    Wow. Just wow. You are, presumably, an adult with a daughter who rides, based on previous posts. And you feel necessary to air a teenager's dirty laundry on a public forum? Which, considering no...

    Just for a little perspective- I have an 8 year old I bought at 3 who flexed 1/5 behind and rads showed a bit of arthritis. Neither very good sport horse vet was concerned, since hocks are so easy to...

    There's nothing horsey near Falls Church, unfortunately. It's smack dab in the middle of suburban sprawl hell. Their best bet is going to be to head out to Middleburg- if you do a search on...

    It should be fairly simple to send them an email saying "Just wanted to let you know I've moved to a different trainer, going forward, please contact me directly about any issues/updates/questions...

    Let's just say there are some differing opinions on Rolling Acres. PM me if you want more info.

    From Gaithersburg I'd head to Poolesville, there is Lohman Stables and Broad Run Farm, both of whom...

    That she is allowed to continue to have horses is criminal. Shame on the prosecutor for pleading her out on those terms.

    I'm very sorry to hear this, sammicat, although not surprised. Hopefully the word gets out and people stop buying these saddles.

    I suspect the low injury rate was a function of it being a WEG year and having Luhmulen as another option. Riders seem much more interested in saving the horses for WEG rather than getting a...

    I think what you are running into is that the horse you are looking for is also suitable for pure dressage or hunters/jumpers... where the price point for younger horses is quite a bit higher than it...

    Petey jumps fine, and I don't think Petey's ability is in question. I think the concern is that no one should be jumping 1.20m if they are going to continually miss like that. At best, it punishes...

    Yeah, widening the tree twisted my saddle and made it completely crooked. I gave them the benefit of the doubt over and over again, and they would have completely screwed me if I had let them. In...

    Actually, a nice long holiday is frequently NOT the best way to rehab a tendon/ligament for long-term soundness. I've had several with mild-to-moderate injuries to the DDFT and suspensory branches,...

    Sammicat, I think I might have shared my CWD horror story on a previous thread. They just do not make a tree wide enough for the barrel-shaped warmbloods with big shoulders, and Bertrand (the...

    Be that as it may, you are not helping them one bit. After your posts, I would be even *less* inclined to purchase their product than I was after reading the original post.

    But we don't know either of those things, and we also don't know that it was part of a "calmer supplement", other than what this particular poster stated.

    In the case that it is a calming...

    Out of curiosity and somewhat side-tracking, has Jock Paget provided any kind of explanation for the reserpine? It's a strange thing to use to gain a "performance advantage" considering you probably...

    +1. Completely 100% agree. As always, I'm amazed at of the things certain posters can find to complain about.

    Congrats to all competitors, sponsors, owners, organizers and volunteers on a...

    He's pretty seriously off in the left hind. Looks fine in front. Seems to have a great brain.

    Based on what I could see, I suspect he'd jump well. Probably not a hunter type, but will likely have a great front end and seems to have good power behind. He reminds me a lot of my 7-year old who...

    I absolutely love the tops of the new ones. I HATE the ankle/foot. It looks clunky, like a big insulated winter boot. Unlike what someone mentioned above, field boots are not necessary for the...

    Or, she's riding him in a giant bit with a ton of hand and sitting hard on his back, so he's falling out behind. The horse is used to going forward to the jumps with his nose poked, not manhandled in...

    Now, the gray coat with red lining would have been totally in! I have a small collection of different colored coats with fun lining colors.

    I do wonder if black was out because it wasn't such a...

    Black was not just "out of style," but a full-on hunter fashion faux pas until ~4-5 years ago when they started making beautiful black plaid coats. But from sometime in the 80's until about 2009 or...

    It's been a few years since I lived there, but you are probably looking at about $1k in board, and another $750 or so in training. Many barns don't do partial training, but full training will also...

    I love and have worn french blue and sage green coats in the hunters in the past couple of years (and for many years before that) with colored shirts. Not sure why everyone thinks you can only wear...
