    Am I the only one completely horrified by this? I can see politics coming in at local shows with crappy judges, but at WEF the judges should be competent and above all this.

    In the horse business, there is nothing more expensive than potential.

    (Except, possibly, proven results)

    Would make a difference whether the "small" horse was 14.3 or 15.3.
    Sounds like the trainer wants to keep the pony in her barn and make a few $. If the horse is suitable (and not tiny), there are...

    I really can't believe all the fuss over 3". Take out a ruler. Do you think there is a horse in the world who can tell the difference?

    Did it occur to you that AQHA western riders are not the only ones without helmets? I'm looking at the saddleseat riders, and those who show breeds (Arabs, Morgans, Paints, etc.) in western tack. It...

    Try shortening your stirrups. Also try moving the stirrup leather back on the stirrup bar. ( A bit of radiator hose will work for this). If the geometry is wrong for your femur length your feet will...

    The point I'm trying to make is that when (not if) the first sanctioning body for any equestrian sport loses that giant liability lawsuit, the other sanctioning bodies ignore that result at their...

    Fine,, but the world is bigger than AQHA. Horses are shown in Western and saddleseat tack in parade, western dressage, western reining, and many breeds. Those competitions are governed by USEF.

    I think a lot of people have gotten the English vs Western thing out of proportion. Hunters, jumpers , eventers, combined driving (?) and Paso Fino people must wear approved helmets to compete. That...

    I was going to suggest catalogs that cater to mules, as I've always heard of a bicycle chain bit as a "mule bit".

    I think you're set. Unless you're at a AA show and competing with a bunch of other perfect rounds in front of a fashionista judge, the direction your buckles are facing won't make a difference. You...

    Some people, like charliemyheart, are just lucky. Being smart or skilled or experienced has very little to do with it.

    I have nearly 60 years worth of experience with horses, all of it taking care...

    Yep. The show jumpers and eventers don't have nearly as many unknowns as the hunters. In the COTH Rolex issue they even have the JC name with the breeding...

    Information from commentators on a broadcast is entirely different from a compete CV in the arena during judging. On the air information is both appropriate and desirable!

    If you gflash back a few dozen years, there was resistance to English riders wearing helmets. First , USEF made them mandatory for juniors, then for all. There was grumbling, but if you wanted to...

    I hope that the quest for Big Eq. medals doesn't mess up the wonderful flow and touch that Tori Colvin has shown up to now. But I have my fears.

    Just a few words for clarification. I think that it is very important in a discussion of breeding to distinguish between breeds and registries. TB's, Arabs, Morgans, QH's etc are breeds. Warmbloods...

    I think Bode brings a great deal to the table, not the least of which is name recognition. I think the hardest thing for him to adjust to as a trainer will be rehabbing horses. You can't put them on...
