    I just have to say - you are not the person working under your horse, risking a foot in the head or face. I would consider it dangerous! If your horse does not behave for the farrier, then you...

    I agree, start with schooling shows where it will be mostly lower level - Intro - First level is MUCH easier then 2nd on up. Some shows won't take inexperienced scribes at their rated shows.

    I...

    When I went, yes, there were a lot of vendors. Mostly high end, out of my price range ;)

    There is some difference in quality of leather and quality of tree. Much of it is due to the time and workmanship too. There CAN be a lot of "human time" into making a saddle. Part of it is just...

    There are a few in Europe. I've seen a few here in the US, and quite a few Andalusian/Tbred crosses. MOST of the ones I've seen (live and in person) have retained the Andalusian tightness in the...

    I don't think her head will grow a lot, but you never know. I wouldn't worry about it too much, I don't think it looks awful? The shorter mouth and shorter head is not uncommon in the Friesian...

    Those are all valid upper level trainers - but I don't think they have schoolmasters available. Especially BOMB PROOF. Why do you need an upper level horse for a walk-only lesson? Many mid-level...

    I guess we just didn't get out of the touristy area - if you want to do anything on the strip, you need to stay on the strip (shudder), hahahaha... The parking lot is almost a half mile of walking,...

    I think they do the jumping at night because it is more popular - jumping will most likely sell out, dressage won't. When I went, they sold individual day tickets towards the end - freestyles were...

    He is a young, very green horse. I think he's ridden a bit too "tight" for a horse this young, but otherwise, I think the trot and canter are decent, considering where he is in his training - VERY...

    Personally, I wouldn't. I prefer my purple breeches at schooling shows :D And I'm saving up to buy matching purple boots for My Little Pony.

    Oh, not my horse - I don't have a Vanner, but I know the owner :winkgrin: I'll admit, I enjoy seeing the "underdogs" do well;)
  15. Totally agree! It also makes it easier if you...

    Totally agree! It also makes it easier if you sell the horse later on, that his USEF record and show record stays intact. Cadence was recorded under 3 different variations of his name - and I've...

    Hahaha, I am planning on going, but no Motel 6 for me, I'm going to turn it into a vacation. Already lined up my barn sitter! I went the first year it was in LV - it was quite the event - Ed Gal on...

    Check out DevonWood in Sherwood (just outside of Portland). Jessica Rattner has a great reputation and the facility is awesome.

    Hey, how about a Gypsy Vanner taking 3rd at Third Level T1 in a class with 7 Warmbloods and two Andalusians? And the top 3 were all within a half percent of each other? I think she won the class...

    Goes in sale to general public when? I wish they'd say! I hate Las Vegas, but it is close enough to make it worth the trip ;)

    Stretchy circle at Training Level has been around forever - and I agree, it does NOT belong in Training Level. For so many reasons. And it is often not executed well. I've seen everything from...

    A friend told me to never repeat a successful cross, I'll just be disappointed. Sometimes true, sometimes not. My current riding horse (who I LOVE) is a repeat. She is almost identical to her...

    If you really read their website carefully, most of their horses are "ELIGIBLE" for AWS. That doesn't make them AWS. By the way, I loved the quote that they don't sell USED horses.

    OTOH, at...

    Absolutely agree, and would add... In this market, a performance horse has MUCH more value then a broodmare, so more and more of "the best" are headed toward performance where they develop a better...

    I see a lot of fancy young horses and top riders out at Tr/First level? My GMO even runs a "Futurity" competition for young Tr and First level horses at Annual Championships. We see some really...

    My mare was on rehab for over a year (torn medial collateral), then several months doing nothing much because her owner was also on rehab. I brought her back carefully - she was on "full release" to...
