    The Carolina Hoofbeats article has good advice, which should be followed. The right of inspection and vet care provisions are particularly important. To add to those provisions, in agreements I've...

    Sounds like you've decided to make the change. Now you need to decide where is the right place for you and your pony to land. :)

    45 miles, drive is 50 minutes with no traffic, and I go to the barn 3 times per week usually. My horses are in a great barn with excellent care and a trainer I love, so the trek is worth it for me....

    Do they also have a rule that says the horse has to be on the competition grounds 96 hours before competing? Because that would be a problem -- who shows up 4 days before a show unless you've...

    I'm in the "my horse loves this bridle" camp. My youngest homebred (5 year old BWP) has always been fussy in her head. After some time off to let an injury heal, we put her in the Micklam as a...

    I doubt very much that they have something against electrolytes. Not that I have any specific knowledge (I don't), but I'm guessing they have a zero tolerance policy and this rule prevents the...

    I don't think there is a "correct" way to measure rein length. Some manufacturers may just measure differently than others. I would tend to not include the loop part, since what I care about is how...

    I don't think the OP was saying that she doesn't want to split costs with other clients or wants or deserves all the trainer's attention because she has multiple horses. Instead, she was saying that...

    Mary Kate Cropper is listed as a Horse Recording Specialist with the USEF. Try emailing her from a new email. It's likely the email was sent in error to your address instead of the intended one.

    I also often bring multiple horses to shows (usually only 2, maybe 3 once in a great while). My trainer divides it up by whether having the extra horse(s) involves extra work or expenses. That is,...

    You also need to distinguish between the fees the USEF or USHJA charge and the fees show management charges. The only show fees that go to USEF are the D&M fees ($16), zone fee ($2), and (if...

    The proposed new rules (discussed at the Town Hall) address sudden, unexplained collapse at competitions, which may be caused by misuse of drugs or "natural" injectable substances.

    There are remarkably few course design books. An old favorite of mine is Christopher Coldrey's Courses for Horses. Also, Linda Allen and Di Dennis's book, 101 Jumping Exercises for Horse and Rider...

    Hey, I'm an Amurican and I like F-1! But yeah, I know that I'm in the minority there, just like all of us are in the minority if we like watching horse shows. And frankly, I don't really like...

    The USEF is trying to fight that war, as was the subject of the recent USEF townhall (which I think is still available online from the USEF website). The D&M Committee has proposed new rules to try...

    Maybe I'm misunderstanding you suggestion, but isn't that exactly how the organizations currently operate? That is, the USEF is the umbrella organization (and National Governing Body) which licenses...

    I'm with some of the others in that my trainer and I have the exact same saddle, so they are interchangeable. They fit my two youngsters and many other horses well, but were not great on my new guy....

    On insurance, while I certainly don't know for sure, it is likely that the owner did not have loss of use insurance on the pony. If they did, the insurer would have been very picky about binding...
