    Here's something. Did OP not say her current horse is a nice dressage horse?

    So ride dressage. The skills learned in dressage will be an asset when and if that A circuit horse shows up. As others...

    Recently saw a photo of a Friesian in GB with clean, clipped legs. Looked great -- but that's not the breed standard. Yes, you'd get drummed out of the Friesian corps for touching those dang...

    I'd say try Third 1 this year. If you goof, it won't hurt your Second Level scores and you'll get an idea where the weak spots are to focus on in the off-season.

    In retrospect, Third 1 was not all...

    I think BMI does not take into consideration the density of muscle, as others have stated. Yes, SEALS and pro athletes will weigh more for their height due to the muscle mass. People like that can...

    I think the BMI index is a fair guideline, though IMO, the low end of the weights is extreme. I doubt I could get out of bed and function if I weighed 110 lbs! I'm 5'4" and over the last 18 months...

    OK, now if they were offered in full seats for dressage....

    I used to find beautiful old wool breeches in the second-hand stores of Minneapolis. I clung to the pegged styles as long as i could.

    Hoping his blood work comes back clean and this is not a pain or disease related problem.

    Have you tried cavalletti grids or light jumping? it's a nice change from dressage work and has helped...

    OP, my current dressage horse started life as a pretty expensive imported jumper. He'd done a few shows in Germany before selling a the Verden elite Hanoverian auction. Sadly, he arrived in this...

    Wow, Sancudo, that TB looks like my WB in a bay coat! You've done a fabulous job of putting muscle on him!

    Love that TB/SB cross -- that's a new on on me. Also love that mule.

    I did a little...

    I voted 45 minutes, but when it's very hot my rides are much shorter or have more frequent walk breaks. Neither one of us does well in the heat. If the work has gone extremely well, we quit or hack...

    That judge was correct, though. If it's hot enough to waive coats, it's hot enough to have some concern for the rider's well being.

    I wish coats would be waived ANY time after the end of May until...

    I'm encouraged by this thread. I recently dyed a yellowish stock tie and it came out a very attractive pink, but I worried if it would be "over the top". Now I'm thinking it's perfectly fine.

    A couple of models come to mind. Several of the Neidersuss saddles I've tried have a slight tendency to the banana shape. Their seats measure 16.75 and 17.5. i used one of the 16.75's on my Arab, who...

    You can't "build them up" to work in too-deep footing. The risk of a soft tissue injury remains.

    I'd have no problem with an older schoolmaster -- but I would urge you to remove some of your footing if it's deep enough to make him work too hard. I've seen more than one good sound horse go into...

    Ben K. Green wrote several books, including "The Color of Horses" and "Horse Tradin'". He vetted around Fort Stockton, Texas for years.

    Worth looking up, and may be the book you"re thinking of?

    OP, I'd suggest if you can't afford the stabling at your regionals, you can't afford to go at all.

    My horse's comfort & safety would trump everything else.
