    There is a big difference between a horse whose own "attributes" make it worth $100K, and a horse worth $50K...

    Of all the people on this thread, Honeylips knows *from experience* of what she speaks.

    And will just add - a friend of mine not too long ago bought a very nice youngster (4 y/o) in Europe. Vetted...

    Yes, I well remember that. IIRC, we also had a DSHB show that weekend at the same venue, and our judge couldn't get there because all flights had been grounded. We had to bring in another judge who...

    Rankings are based on how many points a horse earns in that discipline at USEF sanctioned shows (for that awards year, and assuming the breeder name is on file with USEF). While "big breeders" have...

    FWIW, the AHS auction is now closed. Some horses sold, some did not. Some prices put on them by the sellers looked realistic, some did not.

    I found it sad there were three 15 y/o mares offered....

    I still think that is really sad. Such a bummer to put in so much effort and only draw a handful of shoppers.

    I didn't understand last night how the Termites got inside the church. I saw Rick and gang leaving, and the door being closed and locked, but then it was so freaking dark I couldn't figure out what...

    Not sure what generated this nasty retort. The comment I referred was made by a very, very, VERY top judge to a group of people. While that judge may be part of your scorned "Dressage Illuminati",...

    As for the difference in riding styles between EG and Charlotte - isn't he quite a bit taller then she is? With longer arms and legs?

    Debbie McDonald once commented during a clinic that riders...

    I have seen instructors put them on horses for a few lessons when the rider doesn't have the core strength to get/keep the horse "on the bit".

    There are two types of shows that offer young horse classes - 1) national shows, which are governed by USEF, and 2) CDIs, which are governed by FEI. You...
  17. American-Born Stallion Approved at the 2014 Trakehner Verband Inspection

    This was discussed in the article mentioned in the other thread about the Trakehner stallion licensing, but I thought it merited a whole topic of its own.
