    I agree, at this point I'd contact my credit card and tell them the item was never delivered. Get the charge reversed, and look for something different. One thing I like about Custom Saddlery is...

    Sorry, this just made me chuckle. I'm pretty sure dressage is quite ethically diverse already. Maybe not ethnically diverse, but I have seen quite a few different types of ethics involved:lol:

    RAAC is not a championship show - it is run like one, has qualifying requirements, but it is NOT a championship show (it is Regional Adult Amateur Competition, not Championship). Exploding Pony is...
  4. I do agree with you, but having spent time on the...

    I do agree with you, but having spent time on the Breeding Forum, this very same comment is tossed out over and over by the WB breeders about other breeds. And then they don't understand the...

    Well, interestingly, in Europe, they've been crossing Arabs and Friesians - Arabo Friesians. Irish Sport Horse is also a very different type of horse, pretty much the opposite of Arab. The point,...

    Not in New England, but in Cali, that price would be anywhere from $5k to $35k! It all depends on the quality of the horse. If it is competitive (scoring high 60s, perhaps low 70s) at rated shows,...

    I've done several Friesian crosses, and all have been great at dressage or eventing. While the purebred Friesians struggle with stamina, the crosses seem to have a better time with it. I know a...

    Contact Tamara with the Camera - it is her mare. I think her user name is Stripes here.

    On the topic of the Domperidone - some vets sell prescription meds at cost, others mark up substantially. I don't quite understand why there is so much variation in the industry! My regular vets...
  10. http://www.rijlaarzen.nl/en/petrie-riding-boots/...

    http://www.rijlaarzen.nl/en/petrie-riding-boots/ is a good source, as is Divoza and Amira for buying European boots.

    I had a maiden mare that went over 390 days. Foal was FINE, a bit lax in the fetlocks, but turned out to be a lovely boy. Four years old now, and starting his riding career (and quite fancy). Some...

    If stalls were priced similar to 2 days of haul in fees, I'd rent a stall! But around here (I think most of Cali), the stalls are $150 to $200 for the weekend. PLUS shavings costs! Show management...

    Think a bit about dribbling a basketball with your seat - you need to move with the movement! Don't try to stay still, try to stay WITH the back. And if necessary, just sit a few steps, then post...

    This! We so often hear about the sire, but the dam line has a LOT to do with temperament and ability...

    And even with generalities, an individual can be so much different then its siblings. ...

    You are in California so you'll have to join CDS. That does get you a GMO membership in USDF. Generally, non-FEI classes are about $55/class. Drug fees are $16, and office fees and haul in fees...

    Ugh... Commissions are part of what gives this business a bad name! One trainer said she got a commission when a horse sold because she had increased their value through her riding. But - that is...

    If everything else is good, the trot extension is ONE movement. If you can get 7s on much of the rest of the work, and get a 5 on the extension, you still have close to 70%. If you get 6s and 7s on...

    Agree with Merry - other then the flying changes, 3rd level isn't really any harder. Assuming your horse is confirmed in the lateral work - going from SI and HI to HP is not a huge jump. And many...

    But in the US, Morgans were specifically selected for the Cavalry, so why aren't they accepted in the sport world? And in ancient war, the Friesian was the breed of choice, so why not Friesians? I...

    Are you in Nor-Cal? Because I know the same story! And the owner is showing the horse now!

    Totally agree Crockpot. I think this is the BEST we've seen of Team Toto/Rath, but still nowhere near the harmony and smoothness we see with Toto/Gal. I'm bothered by the many little goose/scoots I...

    Wow, I wish I could get $40/hour! Going rate for an L here (California) is about $200 to $250/day - mileage if you have to travel too far (to some of the more remote areas). An "r" is about the...

    So, we should stick with the horses originally bred for dressage? Wouldn't that be the Lippizan?

    I guess I disagree with so much in your post. First of all - there are some high quality horses...

    Does anyone know how lightweight these are? And how they fit? I was looking at them a couple of days ago, but there is not enough info on the website to give a clue!
