    What faraway says.
    It's probably true that our ( or anyone's) best riders got that way because they just knew. They feel it, and they feel it far enough out that adjustments are seamless. Without...

    It isn't OK to pat your horse in an eq class, but it is OK to drug them senseless?

    What's wrong with this picture?

    In all these examples, the PEOPLE are making the choice to drug themselves. In the land of 10X10 stalls, and weeks on the road with no turnout, the people are still making the choice. But they aren't...

    I'm sorry. And I'm a dinosaur. But what could be more inviting than a nice AA level hunter fence? Great groundlines, pretty fill, correct distances, not too big. If you (or your omniscient trainer)...

    Torano vs. Torano

    Otter Creek GP in Vermont.

    2.2 seconds between them in the jumpoff.

    Danielle on Woodstock was quicker than Jimmy on Bentley.

    Congrats.

    And be sure to cut the straps off. Since you shouldn't be wearing it, neither should anyone else!

    All I know for sure is that when I put a 3/4 in piece of radiator hose on the stirrup bar ahead of the leather it made a big difference. You can try that and see if it helps for under a buck.

    So was there an alligator under the first part of that combination?

    That is the reason, and in 12 years of hunting I never saw or heard of anyone getting stabbed. Besides, what good does it do if you have a bandage/sling and no way to secure it?

    On the other hand,...

    I got caught once with an old sandwich. Chicken, no mayo, but from a previous show. Judge gave me the option of not losing a place if I would actually eat it. Even though I was about 12 at the time,...

    How's this for a bit of heresy: I think that the severity of rotational falls would be decreased if speeds were increased. Look at the falls in actual steeplechasing: much more speed, fewer...

    I, too , am inclined to go first with pain- ulcers, saddle pinch, kissing spine, old injury.

    But I still haven't seen any mention of turnout. Specifically 24/7 with a calm buddy and grass to eat.

    Why longe at all? This horse is broke to ride and lungeing is obviously creating unhappiness for him. Just get on and get on with your regular starting-out flatwork.

    People have been bringing in fresh horses for the Belmont and Preakness forever. Why stop now just because an "outsider" got beaten by one?

    There will never be outside courses again because it doesn't fit with the factory show "hunter" mentality. It would slow down the process and possibly be inconvenient for the trainers. Real outside...

    You do know that landing on the correct lead isn't new, right? Back in the '60's (that I know of) landing on the wrong lead and having to change was a big NONO. For that matter, so was landing...
