    Building on the disharmony conversation:

    We tend to focus on the phenotype a lot. How measurements of parts compare to measurements of other parts. What angles the horse has in its natural...

    Dressage rider here, reporting for duty. I love polo wraps. They protect against minor brushing and knocks, and I can just throw them in the wash and grab another pair for tomorrow instead of dealing...

    Unrelated great news: Chip (the slightly used border collie that moved in with us) is now officially in the AKC PAL. Hurray!

    Derail away.

    Unfortunately, Erie's a bit far (90+ miles) so I've signed us up for something local first. If the showing-bug really bites, we'll look into something a bit more competitive.

    Thanks for the feedback, everyone! Also feel free to keep posting photos/videos of your dogs. They're adorable.



    This is apparently what's happening. My sheltie isn't fast, but he's a champion...

    That's not what I meant to convey or imply, and if I did that's my bad.

    The issue isn't who won. The issue is that better performances of the same pair were scored lower than their earlier,...

    I went to a clinic of his where he essentially gave his own interview (or at least I really recognized some of the quotes from the article). His issue with Parzival wasn't that he was robbed at the...
  8. Agility peeps: talk to me about starting off

    Hey COTH!

    Some backstory:
    My boyfriend and I lucked into a wonderful border collie (who may be purebred, but we don't have papers). Like many of his breed, he needs an outlet, and has a natural...

    Lots of good points everywhere here, and I think much of the stylistic differences between posters may have to do with their horses' inherent tendencies.

    You've really just got to know whether...

    You're "talking" to a different person. I've asked you 0 questions.

    While this may be true, they're also probably not writing multiple articles about showing/competitions if they truly believe competition just isn't that important.

    Unrelated to showing pet peeves, but I've just taken your suggestion in my day-to-day rides to make sure my mental clock corresponds with the real passage of time.

    My horse is now shocked that...

    My biggest peeve: limited aisle space, crowded with other people's stuff/chairs/coolers. It's a tent barn, guys; there will be horses moving in and out of the stalls, so don't get so huffy if I ask...
  14. Because the canter loads the hind legs...

    Because the canter loads the hind legs asymmetrically, it can reveal some hind end unsoundness that's masked in the trot or walk. And sometimes that reveal is via forging on the forehand or bucking....

    I have a wiggler, too. Actually she's more of a ricochet horse-- give one aid and she pings off it in extremes. Shoulder in easily becomes a leg yield along the wall if I'm not careful.

    With her,...

    This is pretty funny considering that here in the US, some (not all, I know, I know) Dutch horses have a reputation for being crazy/difficult/high strung/etc.

    Different strokes for different...

    If you really trust your trainer, you may want to consider offering your mare up for lessons. Usually there is a fee associated with each lesson, and you'd know that she's getting appropriate rides. ...

    My pony had a similar issue when she was younger (3-4 yo). I made it a habit to ask her to back up several times while walking to/from turnout as a mild form of exercise that really strengthens the...

    I used to have pretty strong mental boundaries about what is and is not dressage. Still do, in some cases, but as to levels? Every time I reach a new one-- or get on a new horse-- I just realize how...

    The 2016 federal mileage rate for work travel is $0.54/mile. If you're making $25 for this, you're undercutting yourself on just mileage alone by $2.

    I'm absolutely with NoSuchPerson on this one.

    Count me in! Trained and showed my own horses from training through GP-- though I've only made 1 GP horse so far.

    There's a lot of talk on this board, but there's a lot of walkers too.

    "Classical" music has different meanings depending on context-- it has generalized to mean "pretty much any instrumental, operatic, or old-sounding choral piece", but more specifically refers to...

    This reads like a very black-and-white interpretation of the way things are. Especially the "they have already trained the horse not to curl under" part. We're riding living breathing animals with...

    The horses don't know (or care, probably) about what the ideal passage looks like. They don't look at other superstars in the warmup and take a hit to their self-esteem because their piaffe isn't the...
