    Preparing at home is great, but often the horses are reacting to the rider's (and spectators', and other horses') tension(s) as much as the judge's box itself. And you can't really practice that...

    Apropos to nothing in the article specifically, but I'm a little sad people are leasing former Olympic/World Games/Pan Am Games horses for NAJRYC. I know some people can, and that's their...

    I wonder if she's not actually "on" your leg/seat aids. Sounds like she's either ahead of you (rushing/reactive) or behind you (have to push). I sympathize; my pony is this way. That just means you...

    I've met a couple horses that have this reaction. Some shut down to (perceived) contradictory signals, some might have pain somewhere, and some just strongly disagree with anything that may cause...

    I've got a dutch harness horse gelding that had similar issues. Really preferred to travel very UP, and out behind with his hocks.

    What I later realized as I was moving him up the levels is that...

    I'm a trainer of sorts. I have a career outside of horses but ride my client's horse 3-4 times a week and my own horse 4-5 times, depending on work travel. Not a typical trainer situation, I know,...

    Doritos. Gotta be Doritos.

    Or potentially the Locos Tacos.

    Still love 'em both. Much like how I love good literature but still sometimes read a trashy romance novel.

    The darned robins keep eating my strawberries, the darned rabbits keep eating my tiger lilies, and my darn dogs don't prevent any of this malicious behavior.

    But other than that, things are great.

    They actually covered that (briefly) in the movie in a way that I thought was maybe a bit trite, but because I love the continuity from previous films I'll let it slide.

    Nothing useful to add to the OP, but:



    I just destroyed a pair of show breeches thanks to downpour + saddle dye bleeding, and had to buy a new pair. I've taken the opposite stance as you: I'll...

    Similar issues over here.

    Until I fixed it.

    Now I'm over here sitting at my desk, perhaps looking a bit like a duck with my legs peddling but upper body stationary, but at least I'm warm and...

    Small (huge to us) brag of the week that I have to share anonymously on the internet, because my coworkers' eyes glaze over when they ask how my weekend went: my self-trained pony and I debuted at...

    While this is fair, my logic went something like this:
    Will my life ever be less complicated than it is right now?

    Super unlikely. My job will get more demanding the longer I work. I may have a...

    The benefit: free leases = 0 capital cost of entry to the horse biz for the lessee. The owner is taking all financial risk-- it's equally likely (or maybe even more likely) that the horse isn't...

    I'm currently in a similar boat. Work full-time, employer is sponsoring my technical masters, the 2 dogs need daily walks if possible, and I like to show my horse.

    Hate to say it... but most of this sport is "all the same things". Straightness. Suppleness. Engagement. Rinse, repeat. The only thing that changes up the levels is that it gets a bit more...

    I'm cnm161, and I definitely put the change on my young horse early, and I ride dressage. Wonder if I'm too old, underconfident, and lacking in an educated seat.
