    I disagree with a lot of these posters. Complete dead head schoolies are necessary when you are learning to be comfortable on top of a horse, but I strongly believe that riding one of them without a...

    Or rearing. I'd be wary of someone whose past "go-to" behavior under stress at least once was cheating.

    I would also be inclined to completely disregard the anecdotes presented by the above...

    True. From what I understand, Graham Motion was the trainer and when the horse retired, the owners sold the horse to Graham and his wife for a nominal amount (like $1) so that they could pursue a...

    I'm torn. On the one hand, it's a cute idea and I'm sure they'd love to raise some funds to help with the competition expenses, but on the other hand, as an adult, it would feel strange to join a...

    Why do you think the women are generally a lot better than the men? More effort? More experience beforehand?

    Maybe it doesn't count because that horse is jumping those jumps while fit. It's a big step to learn how to heave your rolls of fat over the jump.

    On a related note, there's an article in COTH...

    While I agree she can come across as a bit unaware in interviews, I don't think this one was that bad. The two things she pointed out as better over in Europe-1-better lifestyle for horse and rider...

    From everything I've ever heard about Amy Tryon herself, she would have appreciated/supported the original intent of the Beacon Charm grant so it's weird to me that the USEA thinks that replacing it...

    Glad to see Lauren Kieffer on there. Sad to see ML on there. Ambivilent about PD and Boyd. Not sure if he declared or was interested, but if the Pan Am's were still a win or go home proposition, I...

    I don't like the idea of a list with just the bare information because I don't think it can serve any purpose in making the sport safer. The only purpose of such a list would be to stir up public...

    Even more than product sponsorship, I am curious to know if they receive payment from riders for promotion. I would hope they'd feel the need to disclose that like they did with Jeep, but who knows....

    I think the EXO didn't catch on because it's too much like a helmet or a seat belt (uncool and effective) and not a fancy new mechanical device. Maybe they should have called it a personal roll cage...

    Which is absolutely apalling. That the USEF is telling people that they should look for calming agents that won't test yet is evidence that they really don't care if you cheat and drug your horse.

    Maybe that's the difference with Michael Jung. He can raise the bar in the dressage phase because he is also continuously schooling the xc phase. Also, by schooling solely by replicating the...

    Our dressage problem isn't the horses, it's the riders. I would like all of our team aspirants to have a pure dressage horse and spend some time doing pure dressage on that horse. Instead, they...

    WFP's horses can get themselves out of a bind. Even Michael Jung somehow instills a fifth leg in his horses. I suspect he incorporates more xc jumping into his training regimen than most of our...

    It's not so much polishing as a different audience. A lot of the mustang makeovers focus on Western riding/NH reining, trails, etc.
