    Just because a judge writes a negative comment about appearance on the score sheet does not mean the rider was docked points for it. Just the same as when the judge writes elegant turnout or...

    Thanks...I loved that! People can look like they choose, but I'll make one comment about pony tails. When I am watching a horse sales tape and the rider has a swinging pony tail, it is very...

    Apologies, but I have to ask. My thinking is that if a show is not a licensed USEF show, then it is a Schooling Show. Is a CDS Show some kind of special show? A CDS show doesn't count for HOY,...

    Nothing. I don't have a problem with the video, with his words, nor with him. All I'm doing (I regret it:)) is supporting Chisamba's statement which was correct.

    I don't know why anyone goes to...

    Crockpot, I think the poster's reason for posting that video was to show that at around 1:47 Axel says "try to find that working trot".

    Not in a million years. I wouldn't even drive the 9 hours in my personal rig. I would van commercially in an air ride van in a box stall if I absolutely 'had' to get my horses somewhere. But a...

    He was scheduled to judge a dressage show on March 14 at the San Capistrano Chapter @ Sycamore Trails. I'm pretty sure it was a schooling show.

    Here's an aerial photo of one boarding facility in Tuscon. I don't know if they are all like this, but I'm guessing the turnout is more like a dry lot.

    I also think the rule is made primarily to prevent sandbagging. And I disagree with you that it is silly. It's a distinct advantage for a lower level rider to ride a lower level test on a confirmed...

    Deena's Mom specifically asked to see a horse 'at liberty' showing the front hoof landing ahead of where the nose points. It has been shown. DM said it was physically impossible. Is she wrong or...

    I have several.

    The reason I like these double bridle bits is not only because they are thin, but because they...

    For licensed shows, the Masters Awards include both AA and Pro. They are for age 60 and over. I haven't looked recently at who wins these awards, but the last time I did it was real 'masters' like...

    Yes, one shot every 4 days for 28 days. That is what is written on their site and with the packaging information. I am really curious about what is written on your label. If I were you, I would...

    I don't think burgundy looks good on a chestnut at all. Orange and purple? I don't think it looks good on a bay either. It looks good on black, grey, buckskin. Personally, I don't like to wear...

    Could his back be some of the problem? Hock and stifle problems create back problems, rather than the other way around (usually). Your comment about the vet having trouble getting the needle in the...

    I think stifle as well. She is hiking behind. She may also have front feet problems. Often, there are several things going on.
