    I rode until about 4.5 months pregnant. I was feeling really great and had a super easy pregnancy up to that point. Then I went to a show and after a day of unpacking and warming up some horses (no...

    Also, regional standard has easier course requirements in terms of combinations. So, lower jumps than national standard and generally an easier track.

    Sorry, but I strongly disagree... Low level jumpers should have courses that are straight forward, simple and inviting. You should not have ridiculous turns, sharp bending lines, difficult...

    I call it the "high ch/ad jumper phenomenon"... Where those riders, who previously tore around the jumpers at Mach 3, now have to slow down or eat dirt. Most seem to choose to eat dirt.

    Quite...

    Meh, I stopped feeling bad for all of the "underprivileged talented kids" when I saw what little work ethic most have. I have had some that turn their nose up at having to ride something a little...

    I ride young horses almost exclusively and I can't say how much I hate rubber/plastic mouth pieces- I really,really dislike them. They are generally bulky, give a "muddled" feeling on the reins (not...

    My oversized bridle came in and fit my 16.3h holsteiner mare pretty well. She is over 1500lbs and has a massive block head. The only part that was a little big was the brow band. I couldn't imagine...

    I've had some where I've made a good profit and some that I sell at a loss. Above all else, it HAS to have a good brain. Anything that is remotely difficult/complex/spooky, is a really tough sale....

    According to one of my handouts from a USEF judges clinic last year, complete loss of sight in either eye may be found serviceably sound at the judges discretion, except in a class over fences where...

    I'm from Tulsa (and know most of the trainers there) and would recommend Amanda Eggleston.

    Simple rule of thumb: It's far better to be overdressed than underdressed, especially if you are a professional.

    Most pros are typically dressed appropriately but I will say, at the AA show I was...

    Just wondering, how common is it for breeders to do their own ultrasounds and repro work?

    Thanks, just wondering if it would be worth it. Currently I mainly get clients via word-of-mouth references. However, we are working on greatly expanding our business in these next few years (we...

    I charge a flat fee per day which includes training, local hauling and day care. Any pro rides are additional, hotel/RV and tack stall fees are split and out of town hauling is an additional per mile...

    Would a trainer that has gone through a European training program (like the German trainer licensing) be more attractive to breeders seeking young horse training (as opposed to someone without any...

    When talking about adding strides, it becomes an issue of "best of the worst" type scenario. No, there is no reason why any modestly athletic horse going a decent pace couldn't do the strides (and...

    For me, I typically give scores in the 60s for adding in lines and in the 50s for adding in the in-and-out. Every judge is a little different but that is pretty normal (and what they teach at USEF...

    For those saying that its not so bad because the video was to show off the rider... Do you think drugging a horse for an equitation class at a show is also okay? Most colleges are fairly competitive...

    I actually do have some clients with very small budgets. With those that cannot afford to pay for professional rides, I do it for free (if its just once or twice) or in trade for stall cleaning, etc....

    To each their own. I personally have never had a horse that wasn't quieted down with suitable amounts of hand walking. But it's difficult to compare- every horse is different, every injury is...

    As far as rehab- I would sedate for hand walking but not for riding. But that's just me. When we have been dealing with horses coming off stall rest, we start with hand walking in a controlled manner...

    Keep searching for a new barn. There ARE hunter/jumper barns out there who don't medicate (at shows or at home). Your other option would be to board at a dressage or eventing barn and haul to H/J...
