    My reaction was like your Dad's-some of these $$ numbers are way too low.

    Somewhat related-a lot of upper level riders seem to be really opposed to the US CIC*** going back to SJ last because they prefer SJ before XC because the horses aren't tired. KOC mentioned it on...

    I do think it comes down to how the overwhelming majority of our riders are first taught to ride. We learn either at a Western barn or a generic american hunt seat barn. We do not spend a ton of...

    I don't like the idea of changing the name of a horse that's gone prelim already. If you have to, I'd go back to the Jockey Club name as close as possible without the dumb spelling. Why not Private...

    I meant no insult to Selena or her mother. I think Selena's a great rider. But having an FEI dressage rider schooling his event horses on a regular basis has certainly not hurt Boyd's dressage...

    He's not citing the Grand National as a bastion of horse safety. He's not comparing eventing to the Grand National, he's using the loose (riderless) horses at the Grand National jumping at speed...
