What area of the country do you live in?
Who's going? Seems like I meet COTHers here every year. WM is heading down today and will be showing Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday - would love to meet people.*
*I should clarify that this...
I didn't think that "serviceably sound" meant "obviously lame behind to the point of headbobbing."
Huh. Learn something every day...
I polish my boots regularly. I usually do a coat of Kiwi, but then I do 2 coats of Lincoln on top of the Kiwi - it adds a glossiness that I've never gotten with the Kiwi, plus the Lincoln doesn't...
I will say that there's at least 1 within the top 10 who, IMO, should not have gotten a score because of unsoundness.
There are some within the top 10, but I'm not going to throw any kids under the bus and name names.
Whoa. :lol: I'm assuming there's supposed to be a hyphen there.
I'm 5'1" and about 100 lbs... I wear a kids' 12 in the TS schooling breeches (the cotton ones), or a 24 in Equine Couture.
Lots of lame horses in the eq this morning... shame on the trainers, riders, and, frankly, on the judges for scoring horses that are clearly off.
Sorry guys, I forgot to update this at the end of Maffitt.
We had a rail down in the prix to wind up in 9th. It was a mini-prix and only 1.35m, and my issue was that Nikki doesn't respect the...
USEF Network says streaming starts the 27th, which is tomorrow. There are archived videos from last year up right now, but nothing live from CC until tomorrow.
I can't see the link, it says I have to log in on a Yahoo site.
4 holes sounds like a lot, even if your stirrups were long on the flat... I ride with long stirrups on the flat, but I only put them...
I would go! :)
Why this dad didn't vaccinate.
The truth lives on!
Also, I have to throw my hands in the air when people have conniptions about the Gardasil shots... everyone wants a cancer vaccine, scientists...
That just seems so wrong to me... that you can place in or even win a final with a refusal. :no:
He was 5th with a refusal in the gymnastics phase?
Someone please tell me I'm reading that wrong.
You don't believe in shingles?
Oh boy, you'd better hope that shingles never believes in you... because it is PAINFUL as all hell, apparently. I'm too young to know from personal experience, but...
I think you greatly overestimate people knowing me beyond the COTH forums... and I can assure you that the USHJA has no interest in hearing from me - I don't have a lot of money, nor am I a member of...
Trying to explain the concept of a horse of a lifetime/heart horse to someone who hasn't experienced that is like trying to explain color to a blind person or sound to a deaf person.
What the heck happened to AA, A, B, and C?
Is this the kind of stuff that our USHJA fees go toward? Changing names of things?
They're trying to make a show that's going to be as special as showing at The Garden was, and I don't think that's going to happen.
I just wore a brand new pair of boots all day long.
This was not a good decision.
However, they are fairly soft leather and have already dropped about 1/4". They are Sergio Grassos.
^Although to be fair to some shows, the welcome may actually be a national standard class - I know at Old Salem, their welcome stake is a $25k national standard prix, and then the weekend prix is...
Nikki jumps double clean to place 2nd in the welcome stake at Maffitt.
She also "won" the open yesterday... except I was the only one in it LOL but she did jump a clear round!
It really depends on the leather.
My La Mundials are really soft leather, and they actually dropped too much - they dropped about 2 inches. I'm looking into buying a new pair of boots because the...
I'm going to add to the confusion a little more, because why not?
National standard prixs have to give a minimum of $25,000 in prize money. A class that offers lower than that cannot be...
