    My two that are left here are about 16 hands - one is maybe 16 1/2. I think they'll mature around 16.1 and 16.2, give or take an inch either way.

    To me, confirmed means they are happening as expected in a show environment! So confirmed means the judges are giving them 7s (or better).
  3. I'd also clarify (because I see this happen at...

    I'd also clarify (because I see this happen at shows) - they need to ask show management how close they can walk their horses near the arena! Show arenas are CLOSED to competitors, you can not go...

    I think it is an incredible pair - the horse has a lot of tension but also a lot of natural cadence - I suspect he is very hot. Gal is really good at working with the hot horse - my guess, give him...

    You might also ask a saddle repair shop if they can put in a larger knee/thigh roll? I agree, you have to ride several times to decide if it is comfortable - I can generally tell within 2 minutes...

    Then I'd look first at trainers - narrow it down to the trainers you are interested in, then decide which are in an "acceptable" location:lol:

    And I am pretty sure they don't allow flash? I thought I read that somewhere, although I may be wrong. Agree, it will be hard to get pics - especially without the heads in front of you ;-)

    Agree, get a work up. And consider exercises - NO impact. I use pilates for core building and stretching. I tried chiropractic and it just wasn't helping, but pilates gave me the ability to get...

    Totally agree that I also hated the high rise breeches - I am also short waisted. So the old high rise came right up to my bra. Why can't we just have REGULAR rise - why the extremes? And why not...

    A CDS recognized show means it is recognized by the GMO - it is, in reality (according to USEF and USDF) still a "schooling show". CDS recognizes the results for qualifying for our Championship...

    Forget the gaping at the back - what about my muffin top spilling over? For those of us who are middle aged and work hard to maintain some semblance of fitness, but have accepted we will never be 30...

    Are you looking for a show circuit? If so, look carefully at the choices - some places have nice Winter weather, but not much of a show circuit. If you are looking for CDI level shows, your other...

    You know, there are a lot of schooling show "Fix a Test" clinics out there - it is entirely possible Axel was doing one of those. Just a thought before we dismiss Sunset's post in its entirety?

    Downhill (which I think of as stifle higher then elbow) is an issue not just with stock breeds, but also many Tbreds, and SOME Warmbloods. So, long and low will not solve the issue - that is fine...

    I'm no expert in jumpers, but I've personally seen several sloping croups that were GP jumpers. Several people posted links to horses with sloping croups that are GP (and in most cases,...

    So, I am not a jumper, nor have I ever bred for jumping - dressage is my thing, so forgive my lack of knowledge in your sport of choice. But I do understand math! So - if these horses who are doing...

    Counter canter is introduced at First level - it is a balancing exercise. Simple changes require a high degree of collection to be done well. I'm surprised how many people here think they are easy,...

    Vet in this area that specializes in lameness told me one of the studies they did on the track followed race horses that toed in, toed out, and were "straight", and found those who toed in stayed...

    Oh, statistics are great, really. But I don't think you can boil it down to statistics. Because they only provide you with numbers and trends - you still have to use a lot of judgment to interpret...

    I generally shop on my own. The last horse I purchased with the help (and urging) of my (ex) trainer turned out to be the biggest disaster I ever owned!

    One of the best horses I EVER owned was...

    I just don't think it is an effective ad - I think the Equine Repro people have some great horses and are known for good service - this ad doesn't emphasize either of those. It is kind of tacky...

    Not saying any of these horses had sabino - but sabino can "hide" - minimal markings one generation, then loud markings pop up. I had one - stallion was sabino, but you'd never know it without...

    Yes, insurance companies (like any business) are in it for profit. So if it is cheaper to do surgery, then that is the route they will push you. And in my case, it was a University surgeon who also...
