    It was about 30% of the "full event" price for the balcony seats - so I'm guessing about the same $ for the VIPs? I bought my balcony set the day the singles went on sale, and there were NO tickets...

    I wonder how many breeders here can say they had a horse at the World Cup - even in the "loser" round? Bayhawk, I can't believe you said that - so, could you point out which horses you've bred that...

    I disagree - I know several GOOD riders who are unable to find FEI level horses for lease. Now, finding an older FEI horse who is stepped down to 2nd/3rd level is possible, but not a horse for PSG -...

    Oops, I just assumed it was Glenda since it was SoCal. Either way, sucks for the show manager :-( Very stressful. And sucks for the riders.

    Pipken, I think you are right - the training requirements are so different (and so ongoing) with a dressage horse, so leasing one out can really set them "back" in their training. It is hard to even...

    Yes, I was just going to say the same thing. Could you imagine having to CANCEL a CDI - OMG, the costs... All those judges flown in from other countries. The staff, the TDs, the security...

    Having seen the HUGE spook, and realizing he wears non-rowel spurs, I can totally understand how this might have happened. Legolas took a big sideways spook, I think with a lesser rider, he would...

    I wont' buy without trying on - my experience at World Cup clinched that. Way too many breeches are too low cut for my, ahem... Middle Aged Body! That is why I won't buy mail order anymore - and...

    Slightly off topic, but has there been any discussion of cloning Valegro?

    Thanks, I looked at Divoza before I posted - but they aren't in any of the towns we are visiting. I will not have the ability to get anywhere on my own - has to be walking distance. That would have...

    But that happens in the US too. I've seen people buy an inexpensive horse, put 30 - 60 days on the horse, take some good pics and video and sell the horse for 5 times what they paid. I think it is...

    Wow, thanks guys - I'm sure my credit card will be smoking :-)
  14. Breeches Shopping In Germany and/or Flanders?

    I need breeches! Tried a ton on at World Cup - but the only thing I liked was over $400 - and that is just not realistic... But I'm sure the nice quality breeches will be much more affordable in...

    I wasn't in love with that ride either - I was very surprised when the scores went up, in general, I was pretty much "right there" with the placings, except for that horse. I think it was a very...

    Just a reminder, there is no call for perfection in the rulebook. 10 is EXCELLENT, not perfect.

    The only ride I saw was the freestyle - and I saw a lot of very good (9) and excellent (10) work...

    It came from US dollars (whether a private non-profit or a business or ?) - my point, if this was in Europe, would any organization there have funded OUR riders? No. When our riders have to travel...

    I know nothing about Busse, but Dobert can be lovely quality. They have a few different "levels" of quality now. I had an older one that was really, really nice - and looked great for years.

    And also worth checking on IR - I've known quite a few Andalusians and a few WBS with this issue - it seems to be more and more common. I'd check that for ANY horse who can't lose weight, based on...

    This same thing is true of Warmbloods until recent times! The Warmblood started out as a utility horse too - there was little need for riding horses 100 years ago. The Friesian has changed, many...
