    I agree with this. We certainly have our fill of Olympians, upper level show jumpers and a few top notch hunter trainers in this area. BUT, they are always on the road and are very expensive. There's...

    Totally legit. I have two ponies that were networked through Auction Horses when they were working with a lot in Texas/Louisiana. Sabrina is good people. :)

    I've had two sizable claims, one with Great American and another recent one with Markel, and they were both amazing and easy to deal with. Made my husband and I wonder if we could insure ourselves...

    You may also want to consider there is something wonky going on in the neck. A lot of the symptoms you are describing, that seem to be back end issues, actually start in the neck. Learned this lesson...

    XC technicality has nothing to do with keeping rails up and going fast in showjumping. I've seen more than my fair share of training/prelim amateur eventers (and used to be one), and regardless of...

    Eventing show jumping courses aren't nearly as technical as jumper courses, and there is no jump off so you can't tell how careful a horse is when the speed gets faster and turns get tighter. You...

    If you've ruled out ulcers and other health problems, I find that horses who are reactive like this do best in softer, thicker bits with french links/beans/rollers or something with a low port (like...

    A good high AA (1.10 - 1.15) horse is worth it's weight in gold. It is a huge division, filled with children learning the ropes or AAs who probably won't move up to the AOs due to lack of time or...

    A solid high CH/AA with all the buttons is going to be $40k-$80k range. While theoretically the lead change shouldn't matter, I had a beautiful, tall, super brave, dead quiet jumper with a good low...

    SS, I always say that the internet is both the best and worst thing that has happened to society. I'm sorry, but sadly unsurprised to see that you have been an undeserved victim of that worst part of...

    Add me to the Westporte bandwagon. Just the nicest offspring ever.

    I have a hard time understanding the tizzy over jumping 4 and 5 year olds a few times a week over decent-sized jumps or showing them over 3'3. Considering how hard most of them play in turnout at...

    Agreed, there is nowhere in the southeast that isn't painfully humid in the summer. The "no bugs" part is out, too. The only place I've lived that was mostly free of summer bugs was Northern...

    Wow, based on the comments and the first part of the video I was expecting a horrific crash, due to her horse flinging his head straight up in the air in front of solid fence.

    She didn't "gun it"...

    But it is a lynch mob. There are productive ways to address situations and get things done, and there is the ungodly nastiness that runs rampant here.

    It's a lot of bit, not going to disagree...

    This.

    The COTH Lynch mob has been over the top before, but this one is really beyond the pale. The double-standards applied to this forum's favorites compared to their pariahs is incredible. ...

    I'm on the north end of Alexandria city, and board on the far side of Poolesville. It's about 50 minutes with no traffic. With traffic, can be much, much longer. There was one day recently, a...

    That's a real reach based on a single photo, and frankly, just gossipy and rude. Leave the kid out of it.

    I also want to say that I really feel for Tori. What a cast of awful people and terrible role models she is surrounded by. Given the lack of spine exhibited by her mother in the transcript, it...

    We have a barnful of these mythical creatures - naturally kicking quiet, metronome-canter, amateur packers with pretty knees. They almost all top out at 3'.

    Because god forbid they reduce the transfer of ownership fee to be the same cost as a new registration.

    I wish I had time to take a deep dive into their books and figure out exactly where all the...
  23. USHJA raises membership and horse registration fees

    Just got this lovely gem in my email. I'm still not sure what exactly USHJA does, or how the fee increase is going to make my horse show life better.

    The comments about the upright shoulder are bizarre to me - horses with upright shoulders typically jump very, very well. While horses with more laid-back shoulders may move with a longer stride, it...

    I absolutely love the Kastel shirt I just got- by far the coolest I've worn or tried on. However, I think the SPF is only 30.
