    It's one thing to curse out loud to yourself, and the FEI wouldn't take any notice, nor would any one here.

    Tina's words were personally aimed at someone else - in public, at a regulated sporting...

    She may be a "nut job" as an earlier post says, but she has at least 3 semi-high profile people defending her on the COTH Facebook comments. One is a USEF hunter judge, another is affiliated with the...

    Is this an ad ? I thought we couldn't post ads. Just curious because I posted info about a clinic once, and it was taken down.

    BTW, thank you for posting the info about Smart Pak !

    This story sounds familiar in some way. Wasn't there something that happened during WEG Kentucky that involved her ? She was at a bar, or talking with a group of people and got in to some trouble. ...

    Tina's unprofessional behavior, as described in the COTH article, is of a Big Fish in a little pond.

    By earning a yellow card, and figuratively shrugging her shoulders about the infraction, and...

    Coincidentally, one of the people I mentioned has since been approached by another horse show manager and was asked for a sponsorship. He agreed, and will support that show instead. It's a smaller...
  11. I believe one of them has called and left voice...

    I believe one of them has called and left voice mail. Both used the email addresses provided on the show organizer's website, and on show advertising.

    It's odd, isn't it. The show has had...

    .....what do you do ?

    In the past weeks I've heard the same question from two different people. Both had responded to an sponsorship appeal from a horse show organizer, who manages large shows on...

    The OP's story sounds very familiar to what has happened often at a private boarding/training barn in my area. The BO is notorious for delaying returning security deposits, or refusing to pay them...

    FWIW it was said on the "Rest Easy Cambridge" thread that many h/j show horses aren't insured, including the poor horse who was the subject of that thread.

    After reading the comments here about the spectator experience, who would want to go ?

    Nice to see them back in the ring and happy for their success. However there remain segments that are difficult to watch. JMHO.

    If it didn't have her name on it, how did they know when to play it ?

    And herein lies another issue. Discounting someone's problem, and suggesting that they ignore it and simply carry on.

    This is important to someone! It involves an investment of time, money,...

    CT can be tough, and has been known to speak poorly of her own clients after they leave the ring and they can't hear her.

    As riders looking for instruction, we're in a see-saw position. One minute...

    The point I was trying to make was that Tiger Paws' sweeping disparagement of affluent people would never have been tolerated on this thread if similar words were written about poor people.

    It was hors concours, so perhaps at a local show (non FEI), it's allowed.

    After reading the Eurodressage article, the thought occurred to me that maybe it's been MR who wasn't ready to ride in the...
