    Let's also put it out there that Buck is not a small-framed person, and carries weight in a way that's not ideal for riding or tumbling through the air. He's had to work considerably harder at...

    The only things the collective 'we' of eventing should be asking of our riders is to respect the welfare of the horse and the rules of the sport.

    Buck was being stupid all of his own volition, and...

    We're all big in Japan. Or maybe it's just that Mio has a big following among bots.

    I was with you until the part about getting home at 9:15p. Simply not believable.

    If you're having fun at Prelim, just keep going. Dressage scores aren't worth the paper they're written on. :)

    What matters is how training at home shows up as success in XC and SJ. That's the...

    Oh dear. My horse at the top of the page. An old thread resurrected.

    This is what greets me when I check in from Mexico City. Maybe I should have brought Mio along -- he wouldn't look skinny...

    Beijing was just 'awarded' the 2022 Winter Games. The snow-making equipment is starting up as I write this.

    Hopefully, this will be the death knell for this feeding frenzy of greed, corruption...

    JP60, just saw this write-up on water 'quality' in Rio: Athletes at Rio Olympics to compete in 'basically raw sewage'.

    No, I'm actually not very smart. It's like how on the internet, no one knows you're a dog. My thing is passing for an intelligent human.

    The writer of that article, Andrew Jennings, is the key man in all of these exposes. Jennings started out many years ago (he's in his 70s now) investigating police corruption, organized crime, and...

    Today, heat index was through the roof, so I went out early and took Fat Meat With Mane for a forty-minute walk. Then I hosed him down and put him back out.

    Icabad Crane earned $585,980 on the track.

    $585,980.

    Don't you think some of that money should go to 'funding his career'?

    He was one of the nicest horses I've ever seen. Just so athletic.

    The Guinness family deserves a lot of credit and thanks for breeding a horse like Tamarillo.

    Mine is Friesian-KWPN-Arab-ASB. So no draft blood, but mysteriously large feet. I think his Arab-ASB genes help with his natural endurance (he is tireless) and thermoregulation.
