat with weird markings that turned out to be from sleeping too close to a heat lamp.

    I mow with the horses in the pasture. Even in spring when I do end up with furrows of fairly damp grass/weeds (PNW here). Never had a problem.

    I'm giving it for the same reasons. I did the 4 loading doses and now give it every 3-5 weeks to line up with shows. My vet suggested that I try to give it 4-5 days before a show for maximum benefit....

    Um, no. I haul 15 minutes to ride 5 days a week and it certainly doesn't take 1/2 a day.

    Weeknights:
    Home - 6 pm
    Change clothes, kiss husband, load horse, pull out - 6:25 pm
    Pull into barn -...

    I think he's adorable - he looks happy and not stiff at all. If he's been out of work awhile the saddle may fit differently than it used to until he builds muscle again - but I didn't see any glaring...

    Sorry. But REALLY?!?!

    Apparently you know nothing about reining. If I were ever to grab the horn I'm pretty sure my trainer would come out of her chair and smack my hands. Not to mention it's a 5...

    That field is just down the way from me (the first one). Hay is a generous term for what you would actually be baling. Not to mention it should have been cut a month ago. You get what you pay for.
