    Waredaca would also work. Also 20 mins from Columbia (and 10 from Olney). Pasture board on 70 acres, indoor, outdoor, jump ring, cross country course, tons of trails, trailer parking (not free but...

    I can't point you to online resources, but I have judged this sort of thing (super low level pony club type stuff) a couple of times and can give you my experience.

    At this level, you will end up...

    Since the bute is making no difference that is a vote for an abscess. Certainly I've had them show up with no reaction to hoof testers.

    Organizers prefer SJ first (at HTs - no direct knowledge of FEI events) because the day runs more quickly and smoothly (a hold on xc does not affect other phases) and because you do weed out some...

    Southwind in Damascus is a friendly place with a mix of dressage and eventers and good coaches either on site or coming on a regular basis. Lots of trails, nice indoor, big outdoor jump ring.

    Don't see why - we run BN - Intermediate at Waredaca (along with some hybrid divisions) in August in 2 days. 2 long days, trust me, since I am there for all of both of them, but 2 days nonetheless....

    I'm no scheduling guru, but we already have Bucks County and Lost Hounds in area Ii that weekend, presumably bc everyone felt they were far enough from each other and from Surefire.

    Agree, none of that is mandatory. A vest is much more important. In order after that would be boots, then a neck strap or breastplate. Bell boots are up to you.
    They hopefully will not be going very...

    Huh. I've done probably 5 or 6 schooling shows over the past few years (I am an eventer so I don't show recognized dressage, but schooling shows are very helpful), and pretty much every time the...

    I had a horse with four high white socks living out 24/7 and drinking from a creek every day. I did the chlorahex (or cortisoothe from my vet) shampoo, but like others said, not too often. Then the...

    Lots of good advice here. I bought a 9 year old warmblood years ago who had spent lots of time in a controlled dressage environment. He was much older, and much longer in training, and naturally...

    I sold one through Middleburg Tack Exchange earlier this year. Their site is worth a check too.

    Opinions will vary, but honestly if you can swing it financially, now is a perfectly reasonable time to get one. It takes time to get used to the new position it puts you in, and then it begin to see...

    So, I think you may just be where you are - she's starting to understand, and getting stronger, but can't yet be consistent. The habits and muscling she had when you got her take time to undo, and...

    I would take it to a good trailer shop and they can check all these things out. If it's a bent axle it may be so slight you can't eyeball it. I had one - discovered when they took off the tires and...

    Hate to pile on but this certainly does sound like a collateral ligament issue (or coffin bone). Had one like this. Long rehab. I certainly wouldn't be lunging this horse, with or without gear,...

    In eventing, at least in the mid-Atlantic, lots of kids come up through Pony Club. They also now do Center programs where kids without their own horses can participate on school horses.

    I like it but have the same issue DC did - how would you structure xc without traffic jams? Maybe some kind of Y shape where you rejump, say, the first 3 fences and then peel off?
