    Findeight--you're certainly right that there can be bad deals to be found in Europe, but it doesn't change the fact that we decided to go take a look there to sidestep local sellers who surprised us...

    What finally sparked us to have trainer look for a horse for us in Europe was the shenanigans we experienced looking at horses near home. After having people insulted because we passed on horses we...

    Sometimes horses who are stepping down are leased, so a good idea with horses who jump to stipulate how high it is allowed to be jumped now. Have known people who were dismayed to see their horse at...

    And while waiting for the next race, you can watch the new movie about Mine That Bird called "50 to 1" . :)

    Very cool article. Thanks for sharing it. ( I always thought St. Santiago was the patron saint of horses. Maybe there is more than one st. for horses?)

    I like having my DH at the barn and shows--whether it's for me or our kid who rides. I like some me time, but I really like having time with him too, and he is very busy so it's not all that much. He...

    It is sad how some never grow out of the mean thing. When I was in college, I drove my grandmother to a ladies club luncheon that she was part of and as we ate lunch, I heard the elderly ladies...

    Love your enthusiasm, OP and hope you never lose it. That's such a big part of it, having people like coming to ride, feel they're making progress and feel good afterward. There's a very young...

    Kiddo (a guy) with a wide foot uses the MDC wide footbed for jumpers for the grip, but would like regular plain filis irons but with a grippy footbed for equitation. Can't find cheese graters in...

    That site also had a little desk sand arena with jumps. I'd never get any work done if I had that. I'd build more tiny jumps out of broken pencils, get some more little horses, start course...

    I prefer having vets (or doctors or lawyers for that matter) who not only have expertise in their fields, but who don't look at things in a vacuum, and are willing examine the broader picture and...

    Clearly, it's not good/healthy for horses to be fat, but I think people might unconsciously keep them fatter is because they grew up thinking thinner horses were being mistreated/abused/needed...

    I wish in cases like these and in other cases where someone's violating the spirit of the sport, some show would just automatically and instantly present The Special One with their own Special Blue...

    Wow--who knew that all this was simmering, that hairnets could inspire rebellion! Who knew that there were so many people determined to hoist the Jolly Roger and go storm Hunterville to cast off the...

    As others have pointed out, this is a funny thread. I mean, people are pretty much free to wear whatever they want 24/7. They can wear jammies to many schools, choose a career where it's okay to...

    Yes, definitely clarify if you like people enough to be in the business (training and instructing) as well. Though you love horses first and foremost, it helps to basically like people, even those...

    If you show frequently and run across the same judges again and again, you generally can't help but see a pattern in their judging when it comes to guys. Boy riders are pretty scarce these days and...

    In the World of Equitation, maybe it's not a matter of dream eq. build as much as it's dream eq. genes as in sharing some BNR genes? See FB Equestrians Back in the Day where someone mentioned 6 out...

    RPM is right--and everyone would love that novel instead of how a horse novel is viewed today with people finding fault and saying it's not plausible. :D

    I was too tired last night to articulate what I was picturing re: barn cats. But I was picturing Barn Cats Gone Bad or Gone Wild or Going Rogue or something along those lines. And the Christmas Eve...

    Funny, for me it isn't the snappy/sometimes rude things trainers sometimes fire off that bug me. As long as I know that trainer genuinely is trying to help me/my horse/my kid and is on our side,...
