    Most of these horses are 17h plus. The fences are only 3'6". Looks like they're doing just fine to me.

    someone posted this on the "someone snatch up this filly" thread, and I thought I'd make a new thread for it for a couple of reasons -

    to clarify - I said "LEARNING to use draw reins" refines (or enhances) one's horsemanship skills. Just like LEARNING to use spurs, or long lines, or how to lunge a horse. Don't need to use any of...

    well, just shows how little I know. I guess I just hoped eventers would be as interested as h/j riders in developing and refining ALL their horsemanship skills.

    That's the [most ridiculous] thing I've ever heard.

    I think you should ask yourself a LOT of questions, like "what's best for my horse?" "what's best for me?" "how can I work with this coach and...

    I’m not very familiar with IHSA programs, but running martingales aren’t permitted in hunters. If your horse needs a standing martingale, great. If he doesn’t then it won’t make any difference, it’s...

    If you're not new to the discipline than you should be well aware of where the trainer was coming from with her statement.

    It's amazing to me how many people are jumping all over this trainer for telling you that you're too big for your horse - they haven't seen you on the horse.

    I don't see why a trainer would be opposed to doing this for a client, this happens all the time. Any decent trainer should have good enough connections to find you an appropriate horse for a short...
