Never heard of it!
I read the OP as being from someone who'd a new horse by a certain stallion, and she was overly excited about it and went OTT in her comments
How very dare I have a different take on things and...
yes, very light poles and shallow cups. Been regulation over here for years.
That was one helluva short stride between the first two parts of that combination! Still good on the horse for...
Non horsey friend sees dressage phase [of a three day event] "ha! What's he dressed like Fred Astaire for?!"
"Actually that's a woman..."
"huh? So do the men wear ballgowns? Why are they dressed...
Technically speaking there is no difference between one TB and another - they do all trace back to one of three stallions after all! Buuuut there are subtle differences due to breeding the original...
That was my take on things!
Course the internet being what it is nowadays no one will say "congrats on your new horse" and leave it at that, there has to be a fight
I used to ride a part TB (well I think he was part TB I only know who his sire was) and he was at least 18hh. Actually makes 6'2" me look small!!!
My colours are black and blue with grey "accents", tack is black and accessories, rugs etc are various shades of blue, I wear grey or black jods and blue tops. I even managed to get a blue grooming...
Oh she is lovely! You could keep doing dressage with her, a cob can beat the Warmbloods!
What's your horse's name, do you know anything about his breeding at all, names of sire/dam, or anything?
As long as the surface isn't mirror smooth, then AFAIK there's no reason not to have concrete flooring in a stable, the yard my first pony was at was constructed from 'reclaimed' out buildings, and...
heehee I was asking my horse the other day if he thought he was a dog, he has to stop and sniff at every poo he comes across in the arena, including the one he just did!
Not sure about what breed...
I think my lad looks like Phar Lap, and/or Warum Nicht [sp?] aside from a slightly different face marking. I've also seen Showjumpers and Eventers who look like him, but can't remember their names!
IIRC horses are red/green colour blind, and the coloured poles are only there to make the competition look more colourful for TV viewers! :)
Can't speak for shavings, but the hair never seems to come out of fleeces!
I usually wash my rugs out in a big plastic tub to get the worst of the muck off before I put them in the washing machine!
Nah! They can still learn stuff in their teens, I used to ride a horse who was in his late teens/early twenties who was happy to try lateral movements
good luck with your fella! :)
I hang mine on a kitchen chair, which allows the air to circulate around it, and spray it with Febreze once a week. If I have to store it somewhere for any length of time then I put a dryer sheet...
:lol: Glad to hear I'm not the only one! Although in fairness, of all the letters in the arena, K does have a shifty look about it!
This happened to my saddle as well, I put it on the floor, resting on the pommel, and left it for a couple of days and the dents smoothed themselves out :yes:
Portersize Just-A-Jiff is around that height and competing at the European Eventing Champs, pretty sure he was at WEG last year as well.
He's not the only one, there've been several top Eventers...
OMG yes, can't go into too many details for personal reasons, but someone I knew got into horses after seeing me and my horsey gear, they bought everything they needed to set themselves up as a top...
Can't tell if serious
Absolutely, a lot is "lost in translation"
<a curmudgeon says> I hate SS. Won't join in with them ever again after the fiascos on two MBs :mad: </a curmudgeon says>
The letter K on the arena wall, walked and trotted passed it fine on the left rein, went to change the rein from M to K and around X whoooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh WTF is that thing on the...
