    And I should add, it would be a very very rare trainer indeed who was able to offer all of those things at the time a rider needed them. People have different strengths and we should use those...

    Like alot of other things, I don't think any one trainer/method necessarily answers ALL the questions we have when we use them in isolation. But taking lessons with a biomechanics trainer might then...

    I was a little bit surprised at Jock's selection too, but then I went back and looked at the criteria for selection and its based on results from 1 January 2013 along with horse soundness etc. So I...

    I'm not speaking for anyone's motivations in the whole thing, but I'm pretty damn sure "making money" is definitely not part of it! No one will be making money of this, loads of people will be...

    Its a useful exercise when you are on your own riding a lot, or if you are unaware of the moment that your leg is flying back. I use cotton thread. You don't need something super strong, the point...

    I don't think people are going "yay only half the field finished!" I think its more a case of "why did only half finish" and the answer is two-fold. Firstly the course was hard, it was definitely a...

    Thing is I don't think the statistics represent the course in this particular case at all. What the statistics don't say is "and all these retirements are because these riders are choosing to...

    Must admit it would be way easier to buy into the feed/supplement contamination theory if it wasn't for two horses, from two different yards owned by the same owner being involved. But for now I...

    Guess I have more faith in the commitment of the riders sitting at the level just beneath Todd and Nicholson.
    Yep they lost funding. And as soon as they don't win an Olympic medal they will lose...

    Oh lordy don't pay any attention to the NZ Herald! They wouldn't know what journalism is if it smacked them in the face lol Plus that's just an opinion column so even less credible than usual.

    My impression was that the comments were aimed at the spin the FEI and ESNZ have put on it through their media releases than at Jock. Probably not his wisest PR move ever, but not sure that he's...

    Often when we are trying to fix a habit, it will feel over-exaggerated and wrong for a while. Like people who lean forward all the time, you tell them to lean further back until they are sitting...

    I think that the right stirrup in the first few photos, she is squashing the flexible bit in with her leg. And the left stirrup in the last photo I think she is half in, half out of it so the...

    NZ TB yes, but I don't think he's off the track, he's a Zabalu so sporthorse (eventer/jumper) bred.

    While I don't know the specifics, there was an article in the local mag a few months ago...

    I don't see what might have been dangerous about Mary King's ride through the water in that video? All that's going on (and it happens all through the course at combinations) is that if she slips...
