    Can't help you with the training questions, as I'm an amateur who pays someone else for training. :-)

    There are many reasons to add a pro division.

    Some AA horse shows have very small divisions. There might only be 5 or 6 in a class, in which case the OP's example is relevant.

    I'm not aware of a Yelp for judges. I suppose it wouldn't be all that hard to start one on your own, but I just can't imagine it would be very useful. It's hard to imagine the feedback would be very...

    Thanks for everyone for the replies. I was trying to get a feel for Tryon's footing in particular as it seems there can be varying implementations of GGT-type footing. Based on the feedback, I...

    How's the footing at Tryon?

    In another thread, some people were concerned with the footing at Tryon. Has it gotten any better?

    We are looking at our fall show schedule and wondering whether we should make the trip.

    Just checked with my trainer. She says it's week one and mostly jumpers. So, not the entire horse show.

    I used Air Horse. Airhorse.com

    I was pretty happy with their service. They did a pretty good job of keeping me informed. This was my first time importing, so I can't compare them to anyone else.

    It's great to want to win, but with your level of experience, try to focus more on your own performance. Rather than focusing on the ribbons, try to set goals that are consistent with your riding...

    Yes, Saddlers Row has a bunch of stuff in the consignment section, including boots and apparel.

    Dover is nice, but the selection is not as broad as the catalog. Bring a copy of your catalog to...

    If you aim to catch a thief after the fact, then yes, put your label somewhere unnoticeable.

    But if your aim is to deter a thief, make the identifying mark BIG and put it somewhere noticeable. It...

    I'm more than happy to pay the commissions when they're fully earned. For a 15% commission, I expect the trainer to actively sell the horse. I should basically get a phone call that says 'I've got...

    I have a weird superstition about the reins. Buckle on the right, holes on the left. Not sure why. I just like that little pointy end pointing to the right. :-)

    Spur straps should point to the...

    The conformation division is typically smaller in the Midwest than the first year greens or the 3'6" performance hunters.

    At Spring Spectacular II this June, there were 5 horses in the green...

    No, you don't. But you will have to pay an extra fee.

    I leased a horse for a weekend at Ocala this spring. When I went to the office to do her paperwork, I had to pay an additional fee because...

    Thanks, amanda and supershorty.

    SS - did Nikki have the bowed tendon while she was showing in the conformation hunters?

    I got a new mare and am considering the division for her. She has a...

    Bummer. Too bad they couldn't reschedule for early fall. I bet it would be beautiful there with the leaves changing color.

    That is such an awesome idea!

    I just dropped off a pair of too-small, mocha-colored Ariat breeches at Goodwill this weekend. I figured someone might use them in a Halloween costume.

    And such a...

    Me neither. I was all 'oh geez, another sappy story'. Felt very stupid and humbled after I read it, as I wiped away my tears.

    I clicked on your link, feeling all sarcastic and waiting to see something sappy. Instead, I found my eyes welling with tears. Thank you.

  25. Tell me about your experience with conformation hunters

    Anyone shown (or had their trainer show) in the conformation hunters?

    Did your horse have any noticeable blemishes or conformation flaws?

    How perfect do they need to be, conformationally?
