    I would look at the timing of his starts. Were there any gaps in his racing? That can be indicative of time off for an injury.
    If he raced regularly with no gaps for that period of time and came...

    If you go to the USEA website- there is a booklet called something like The Starting Box Your guide to beginning eventing. At the end of that, there is a list of equipment (horse, rider, trailer,...

    My gelding had a liver issue about 4/5 months ago. His only outward symptoms were lack of energy (did not want to go back to turnout which is unusual for him) and a bit a jaundice visible in the...

    Asterix- if BoB carries a helmet or 2 that you would like to try, if you call them before an event they will be at and ask them to bring something, they will do it (or at least they used to). So if...

    I had that theory once but the selection of those types of helmets in the Crofton store when I was there a few months ago was miniscule and not really helpful for trying out these types of helmets. ...

    I have an oval head (CO Pro II fits me well) and the latest Tipperary Sportage does not fit me well at all. They used to be fine and I always used them in the summer because they were so light but...

    Whether you use the term heart horse (at your own risk on COTH :)) or not, there are just some horses or the horse that you become more attached and connected to and it has nothing to do with logic. ...

    Not disagreeing that there are valid reasons for giving a father say in where his children move to. I was simply referring to cases I was involved in when it was being used as leverage or to control...

    This times a thousand. If she did not even know what he was making until she saw a pay stub recently, then she does not know what she needs to know.

    Unfortunately, he may be able to use leaving the state as leverage for getting something else he wants. I don't know the laws in Texas, but have seen husbands use this leverage against the mother of...

    It is more than that. You did not even need to apply for or ever have a federal job to be affected. If you are a contractor with the feds and had a security background check or needed clearance for...

    If you are in or near a large city, there are often local publications that publish best doctor lists. I have used those as a piece of my doctor research multiple times and it can be a good start if...

    I am another one who would recommend trying Dr Green for a while to see what happens, especially since you don't have a diagnosis.

    I personally don't think any boot or wrap provides "support" to any internal structures. They help protect from external knocks and dings.
    So I use boots because they are easier, they provide more...

    They also bend over backwards to fit everyone in who wants to enter so I suspect that has an effect on entry numbers :)

    I have not gotten a letter but based on the latest news that everyone who has gotten a security clearance since 2000 are affected, I am assuming I was. I have checked credit reports. Good to know I...

    ESNZ says all he needs to do is sign it to "come back" (although that won't get him on the Aachen team which is what he is demanding). I agree it should be a minor issue- they all have to sign it.

    JER- talent does not give you a free pass on behavior. That is the problem in most major US sports and why professional athletes get away with criminal behavior all the time. It is not right in any...

    Sounds to me like he walked because they would not put him on the team for the Aachen event and not that it has to do with vets. That seems consistent with reports of his past diva behavior. ...
