    I'm not sure what your breeding goal is, but it seems to be to produce upper level jumpers. I would not breed to a dressage stallion to hope for an upper level jumper even if you've had luck with de...

    Like, curl the nose in to the chest, so the ears point below the poll??? I'm thinking you made a typo. I'm just not sure what you meant to say!

    The poll should be the highest part of of the neck...

    Riders have also gotten their "patch" from riding as a team member at international nations cups (like Aachen last year, but as far as I know, not for the one in Wellington). This results in a lot...

    The hay I feed in oklahoma wasn't grown there (I've never fed oklahoma grown alfalfa, but it is cheaper). It's $9-10 a bale from ID and $10 a bale shipping, so $20 a bale (20 to a ton). From AZ, $24...

    Very well could be a fractured splint that is already remodeling. Might need a month off, but the rehab after is minimal to none. Jingles for you!

    I bought one last month from hypostore in Holland. It was $115. You have to email US orders, but they were great to deal with. 2 blankets, shipping boots, halter, lead and bridle were $30 to ship to...

    Are you working with a good trainer that helps you progress and also schools the horse for you to help you through challenges? If not, I'd highly recommend sending him to boot camp for a couple of...

    Ritalin works really well... Just kidding!

    He probably needs some entertainment and a regular change of scenery. I've also seen pain (often ulcers) that causes very ADD type behavior.

    The buyer can ask the vet whatever they want. We're making the assumption that the vet was giving unsolicited advice. It's very likely that the client initiated the concern about the price as some...

    Hopefully the vet was looking at more than temperament, but vets who have been working in the field for their career can have a pretty good judge of horse character. Riding is a standard part of the...

    I don't known when you arrive on the 28th, but if it's early, the hanoverian koerung of 3 and 4 year olds is starting at 9 in Verden.

    I'd write down the pros and cons of each. It may very well answer your question. I've done two. One I knew exactly what I was getting and I did that one. The other I won't know and the consequences...

    Just take a good skim of the rule book, so you don't get a TE and don't be afraid to ask questions to the office, TD, stewards, vet or otherwise at the show. Good luck!

    I haven't seen it, so I may very well find it amusing as well, but my impression to what sounds like a fully naked man sitting on a horse, is that it's inappropriate.

    Watching Guenter last weekend, his horse seemed very green to GP. Even at I-2, the piaffe would be low scoring (due to more than a meters worth of forward movement). I think the horse oozes with...

    I would not support a stallion owner that made that decision. There are hundreds ( thousands?) of pre-teen girls that swoon over the stallion ads every spring. Its not appropriate.
