    You will see plenty of messy and uncontained hair at dressage shows if you care enough to look. It's just very, very low on the list of concerns.

    My hair is curly, and when long I would just...

    My first thought is really slow tempo because she may just feel off balance at the faster tempo and need time to build to it with relaxation.

    My second thought is if you wrote to Lauren Sprieser...

    I ride with an FEI trainer whose clients don't go out and win everything, and the majority don't even show. However, he has...

    See, I think that the bitchiness comes from judging it for whatever reason you and others seem to be.

    To be clear, I have one horse with whom competing would be insanity, as he goes bonkers in...

    I have only been to two shows with my mare, and so far the trend is mostly what I'd expect despite the crackhead judge at our last show. Her left lead canter transition and stretchy...
  14. Where's the thread about spooky things and horses having to deal?

    My young horse was at my trainer's until our last show, and was supposed to come home after the show. Well, at the show she cast herself and strained some muscles, so after 3 weeks of hand walking I...

    I have yet to find full seats which seem to comfortably fit my shape except the Goode Rider Jean Riders. Every other brand the seat sags lower than my crotch, so there's bunching when I sit.
