    Royal Festival: DRAT. My husband arrives in the UK on the 8th and we have plans for the whole weekend. Curses!

    Olympia: I'm already planning for that one :)
  2. Fancy dressage shows in my local area? England is my oyster

    I find the FEI Event search tool to be... less than helpful, it is sort of confusing, probably because I have no clue what the acronyms mean. But nevermind because there is more to a good show than...

    Sure, but none of the barns around here are anywhere I want to ride. I want a dressage specific barn, a serious one, with a good trainer with a good horse I can lesson on once a week. That's a...

    *chuckle* Yes, I will still be here, my contract isn't up until fall of that year. You're right, that is a miserable time to visit, but nevermind the best restaurants in the world still serve in...

    Hi Andi, you're not going to be that far from me by American/Canadian standards :). I'm an American, I came here last fall on a two year contract to the local authority, and much to my dismay there...

    No, I haven't, but I will.

    Close and far don't really matter because I want to go to the big international shows and I will be travelling all over the UK and Europe to get there. I am not the...
  7. Pathetic plea for horseshow friends in UK/Europe

    I live in the south of England. I'm an American and all my friends are social workers like me, which is a double disadvantage in life. I'm not riding right now and I probably won't while I live...

    Anyone going to Aachen next month?

    I'd like to go but I don't speak German and I'd really rather not go by myself, and I don't want to subject my poor husband to a horse show of that intensity... anyone going?
  9. Management of aging sport horse in East Bay CA on a budget

    Hello all!

    I own a charming 17 year old TB gelding (photos? Of COURSE!). He raced three years, bowed two tendons, spent 10 years as a gently used school horse, then came to me with a 5 degree...

    A second for Airdance--Lisa (who runs it) is expert at rehab, and a better horse woman is not to be found anywhere. She's the first place I would take my horse if he needed layup.
  11. Sticky: Riderless horse, East Bay CA

    Incredibly sweet horse, great gaits, schooling 2nd level dressage, currently jumping and loving it, also a gold-star trail horse--completely steady mo matter what's going on. Eye-catching and...
  12. Sticky: Bay Area, California: Fun and SAFE dressage/jumping/trail gelding for long-term lease

    I posted this a while ago (it's also an ad on BAEN, obviously), found someone and now due to finances she needs to move on, so here we are again! :D

    If your horse can't handle your leg, they have never really accepted it and (as you've already learned) you can't go far.

    I rode a mare for a while with this problem and whose owner rode as you...

    Are any of the announcements in English? Ir will I have to quickly learn the German phrase for, "the Grand Prix freestyle will be starting in five minutes"? :)
  16. Moving to the UK for two years--shows to hit on vacation in Europe?

    Well, the horse is leased, the work visa is on it's way, and in about a month I will be on my way to England to work for two years as a social worker (it's a shortage occupation, so getting in isn't...

    Since when does confidence only come from a winning ride? Sometimes, the confidence comes from just being able to get on the horse and get in the ring. No matter how "badly" you do once there...

    My first thought was what a LOVELY cross she'd make on Donnerschlag. Beautiful mare.

    Guys, lighten up. She's going to build confidence for herself by getting some experience under her belt. Riding an Intro test is not like trying to ride a GP test on a horse that hasn't been worked...

    I think this is the most important issue. If you're a wuss, who cares as long as your horse isn't going to be worse off for the time off? But if he's an old man who gets stiff standing around, he's...

    Flame away

    Ok, I'm evil, clearly a bad person, but honestly, there are countless young, perfectly sound, well trained animals out there looking for homes. Far, far too many to place them all. If people would...
