I have had several experiences with Lyme disease in my horses.
If a "probem"
A - develops suddenly
B - goes away completely after treatment for Lyme
C - stays "gone" for an extended period
WHY would you even consider "throwing them out"?
What do you think could wear out?
I have some newer ones, but the studs I use most often are 30 years old.
I think she means that, for instance, owner A paid for Jan, Feb, Mar, then horse was claimed. Owner B paid for April May, then horse was claimed. and so on.
What works for me is to think "knees down" instead of "heels down".
What is an offset dee?
If you are showing a true "collected trot" or a true "medium trot" when a the test calls for "working trot", you are likely to be penalized.
But there is nothing inherent in a "solid first level"...
Horses with short strides usually ALSO have a quick rhythm.
In that case I would focus first on SLOOOWING down the rhythm.
If you don't use shampoo, you will not mess up the waterproofing.
Both "correctness" and "effect" are nouns, and correctly used in this phrase.
"Affect" would be incorrect in this phrase.
The OP asked about "low levels". Most people would not consider "above Fourth Level" to be "low level.
Here are the rules for Fourth and below:
Pretty clear to me that BROWN boots are...
First, 1/3 of the VALUE may be more or less that 1/3 of the PURCHASE price.
But the total money invested in the hores (e.g. show career that establishes the value) is likely to be much more than...
The poll allows you to pick myltiple answers.
MY horses seem to think that 40 degree rain is fine.
They have free access to the stalls if they want them.
But, more often than not, they stay out in the field.
I have lost track of how may...
You left out a key factor: wind.
When they had access to shelter, did they use it a lot?
If there is little wind, and they tended to stay out of the shelter when they had the choice, I would...
Not surprising. Something similar happened to me. A judge with a straight dressage license may not be aware of changes in the eventing rules.
Just want to point out that "rules gurus" ALSO check the rulebook before giving advice.
I had a positive experience 45 years ago. Does that count?
I was in high school, and teaching a few lessons a week on my horse.
The neighor, who was a lawyer, drew up a release for us. He also...
I beg to differ.
At Upperville the warm up jumps WERE flagged.
It needs to be 16 CONTINUOUS hours of light, and the light needs to be directly overhead.
You will need to blanket as well.
Music is under lights for other reasons.
There is a light in her...
I agree with that.
But I do not think there is any signifcant correlation between THAT kind of "pulling" and hind end strength.
Before WWII, almost all the WB "breeds" were developed as CAVALRY horses.
SOME of the horses pulled artilliery and ceremonial carriages, but MOST of them were "officer's mounts".
So am I. But one of the riders in the clinic told me he would NOT be available on Saturday because of the Mary King clinic.
So I want to make doubly sure, from the organizer herself, before...
What does your vet say?
Belle "stretched" her check ligament in late March, 2013.
We started trotting in late September 2013
We started cantering in late January 2014
We started small jumps in...
It is a few years ago now, but yes, you can trailer-in at Upperville.
Can you please clarify the dates.
Is is Th and Fri, Nov 20 and 21, as the other threads and announcements say?
Or is it Fri and Sat, (Nov 21 and 22) as you say in this thread?
