    I don't know. That ponytail is so distracting.

    It's funny that people keep bringing up Bonfire, because I was never a big fan of that horse. Although I admired his talent and success, I always found him unattractive. I wouldn't go so far as to...

    Haha! Too funny. Well there are pats and there are PATS (Edward never leg go of the rein). Was yours a pat or a PAT? If it happens again you should whip out a video and show it to the judge and say,...

    I have never heard of a patting penalty. :lol:


    ETA: Sorry, I didn't mean to be facetious. No, patting the horse is not penalized. Great trainers reward their horses even in the show ring, and...

    Yes, they were "rock and roll" shoes, not weighted shoes. Aluminum in fact.

    I wish this urban myth about Fuego's shoes would just die already. That type of shoe dates back to at least the 19th...
  8. I doubt your horse in heavy shoes moves with the...

    I doubt your horse in heavy shoes moves with the ease and elasticity of Zonic and the like. Heavy shoes do not do that for a horse.

    Besides, you can bet that they are not using weighted shoes on...

    Just for a fun comparison (and for those who think this sort of movement is made by heavy shoes and not bred in) here's Zonik's brother Sezuan:

    Gosh, I just think these two are so well matched. Leggy, elegant, elastic horse with leggy elegant rider. I can't wait to see how this develops. It looks like the horse may be in a weird "learning...

    That list is not accurate with regard to brand inspections, so I would not necessarily rely on the other information.

    Whether the simple change is "easy" or not...

    Whether the simple change is "easy" or not depends on how prepared your horse is to do them. In my opinion, they should be easy if you are prepared to show second level (well, duh, sort of an obvious...

    Congratulations! I hope this marks the start of a long, successful partnership with your mare that will build a collection of happy memories to look back upon.

    If people come here to learn, they can also have the opportunity to learn about correct use of grammar in their horse-related conversations.

    Or not. The choice is yours.

    There aren't more simple changes in the Test 1 -- each test has exactly two.

    To me, Test 3 is clearly more challenging than Test 1. It is a longer test, it includes travers, turn on the haunches...

    Thanks for the links. I enjoyed watching Carl's ride. Nice choice of music, from Lord of the Rings, I think?

    I also just watched one of the Para Dressage tests. I should hope to ride that well...

    We would GLADLY pay for it by the ton if anyone would SELL it by the ton. No one does. The hay market here is completely corrupt.

    Quality hay that does not cost a fortune does NOT exist in Colorado, so you can cross that one off your list.

    Some years, depending on weather, there is a lot of mountain hay produced but it is...

    Shoeing rules?

    What are you going to do, set a limit on the total weight of the shoeing package? How would you do that? What would a fair limit be? Wouldn't you have to set the limit...

    I never thought of Charlotte as bigger at 5'7" and 134 pounds, slightly taller than average with not very long limbs. How tall is Kathleen Raine? She looks quite a bit larger and longer-limbed than...

    I use Fig Newtons or for the one who hates those cookies I just cut a deep slit in a piece of carrot and stuff the 1/4 tablet in there. He also will eat them out of his grain but I prefer to put them...

    She found the seat that works for her body and her horse, so what's the difference whether she looks "plugged in" or "hovering"? Watch how the horse is going. That's the real story. It's not right or...

    I have not found the pour-in pads to be any more slippery than the shoes themselves, or shoes with other kinds of pads.
