    When picking up "bargain"horses, bad trims and poor saddle fit are just par of the course. A horseman with a good eye sees past those things.

    Yes, agree with PhoenixFarm about the vet costs. When you put that much into a horse, you don't wait and see when stuff is wonky. And you don't use subpar (inexpensive) vets. You go with the best....

    The second fence was massive - and for it to be second was a bit of a surprise to many of the horses. ET misjudged but was nonplussed by it - just pushed off of it without batting an eye. Good Irish...

    High fives to Consensus for making the decision for his rider - thankful for the "run out." That was super scary riding (or lack of riding).

    I did the Waredaca T3D a couple of years ago and it was awesome.
    I really don't' know why you would drive all the way to KY or NC for a T3D when an excellent and very well-established and -run one...

    Ha Ha. I think highly of Dr A too …. But there is a reason that he is known as "Dr. Doom & Gloom."

    Depends on what kind of vetting you want and how much you really want the horse.

    If the horse is a candidate for ***/**** and/or Olympics, then take him to VEI where you will spend thousands and...

    Yes, the Figure 8 Wrap is great to remind horses that they have a hind end. You can use it under saddle and on the lunge. I used it with a...

    Lots and lots of leg yielding! At the trot. Make him go FORWARD! And then ask him to move his hiney over. Work with someone (your trainer I'm assuming) who really has their dressage basics down to...

    Thanks Groom.

    I read the first couple of pages of the BB thread on it and threw up in my mouth a little.

    Just, gross.

    I'm sorry, I am way out of the loop. Can someone please explain what went on in Wellington that he wants to emulate? I thought that Wellington was all just dressage and hunter/jumper.

    I love walking fences. I was also introduced to it by Lucinda. It really does give you a good feel for the movement that is involved - you really get to feel their back working. It's not that hard to...

    This.

    I'm glad TA has been directed into a more suitable career. I saw him at Rolex in 2013 - just a few fences from home - the fence before Boyd retired him - and boy, that was ugly. He was/is a...

    PSA - the word 'Data' = plural noun.

    There are no data = :) correct.

    There is no data = :dead: not correct.

    OMG, I just watched Tik Maynard's round. It was like The Hunger Games meets Eventing. Just scary, sad, and garish all at once. And nice way to "showcase" eventing with someone who gallops flat and...
