    I camped for years. YEARS. Theoretically in a tent, but with the amount of rain we get early in the season, I often inflated a twin mattress in the back seat of my truck :lol:

    You guys are hilarious. Eventing Nation didn't change the title of their article (which several complained about, but now is apparently ok).

    I was bummed to see that Maya will no longer be riding Cody. They are such a great combination to watch.

    Yes. Always check your official time with your watch. I was given a score of time penalties for being too fast, when I knew I'd been 15 seconds slow!. I handed in my watch AND I brought the video my...
  7. My TB decided to be a lumpy unicorn, or how to get rid of a bump on the head?

    So it wouldn't be Christmas if I didn't show up to the barn and find one of my OTTBs inexplicably injured.

    About 4 days ago I came to the barn to find one of my boys with a small cut on his...

    Danzig. I love them. Gorgeous halter plate included. Thick, tough, but supple leather. You can't beat the price. They'll do custom sizing at no extra charge (hello weirdo pony with a horse sized nose...

    For the record, you're not the only one to have this problem. I taught the husband that the strap points to the back... then handed him double-lock boots one day. He had the same problem, "they just...

    Abbie- I haven't decided yet! I've done eventing for a long time and still love it, so if he takes to it, great... but I rode in a few jumper clinics and loved it! I would love to focus solely on...

    Keysfins-
    Rockannand will have to respond, but I think their bringing up traveling trainers had to do with this statement from the original post "In our area finding a place to go to is very...

    Dam's side has Danzig, who generally lends to athletic, nice moving types. To be honest, I bought him off a combination of breeding and looks. Matty G hasn't been particularly spectacular as a...

    1. I can call out responses that I do not think are relevant to the topic and that I feel are detracting from the intended discussion.

    Very true. I'm ultimately going to contact a local specialist, but I'm not above picking internet minds since it's slow here at work.

    If I scrape it down, add aggregate, etc... Am I going to need...

    I have no emotional connection to any opinion of his conformation or suitability for "X" discipline.

    I don't even disagree with you in that I would never tie a horse like that. And if you want to...

    You brought up temperament based on how a horse was tied.

    Since you brought up temperament, I gave you what info I have on that right now, as well as my opinion on temperament at the track vs....

    Agreed, Beowulf, your boy is lovely. And for the record, I too, would've bought him off the track based on the first pic!

    It will be fun to see how this horse changes over time!

    Yeah, that's what I was worried about. Ultimately, the plan is for a legit arena- graded, leveled, drained, nice footing... It's just not in the budget for today- the plan is in 2 years. I was hoping...

    Csaper- for several reasons

    I didn't ask about opinions on his temperament. If I had, I would've certainly given details about his behavior. For the record, if you want to discuss behavior, this...

    Oy vey.

    I did not ask your opinion on his tack, on his handling, on what you perceive to be the level of horsemanship of whoever was handling him on that day.

    I didn't even ask for your...

    I have no personal experience, no kids yet, and even then I only plan on one. BUT I was actually talking with my friends about this the other day- they both have children. They all said to do two...
  25. It's a gray day, here, have some fun with conformation!

    6 years old. Right off the track.

    Critique away. And no, sorry, I don't have a picture that shows pasterns. Sorry.

    Oh, if you're critiquing with suitability for a certain discipline in mind,...
