    Just giving me my opinion. No, I'm not a judge. Have great respect for most of them. And it is not just about pinning, but about the psychological consequences on the rider. Good luck to all!

    Dear OP, you are probably very upset about this incident, and of course you have a right to be. Speaking from experience, I would council that if you or anyone in your family continues to horseshow...

    VXF111 from my experience you are correct. Only the NCAA teams pay attention to placings in those finals as they are looking to fill a team with accomplished riders, and are willing to overlook...

    The best riders in the world did not do big eq. Not to be confused with the best US riders. It is a money making enterprise for trainers. It is a beautiful discipline but not a necessary pathway to...

    So many good ones, of course Heritage is a great facility but I would prefer a smaller more specialized one like JT farm. Jim Toon has extensive knowledge and success with juniors and adults in the...

    I couldn't agree more with Warhol. Like I said some of these officials just get on their soapbox and it sounds so good. It's like the officials that write articles about how trainers should work...

    This rule is like what politicians say to appease the masses. It sounds good but it isn't. In fact it would lessen the quality of the riders. Competition is good. People come to shows like WEF to...

    Andre or Don and you should give them a call. They love to help people.

    Isn't it time to give this topic, rider and everyone involved a rest? It's like a movie repeating the same lines over and over.
