    I hated second level. Stopped showing until third and fourth. Then it was fun again, for a while.

    Senden Horse - I agree about the 5x/wk aspect. I could not stand it nor could my horse. Lots...

    You hunted him last year didn't you? Did that make any difference?

    Hmmm - it's very nice to hear that the article is positive for so many of you.

    "Suck" is not part of my vocabulary so I guess I was interpreting it differently than most.

    What do we think of this?

    While I realize it's supposed to be amusing by being over-the-top, it makes me wonder how many folks actually think this way about their horses.

    I like to think about influencing the inside hind leg to reach under thereby displacing the barrel slightly to the outside and creating the bend. So you need to time your leg aid to match the moment...

    Jim - I think you've hit the solution - literally! Now that you mention borax I think that's what my exterminator used.

    As I said - one treatment, no recurrence of trouble.

    Local exterminator got rid of them in my newer (1840s) barn in one treatment. I presume he did the pesticide treatment that you describe. It was not a particularly big deal or big ticket ($$).

    I agree with 4fun - perhaps a buckle-end cheekpiece would work better than a stud end.

    Meanwhile, have you tried putting a small piece of sheepskin over the end of the cheekpiece?

    If you...

    Deer very possibly. Just for completeness, do you have any bears around there?

    We find that they are tough on electric fences around here. (Also Mid-Atlantic)

    I watched the whole thing on Safari with no interruptions at all. Go figure.

    Inflamed extensor tendon? Does not always involve lameness. Cold hosing or ice is good in any case.

    My 32-year-old is still wearing 4 shoes! Flat TB-style feet get sore even on nice grass turnout. Two shoes sounds good to me.

    If you have or can procure spare wooden posts, put the posts on the inside of the tape then rope them to the (presumably braced) corners making sort of a sandwich of the vinyl. You should be able to...

    You might want to check prices on "3/4 round" posts. Much easier to nail boards to, although probably more expensive. Half rounds are available more places and for less money but they do rot and...

    How often do you ride in the tall boots? If not often at home, then it's a little like switching bits on the day of the show.

    Before spending the money on new boots, you might want to ride in...

    She may be telling you that BN is boring now and she wants to go N.

    Seriously, if the fences are not helping to set her up, you may need to challenge her more. Or you may need to back up and...

    I second the vet suggestion. Could be low-grade laminitis, based on your comment about her weight.

    I have a pony who is sometimes strong. A tom-thumb jointed pelham is my go-to for show jumping and fox hunting. I use two reins and recommend that over a converter. The curb chain is tight enough...

    I was in your exact spot, including 3rd-level national All-Breed awards.

    I sold one through Galloping Grape in Warrenton , VA. Quick sale, good price, immediate payoff.

    Just a happy customer, not connected to the store.
