    I'm biased, but you really can't go wrong with Hillary Moses. She's incredibly knowledgable, has strong credentials and is a very, very good rider and quiet with the horses. Living in this area, you...

    I started eventing in a similar situation. Instead of looking for events to go to when my horse was very green, I looked for clinics to attend. Clinics offer multiple opportunities for lessons and XC...

    Are you sure about this? It doesn't sound right to me.
    Don't you have to be getting compensated to ride/train horses to be considered a pro? It's been a few years since I studied the amateur rule,...

    Yes, it violates all of the amateur rules. Do you want to be an amateur or do you want to be a professional (i.e., paid to ride)?

    First advanced, at Maui Jim in 2008. My friend and I had trailered 21 hours from Colorado/Wyoming to do our first advanced, with no trainer and just each other to lean on. I'd done the intermediate...

    Strangely, one of the things I remember most about my first CCI* (and it was a long format) was that I didn't realize my horse needed to wear his number whenever he was out of the stall. Kim Morani...

    I just want to throw in a slightly different perspective on why homemade jumps might not be a great idea. My own horse's competitive career ended in an (admittedly freak) accident involving an...

    Interesting. I haven't been thinking of this as a drain on USEA resources, but rather another revenue stream for the organization. If some of the venues offering these now decide to go recognized,...

    It sounds like you might have a fundamental flaw in your understanding. All fences should be ridden forward and in a rhythm, whether on stadium or XC. You can ride forward on a short stride to a...

    This "DX" format isn't dropping dressage. Perhaps people are sighing because you keep saying that and implying it's what we all want since we are, you know, ill-educated eventers.
  11. I hope you are saying this with full awareness...

    I hope you are saying this with full awareness that's exactly what got said about adding training level. And about adding novice... and beginner novice. So, unless you "manned up" and started your...

    I see this as a great idea. I'm clearly in the minority.
    As a longtime resident of Area IX, I would've loved the opportunity to get more than one quick crack at a course I'd driven 4+ hours to...

    You should definitely ask this question on the "I wonder if anything will come of this" thread and the "pros/cons of strong bits XC."
    Just kidding. Don't.
    (But you are getting good advice here.)

    Great post, subk. I think that pretty much hits everything, and I like your proposed solution. Not to bring any names into this thread, but She Who Will Not Be Named come from a world where customer...

    Not disagreeing with you, but I'm having a fascinating time looking through these Kit Houghton photos from the mid-1980s and so far, every pelham I've seen on XC (maybe 15 in the pictures I've looked...

    Bits evolve over time, and bitting/bridling fads rise and fall. (I don't think I ever see Kimberwickes any more, for example; and drop nose bands are few and far between these days, but elevator bits...

    A few random thoughts on this:
    ML's bitting/training/supplementation choices are driven in part by her own ambitions to reach the top of the sport, but also by her need to make and sell horses,...

    Disappointing 4* result for the North American riders after the strong 3* results we've enjoyed over there this fall. But, not entirely surprising for programs that are rebuilding. I'm going to...

    Very good point, RS, and likely part of the reason for the long hold.

    A big congratulations to our US riders for finishing second in the Nation's Cup at Boekelo, and to Matt Brown for finishing 6th overall in his first trip overseas.
