    It seems that some of the OP's gripes are fair, assuming that they can be taken at face value (i.e., the haul-ins were told explicitly that the jumps did not belong to the facility and they could not...

    I agree, it's not a bit problem.

    "Brakes" in dressage don't come from the bit ... They come from your seat and core. Working on strengthening your core might help you to use your seat more...

    The ones I got seem to have a shorter leather part, so my hands are on the rubber where they should be ...they're just right!

    So, to follow up on my old thread from last summer ...

    I ended up buying the Nunn Finer Pony Reins from Bit of Britain for my jumping bridle, and they are the perfect length for my horse and me...

    Interesting comments about Jean-Luc Cornille ......

    Interesting comments about Jean-Luc Cornille ... I almost posted a thread asking everybody's opinion on him the other day after that "Science of Motion" ad popped upon my Facebook feed for the three...
  6. Yes. This is how I see it as well. This new...

    Yes.

    This is how I see it as well. This new format would be less resource intensive to host, and would be spectator friendly so therefore likely to attract big name sponsors and prize money, and...
  7. I think the issue in question isn't leaving the...

    I think the issue in question isn't leaving the jumps or cavaletti set up after using them ... As I understood it, the barn owner said they can't be at the barn AT ALL ... Even neatly stacked outside...
  8. Let me see if I can articulate the concerns I...

    Let me see if I can articulate the concerns I have with this proposal.

    It isn't that I think that riding in these competitions would somehow make people bad riders or bad horsemen. It also isn't...
  9. I realize it could have been done as a "test"...

    I realize it could have been done as a "test" before, but I thought from reading the article that it is being proposed as an actual recognized division which counts for points (and maybe also can...
  10. Proposed type of recognized event - "DX Eventing"

    http://useventing.com/news/usea-considering-new-program-two-phase-competitions

    Looks like USEA is proposing making a two-phase competition with a combined XC/SJ course an option as a recognized...

    Congratulations on the coming baby!

    And my old guy was still eventing at 19, so there is plenty of time :)
  12. Forgot to mention that I also signed the petition!

    Forgot to mention that I also signed the petition!
  13. I just don't get the constant attempts to...

    I just don't get the constant attempts to restructure eventing into something appealing to the general public. No matter how the competition is formatted, you just aren't going to get the average TV...

    Ugh. Not that I'm surprised at all, but ..... Ugh. :no:
  15. It was proposed, the majority of people thought...

    It was proposed, the majority of people thought it was a dumb idea, and yet ... Here it is again. :rolleyes:

    Renaming eventing isn't suddenly going to give it the commercial appeal of Monday Night...
  16. I'm guessing that the demand for "dumbing down"...

    I'm guessing that the demand for "dumbing down" comes at least in part from people wanting to start out their competition career competing in eventing, or at the very least start eventing early on in...

    He looks like such a lovely boy. Another horse is totally out of the question for me, but I really hope someone is willing to look past the fact that he's a bit older and give him a chance.

    There is no excuse for putting a horse away in that condition! And even if the fact that the wound reopened was not her fault, she should have at the very least let you know, and hopefully...
  19. I hope that is what they are getting at, and that...

    I hope that is what they are getting at, and that seems like a reasonable compromise. I had originally read it as meaning assistance would be allowed up front and not penalized ... Which I disagree...
  20. I'm pretty sure it was referring to having the...

    I'm pretty sure it was referring to having the trainer walk along while you're riding the course. Trainers are allowed to go with you on the course walk!
  21. You're right, I suppose it isn't necessarily...

    You're right, I suppose it isn't necessarily unsafe for the majority of competitors, and might be a good way to give a green horse or rider that has had limited XC schooling but is otherwise well...
  22. Also, does anyone else think allowing additional...

    Also, does anyone else think allowing additional refusals before elimination might potentially create a dangerous situation in which unsafe/unprepared riders are allowed or encouraged to continue? I...
  23. Nope. I might be okay with this sort of thing at...

    Nope. I might be okay with this sort of thing at an unrecognized event, although I think it would be better suited to the lowest of unrecognized divisions (green-as-grass and the like) than to...
  24. Yes. While I'm not really a fan of the whole...

    Yes. While I'm not really a fan of the whole "indoor eventing" concept, I think the wholesale condemnation of Jessica Phoenix as a horsewoman is unfair. Yes, she rode badly to that keyhole fence...

    Except, if I'm not mistaken, Europe does it too.
