    Well---unfortunately, I wouldn't call this area a "hotbed" of eventing (or even lukewarm) but if you have a trailer, there are options not too far away! For events and XC schooling, you need to...

    Can I join in on this thread? Because I now have a new and VERY green bean! Bought her in June and she is 3 years old. She was started in February for a month, then went back out into the pasture...

    Dune: I just noticed that you resurrected this 2 year old thread I posted! Yes, this all was resolved after the bone scan revealed what the issue was. We followed the protocol (stall rest, hand...

    When I was in Australia---this seemed to be the "thing" for tails at competitions. At least the upper level event we went too. It stood out to my husband because almost all of them were sporting...

    I ended up with a black jumping saddle as well (it was used, and I liked everything about it but the color!) But it's in great shape--not faded out. I have a black bridle anyway (I use my dressage...

    Do you work with a trainer? Could he/she come to the next show to help coach you in the warm up? Sometimes having someone there to give you "orders" will make you focus on your riding instead of...

    Absolutely! The show management was super accomodating and I really appreciated it. And the judge too--they actually had me start a few minutes before the rest of the rings started (7:55 am) so I'm...

    Materiale classes - questions

    My trainer has suggested that I get my 3 year old out toa show as a non-compete horse this summer or fall. She thinks it would be good to school in the warm up, let her see the sights, etc. This mare...

    Well, it would be good if you can do some cross-training and not just drill on ringwork. Add cavaletti's into one session a week. Do some trot sets out on the trails. Add a 20-30 minute walk in...

    I agree that you don't have to allow a trial for a young, green horse. But, you may want to bring the horse to a schooling location that is convenient for you, or have perspective buyers come watch...

    TrueColours: Yes---it is Doyles we are using. It makes me feel much better to hear that they are a legit business and horseman. The horse that has been at their place is only 2 years old and his...

    Oh my gosh--TrueCoulours---thank you so much for your offer. I may email you tomorrow if I don't hear anything from them. I am totally fine if they need to delay shipment for a week or so---I just...
  17. Professional shippers - are they all this bad at responding / communicating?

    Ugh---I am getting very anxious about the shipper I am dealing with. Long story short--my friend and I both purchased horses in Ontario. I have my own rig, but everyone told us that it's much...

    I manage to keep one horse in 6 days / week of work, the 2nd in light work (3-4 days). My 2nd horse is near retirement, so the rides are pretty much focused on "moseying" around to keep her...

    I did something completely stupid and bought another horse! I'm blaming the (currently) strong US dollar for my lack of restraint! ;) Pending a good PPE of course. But the horses (um, my friend...

    Yes! If you can swing it--it's worth it to get the members tickets. That gives you closer parking (if you are renting a car) and entry into the members area (where there are lovely food choices,...

    It might be good for this horse to be ridden more (as long as the riders are fairly good and are not undoing any training). It's good for the drafty types to be more fit otherwise they can become...
