    Does steamed hay smell different from hay soaked in cold water? I think wet hay smells bad.

    The problem with photos of skin issues is that they all look similar, so not a good way to make a diagnosis.

    I would get a vet to take a skin scraping and have the lab analyze it to see whether it...

    Doesn't he now clinic with Paul Belasik? That says something to me about how he judges good trainers. I would guess that Paul fuels some of the negative thinking about today's dressage riding.

    I have your body type and my horse fits your description.

    I ride in a Cardinal Cachet, modified with the external 'slanted' block. It looks a lot like the Custom Wolfgang, but it is much nicer...

    Janne Rumbough is 70 (or over) and rides GP as an AA. Recent scores in high 60's. I think she looks every bit as good as a 20 year old sitting on the horse. Believe or not, some older men and...

    PLEASE!!! Not that anyone cares, but some of us do not open threads on topics where we have no interest. Opening this thread only to read baloney from PFB is quite irritating.

    My bolding. This is probably while I am sympathetic here. I have that kind of horse...big old style and rump high. It's hard to ride a horse like this.

    At the USA Dressage Finals, Mike also finished 2nd in the Open Grand Prix, beating all those strong-cored young riders. That video is available on usefnetwork and he rides the test similarly to the...

    I read the comments before looking at the video. I was surprised at the comments about this rider's position. I think it is lovely. So what if sometimes the leg is a little forward. Ed Gal rides...

    If you're moving up in horse size and horse talent, then it's not surprising that you might find it more difficult to sit the bigger gaits.

    Hey, we have to start somewhere. Were weren't born...

    Sugar may help with chewing and <false> foam, but will not help to disguise grinding. Gumbits are glycerine or something similar. They coat the teeth. Years ago (maybe still now) people rubbed...

    Two guys have almost the same shirt, lol. It's the chestnut I like; guy with 1 on his shirt. So we think Gareth Hughes. Thanks, Larkspur. Sorry for the interruption.

    Gosh, we have about 5...

    You have misunderstood me, alicen. I am saying that it is the low level riders (mostly that don't compete) that use the term RollKur and rant about it. Usually when there is an uproar about someone...

    No that's not who I meant. But I agree that man with the blue polo 'shirt' was a lovely rider. I liked the horse with the blue polo wraps. Yes, he was sweaty and yes the curb was horizontal (I...

    It is funny how everyone focuses on different things. I watched the whole video. Haven't loaded all the comments yet.

    My eye was attracted to the man with the two-tone shirt with the numeral '1'...

    Why not consider a mono crown? Personally, I don't like all that weight on the poll.

    Have you looked into Jerry's Bridles? There you can customize everything. I have never heard anything...

    I counted 6 people on this thread that have trained and shown their horses to I2/GP. All able to be confirmed. There are several others that have trained/shown to 4th/PSG. Those are just the ones...

    No, but in the old days (USDF board pre-Y2K) there were actually discussions about TRAINING where people could share things. Yes, there probably were a few jerks there too, but not like now. ...

    My outdoor ring was put inside a fenced pasture. We left grass around it with no boundary. We did not have a problem with sand drifting and we did not have a drainage problem. 12 years without a...

    OP should have started with showing examples of the kind of riding she was talking about.

    It would have been nice if people would spin off a new thread when the topic has changed. Why doesn't...
