    Sevendogs,

    Why don't YOU offer to take the horse? Easy to sit behind a screen name and say horrible things about someone who is, I am sure, in a very low place in her life. So, YOU be the person...

    As someone who had to make a decision to euthanize a horse who was in severe pain just this past February, I have learned what it feels like to be in such a position, and I will NEVER second guess...

    Now that x/c day is over, I guess my thread should have been titled "Why are foreign riders so good?"

    The top 7 places are all taken by riders who learned their trade outside the US. And the...

    Possibly the horse WAS bought this afternoon and the new owners do not want it to be show jumped. It certainly did eveyrthing right; on the jumps I saw it did not do anything wrong to hurt itself.

    What a great course. By rough count 6 jumped double clear, 31 had no jumping faults (approx 1/3 of the total) and every rider and horse ended the day safe.

    Quite an accomplishment for any course...

    When you say "sales barn", I think you really mean a hunter stable whose trainer is one of the "good guys", honesty-wise and dealings-wise. Barns which only sell horses will not get you top dollar...

    For those riders who winter in Ocala, just down the road is HITS, Ocala. They have every height of jumper classes, many in the GP stadium, and the rest in the old stadium.

    No trial, especially on a very green horse. You have no idea what their feeding/turnout stabling conditions are. You also have no idea what kind of trainer and how good a rider she is.

    Hmmmm, the PEMF is interesting. Sounds similar to my TENS unit when I have it on the "pulse" setting. It sure does relax my muscles, and it interferes with pain signals getting to my brain.
