    I wasn't implying anything nefarious just don't see the point in trying to recoup costs from something like that. I've passed on many horses...I always give the X-rays to the seller and give them...

    Honestly....Never trust someone else's PPE. I have personally known many who one buyer passes on a horse because of crappy X-rays, and the seller or next buyer gets those X-rays and they are either...

    It really depends on what fits you. I have a pair of Sergio Grasso's...fit me like a glove, butter to break in. LOVE them. They are on sale at Smart Pak now.

    Honestly...given the location, they may have had no choice. I personally hate this sort of event...but with the large tent and them wanting to use as much space as they could....this may make the...

    Lawyer in me.....flung shoe. Hope they all sign releases;)


    I suspect the tables will be well back from the "bridge".

    I know many who do it. The rate is 20-30 per ride in this area with a few places doing monthly passes typically 100-150 per horse per month. (FYI--board at an indoor runs 750-950+ in this area...

    Was told they just run in no jump, drop down the little bank to the house.

    They are not that much harder to sell....at least she isn't chestnut!

    The light dark light shouldn't be an issue....as those are not unusual questions. It is more the distraction of noise and so many people at tables that the horse doesn't see until inside the tent...

    I would get the documents you need in Germany and have them filled out and get whatever vet work you need done on the horse here in the US. We microchip horses all the time in the US but you need...

    I'm not a huge fan of running xc in reverse order of go....but I don't have as big of an issue with it if stadium still is the next day. To me, it creates the wrong incentives when xc is run...

    While there have long been similar jumps going through a structure (more typically a Barn like structure)....I dislike this with spectators and so much stuff in the tent.

    I was told they are not allowed so changed my guy into a regular KK snaffle. He was ready for the change anyway. But best advice is to ask the GJ at the event. I think it is not clear.

    I didn't think it was allowed for dressage but then there was a recent rule change and then change back...and I lost track. But you could use it for jumping.
