    Wow jp60. That was really over the top. You clearly do not know me at all. I NEVER said don't be proud of your AEC experience. In fact, I said the opposite. I said it WAS a big deal to do well...

    Stop taking it so personally. It was not said as a put down.....it was said as a fact. It IS a big deal to go--especially given the expense and time commitment to go...and it is a big deal to do...

    I've had a few starved OTTBs (body scores low 2 almost 1)....we didn't treat for the ulcers that I'm sure that they had as they put the weight on easily and well. And just with time, good pasture...

    He has a lovely pedigree.....and regardless....you ride the horse not his papers. With MS...you want a horse with a great brain. I think a smart TB who is willing and happy would be perfect. ...

    The point was making a comparison in numbers. For the AECs to me to justify the expense of the national organization, it needs to pull in AT LEAST as the same number of entries as a normal HT in...

    Sorry. :). I can speak as a lawyer (not sure if that is your career) it is an outstanding area to practice. I know that it is very good for a few other industries as well.

    I've worked in Wilmington for over 15 years (never been mugged or even close--even walking to my car at night before I got parking in my building). It is no more dangerous there than any other city. ...

    I also think there were that many at Plantation HT and it was only Prelim and up in levels. There were 80 just in the 2*.

    This is a skill for riding all horses. You don't ride the horse you had yesterday or even at the start of a ride....you ride the horse you have now.

    I'm another one who has been qualified multiple times on different horses and still haven't managed to go. I almost went with Muggle but he got hurt a few days before we were leaving. I think it...

    Bummer but better to lose his tail than to lose him. Hopefully you can get him a good fake tail and some good fly sheets!!!

    I was using injectable Regumate as well (also really didn't see a big difference with Depo). We did it once a month but my vet said you can use it daily to once a month depending on your mare...

    Honestly. There are a whole hell of a lot of NON-pros who never volunteer.

    There are some BNR who do volunteer (I've known many who judged dressage at the starter trials etc) and there are some...

    Exactly. To me he looks like he hasn't had regular or good trimming. If the X-rays are not bad, I bet a decent farrier could have him turned around very fast.

    I have an OTTB with some of the...

    Honestly. You can not tell if he has a club foot without an X-ray.

    No seeding by me. Just a nice looking athlete. I'm hoping OP posts soon. If she doesn't get him, some of the rest of us might (not me as I have too many horses!!!).

    I agree in the context of your own self improvement or improvement of your own business to not focus on what "not" to do but to focus instead on what you want to do. (boy that is an odd sentence!!) ...

    Eventing...only the rider can ride at the show. No trainers can get on and school, no outside assistance. It is all about you and your partnership with your horse. This appeals to me....may not...

    There are not many that I've heard of in sport horse hands yet. There are a ton of AP Indy offspring, and some Pulpit and tons of Unbriddled out there though.
