    I use either an old stirrup leather or the nylon one from Bartville. You can also just use the neck part of an old standing martingale. I wouldn't worry hugely about them not being breakaway since...

    Pretty sure that is where the D-SJ-XC thing originated.

    In this area it is the normal format, but most of our events are one day anyway. I definitely prefer it!

    If you can have him come in for a few hours (or even just an hour or so while he eats one meal) I would do that, just because I think it's really good for them to be handled daily, assuming the...

    Personally, I like the layers to be waterproof/ resistant at least in rainy weather as I find that things often don't line up perfectly and the underneath layers can get damp. I also want more than...

    I've never not seen them do vitals and rectal, even when the horse was clearly a surgical or euthanasia case. Mos t tube as well, although in all honesty I've only seen horses either recover quickly...

    I don't generally do a ton at that level, especially with a TB. Maybe one day a week do a couple of trot and canter sets, but I doubt you really need more than a couple of 2 or 3 minute canters.

    If she is otherwise really healthy I might. It sounds like you don't have much to lose at this point. I have a friend who had a 12 or 13 year old cat with a similar lump at the base of his tail. ...

    I think that just means they are only seeing the horse jog in a straight line on a hard surface as opposed to on a circle or in deep footing and it should not be taken as a guarantee of soundness...

    There aren't really any rules about girth material.

    I have a mare that has to live in a mask April- October. The only thing that works for her is to switch brands/ styles frequently so that she doesn't develop pressure sores.

    Those are just options for the event to potentially offer. The prizelist should tell you what is actually being offered. If it just says "Combined Test" it almost certainly means dressage and...

    What are you entering? Is it unrecognized? They probably have a prizelist on the website that describes what you can and cant do. Generally though a combined test is dressage and stadium not cross...

    I would think about bloodwork for Cushings. I have seen a couple of horses in that ag3 range who were just not quite where they should be and that turned out to be the cause.

    Well, for one thing, we haven't managed to successfully rewire people's minds, and the risks of trying are tremendous. And for another, people would have to choose to be rewired, and they might...

    Look for hunter trials or paces or event derbies. But xc is generally judged by getting around within the optimum time so not a great way to differentiate between clear tounds.

    Does she have hind shoes/ studs? Maybe it is a confidence issue-- IME they seem to worry more about it in stadium than xc.

    To clarify, an MR is a fall of horse. A rider fall is an RF at USEF events and an E at FEI stuff.

    Dance With Ravens would be my first choice. That said, I think breeding for jump racing is even less financially viable than breeding for flat racing.

    I think they're mostly to introduce new questions at the smaller height in a competition setting (ie for their own sake, not to really change the standings.)

    For most people, time isn't really a factor until they get to Training or Prelim anyway, though. I've had stops at BN/ N and still made the time easily.
