    As breeders, trainers, and young horse developers, we price our horses fairly to start with and expect to get our asking price. We're more likely to go UP than down - our horses are actively...

    I believe that Diana Rich rode a QH at Rolex 20 years or so ago.

    IMO, somethingroyal is the key, not secretariat. We've competed lots of sir Gaylord horses - including an Irish one or two - but they tend to be hot!
  5. Very common, just work through it.

    Very common, just work through it.

    9 y.o. prospects are not highly sought. At that age, they need to have a track record.

    When competition, opportunity, and activities are considered, I'd look closely at major urban locations in Area IV.

    French Legionnaire sired our Advanced/*** horse. He was known locally for siring horses with jump.

    Hell yes! That price? Hell no! You can buy an excellent walking horse here in Kentucky for $500, and for $2000 you've got a world beater (flat shod, trail).

    I grew up gaited, didn't learn to...

    Yes, once, with positive outcome. Older mare (more frequent, IMO), no retained placenta. We vetted, medicated, etc., but (again IMO) I believe the earlier you diagnose, and the earlier you get the...

    We have several Hilltop babies and Hilltop have always been very professional, courteous, and helpful. Highly recommended.

    Breeding is a crapshoot, particularly with some in the industry (we just...

    Give notice, shake hands and/or hug (whichever is appropriate) with a smile, and remain friends. Don't feel guilty - if you're not satisfied, I'll give 100 to 1 odds that she's not either. And...

    You do not need to pay khp entrance fee to go to barns. You will pay parking unless you're in the campground and enter the back way.

    Just enjoy. Ribbons don't matter, judge's opinion doesn't matter, score doesn't matter. What DOES matter is that you compete safely, take care of your horse, and work hard to improve every time...

    Given the right circumstances, we do - all the way from weanlings (now running I/P as an 8 year old) through 3 y.o.'s (turned out with his age group, to start this fall). But the horse must be...

    Many/most here in the Lexington area are prebuilt by pros, trucked in & set. We've bought 3 and love them - highly recommended if you get a knowledgeable pro. But obviously they'll be more...

    Concur with the ISH recommendation. 3/4 TB on IDH are frequently ideal eventers. You've got several recommendations here, but be aware that they're hard to find in the US. Also be careful not to...

    Yep, I do it all the time. But only under supervision (when I'm home) and only for relatively short periods of time. It's hell on the shrubs and the grass.

    Hope everyone recognizes the subtle beauty of eventing in LAZ's post. Even tho we compete, we're also a family. Lee Ann just gave everyone on the board a pretty darn complete listing of her local...

    Good discussion! Use what works for you, not what someone else does. 25+ years ago I went to several weekend clinics when John Lyons was just becoming national. What I learned was invaluable - but...

    While they're babies, they're not very trainable. They do need habituation, but you can teach them in 2 minutes at 3 years old what it takes weeks at 6 months. And then you have the schizophrenic...

    Thanks, Lee Anne. Has all the snow mellowed you? (JK)

    One caution - the market is hotter than mexican enchiladas right now and has been for 6-12 months. We sold 3 last month.

    Every horse/rider combination is different, so you'll have to decide the proper activities/rate. But here's what I'd suggest, adapt to your needs - everyone has their own style:

    We don't look at just stud fee, our cost/value analysis is total cost (for the foal, not just the fees) versus potential value of the foal. Frequently the equation says "buy a 3 year old."
