    LOL it's kind of the head/neck position my mare adopted when I was asking her to counterbend on a circle the other day. "NO MOM THAT'S HARD! I DON'T WANNA!" (She's 13, and knows exactly how to do...

    Yes, if you don't know that this is what you need for your horse, see if you can borrow one first. I borrowed one of the Stubbens from my trainer to try with mine, and I'm glad I did before shelling...

    Just wanted to follow up, post-show, in case anyone comes across this in a search and wonders what we did.

    LOL, yellowbritches, that was basically my plan if no one on here had advice! I don't show til a bit later (there are pleasure divisions and a pony class in between) so I have time to change attire...

    Well, in my case, I basically poked around her site, and what I wanted was kind of a combination of things she'd already done. So I emailed and explained that I'd loved the other pad I'd bought, and...

    I'll second the recommendation of Two Socks Designs! I got a "stock" custom pad off their Etsy store that I liked so well, I contacted her to do a custom show pad design for us, for...

    TIP/TB In-Hand?

    I'm planning on going to a local show this weekend to get our hooves back in the hunter ring this year, after a few injuries prevented us from getting going earlier in the season. One of the...

    How has no one mentioned the MANDARIN ORANGE CHICKEN!?! It is the best food ever created. Mmmm.

    I also like the Triple Ginger Snaps, the Speculoos cookies (and the Cookie Butter), the Maple Leaf...

    Not in the same context, but occasionally at Events, I haven't had the time to swap (and occasionally desire to clean/schlep) tack between Dressage and SJ/XC, so I've done my Dressage in my jumping...

    I don't remember that, but I know that in the BigEq classes, they've banned the bling. IMVHO, all that sparkly is way more distracting than a monogram, or even a logo.

    My SO suggested an LLC, with my initials ;) I said it was easier (and cheaper!) to file a rule change proposal. After the fact, I'm not sure about the "easier" part of that, but it was worth a try....

    I was actually peeved enough about the "no monogram" thing that I submitted a rule change proposal to allow them. Don't know if anything will come of it, but I tried.

    ALL my show pads (except...

    I'd actually say for a horse without any show record (which it doesn't sound like this one has?) she might actually get more interest/$$ from eventers than straight H/J folks, if it's at least been...

    I've gotten both a card and an email in the last couple days. I just trashed both of them; sorry, USEF has my contact information, I'm certainly not calling to verify it. If they wanted to do that,...

    Was this held in the same arena as the Dressage, or are there two arenas in the same building? Because while I haven't seen any of the jumping video, I did watch video of Charlotte's freestyle on...

    The poor staff were totally unprepared, and they were so understocked it wasn't even funny. The one by me--which serves part of DC, Arlington, eastern Fairfax county, so huge population centers--got...

    I don't think the lighting is any darker than, say, "Amadeus" or "Barry Lyndon," both of which used natural lighting. It's not dark, it's just not the modern, fluorescent lit set lighting you're...

    I don't understand it for a leaner, either. I borrowed one from my trainer to try as a jumping bit, where we do actually need just a little more oomph to my my half-halt than we do when in the...

    Is the horse missing the eye, or just blind in it? I've known a couple with one blind eye that have done quite well once they've adapted. One did the Childrens, and is doing some lower jumper stuff...

    Yeah, I've had that belt as my "show belt" for at least two years. No idea I was ahead of the trend! It does hold up quite well, for the price.

    At most local shows/events here, there aren't stalls available. So the times there are, I haven't bothered. I might do it once this year, so we can stay overnight and show two days, without hauling...
