    My problem with this is that I AM the owner and sponsor. I can't afford VIP tents. Sure, there are always some people in every sport with more money. But I always felt in Eventing you could...

    I agree with these perspectives.

    In Britain, Mark Todd is writing articles in Horse & Hound complaining that there isn't enough prize money in eventing. He is asking for some of the gate-money to...

    Given all of the above, goodmorning, I agree with you & Denny and I'm afraid for our sport, more than ever.

    This may be a little unfair of an assessment. Perhaps the regular rider's schooling of the horse, after disappointing performances, has been the reason for his current success with a catch rider.

    I'll be the voice of dissent. Michael Jung was amazing, no doubt. He is at the top of his game. But I don't know if he should or ought to be emulated. There was much discussion here about how many 4*...

    I prefer hook studs, for the cleaner look. I also find them easier to undo than buckles a lot of the time.

    But I can say with certainty I don't like clips, as I had one break on me just last...

    I worked at a racing yard for a while and the Irish head lad's name was Eamonn. Pronounced ay-mawn.

    But always keep in mind horse show announcers with pronunciation.

    What's his barn name? I like doing plays on words with the barn & registered names.

    E.g. my last horse's barn name was Toddy (after Mark Todd) and his registered name was On the Mark.

    Then I have to go find the code, it's a...

    Geez, I feel for George here. He has given to the sport (and been paid, I'm sure) well into his 70s, when most others would have retired long ago.

    Now he wants to do a different project that will...

    That reminds me...

    The "no medicine" rule is so strict, many riders simply adopt feeding their horse hay and straight oats or barley; it's much harder to accidentally contaminate your horse.

    Frankly, I think you could become the leader of the pack/centre of attention if you just brought a blender and some mixer to the next event. You'd have a pack of new friends in no time.

    I have been considering getting one of those. What model do you have?

    Also most of our events still have stabling made out of fenceposts and poles, so there isn't anywhere to put a set-up anyway....
