    I have an apt that I rent along with one or two stalls. I want someone with their own horse here, so they are invested in the barn care. Over the years, 4 renters - one from word of mouth, two...

    If you have some time to learn it, Google SketchUp is free. You can start with flat diagrams then progress to 3D jumps fairly easily. Lots of YouTube tutorials.

    You print these as 2D PDFs.

    [QUOTE=mvp;8093175]
    I think there is a lot of sophistication in good WP training. But the bar is so high that a lot of not-quite-good-enough movers get really screwed up trying to beat the...

    You start with conformation. The slowness is more a factor of conformation and strength than training - the very strong lioin and rear end, and open shoulder to allow a flat leg sweep, and uphill...

    Below is a short tour of some of the AQHA stallions winning and currently siring HUS horses. Who would not go and look at prospects by any of these? I love the HUS horses, love the class, the...

    As a barn designer who listens to what people, who have never owned a barn before, say what they think they want, I KNOW this is true.

    Thanks for posting this, I had forgotten about that class. Problem is the "they" that are 'trying' are individuals using their own time and effort to put on these Hunter Derbies and scrounge...

    The twos that ARE being shown are bred to be stronger and more mature, thicker bodied, different conformation than the ones that will grow up to do well as aged HUS horses. As the winner's heads...

    There are tons of AQHA trainers around Columbus. Any one of them can direct you to a person who specializes in young horses. And as it is only groundwork, the cultural differences in ridden...

    My PERSONAL opinion is that the top standard for any judged event should be the venue where the most money or prizes are up, and is open to all. USHJA Hunter Derbies are this to me in hunters, the...

    I didn't mean that quite so literally. Just the tendency of owners to want to push for the moon with a really good horse, which for show horses means many cross country trailer rides, rather than...

    You'd think they at least would send the groom for Chrome.

    This sort of rift happens all the time with winning show horses. Push to bigger prizes, long distance traveling vs consider what...

    Humph... So my old, old inexpensive poly hunter green coat is probably "in", but my newer, old green coat, a lovely dark celadon wool with beautiful piping, is probably not in. Then there is...

    I put my old leaking metal water troughs to use as hay feeders when I keep horses out for the day in the arena. Safer than eating on the sand and limits hay on the footing.

    So is this the SAME dark hunter green? I kept mine. Usually fashion colors change just enough the next cycle so that the old color is noticeably old.

    I have shown HUS from the 70s on. It used to be: the fastest trot won, and the horses were off the QH track, too hot for the western classes. Then, the very tall spidery HUS became the must-have...

    OK Bluey, you have good points, but "stiff, resistant, hollow back, U-necked horses with their heads tucked in by the strong bits and hands" is quite different from "by far not what it is today." ...

    Now this is wrong.

    I showed WP in Calif from 1966 to 1972, at the QH shows (mostly Diamond Bar) and the big open shows at Santa Barbara, before moving to Colorado. We kept the horses between...
