    The point here is that the 24/7 people that are "killing" themselves are doing it because they have made a conscious decision to sacrifice there bodies. And when their bodies fail, I hope they have a...

    More good stuff here.

    I know that I'm thread-jacking my own thread. But what about all these college students who are receiving a degree for "horse training"? (i.e. Lake Erie, Virgina Intermont,...

    Great posts here. Thanks. :D

    It's good to see that many of you see the horse industry for what it really is.
  4. Don't take it too seriously, this horse business.

    After 25+ years in this horse business, I can say with confidence that you should not take this too seriously. The reality is that most people can take it or leave it with out a whimsical thought.

    :lol:Funny stuff but spot on the truth.

    +1 Those of us that have to work horses for a living are definitely lower class in Middleburg. But it is fun to be with so many horse folk, even if they don't really work for their money.
  7. Poll: What a great idea

    This would be fun. I think many eventers would be surprised by how much riding is required on the day.

    Opportunity knocks

    For me, as a west coaster, PC was a great opportunity to ride and compete in other ways that we would not be exposed to, usually. Besides going to Eventing and SJ Rallies, I played at camp,...

    Good ol' Agassi

    I had a horse named Agassi that had the same sound track, "Jump Around" by House of Pain. It matched him perfectly.

    And Mr. Davidson is good name to top the list, but is he still competing?
    If there are any staff that are eventing, then they...

    Hunting/Eventing

    I know that this has been asked before, but it wasn't specific enough.

    Who do you know is combining hunting and eventing in their daily riding?

    I have heard that the O'Conners are a good for a...

    I should add that years ago I used the "ala carte" model for coaching. But a couple of times I had a student use a "guest coach" for sentimental reasons. So then I was put in a situation where I had...

    Yes it is rare. But it doesn't change my belief on this subject. I do not think that trainers/coaches should be double dipping into the well. And this is how I feel about trainers that charge...

    This is an issue that I am still coming to terms with, quite honestly. For me, Coaching at an event is the culmination of good training and good participation by the student. So as a reward for good...

    Broken Bridge :D:D:D

    Even though this type of jump is not around today, it was a total blast to jump.

    The horses usually jumped it well. And I always felt this type was a true horse jump. It...

    Since Bob would be the minority in Eventing, then you should use a name more appropriate, like Barbara or Mary, et al.

    Either way, I find it interesting at how the status quo has problems with...

    I feel the need to plug that two-wheeled thing with a chain that everyone has, the bicycle.

    I thought I was fit until I started riding my bicycle. Part of it is that CA is not flat.:eek: So if...

    Wasn't it the same problem at Athens '04? The riders were off-site, too.
  21. When have the Equestrians marched during opening ceremonies?

    It seems that the equestrians are sequestered to their barracks because of competition. And this is not just recently.

    So, when was the last time that the equestrians marched with the US team for...

    Good responses to OP

    Just want to second the direct affiliation with a hunt to wear colors.

    As the honorary whipper-in for LAH, which means I donate my time, the brown tops are something that I have earned with the...
