    I just took my young horse to his first away show. He showed all last year with his former owners, but only at one day shows, so this was new for him. I have not done an away show since I was a...

    She is nice, but yes- it looks like she would be quite a project. She is big and heavy and seems like she would be hard to package for an equitation-type ride without a lot more training. Her jump...

    Mileage and time are the best bet if you are unable to school lots of things at home.

    However, you can actually do a lot to make scary/interesting jumps at home. Build a liverpool, drape coolers...

    If people would read all of the posts they would see that the OP did talk to the trainer, and heard from that person that it is impossible to be in a big show program without using drugs, and has...

    OP, your updated post certainly makes sense, but you have to admit that what you said in the beginning was not that you are worried your career will suffer if someone gives your horses drugs without...

    Well, OverandOnward, I simply don't believe that the only or best way to change something is to walk away. It may be nice to be standing all alone and silent up on the moral high ground, but if no...

    Well, again, though- because some people drug does that mean the best response is to reject the entire discipline?

    There are a couple of different things happening here- one is that the OP saw an...

    Codex One is incredible. One wouldn't know he had just jumped two really big tracks prior to that jump off.

    This coverage is so good- you could see how Margie came down a bit soon in the replay and Royce got that rail.

    Hah- I saw the nose thing with Ludger B., too. That Fibonacci horse has quite a jump- and what a stride! MMB looked like her tiny little self was about to get flipped off several times!

    I thought he looked a little off, but he had just done a header, rolled, and flipped over, so he was probably feeling a sting. Poor guy!
