    I absolutely love the tops of the new ones. I HATE the ankle/foot. It looks clunky, like a big insulated winter boot. Unlike what someone mentioned above, field boots are not necessary for the...

    Or, she's riding him in a giant bit with a ton of hand and sitting hard on his back, so he's falling out behind. The horse is used to going forward to the jumps with his nose poked, not manhandled in...

    Now, the gray coat with red lining would have been totally in! I have a small collection of different colored coats with fun lining colors.

    I do wonder if black was out because it wasn't such a...

    Black was not just "out of style," but a full-on hunter fashion faux pas until ~4-5 years ago when they started making beautiful black plaid coats. But from sometime in the 80's until about 2009 or...

    It's been a few years since I lived there, but you are probably looking at about $1k in board, and another $750 or so in training. Many barns don't do partial training, but full training will also...

    I love and have worn french blue and sage green coats in the hunters in the past couple of years (and for many years before that) with colored shirts. Not sure why everyone thinks you can only wear...

    I agree. I have seen some very hot/jumpery Sir Caletto offspring out of hunter mares, in addition to the beautiful hunters he throws. Cunningham has also had some big jumper types. I love the...

    I was also going to suggest Delgrange- they make a couple of lovely deeper-seated jumping saddles that are going to be softer than a Passier.

    I think you are doing a really nice job with him. I disagree with the person who said he looked better in the first video- while he is more forward, he is definitely dragging himself along. I think...

    For one-off training rides paid a la carte, the horse should be ridden by the trainer or assistant. If you are in a training program, something like "2 lessons/3 rides per week" or "horse gets...

    Haven't been to the shows so can't speak to the courses, but I boarded at Stonegate for a couple of years, up until this past summer. The farm is now leased by a new manager. Both the indoor and...

    Thank you, JER, for being the voice of reason.

    GAeventer, you are a jerk. While it may not have been what you would do, until you are in the exact situation and have all the necessary information...

    Sometimes I think the internet is the worst thing that has happened to society.

    People on these forums have often called for users to post with their real names, in hopes that it would reduce...

    I'm totally with you on the half-stride issue, as well as not knowing how far away I am, but can intuitively "see" what I need to do to get to the appropriate distance for the fence from probably 5...

    Hahahahaha weirdest response ever. Can't wait to see the update.

    He has a long scapula that ties in to withers set well behind the point of the elbow, coupled with a short upright humerus and a decently long forearm. Plus, he stands a little "over" his front end...

    I think he's really cute and have had my eye on his ad for a while. I'm kind of amazed at all the pronouncements of him not being fancy, based on two crappy conformation shots standing crooked on...

    Thanks BFNE, found it, and agree she looks much better. I had one who sometimes powered himself off the ground and forgot about his hind end as a baby- he now finishes his jump so well behind he...

    Ditto on a similar injury... horse went down, and on his way back up smashed my face with his neck, broke my nose and did serious damage to the soft tissue in my mouth. I wish he had hit the brim...

    It doesn't work in the jumper ring. She's going to have to jump 2' over the top of everything, which is a dicey proposition at 1.20+ with related distances. That said, it may be a green thing, and...

    Actually, if you have a lot of money from a using all your brain power and time on your work, it makes perfect sense to outsource the things you don't need/want to do yourself to experts.

    I agree that they sit a little on the small side. My 17.5 Palm Beach feels smaller than the same size flat seat in CWD and Devoucoux.

    Completely agree. He is super nice, a very good mover, with a great shoulder for jumping. He's also not light boned at all, IMO, for a just-turned 3yo.

    He also looks sane, which combined with...
