    One of the last barns where I boarded a horse happened to include an apartment where I lived. It was a very well-built Morton barn, initially built by a Saddlebred person, and it had an attached...

    Agree. Pick something that isn't garish or apt to clash, and go with it. By the time I hung up my irons I was pretty much down to black and white with the faintest hints of hunter green.
  5. Less than perfect

    I haven't evented in 10 years, but I can say the majority of dressage rings within my area weren't on manicured, groomed surfaces. Many were on grass. Often on slopes. Let's face it, they were often...

    Only Been Once ...

    I've only been once, but Member tickets made parking/access in a real breeze.

    I had to take the train from Stamford to Peterborough to London after the event (with all of my luggage for the week...

    You've gotten some great advice and I definitely would encourage you to seek out an ART practitioner.

    Since you can't "point your toe", you actually can't plantar flex your ankle. The muscles...

    Sorry, that was the point I was trying to sarcastically make - there has always been such a stigma in the h/j world that event horses are sub-par. And that now "It only took a week to make him/her a...

    Do you know what I find obnoxious? The fact that Marcia Kulak "converted" him in less than a month. OMG really? Between this and Amber Eyes it makes me just want to line everyone up on a bridge and...

    I totally concur. He was 31. What else could you expect?

    Is he too narrow for your CWD? Sorry, I didn't catch why it didn't fit him other than the width was off.

    My Albion Show-Jumper in the NMTB tree has fit many horses such as you describe.

    Too small for me. :) I didn't see a huge difference between 17" and 18".



    I won't disagree. What was your injury? I did ride in a saddle for a while that likely caused a mild labral tear in my...

    This made me smile and laugh! Love it, and you look wonderful.

    yeahyeahyeah.

    Surprisingly, my 18" didn't feel very different from my 17.5". Or my 17". We're talking about an inch here. :D

    How very very exciting! I will keep my fingers crossed indeed. I have loved everything I've seen about Gravitas, and loved Louis (Future Illusion) when I got to visit him up-close-and-personal at...

    Frances,

    I am so happy for you, your team, and especially the horses. I was actually quite disappointed with the Burghley test results because I really wanted to see Jock win in Kentucky. It is a...

    Winsome Adante by Saunter, a full TB sire, out of Juswith Genoa, now owned by Julia Hodkin. Genoa is, IIRC, a TB x ISH cross. Primmore's Pride (my personal favorite event horse ever!) is by Fair Oak...
  19. Permanent Fix

    If you want to fix it permanently, you're going to have to put and keep your leg on her even though she's curling up on you. Heavy/curling/leaning at a gallop is essentially the same thing as being...

    What is your natural anatomical position, standing? It sounds as if you have a posterior tilt to your pelvis (do you tend to have a chair seat?) which, if you do, will take work to improve, but I am...

    I love you so much! Come stay with me if you need a break, or if you want to spend a weekend being strategic. Having known you for nearly 10 years, and having watched you ride for at least that many...

    I do like the idea of dowels placed into the outside of the standard (drilled at an angle) at the height interval, and would use chain instead of rope, which has a tendency to stretch.

    Also, I finally go the page to load. How is the pin/bolt any different than a regular jump cup? Girl! I know things happen, but if you're worried about running up on the pins on the backside of a...

    A to the Men.

    I would much rather impale on steel instead of plastic (or any other material prone to splintering).

    I have amassed all kinds of body clippers over the past 20 years. I actually prefer different clippers for different horses, but the clippers I've enjoyed using most recently are the Lister Legend.
