    This gets me wondering...would it be beneficial for USEA to poll actively competing members regarding lower level courses and what they prefer/what their goals are? We can speculate what some ammy's...

    Auburn - I completely agree! Cathy is an excellent CD, forgot to add her!

    Honestly, I don't think it's the "questioning" or trying to figure out what's going on with the scores that is upsetting...it's the fact that saying someone's test "sucked" just isn't necessary. ...

    A coffin traditionally has 3 elements (A,B,C), the first one is a jump in, then 1-2 strides to a ditch, then 1-2 strides to a jump out. The "coffin canter" is required so the horse can read the...

    I really like this perspective and have to agree. At the BN/N level we should not be seeing so many difficult elements. At an event this February, the BN XC had a related bending line to a half...

    Thanks for sharing! My local Eventing Assn. has considered having Doug come teach a clinic but no one has had any direct experience with him. This is helpful :)

    The US lists have had "talent spotting" for several years now...not a new concept. There were several named to lists this spring that were talent spotted on.

    You can always adjust the mortality amount, even to 15K on an older horse would make the premium significantly less.

    Yep, and stabling=$$$. Just glancing at the Fork fees, the Advanced ran $475 including stabling and the 3 star was $575...

    Even some of our "local" events are $300+ for N/T levels.

    Ah, but some events don't have "assigned" SJ times, and the ring stewards pressure riders to go from warmup to the in-gate, even when there are 5+ horses milling around there already! This has...

    In the Midwest, it's not uncommon to hear a duck caller used as the dressage test "bell" :) horses don't seem to mind it!

    I agree on the loose dog issue - I bring 2 leashed dogs that go nuts when...

    My .02 - don't take a ton of pictures of horses cantering/trotting through the water! The only exciting thing about water is a drop in. Same goes for ditch pictures, many horses just step over. ...

    I have used a 2-ring elevator with happy mouth on several strong horses with much success. The trick that I like to use is to add a "control strap", which is basically a piece of leather like a...

    I really like riding at Hoosier Horse Park in general, as the XC fence design leans more towards traditional gallopy fences than upright brightly painted ones. The water is bigger across than many,...

    FRVPC is a good move up, did it there last year for horse's 1st training and plan to use it again this year for a different horse.

    Silverwood can have odd SJ courses and is in a long narrow ring. ...

    I love my Wildkart Jin Stirrups...they are expensive but worth it IMHO. Super lightweight, great support and less ankle/calf fatigue.

    I like them too, but think the shoulder protector part is a bit odd looking - is there a way to remove those?

    A good friend of mine happily told me that our trainer "didn't fear for her safety today" in a lesson on her spicy mare!

    I find it helpful to ride a lot of lateral movements in my warmup with all types of horses - gives both me and the horse something to focus on rather than nerves, etc.

    Then when you get in the...

    I am planning to do the 28 day tx regimen but the website will only let me order 100 packets...

    I'd prefer to buy someone's extras instead!

    Please PM me.

    Thanks!
