    I just took a colt through last Fall, and can second your statement - no DNA required or collected. And my mare went through for approval, and nothing taken for her either, so it isn't required for...

    CDS has an interesting concept - you "nominate" your young horses toward Futurity classes (4, 5, and 6 years old), then the pot is paid out to those who show and place in the annual championship...

    I think it should rotate - one year East, one year West, one year Central. And agree, you'll never get everyone to participate, our country is just too big. Personally, I don't think it is a very...

    I bought one a while ago for a mare (I've since sold her) - the bridle was decent quality especially for the price. You may need to buy cob sized then buy a horse sized browband - I've done that for...

    It is one reason some of us won't make the trip South when it is there - the FEI ring is fabulous, but it goes downhill from there. The Northern location (Rancho Murieta Equestrian Center) is much...

    You can try a sheepskin cover over a girth. I love the Prestige anatomical girth - it is SO soft. The Nunn Finer girths are also really well padded. Every horse is built differently, so what works...

    Agree with J-lu, depends on the quality. If you are looking for a CDI quality horse, $20 - $30k might buy you a 3 year old. If you are OK with an 18 year old horse who needs some maintenance and is...

    I don't think that influences most of the CDS/Region 7 people - very few of "us" will go to Kentucky - it is WAY too far away, way too expensive, way too hard on the horses. If you look at the...

    I don't think anyone said buyers wouldn't care if it was a gelding - I think they comment was (or was meant as), it shouldn't matter MORE if it is a mare vs. gelding. If a person is buying a riding...

    Just have to mention - you need a 4th option on the last question - many buy and/or sell out of state but without a counterparty - a direct sale.

    It has gotten rave reviews - do a search, I think you'll find some discussion on it when it was on the East Coast. For $100 for the weekend, it seems like a good deal. I'm making the four hour...

    Post results! It is too far away for me to go, but there are many Nor-Cal riders there this year - I think it is one reason they are having such a huge championships, more of the Nor-Cals made the...

    I wouldn't take him - maybe not even for free. I've known a few people who have lost their riding horses to Kissing Spine - it doesn't kill them, but they are not rideable. Add to that colic - I...

    California, so I could probably show almost every weekend from March through November if I hauled 2.5 hours. Within ONE hour, I have Starr Vaughn (2 shows), Golden State (which even hosts CDIs, and...

    Arc de Triumph has a flash that can be taken totally off - if I remember right, Courbette makes plain nosebands too. I think you can order ANY kind of noseband from Jerrys.

    While I understand your point, I don't understand why someone buying a RIDING horse should give this a lot of weight. People buy geldings all the time - no one thinks "if he goes lame, it is too bad...

    Oh, that is great to know, I thought it was every other year. Very cool that they rotate it around that much! I didn't know it went to ID too.

    I don't live in Region 6, but I have looked at...

    Both are gorgeous - Portland is much wetter then Seattle - and probably less expensive. Near Portland you have Devonwood - it is a premier facility with good trainer(s) and they run USDF...

    I got talked into buying some stiffer boots - hated them. It is a personal preference, the theory is keeping the leg long and quiet, but you can do that in a soft boot too. I always figured it was...

    Hahaha, I just realized you are in NorCal too - FREAKING HOT! Has been over 100 the past few days, and they are getting Winter fuzzies, so the hot is even worse. I am so ready for Winter!

    I don't braid them, but do brush them and make sure they look OK. I keep my mares and foals out, so I'd start by showing them in their natural environment. Show how easy he is to halter, lead him a...

    I just want to point out - if you do use electric, you may need to wait a week or so for baby to go out on it. Young babies do not understand to back away from pain - they only go forward into it. ...

    Judges will reward "more" as long as it is well done. Remember the transitions before and after. If your horse can maintain a good medium, and can come back balanced, go for the medium.

    You may find that tight hamstrings and piriformis all tie into tight hip flexors, so you should probably work on the whole "series" (ask me how I know, hahaha). There are a ton of things you can do...

    For a big name clinician who does interact w/ the auditors, AND with lunch, I don't think that is too bad. I've paid $50 to $150 to audit a single day - some were worth it, some weren't.
