    Ha! I need to take this over to the H/J forum where I was told that standing martingales are just because they "like the look" but not about fitting in :lol:

    Have you tried alternate search terms, such as kimblewick and mullen mouth?

    Disagree. You say you don't need one but you like the look, so you use one, and "many others do." If it's just for looks then we're basically talking about fashion and fitting in.

    And apropos, the newest "most popular" article on the right of this page is titled "Lead Changes and Potty Training".

    This is a great thought. Do you have anyone in mind? I guess an easy way to start would be to look at the Talent Squad and Long List for the past year or two.

    Maybe she became a grandmother and the wonders of baby poop had to be explored all over again...

    I know, and it's unfortunate that it has come to that.

    <about to commit a sin>

    Wouldn't it be great if horses who didn't need martingales could show without them without fear of not fitting in?

    <ducks and covers>

    Interesting question, I didn't realize some people thought of this so differently. Mind you, I don't have any kids...!

    I have 3 and ride 2 others. I do find the longer I own them (into their...

    To further Jealoushe's point, the "Regulars" are riding developing horses, so 2* is not their final goal. They are often "green to the level" and there is more risk with that type of horse than an...

    You can take courses online. Try googling. I know our Horse Council of BC has free "Equine Online Learning".

    Photos are REQUIRED when posting about this level of cuteness.

    Oh but he's cute!

    I wasn't shopping at all and ended up with an unbroke 4 year old pony. This is why you should not attend horse auctions with horsey friends. She didn't just enable me... she...

    I always thought the speed-dating concept was flawed.

    But maybe not. I generally have a vibe about someone right away - but how does that match up with the story on this thread about the...

    Went out with a winner a couple weeks ago. We did the "job interview" stuff for about 20-30 minutes, got that out of the way and started talking a bit more about interests and current topics....

    This is always what gets me about the American health care "system"... the health we're born with (and often struck with at times during life) is entirely due to luck. Many don't appreciate this in...

    Winding Down, while I don't agree with all your points, it is good to hear another side. And I do agree that these horses are having "first world problems".

    Both horses ran Rolex and most of WEG. That's the two 4* in a year that many from the "good ol' days" would propound. And with many saying that you have to condition as much for the short format as...

    Yeah I had the same thoughts when I saw this headline this morning. Both horses retired XC because they were exhausted. August 30th was XC. So this is 3 weeks later. Not a HT but a CIC3*. Seems like...

    I try to be there but also train the horses to stand for the farrier in case I can't be. I'll leave them in or near the barn so they are quick and easy for the farrier to catch/tie and work with. I...

    I should maybe add a little. It's mostly the term "heart horse" that bothers me, followed by its overuse, then inappropriate behaviour based on the term. Not the actual fact of whether a horse &...

    My Mum called me one day and said, "Are you ok?"
