    It's a terrible picture because she's coming out of being drugged for a tooth floating and furry and a bad angle. However, the angle shows well how filled in she is in front of/above the hips. This...

    I might sponsor Jeremy Steinberg so HE can afford to compete at that level.


    There's a certain top percentage of talent required, and even the very wealthiest can't compete at that level...

    Good start! You don't happen to live in AZ, do you? Our org here did that, because they are trying to be inclusive of everyone they can. They also have things like trailer safety and first aid...

    VERY good point. My gelding doesn't have ideal conformation (but certainly has athletic conformation), but his innate sense of balance and coordination makes a massive difference. His desire to...

    I don't know enough about gaited horses to know if some have a conformation which prevents them having w/t/c gaits. If so, that would prevent a horse from doing true dressage work, as the gymnastic...

    I have a very hot (14 this year) gelding who has been just on the thin side of perfect his whole life. For the first time ever, he is a good weight.

    In his case, it's because even with free feed...

    I come here with body armor on, but this morning am a bit amazed at the board. Did we all get overwrought over the super bowl or disappointment in the commercials?! :lol:



    Absolutely. I've...

    I didn't realize you were already doing a freestyle! Good luck - I hope you have as much fun with it as I THINK you will have! :)

    I think the article was written by someone who is a pessimist who looked at articles written by Jeremy in addition to interviewing and only shared his negative comments. I think it was last year he...

    I used poles to get my gelding light to lateral aids. But they were set up like a dotted line, and I would do shallow zig zags between them. Because of my western/competitive trail part of my...

    The title confused me. Then I read the post.

    HA!

    I hope no one does that to their poor horse.

    Outside vs inside aids. For shoulder in, the inside leg is what puts the movement in the direction you want (and combined with your seat is what encourages the hind leg to step under, the point of...

    No one said showing is unimportant/doesn't matter. However, he was showing until the point he became the US youth/young rider coach and the NZ high performance coach. He no longer was able to show,...

    Not so good at math? I'd say $10k/year is inexpensive, not $1000 which I have never even heard of as possible anywhere for anyone.

    A $150k mortgage will have payments around $1300/month, not...

    Agreed. Our adult symposiums or whatever they're called were always poorly timed and poorly attended if they were even within a semi-reasonable distance. However, my GMO makes a profit on two...

    My mare's trot was by far her worst gait under saddle, and we sat it at first. She tended to get off balance from any unevenness, which included posting. Because she needed that evenness, sitting...
