    I'm in the always tucked in camp, with a belt. And yes, I've shown in black and pastel colored polos, as well as Kerrits shirts.

    Attire doesn't change in the rain. Some people put a clear or...

    I have a standing appointment with mine every 4th Friday. It's easier than having to remember to catch up with him and pick a day.

    If the Dressage Regionals you mention is the USDF one, then you must be stabled on the grounds. If it is some other regionals (since you mention western) where stalls are not required, you should...

    That has not been my experience. I've ridden in the show rings before the show started at three different shows so far this year. I can't imagine you wouldn't be allowed to walk in them on foot...

    As someone mentioned, hitch compatibility is an issue - not just weight distributing/regular, but height. Not leveling your trailer with your tow vehicle can cause a great hauler to turn into a...

    Arrive before the shows starts and walk in the ring with her. Let her walk them on foot 10 times until she knows exactly where to be. Then remind her when she is on the horse to push the horse out...

    I'd really recommend scoping. Mine went in for his first scope 30 days ago. He had grade 4 bleeding ulcers. He spent 30 days on Gastroguard (and the first 14 also on Misoprostol and Sucralfate). ...

    Sure. A half halt is just a rebalancing of the horse.

    In a galloping position, you might do that by opening the angle in your hip (i.e. lifting your shoulders so you are a bit more vertical)...

    Congrats!

    These are all local level divisions, which means the show can name them anything them want, and set any rules they want. Does the prizelist say anything else about them that could help...

    I really doubt anyone will question you about the diameter of that bit. Also - make sure you are measuring the diameter at the ring - not near the center.

    You could try Jane Sleeper. I know she had some Harry the Hat youngsters at one time.

    I pay close attention - although many of the shows around here run at least 4 rings so it is less of an issue.

    For Regionals, I need 2 scores from 2 different judges/2 shows.
    For All-Breeds, I...

    No. Don't do it. This is a recipe for disaster.

    Look for a partial-lease or a trainer that will let you sign up for two lessons per weekend. Save ownership for when you will have more time on...

    Have you scoped after treatment to confirm that the ulcers healed? If not, I'd consider re-scoping and perhaps trying a more aggressive treatment plan (Gastroguard, Sucralfate, Misoprostol) and a...

    There are two separate issues here. If it were my horse, and I had a stall/set-up that was working, I wouldn't want to move either.

    As soon as possible, just tell the BO that you would prefer to...

    From the comments, only one has survived, and the owner has moved the mare and surviving foal to another barn 2 hours away where they can receive care from someone with more experience. I don't see...

    It's certainly not common (unless you put half chaps over them), but there is nothing wrong with it. It's legal to show in jods at least through 4th level in rated shows.

    Very common in Europe. Definitely a bit more risk in case of an accident, but also some clear benefits.

    It takes riders years (especially those who ride less frequently) to have the skill and...

    My Firenze boots got here today and I think they're going to work great! I tried them on with boot socks (but no breeches). The left one zipped up in one shot. The right one took about 30 seconds....

    Yeah - I think you're correct. The both work - omeprazole is just a bit stronger (imho), and can be dosed less often.
