This might be true, but what does the Horse Park have to do with a clinic about 10 miles away?
$1130 for a 30 minute lesson and a group jumping session? And stabling not included in that fee?
'Good luck to all applicants!'? It's more like: good luck finding applicants!
Because it's pretty damn pretentious. That's why.
Also from the web page, under 'Attire Policy':
For a clinic.
Does anyone know if that policy is for auditors as well as riders? I'd hate to show up unbraided and unjacketed and get...
This is smart thinking.
While it's not necessary to have a regular trainer of similar body type, you can really get useful -- and often unusual, in that it's stuff you wouldn't have thought...
I'd go if there was a group for fat horses. But once again, the plus-sized are discriminated against. :mad:
I think Frankie knew a thing or two about Treve, and rode his horse so she'd be likely to fall short.
Dettori rode a really nice race, and well done also to John Gosden on his first Arc win.
Dover should know better than to let its sales folk say sh*t like this.
The real place to discuss this is with Dover, not here. Please follow up with them. :)
USEA should just scrap the whole damn pageant.
There's no need for a national championships at the LLs, and AECs have been going on long enough to demonstrate that it's just not a feasible...
Another child doomed to a lifetime of spelling. At least it's only three letters.

This is an absolutely hilariously terrible song in all respects but the chorus might be exactly what you're looking for in those moments: Nazareth -- Hair of the Dog
It is too a scam if you're promoting this as a 'free' 'giveaway'.
The answer to this word problem is very simple: get a new trainer.
You want the Tuff Rider tall boots. Usually about $150-160.
I used to have MH but these are so much better.
That's not what I'm saying. It's actually the opposite of what I'm saying.
This thread is a reminder to me that my great mentors in the horse world are people who have had long lives with horses, done all kinds of things that might be seen as 'risky' or 'dangerous', yet...
Well, in that case, I'd rather not be considered a 'true eventer'.
I'm an EMT and I don't agree with you here.
Yes, there is much on-the-job humor. But no, when you see a subset of the population seeming to brag about their (repeated) injuries, you look at it...
Hehe. I was told that a number of these came up in background checks for the Pan Ams. So the raw material is out there.
(Not talking about one notorious 'Canadian' here. American riders.)
And not yuk-yuk. Just yuck.
Last year’s Hickstead Derby victor wins one-day event
Very cool. This is a very versatile horse -- he's won both the Eventing Grand Prix and Derby at Hickstead -- and then his...
Burghley 1999 with the death trap obstacle was LF. There was plenty of 'technicality' on display.
Here's Burghley 1966. Headgear is apparently optional.
Here's a little study of the evolution...
Have you tried getting her legs wet before she goes in water? All it takes is a hose.
Some horses don't like the initial wet sensation on their legs. (My dog feels this way about wet grass.) ...
If you need to use specific banned/threshold substances, you can get a TUE -- Therapeutic Use Exemption. This isn't difficult but you do need a doctor to sign off on it.
