    As long as you're not trying to jump into hunter land at the WEF level, probably getting rid of the boots and non-plain cavesson will be good. If you are able to bear the snickers of the teenage...

    Why in the world would you sell it? I would talk to a R judge. You may get a few funny looks from teenage twinkies, but I suspect that a real judge wouldn't even notice, much less penalize you.

    Sorry for your confusion. Here on the COTH forums, in the COTH itself, in Susie Schoellkopf's letter, etc. the regular divisions are almost always referred to as the "professional divisions." My main...

    Maybe if you want to grow the "pro" divisions, you could just call them "Open" or just "divisions". Which is what they are. By calling them "pro" I suspect that a lot of people who just want to show...

    LJ,

    My brother (Who is definitely a respectable pro, not a hacker like me!) had a horse with exactly this problem. He had a bridle modified so that it buckled at the top (Between the ears). Once...

    Am I the only one who thinks that this bridle, in addition to being stunningly expensive, is really ugly?

    Another thought: What if you were using this with some type of gag? Wouldn't that be...

    We had the pony boarded with a friend. Went to "Drop off Sally's present", and there was the pony with a big ribbon around her neck.
    Most of the presents, however, were pony-related so they were not...

    I showed mainly in the '60's. There were never holds or empty rings. Then again, there were hardly any "trainers" either.

    Potential is ALWAYS expensive. Just go to any of the big TB yearling sales. A sound, sane, slow TB still at the track may turn into the $50K superstar or the talent-free $500 model. Being TB's,...

    If you're paying $150/minute or more for your showing experience, you MUST have your trainer watching just because you already paid for it and you need your hand held. No matter how many people it...

    I just get a small bit of radiator hose of the right diameter and slip it over the stirrup bar. Use as much as you have room for, as stirrup bars are not all the same length. I can get about 3/4 inch...

    Not a horse racing term at all. Young boys wear shorts, men wear long pants. So "Putting on long pants" refers to acting like a grown up. Of either sex.

    Many horses get pissed off by a drop/flash/figure eight/micklem type noseband. Have you tried with a plain not-too-tight cavesson or no noseband at all?
