    How does it work exactly when someone buys breeding rights but not 100% of the horse itself?

    I would take the nutty horse for the same reasons other have suggested: you may learn some techniques for helping her relax. I wouldn't go trying to learn more advanced things. I think if you can get...

    That was my experience. What is up with that? As knowledgable as he seems to be, why do so many people have a problem with the fittings he does?

    A a reflocking price of $350, don't bother. Find something where you can use a local fitter without voiding anything.

    I have recently started a fitness program specifically for riding. I wish I would have done this in my earlier days. I do feel a benefit now, but it would have been nice to feel this sooner.

    Walkie Talkie systems on the cheap?

    A friend of mine is looking for something around the $100 mark. Is there anything out there at that price point? I know some nice systems that go for $300+ (my trainer has one) but that's more than...

    IMHO whatever works is what happens.

    I'm 5'3" and not particularly leggy for my height, so I try to ride with as long a stirrup as I can so that I have more leg on the horse.

    Look at it this way, I think one has a higher probability of success in a specific ring by buying a horse who was purposely bred for that same ring. Not every WB bred for dressage will move up the...

    I've been to some clinics that were amazing and some that were a total waste of money.

    I'd audit first to get an idea of the person's style and then decide if they would be right for you or not....

    In some ways I think AP's post position wasn't so great. It's very easy to get boxed in early in the race. In this case though, VE did a great job of getting out of the gate.

    Maybe another way I could have asked the question is - why do people think there were several TC winners in the 70's? Superstar horses in an otherwise average field or something else?
