    JP60, once again we find ourselves in agreement. Except I've had a generous glass of Rose' and I'm betting you didn't before your cogent post ;).

    Thank you Viney. A lovely tribute to Karen, and I agree with Nevertime that it includes a brief but accurate description of eventing. Was that written by the USEA or the Times? (In case I want to...

    Thanks for the clarification, Beowulf. Having read some of your posts over the years, I thought it strange that you'd expect a horse to event training level after a month of training, but felt I...

    No suggestions at the moment, but after a winter like the last one we had, you really want 24/7 turnout in February? And you've described a pretty ambitious goal for one month's training. Best of...

    Consider APF/ APF Pro from Auburn Labs. NOT cheap, but I know both horses and humans who have benefitted from it. (I am link-challenged, but a quick search should reveal the site.)

    Not a vet and don't even play one on TV, and I've never had a hygroma (which of course means one of my horses will suddenly develop one within the week).
