    And that picture, Gypsymare, is one reason I've drawn such a deep line in the sand for myself on this issue that I won't even look at the pictures: he's gorgeous. I'm sure I'd be more willing to...

    Reading "prospect" the way I use it - a horse that's not already doing at least what you want to with it - I'm kind of surprised that people are so willing to accept bows. With so many clean legged...

    Agree with BFNE. I wonder if the clinic situation explains part of it - e.g. horse needed a standing and was wearing a figure 8, and no other noseband was available - and that maybe there was some...

    Yahoo for cocoa puffs!! Switching from my beautiful navy jacket, shirt and stock tie - polka dotted and all - to a short sleeved seersucker shirt was one of my favorite competition ritual changes a...

    I'll chime in because I was just shopping for a prospect off the track and am one who didn't call on her, not because she's not cute - although she's a little older and a little smaller than I'd have...

    Wish I had the solution for you - I've temporarily settled on a single jointed D in my similar search - but wanted to suggest that you borrow a myler before buying one. I bought the comfort snaffle...

    Just went through a search (successful!). I looked at the usual suspects - Dreamhorse, Sporthorse Nation - but looked primarily on FB. Horses looking for homes was one, as well as event horses for...

    Um, Sunshine Lion is about the cutest thing ever and looks like an eventer. If I had a farm and could take a chance on one without sitting on him, he'd be first on my list.

    I wonder where you heard it too. I've always understood them to be legal. The rulebook doesn't mention rings on a figure 8, and the picture isn't all that enlightening, but the picture of the...

    Confidence and all the good schooling in the world don't necessarily mean that your 5 year old TB is going to react appropriately in the warmup or when the judge rings the bell just as you pass. ...

    She is the one who taught me never to take a clinic I haven't audited first. Had I been among the faint of heart, I might have bowed out when her program - which is inflexible - didn't work for my...

    I might audit, if it were close and free, but will never ride in a clinic with her again. She's a brilliant rider though.

    I've ridden with a yoke in dressage many times, recognized, without ever a comment - even from the judge who attempted to dress me down (no pun intended) for not wearing a jacket at a 1 day, so...

    I have one now (sound when I bought him several years ago), and darned lucky thing he's cute. We're 1 1/4 years into PO nightmare/rehab/nightmare and not working yet. Forget buying him: you couldn't...

    Ugh - sorry you're dealing with this. I think these are going to be out of the question for you, since you'd probably have to do the unworkable trek, but can you do CT and MRI? My horse had a...

    I'm a big believer in better life through chemistry for rehabbing, so count me in on the drugging side of the ledger. I used ace - the barn people just squirted it in his mouth about an hour before...

    I don't usually comment on these things, but I really just don't see an unhappy horse - or one who doesn't want to play - on that video. Looked quite nice, actually, stop aside.

    Thanks, guys,

    Yup, Marla, I read everything I could find about this, and I'm lucky to have a really good farrier. And Due, sorry about your horse. I know I may well be in the same boat - just...
  20. pedal osteitis hangover: ISO words of wisdom

    To make a long story short, I’m about 14 months out from surgery to debride an infected coffin bone, 11 months out from the fx of the same bone, 8 months out from MRI and CT of it, and round 1 of...

    I'm surprised that people like the Lettia coolmax girths: I hated mine enough that I donated it to a Pony Club sale. The buckles were crooked somehow and had rollers with sharp edges. On top of...

    This cracks me up - but then, there was one event back in the day where I'd get dropped off Thursday evening and picked up Sunday afternoon. Slept in the loft and had a bucket heater and an...

    That's one of the "good" Stubbens, in my book. I sold one (same vintage) a few years ago for $500-550 to a kid who I wanted to have it. Figured I might have been able to get 750, but not much more,...

    Nope, sorry. It's enough of a gamble getting one who's already survived the first three years and been started - I'll let someone else gamble on the early years and install some manners. It might...
