    Yes. I knew nothing about the situation but what was posted here, and was able to first search the USEF Suspenions by state, and saw that there was only one Maryland person whose suspension started...

    OP, there are a lot of solutions being offered here by very knowledgeable people. None of them are "put on spurs" (though I have to question any trainer that doesn't have someone going in the ring...

    Not really difficult, it was the second link on a google, I just hadn't bothered opening it after finding the first.

    I can perhaps understand an accidental stacking of bute and banamine,...

    If my 3 minutes of Google-fu is correct, the relevant person is on the USEF's May Administrative Penalties list. (PDF linked, hopefully, for your edification and sharing convenience.) They're the...

    If the vet is coming out anyway, yes, I'd have them do a once-over and some flexions to rule out any pain issues. But I would suspect Pilot Error, as frankly that's the most frequent cause of stops...

    If you don't want to pay to file a formal protest, or don't have the evidence to support one, at least file a Competition Evaluation form:...

    Wouldn't a better comparison be AQHAs? An actual breed purpose-bred for something other than high-level FEI disciplines. There were some odd 60,000 of those registered in 2013 if I'm reading their...

    I agree. UGuard is a good product, but if there are already ulcers there, it's not going to do much. If this were my horse, I'd probably just try a round of Gastroguard and see what happens. If...

    Interesting thought, upon looking at it again, I agree, that's a possibility. Especially since the top looks shavings-y. I'd thought perhaps it was an uphill approach and the horse might not have...

    This is Fence 20, per the EN photo course walk posted earlier in the week. It doesn't look like a particularly tricky fence IMVHO. Can anyone provide some insight into why it's historically been...
  11. Per the EN coursewalk from earlier in the week,...

    Per the EN coursewalk from earlier in the week, this is fence 20, which is reportedly where the rotational occurred. Not something you could really pin.

    It looks to be a pretty straightforward,...

    Its not so much problematic that you bought a saddle to ride in. It's that you bought a very expensive "custom" saddle, which is usually fitted to horse and rider; since you don't have a horse, it...

    I'm not OK with some of those pictures. But I'm more offended by the overall tone of the blog post. Especially when it's obvious that the blogger has no clue what they're talking about; they don't...

    I'm just trying to imagine the pain and frustration of trying to pull bit burrs or a bit guard over that pelham. It makes me want to cry.

    You're getting paid to ride the horse. That makes you an outside professional coming in to ride/train/work this horse. A ring fee from the barn is absolutely standard in that case.

    A fee for...

    Except that while the OP originally thought the Trainer was acting as an agent, they are NOT. The trainer signed the OP's bill of sale, the Trainer "bought" the horse outright. What they then choose...

    Explicitly, yes, in GR410.1.b:



    410.5.b limits the amount, but yes, like bute, Dex is allowed by the USEF. This is why you should read the rule book, learn how to access it online, and learn...
  18. Unless y'all have a different copy of the USEF...

    Unless y'all have a different copy of the USEF rule book than I do--or the USEF does--GR410 specifically says that Dexamethesone is legal for showing. Not sure why so many of you think that it's a...

    You'll try what? You've been incredibly vague on how exactly this horse is being treated, other than that it's getting bute (which isn't always the most helpful, and only treats certain kinds of...
  20. There's nothing wrong with asking the questions,...

    There's nothing wrong with asking the questions, per se, it's just that (other than "how are hunters judged" which is more of a quick Google, or glance through previous forum discussions) they're odd...

    Yes, from other posts around the forums in the last week or so, she comes across as more very enthusiastic but too young to know what she doesn't know. She's asked about building an XC course, how...

    Exactly. I don't think the primary point of the article is a bad one--expenses are going up, in every horse sport, and in everyday life as well. People are trying to make ends meet and keep...

    Bravo, retread.



    That the sport is making anyone money in the H/J discipline is illusory as well, unless perhaps you're a McLain or a Beezie, or maybe Scott Stewart or Liza Boyd. There's no...

    If my Google-fu is working, it looks like your barn offers both a schooling show series with a 2'6 medal, and the chance for IEA competitions. Why don't you focus on that this year?
