    I'm poor and have decent hair but I don't ride very well.

    Checkmate: Meupatdoes

    Yes, the Kesslers are wealthy and yes, they have worked hard and yes, Reed is a talented rider (with great hair.)...

    The Smart-Pak catalog I just looked at showed Volants on what appeared to be a showhunter. I thought it odd and untraditional myself.

    "Great broodmare prospect" = "Lame Mare" (or "Crazy Mare," we don't want to ride her!)

    I also love ads professing a horses prowess or potential as a hunter who are shown in video in dressage tack,...

    I don't joke about snow. It is not a laughing matter. I did get a bit of sun yesterday and today, just in time to put my parka on tomorrow.

    Marcus is a lovely rider and perhaps more "forward" than most Europeans. I like that he appears very soft in his hand and arm. I do think that many German riders do seem to ride with a long rein...

    I'm no expert but I agree that she seems to be battling her ingrained inclination to ride in a forward seat. Several times she lightened her seat, only to return to the tack. Along with sitting more...

    Timex, is it still snowing? I drove by on the highway last week so you may have noticed some flurries.

    I love "extensive show record, great ribbons!" etc and the video shows the horse jumping badly, in a kimberwicke over a crossrail formed by a garden rake, a pitchfork and two plastic lawn chairs.

    You should do well with Medallist.

    As to the Ribot issue and temper, it seems that "difficult" sires often have a few sons who don't inherit or pass on the temper. His Majesty was known for siring...

    Ponysize, that is a bit crazy, but as Janet said, there may have been other stuff going on ie: she was currently a shammy. Don'tknow but that is a guess.

    OP: If you are accepting remuneration for...

    Sure there were classes I could do, but as I mentioned, I was jumping about 3' and had I bought, I'd have been looking to do the amateur divisions. Obviously that would have been out (at least for a...

    I know a person who makes a living flipping TB's. With track experience and a willingness to SELL and not get attached, they do OK. Since they act only on their own behalf, they are non pro but if...

    I was a member of our local affiliate, which defers to USEF on certain issues, among them the Ammy Rule. I'm sure that at the affiliate level it is not uncommon. I was taking my one lesson a week and...

    I fully understand why that part of the rule is there. I refer to it as the "bookkeeper clause" because barns were hiring "bookkeepers" who rode 8 horses a day. The point is that the way it stands, a...

    If said person is once a week help but is offered a chance to hack a boarder's horse, she is suddenly a pro. A few years ago I was taking lessons on a horse that was "in for training" after a year in...

    I think the point was that it is a bit "odd" that a person can make a living buying, training and selling horses and be an amateur while the rider who mucks stalls one day a week is automatically a...

    He has probably figured out that the swap helps him make up for the long spot, since he might take a bigger step when he swaps. You don't have much time but I'd try to see if there is a way to keep...
