    Apparently all 40 horses and riders (including the one that didn't want to play) have come back safe and sound. There have been several mentions that the winner (who shall remain nameless in this...

    I may have formed this impression from one jump on a fuzzy live stream, but I've been watching Margie for 15-20 years both live and remotely. There is no question that she has been (and continues to...

    Big Time GP's

    I've had a wonderful time watching the GP's from Florida this winter, and the commentary has been enlightening. My main criterion for good commentary is that you can see what they're saying, and that...

    As the person who made the post that caused offense, most of those offended are just proving my point: Riding and showing low level hunters is being treated as entertainment rather than sport.

    Well, the difference between 4th was worth $100k, and 5th $75k. I might have kept going...

    Are they in a drag break now, or is Winter just taKing forever on the course?

    This must be quite the course...21 rounds, 3 clear , 1 @4 and 9 with more than 10.

    Now 4 of the last 6 retired? What's going on?

    Especially since most of the people I wanted to watch were in teh first 11 to go.

    Tradition is tough. But since little girls are wearing shadbellies with pigtails and jods, and black field boots are now the norm ( to the extent that people ask if it's OK to wear dress boots), why...

    I don't understand the Michael Hughes mystique. He had a rail in the first round, botched the walk and transition to trot in the second, and did the gentlest hand gallop in the final.
    I'm thinking...

    Love the no cell phone, walk the course on your own and judged warmup. But really, are these the tight standing martingale-jointed pelham-no release olympics? There are a few exceptions, of course......

    The people populating the sub 3' hunters at venues like WEF are a little different from most of us. As a group they are very successful in their non-horse lives. It's hard to convince them that...

    Plus jumpers are fun to do and politics/clothing/having the right BNT have nothing to do with how you are judged. Jumper competition meets the classical standard of sport: "Citius, altius.fortius."

    The "only" that i put in on skiing costs was a little tongue in cheek. On the other hand, compared to showing horses, it is cheap.
    I shipped myself in to my local AA show for two classes a couple...

    This discussion is leading me to a conclusion that I don't want to acknowledge. The industry I've been most involved with for the last 40 years is skiing. When I started out, most people went on ski...

    I don't know how the footing is. They usually have more trouble/injuries when the ground is fast.

    Mark Rashid usually does some clinics in New Hampshire. Check his website. I like the way he works with a horse.
