    I think a lot of people have gotten the English vs Western thing out of proportion. Hunters, jumpers , eventers, combined driving (?) and Paso Fino people must wear approved helmets to compete. That...

    I was going to suggest catalogs that cater to mules, as I've always heard of a bicycle chain bit as a "mule bit".

    I think you're set. Unless you're at a AA show and competing with a bunch of other perfect rounds in front of a fashionista judge, the direction your buckles are facing won't make a difference. You...

    Some people, like charliemyheart, are just lucky. Being smart or skilled or experienced has very little to do with it.

    I have nearly 60 years worth of experience with horses, all of it taking care...

    Yep. The show jumpers and eventers don't have nearly as many unknowns as the hunters. In the COTH Rolex issue they even have the JC name with the breeding...

    Information from commentators on a broadcast is entirely different from a compete CV in the arena during judging. On the air information is both appropriate and desirable!

    If you gflash back a few dozen years, there was resistance to English riders wearing helmets. First , USEF made them mandatory for juniors, then for all. There was grumbling, but if you wanted to...

    I don't understand the objection to a ONE TIME fee of $35-100 to catch cheaters. I also don't understand all the hand-wringing about how inconvenient and/or difficult/impossible it would be to...

    I hope that the quest for Big Eq. medals doesn't mess up the wonderful flow and touch that Tori Colvin has shown up to now. But I have my fears.

    The point that I was trying to make is that often once a horse clears quarantine here, so many of the passports "disappear" that a person trying to find a horse based on horses they see and like is...

    Just a few words for clarification. I think that it is very important in a discussion of breeding to distinguish between breeds and registries. TB's, Arabs, Morgans, QH's etc are breeds. Warmbloods...

    I think Bode brings a great deal to the table, not the least of which is name recognition. I think the hardest thing for him to adjust to as a trainer will be rehabbing horses. You can't put them on...

    Fun to watch, and the final test made the outcome very clear.

    After the terms of measurement (shoe allowance, tiny ( 1/4 inch) room for error) are clearly defined, the only ones that need to fret about random spot measurement are those already cheating. If...

    Thank you, findeight. That's exactly what I was trying to say. I wasn't considering how many strides to put in to make it look pretty, rather how many strides to put in so that you got out...

    I' going to try to say this in a way that doesn't sound too touchy-feely. I think that a big reason that TB's are not making it in Big Time JUmper-land is between their ears. In my experience, when a...

    Back in the dark ages, when the juniors needed to be split, they did it by odd and even numbers. Very fair.

    This is where I call bullshit. It isn't the size of thh pony that determines the length of stride, it's the athleticism. The "good mover-ness." I showed a 13.1/2 pony in the larges for a few years, (...

    What would be the point? OK . You made 15h the top for large ponies. So all the current cheating just moves up 2". You have not solved anything.

    HAven't you always been allowed to use a running? Back in the dark ages it was the only option in formal attire (Appointments, Corinthian) classes.

    I've just spent a few hours watching the ponies at Penn National, including the Winners Stake, (made up of all three divisions). I can't see what would be improved by having ponies of all sizes...
