    Let's talk about 3'5"!

    YES.

    Change, grow, morph, guide carefully, change. Grow. It's absolutely necessary. I grew up showing hunters because they were the only shows around with decent jumps and decent arenas to ride...

    I proposed that the numbers on fences should be in easily recognizable shapes because as we get older we just don't see as well and colors often look the same in the shade. Shapes like diamonds,...

    I'd walk some barrels and do some tiny skinnies at home to be prepared. And sticky stuff on your saddle and boots.

    Good for green horses who literally do not know how to jump, as this teaches them...

    Excellent advice - the only thing I would add is that your horse is YOUR horse. All the miles other people are spending on him are taking away miles you can enjoy him as he ages. Be VERY careful...

    In my opinion the subjective DR penalty application is a sport destroying tool while speed faults are onerous but objective and not subjectively applied, so the lesser of two evils.

    It is sad to...

    Glad this is a current thread.

    Question: would there be any interest in purchasing PLANS for jumps like chevrons, etc.?

    Another question: would you buy a pre-made chevron and have it shipped to...

    It's nice to hear from those who are there. I'm sorry I can't go, because they are very interesting usually and very entertaining!

    I doubt they will do anything concrete about this at the...

    Stalls sometimes are available from the Name Riders who go south for the winter. They are temporary though. Everyone really like the Ransehousens and my friend Bornfreenowexpensive here on the board...

    This sounds like a coordination issue of some sort. Why not have your vet pull some blood and test for things like Lymes and EPM?

    The slipping will cause the problem. I'd stay out of the corners...
