    I can't speak to riding and med school, but I rode and competed through the 2star level while in law school. I rode and conditioned at 5:30 a.m. so that the rest of the day was spent on classes,...

    Ditto this. My Dehners are almost 18 years old and have never even been resoled. I sent them back to get gussets put in last summer and it cost me 100 bucks. Fully lined Dehners are the way to go....

    I have ridden in both, although it has been a few years. When I was trying them, I took both out on xc even though I had already ridden around an Intermediate HT in someone else's Chiberta. The...

    I have had my guy since he was 5 and we have done over 60 HT/CICs at Prelim and up as well as 6 CCIs LF.

    Now at 22, I take him around at Training level and was going to do the 1/2 star on him this...

    Sorry I have to disagree with this one. My two star horse was (well is even more now at 21) incredibly swaybacked and never had a single issue with his back over 11 seasons at prelim and above. As...

    I find it a bit odd that a mother and daughter combo are managing directors of eventing and show jumping. Not to say they both are not qualified for their jobs (I am sure they are, don't know either...

    I think I am the one who initially derailed the thread. I agree with everything BFNE said and that is why I was a bit surprised to see BN riders with watches.

    This was how I learned to feel pace,...

    I just went BN this weekend for the first time in 20 years and I noticed that the 3-4 horses that went before and after me, just like the young one I was riding, were barefoot behind. Not a single...

    It is a personal preference thing but I prefer using vetwrap to Saratogas because the saratogas get a bit heavy when they get wet in my opinion (I have used both). I know using vetwrap gets a little...

    I agree with this and looked at a fair number of these schools. The one issue with going to school directly in DC is that you would likely have a really long trek to the barn. I lived in Georgetown...

  18. Maryland Saddle Shows Attire for Jumper Classes?

    I was thinking of taking a greenie to do the 2'6"-2'9" jumpers at the August 14 show. Do I need to wear my jacket or can I get away with a polo? It has been awhile since I have been to an H/J show...

    It is expensive, I said that in my previous post. This sport is expensive at the upper levels, period. Doesn't matter if a kid is doing NAYRC or not.

    Just to clarify, I didn't say "parents with...

    I agree that they should push back the * age limit to 21. I remember the days when the only option was the ** (* wasn't even added til the mid 90's). But I disagree that you have to have an...
