    I disagree here. You're not stuck. You mentioned earlier in your post what your gut was telling you. I think it's less that you're stuck and more that you're afraid of what it might mean to the dream...

    Trying to get in touch

    I'm hoping that the extensive knowledge of COTH can help me out with a situation I'm not sure what to do with.

    I live close to an OTTB re-homing center and it's the only one like it in my area. I...

    That was Bay My Hero, not Chilli Morning. WFP rode Chilli in the WEGs and "Moonie" at Burghley.

    Hi Chalie&Me, there are some places, but as the above posters stated, you're going to have to go to Suffolk, Williamsburg, Chesapeake, or VA Beach Pungo area. Norfolk is great, I've been living here...

    Whomever mentioned the announcer was Mark Kyle, that is incorrect. It is John Kyle, his brother. And john is making some very pointed comments asking why we are still watching the Spanish rider with...

    I can't wait to see how Ginny gets across this course. I don't think I've ever see her tired.

    Wow. I wasn't expecting that but he looked so tired. Poor Reggie.

    Thanks for posting this, OP. I'm finding it a great opportunity to watch the horses. When I see pros ride, they look so in tune with the horse, I don't really notice what the horse is doing. Here,...

    I left mine sitting sidewise in my hot car for about a month this summer. I wasn't really keen on cleaning tack at that point. Anyway, when I finally pulled it out again, the sponge is hanging out in...

    Hi Percy, I'm from Greensboro. My old trainer Cathy Schlaeppi is the IHSA coach at HPU. She is more a hunter/jumper type, but she does have a field with minimal XC jumps to just canter around. You...

    DC & PH - I really liked both your entries!

    DC: great analysis, straightforward, not sugar coating anything. Sometimes that frustrates me about the writing on EN, but I didn't notice it in your...

    I just saw this on Facebook and I'm a big believer in signs:

    Before you speak, let your words pass through three gates:

    1) Is it true?
    2) Is it necessary?
    3) Is it kind?

    I think if you...

    Yes, Willesdon, CMP does say that, but he's incorrect. You can view the scoring from the 2011 Eventing Championships and see that Sarah van Hasselt had a fall at the same fence as both riders CMP...

    As I mentioned in an earlier post, it's at least 4 falls in the last 3 years of competition. I say at least because there could be more, but I haven't done the research.

    According to Horsetalk NZ, there have been 3 human eventing deaths in 2014.

    I posted this in a different thread, but think it's important to bring up again. From EN:

    From EN:


    Accidents do sometimes happen, but when they happen three times at the same fence since 2011, perhaps we should call it a duck.

    Quick question about the video posted of his recent work: his hind end looks tight to me at the gallop. Is this just me who is not used to seeing TBs run?

    Also, do racehorses receive any bodywork...

    Hmm... while I haven't had this exact situation come up for me before, I imagine doing a lot lot lot of transitions will really help. For example, trot 5 steps, walk 2, trot 10 steps, walk 5, trot 7,...

    OP - So jealous you were able to audit a BB clinic! I bought his 7 clinics DVDs and it was one of my best learning purchases. I'm hoping I will have the opportunity to see him in October in NC. Just...

    I second plank. Try to hold it for 10 seconds and work your way up to 60. Do 3 reps, then 5. Do squats, too, and form is important here.

    When plank becomes "easy" (it never really is easy), lift...

    I hope that he's at a price where you could get him. I always err on the side of caution with youngsters though and I'd let him spend at least another year growing without a lot of riding work. Get...

    He had the skinny down right after the double and before the liverpool oxer. That one came down a lot.

    Everyone else (except Chris Burton - 1 rail) jumped double clear. Doug and Tali stay in 6th.
