    I lived in California for quite a while and one of the biggest issues you are going to deal with is traffic!

    How often do you want to ride and what commute are you willing to make?

    I will petition the USEA to move AEC to colorado horse park just for you JP60. Hopefully some of the "recreational" activities available in that state will help you relax you a bit ;)

    Some people have family and job responsibilities that do not enable them to go. It has nothing to do with having chops or not.

    You can't have it both ways - saying it isn't badminton and not even a national championship and then say that if people call it not a true championship then they are "crapping on other people".

    Look at it from a statistical perspective.
    I don't think you can argue that the best

    which regions people are from, how many went,
    how many regions are...

    Horse welfare does come up in the discussion because no one is going to come off several days of trailering and go straight into the ring. They are going to want to take a few days for the horse to...

    That's another thing that factors heavily into this. It's not just the number of days at the competition or the travel time, there is also REST time to factor in. I can't imagine anyone doing a...

    Don't forget this is a junior rider I'm talking about. How many parents are going to feel comfortable sending their child off with a newly minted driver's licence halfway around the country solo with...

    What definition of "best" are you working off of? If you look at a lot of folks from Area II who did not go and you compare where they relative to some of the people that did travel to AEC, are you...

    I NEVER thought it would make it out of the east, honestly. I never imagined competing at the AEC's would be less than a two day haul. That never deterred me from wanting to attend one day, and I...

    Part of the problem, and I've mentioned this elsewhere, is that the Texas Rose Horse Park is in a location that does not lend itself to anything other than the AEC itself. For people who have limited...

    It is interesting to compare this thread with the one about the AEC's over on the Eventing forum. A rotating regional championships is one thing if the time involved changes from a few hours, say 2-3...

    It isn't condescending. It is a statement of fact. There are quite a few people who qualify who can't justify the expense, the time off work, time away from family responsibilities (e.g. young kids)...

    That's why I think the national championships really only makes sense for pros competing at the upper levels. People on the west coast are going to complain about a venue that is in the eastern half...

    You were mentioning that you thought the rider was at fault. I'm suggesting that the horse may not be ready to do a lot of what the rider is asking, whether she is asking correctly or not.

    I think they are a championship horse trial in a sense because of the way you have to qualify and on the basis of who *could* show up. However, it is not a true championship in the real sense of the...

    I think the reason why there are so many opinions here (some heated) on the 30-day notice question is that many equine related businesses don't observe good business practices.

    Ideally it shouldn't. However, if this horse isn't used to using it's back and really stepping under, it may find it easier to move freely whenever it can use its head how it wants to. if the horse...

    Why is the OP paying $400/month for board but buying feed for her horse?
    Is the BO simply not feeding the horse enough? Does the horse eat more than the normal amount so as to incur an upcharge for...
