    I've had a little experience with Master Imps and I'd say they ought to xray this horse's limbs a bit and they will find why he is stopping. Just my experience. And I don't care how sound he is. I...

    Well, I have a runner's one - Road ID. I love it. Sturdy, nylon, velcro adjust, plastic loop, and the outer trim threads are actually glow in the dark we found out. I bought the very cheapest model,...

    The first thing I look at in the morning and the last thing at night - my horses' soundness. Of course I have them in the backyard, too!

    I think most of us would be shocked at what passes the vets and stewards at horse shows and events. We "Head Bob" purists would get laughed off the planet if we were back stage at Rolex, etc.

    Area II. Can't go wrong. Biggest eventing area in the country and an event darn near every weekend somewhere all year. Lots of trainers in lots of great barns and if you don't like where you land,...

    Viney, I think this was all set up for the horses. And I think it's smart. First of all July in Virginia can be steamy and hot. We absolutely do not want to cook horses before the WEG competition -...

    Whereever you land, best of luck! We all have to make our way, and find the bumps and the good times...but there is a whole lotta crap in the horse world, I'm hoping you land well. Go where your best...

    I can't say enough good about JRP and how she picked me up and spanked butt and said, here, ride this one and then again found me another one and kicked my butt a second time with two outstanding...

    Scubed is feeling grateful. I daresay, a lot of Area II events are quite enhanced by her generous gift of time as she volunteers everywhere! Wish I could do as much as BFNE and Scubed; I'm pretty...

    They would be looking for qualities of scope, boldness, ground cover, rideability...not so much little mistakes, but a stop, or proppy fence or serious look by a horse is counted against.

    In reading these excellent replies I can see that the way we are -- who we are -- probably has a lot to do with who we ride with. We all need to recognize the bully culture, though even if we...
  14. What's the meanest thing anyone has said to you as an eventer? (or wannabe)

    There are clinicians and trainers everyone admires and "favorites" and talks about. But sometimes I get the feeling these people can walk this earth with complete immunity -- if you listen to them,...

    1. Move.
    2. Get a real trainer.
    sorry - simple advice - but heartfelt. good luck.

    I am sorry no one else has replied to date.

    I trained a young mustang mare just off the range in Wyoming, and while she always felt it more important to go around jumps rather than over them, she...

    I've seen the browband style in person and it is spectacular!
  18. Bargain alert -- bids on this charity auction needed & take a look at WHO donated!

    Take a look:

    As far as I'm concerned there are a couple of superb bargains for eventers on that list! Support charities that involve horses, very important...

    There are three to five horses on that list that have me scratching my head; the rest I'm pretty OK with. I just spent half an hour looking up results at Red Hills, Fair Hill fall and spring,...

    Hmm. If I were designing a scientific test, I would do all of what you guys have done. Use the Ulcergard. Use the pop rocks. Use the pop rocks incorrectly. use generic omeprazole in some fashion....

    This is a great thread. Great story and great people! Scubed is in here too! And Gr8tful! couldn't be better

    What Yellow Britches said -- pay attention. I am a frequent violator of the Pay Attention Rule! to my own detriment!

    Yes I second Kurt Martin, results do mean something! Saw this pair jump around FHI CIC in spring and thought they deserved a mention. But there does not week to be much California representation.

    For eventing, this will be a very interesting WEG. In my opinion, the US is in a significantly improved position, having named some of our top cross country riders to the team, but our chances are...

    You can blame Brian Sabo and his crew for my addiction to the Dark Side. I leased a horse that was stabled at Woodland Hills Pony Club, and was enveloped into a great group of eventing evangelists in...
